What is it that makes ladies like Leigh Lezark, Hannah Bronfman and Harley Viera-Newton so cool? They’re not just on the VIP list for all the fashion inner circle soirees, they’re the ones spinning the decks in the DJ booth. But besides being in the know about the latest party tracks, these girls seem to turn up to every event and nail that too-cool-for-school, hipster look. Ready to take their style for a spin? We’ve got everything you need to get the DJ girl look—minus the playlist.
Harley Viera-Newton is one of those cross-over models who not only does collaborations with designers and sits front row at shows, but also headlines as a DJ at clubs and fashion gigs—all with the It-girl know-how to regularly land her looks on style blogs. Take her outfit at the Splendid Celebrates Summer Fun and Friendship event: we love the way she remixed a retro dotted button-up with on-trend accessories like embroidered smoking slippers and eccentric sunglasses. Mixer Hannah Bronfman is no stranger to the style scene either. The heiress, who has her own green clothing line, always rocks her individuality when she DJs star-studded events from Coachella to Fashion Week. She put a white-hot spin on festival fashion at the Chandon American Summer Soiree, dressing up a grungy graphic tee with a crisp origami skirt and adding some color with a pair of pointy pumps and a collar necklace.
If Tennessee Thomas’ name doesn’t give her some style cache, surely being BFFs with Alexa Chung does (and you can see the hipster maven’s influence in her DJ friend’s wardrobe). The drummer for British group The Like has played at and created playlists for countless NYFW runways. At Glamour’s These Girls event, she gave a basic sheer black dress a playful touch with polka dot tights, metallic shoes and a heart-shaped purse. Finally, there’s style icon/DJ Leigh Lezark of The Misshapes. If her super-stylish Instagram dispatches from all the A-list events she DJs aren’t proof enough that she’s a welcome fixture in the fashion world, her effortlessly elegant look at Barneys' 60 Years of Chloe event is: she styled a one-piece-wonder pair of striped silk harem pants with a breezy tank and gold slippers for an ensemble that’s perfect for some summer night lounging—to the perfect tunes, of course.
