Halloween attire: the subtle and chic way
The Atomics try out patching, spooky prints and black lipstick in this week’s H&M Style Diaries.
H&M STYLE DIARIES PART V
Every third week, we check in with The Atomics to find out where they are, hear what they’re up to – and see which H&M items they’ve chosen to wear.
• Daisy is 21, a model and the lead guitarist in The Atomics. She lives in Los Angeles
DAISY, WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO SINCE WE LAST CONNECTED?
“The last three weeks I have mostly been preparing for our show. I’ve also been doing all sorts of DIY projects for my room. I decided it needed to be spiced up a bit.”
YOU PLAYED YOUR FIRST SHOW IN LA LAST NIGHT! DO YOU EVER GET NERVOUS BEFORE GOING ON?
“No I don't really get nervous, I just get really really excited! I was especially excited about the show last night because it was the first time all of my LA friends got to hear our music!”
IS THIS YOUR HALLOWEEN OUTFIT OR JUST AN EVERYDAY SKELETON TOP?
“I am wearing a skeleton-print body suit with high-waist black skinny jeans and some boots. Also, some witchy rings! This look could be my pre-costume Halloween outfit for sure, but I would definitely wear it any day of the year. You don’t need a holiday to feel spooky! Halloween is one of my favourite holidays – if you can't already tell.”
• Lucky is 18 and one of the world’s most successful male models. He plays the drums in The Atomics and lives in Los Angeles
WHAT GOES THROUGH YOUR MIND WHEN YOU PUT AN OUTFIT TOGETHER IN THE MORNING?
“My first thought is ‘is this clean?’ Haha. I just kind of find whatever looks cool.”
WHAT ARE YOU WEARING TODAY?
“I’m wearing an all-black look with some ripped jeans and a hoodie under a cool shiny jacket.”
YOU PERFORMED IN LA LAST NIGHT. WHAT GOES THROUGH YOUR MIND WHEN YOU PLAY A DRUM SOLO?
“I don’t really plan it out, I just let my arms go and do what they do.”
• Starlie is 22, lead singer in The Atomics and lives in Los Angeles
WHAT ARE YOU WEARING TODAY?
“I am wearing a purple bodysuit under a black skirt & boots. It's very California in October”
WHAT’S YOUR PREFERENCE: PRINTED OR PLAIN T-SHIRTS?
“I like plain shirts because I really love to wear cool jackets. I don't want anything too busy distracting from the main statement.”
WHAT DO YOU NEED RIGHT NOW?
“I need thigh-high velvet boots & glitter lips.”
• Pyper is 19, she models and plays the bass in The Atomics. She lives in Los Angeles
TELL US ABOUT YOUR LOOK!
“I’m wearing a pink cropped tank top with an oversized army green shirt with cool patches. I think this outfit has a lot of personality and it’s super comfortable!”
WHAT MADE YOU FALL FOR THESE ITEMS?
“I love the patches on the shirt! The colour combination is also really cool.”
WHAT SONGS ARE YOU LISTENING TO NON-STOP RIGHT NOW?
“Outta My Mind by The Arcs, Head in The Dirt by Hanni El Khatib, and of course our song Voulez Vous by The Atomics since we just released it! I’ve been sharing it with all of my friends!”
Every third week, Starlie, Daisy, Pyper and Lucky give us an update on where they are, what they’re doing and what look from H&M Divided they’ve chosen to wear this particular day. Check out the hashtag #HMStyleDiaries on Instagram and Twitter for more good stuff.
