She may not have won a Grammy, but Meghan Trainor’s recent explosion on the music scene offers a refreshing reggae-hip-hop sound, and a distinctive sense of style. Not even 6 months after her hit single, “All About That Bass” hit the music waves (and #1 on Billboard’s Top 100), this 20-year old is gearing up for a new album drop, a US tour and a media frenzy over her “body-positive” lyrics.
This blonde beauty is more than just a pop icon however; her musical talent began years ago along the east coast in Nantucket. Trainor took on guitar lessons while living near Cape Cod, just one of the many instruments she can play. She is also proficient in bass guitar, keyboards, trumpet, and ukulele. After moving to Nashville, Trainor entered the music industry as a song writer, crafting lyrics for multiple genres. Her potential as a recording artist was recognized by executives at Epic Records after hearing Trainor’s demo for “All About That Bass,” where she was soon signed as new artist. Her debut album “Title” recently released in January 2015.
Trainor takes a unique approach when it comes to her fashion choices. Her retro-mod, yet feminine pieces are bright, fun, and figure flattering. Trainor’s outfits border between candy-colored pin-up silhouettes or classic east coast prep. Duplicating her signature ensembles is easier than you think. Guitar Girl Magazine breaks down her popular fashion moments and explains how you can get the look.
Pin-up Pastel Beauty:
For Trainor’s debut music video, she and her entire cast dawn head-to-toe Easter-like pastels. Beyond shades of baby blue and lavender, Trainor also takes on a ’50s influence with circle dresses, vintage brooches, and sweet buttoned cardigans. Copy this look with flower crowns or hair bows.
Black and White Prep:
In Trainor’s latest video, “Lips Are Movin’”, she moved towards a cleaner, black and white palette with pops of bright hues. Graphic designs play a big roll, either dynamic patterns or fun images. Get this look by mimicking Trainor’s love of high-waisted skirts and knee highs.
