Free People Style Muses: Madeline Follin Of Cults

For this months’ style muse series on the blog, we wanted to feature one of our favorite female musicians with style that inspires us, and Madeline Follin of Cults immediately came to mind. In addition to her talent, she has a natural beauty and signature style that consists of vintage dresses and unique thrift finds, a bold red lip and perfect long waves. I had the pleasure of visiting Madeline in her East Village home to snap some photos of her style and learned that she is just as obsessed with nail art as we are! Check out the photos and read an interview with Madeline below.

This varsity jacket was an amazing find from a thrift store outside the city in Jersey. She also told me she’s so obsessed with nail art and polish she often does her nails on the tour bus, much to everyone else’s chagrin.

Get the look with our FP New Romantics Quilted Baseball Jacket.

Madeline’s personal style consists mainly of vintage dresses, and I loved this rose colored fit n flare style with its sweet lace collar. Paired with black tights and flats, she looks classic and put together.

Another fit ‘n flare style vintage dress! I love how she paired this classic white dress with a denim and lace jacket and converse – she got her cute floral-lined pair on tour in Japan.
