My boyfriend will tell you I have a shallow taste in music. It’s true; typically I like random songs that are currently popular on the radio and then I listen to them over and over again until I wear them out. I call it “Teletubbie Syndrome.”
One of my favorite videos is “Helena” by My Chemical Romance. Not just for the melody, but for the fashion and choreographing. It’s dark and morbid, with a sense of style and finesse. It has a 1940s vibe to it. You have guys dressed in suits and fedoras, and the women in dresses, fitted jackets and fascinators.
I know I’m guilty of associating punk style with Hot Topic but there is a real sense of style in the video. I would absolutely run out and buy one of those black dresses and hats. It makes a dramatic statement without being stereotypical.
