  • (upbeat techno music)

  • - Hey guys, I'm Diana, an art director at Bustle,

  • and this is Thrift the Legend.

  • I'm here at Buffalo Exchange.

  • Let's see who we have this week.

  • (dramatic techno music)

  • Billie Eilish.

  • Billie Eilish.

  • We should call her Billie the maximalist.

  • Billie takes oversized to a whole new level.

  • Oversized on oversized.

  • (dramatic techno music)

  • Billie is so open about wanting people

  • to focus on her music instead of her body,

  • but that doesn't mean that she doesn't have fun

  • with what she wears.

  • Now that I see all these really crazy prints,

  • I think it's something that she would do.

  • I'm excited to try.

  • With a black lipstick?

  • Billie is so much fun to think about and talk about

  • as an art director because everything she wears

  • is, for the most part, art.

  • She takes things that seem really mundane

  • and makes them high fashion.

  • She takes high fashion and makes it street.

  • It's Billie.

  • (upbeat techno music)

  • When Billie Eilish first came on the scene

  • wearing oversized basketball shorts

  • with shirts that were clearly so big on her,

  • people were really confused.

  • Now, designers are hungry to add these things

  • to their collection.

  • She's really changing the way that we think about

  • fashion as an art form.

  • Billie also does the monochrome really well,

  • so I'm gonna let my eyes glaze over the racks,

  • and just find really crazy colors.

  • Oh my gosh, wow.

  • I think she wears colors that are considered feminine

  • really well, and she makes them edgy,

  • so a light pink, or a light green,

  • it's no longer masculine or feminine.

  • It's just cool.

  • I mean, cute or crazy?

  • This is weird, but I like it a lot.

  • I want this.

  • Can I buy this?

  • There are so many things about Billie's style

  • that you can access.

  • Having a personal style, moving through

  • different color waves, different patterns,

  • not needing to completely reinvent yourself,

  • I just love this.

  • It just makes me smile.

  • I love it with the track pants,

  • and it's got a hood, hmm.

  • Yeah, I love this so much,

  • and I think you can dress it up or down.

  • I'm obviously wearing a red lip.

  • Rings, pile a bunch of them on there.

  • You could dress it up, or you could be

  • super casual about it, put a baseball hat on.

  • (upbeat techno music)

  • Having a personal style, moving through

  • different color waves, different patterns,

  • Billie completely broke the mold

  • of what a typical pop star looks like.

  • Changing gender norms and size norms,

  • she almost has a uniform at this point,

  • but we're still so excited to see what she does next.

  • Designers are taking note

  • that this is what people are into.

  • What immediately comes to mind is how Chanel

  • took the Billie aesthetic and made a custom suit

  • for her for the Oscars.

  • Billie's style is all about just being true to yourself,

  • and being comfortable in your own skin,

  • so when I put this on, it just made me so happy.

  • I think that's what it's all about.

  • If you're trying to be inspired by Billie,

  • just go oversized.

  • Let me know who you want me to emulate next.

  • Like, subscribe, and don't miss a second.
