Latest clothes in the Kerli category
Kerli flashed some peace signs backstage at Identity Festival while wearing the WOMP Crop Top from Let’s Rage Clothing ($28.84). Kerli loves cyber and raver fashions and these tops come in four colors that are not only neon but also UV reactive.
Kerli is wearing a Neon Pink & Black Sheer Mesh Bodysuit ($34.95) from eBay seller tambukiki. This cyber/raver style romper has sheer mesh panels on the chest and sides and really cool structural sleeves. The pink version is sold out at the moment, but you can still buy it in lime green.
Kerli wore The In The Dark Bra Top in Black from BOTB by Hellz Bellz (sold out) with cross print leggings and massive platform shoes. These leggings are available about a million UK-based clothing stores starting at £5.99, including Miss Rebel, Pop Couture, Bang on the Trend, Miss Behaver, Karma Clothing, Chiara Fashion, and Funky Divaa. You can get them for even less on eBay, which I assume is where Kerli got hers.
Kerli’s street style is a mix of outlandish raver and goth-inspired clothing with more everyday pieces. She’s got some crazy futuristic hair and pants, but her bag is much more “normal” even though it’s still very bold. You can get her Hello Kitty White Quilted Face Bag by Loungefly for $44.00.
Kerli is wearing the Shakespeare Quote Tank Top from Forever 21 ($10.90) which has the quote “Love all. Trust few. Do wrong to none” from Williams Shakespeare’s play All’s Well The Ends Well. Her studded suede wedges are the Womens Royal Palace from Shiekh Shoes ($32.97). Kerli says that she got her argyle leggings on eBay, but I can’t find her exact pair. You can get a similar pair for $8.94 shipped. She’s also wearing a brooch from Ghost Love.
Kerli mixes pastel pinks and whites for this sexy lingerie look. Her shoes are the Pleaser Teeze-04R Platform Pump with baby pink rhinestones ($145.65), though the glitter version is a lot cheaper. You can get her look with a white satin garter belt for $26.99 on eBay, pastel pink ruffle shorts for $10.39 on Amazon and a silver claw spiked collar or white spiked collar from Vampire Freaks ($18.99 and $16.99). Unfortunately I couldn’t find anything quite like her puff sleeved lace crop top.
Kerli goes for a pin-up look wearing vampy makeup and black clothing. Adding to the retro feel of this shoot is her black fascinator headpiece – you can find thousands of similar ones on Etsy. Her black and white spectator pumps with are the Pleaser Delight-688 ($69.95). I love the mary jane straps, but those platforms are insane! Kerli wears boots more often than pumps, but she’s certainly no stranger to heights. She loves wearing super-tall homemade platform sneakers like these.
Kerli may have an outrageous style, but beneath her handmade and customized accessories, she sometimes wears pieces from more normal stores like American Apparel. She wore their Stretch Lace Diamond Grid Bodysuit ($38.00) as part of an all-white ensemble at San Francisco Pride.
Watch Kerli show Buzznet her closet of crazy customized clothes, shoes and headphones. Kerli is extremely creative with her fashion, hand-making or customizing most of her pieces. The end result is a very unified wardrobe that’s full of pastels, lace, and teddy bears – but with a bit of a hard industrial edge.
on making her own fashion:
“A lot of the things I wear I make, or have a really special meaning to me. My mom actually – because I grew up in Estonia and we didn’t have a lot when I grew up – so my mom made all my clothes. So last year she made me this jacket for the “Army of Love” video…She’s the best mom in the world.”
on learning to customize shoes:
“So these shoes actually have a lot of memories for me. I wore them in the “Walking on Air” video. I was working with this amazing stylist Frank. Frank taught me how to customize my own shoes. And at that time I wasn’t even really making, like I was making some things, but I wasn’t really making things the way that I’m making things now. Frank had all these spikes and chains and he was screwing them on these shoes and I was like ‘oh my God, this blows my mind, like you can actually customize and make everything your own.’ So Frank opened a Pandora’s box of customizing everything so now I can’t just wear something the way it is.”
on how the Spice Girls influenced her love of super-tall platforms:
“I really used to be a huge fan of the Spice Girls, and they’re a massive style inspiration for me. I kind of see myself as a gothic twisted Spice Girl.”
on “shoe-lery” (shoe jewelry):
“I wanted to give you this cool idea I came up with, I call it “shoe-lery.” So this is a little elastic strap, an embellishment, and you can take it off and put it on different shoes. I’ve been on tour so I haven’t had time to make more, but I want to make these with all kinds of crazy colors and different styles. I like this idea a lot, it make life really easy.”
on her collection of headphones
“I love headphones because I think music is the most amazing thing in the world and I’m really inspired by everything music-related. These are the the headphones from the “Army of Love” promo shoot that I did. And then I’ve just been adding on to them because I want to make them fresh and new, so I’ve been adding on to them for these different shows. I love headphones and I have a lot of them.”
Singer-songwriter Kerli wears a pastel interpretation of cyber-goth style which she has dubbed “Bubblegoth.” She says:
I call my style “Bubblegoth” because I get a lot of inspiration from super Lolita very sweet things but also very hard things. Our slogan says “make dark things beautiful and beautiful things dark”. We just put together things that don’t really go together, so it’s always like the twisted babydoll or the really cute dominatrix. It always very extremes together.
Here she wears the strappy fishnet Transformer Top from punk brand Lip Service with a zippered micro mini skirt and black and white diamond tights from Leg Avenue. She’s rocking some extreme platform boots that remind me of a wedding cake with their layers of pearls and lace. She goes for sweet accessories – a teddy bear purse and white lace gloves.
