5. Davey Havok – AFI
I’ve still got a soft spot for Davey Havok ca. 2003, but the cleaned-up bad boy look he’s been working since Crash Love is pretty great. Just like AFI’s music, Havok’s style is always changing, and I can’t wait to see what he rocks next.
4. Chris Motionless – Motionless In White
Even if his style isn’t for you, you’ve got to admit: Chris Motionless has created a strong look that works for him. Plus, you have to admire the guy’s attention to detail. I still want him to give me an eye makeup tutorial.
3. Ash Costello – New Years Day
I don’t know if goth-glam-cute is a thing, but it should be because it sums up Costello’s style perfectly. Even when she’s clutching a bleeding human heart, all I can think is, “I wonder where she got that necklace.”
2. Sherri DuPree-Bemis – Eisley
DuPree-Bemis is one of those no-longer-so-elusive manic pixie dream girls: Everything she touches turns into quirky adorableness. Who else can pull off faded neon green hair, a doughnut sweater and oversized sunglasses? Or electric blue hair, over-the-knee socks, beat-up Chuck Taylors and an adorable doll-like dress? I could go on, but by now you’ve probably stopped reading and pulled up DuPree-Bemis’ Instagram to see if the outfits I speak of are true. Oh, they are—and they’re even cuter than words can describe.
1. Hayley Williams – Paramore

Who else could top our list of musicians whose closets we want to raid? There isn’t a fashion trend (or shade of orange hair color) that Williams hasn’t tried, and while not all her outfits are winners, you’ve got to admire her willingness to wear anything once.
