How Maggie Rogers describes her personal style. Maggie May has seen her career go from strength to strength since bursting onto the scene via a viral YouTube video of her song ‘Alaska’ in 2016.
She told US Vogue: “It was easier for me to play a character onstage, to dress up and suit up to access this performance mentality.
“I do like that sometimes, but I also want to make sure that it’s enough if I just show up in whatever I’m wearing.
“I’m finding some middle ground between these elements. I want my performances to be fun. Some nights I’ll wear jeans and a T-shirt and others I’ll wear this velvet zebra-print two-piece.”
“I like glitter, I like fringe, I like shiny things. I also like raw fabrics. I guess at this moment, I describe my personal style as a mix between a space cowgirl and a San Francisco art teacher.”
The singer – who toured with Mumford & Sons last year – feels her style is always ‘evolving’ as she likes to experiment with ‘different garments’ to complete her onstage persona.
She added: “There are different expectations for your wardrobe depending on your gender and your genre. Women in rock are still very different than women in pop, and also, like when I was on tour with Mumford & Sons, they would just get onstage in whatever they were wearing that day. Most female performers feel like they can’t get away with that. I like for my style to be almost so perfectly not a part of the story.
“Personal style, like music, is something that is always evolving. I like a lot of different things and that’s just who I am.”
