One of the biggest influences on fashion is definitely music. And not just the lyrics, musicality or “sick beats,” but the performers are equally inspiring in their own unique ways.

Besides sharing your playlist on Spotify, another great way to show your musical preferences is by letting what’s blasting in your earphones inspire your head-to-toe look.

In honor of tonight’s Grammy Awards, we decided to showcase some looks inspired by some of our favorite nominees. So regardless whether you are most excited to see if Kendrick Lamar makes history or for the inevitable awkward Taylor-Kanye run-in, be sure dress the part.

Nicki Minaj—Bold details and colorful combinations—Miss Minaj’s sense of style mirrors her lyrical stylings.

Florence + The Machine—From lace anything to high-waisted trousers, the key to locking down Florence’s iconic look is simple: the more ’70s bohemian, the better.

Taylor Swift—She may have gone pop with her 1989 record. But let’s get real, Miss Swift will always have a little country in her heart (and style).
