THE JUICE SPILLS
Our cool AF summer playlist
What’s summer without chilled out sundowners+brewskis, and a kickass playlist to help you get through those long, hot days and evenings, no? So, we got Team Juice to spill the beans on whatever they are streaming atm – a lil jazz, a lil pop with a bit of alternative thrown in. We give you songs that are part-zany, part-cool – not just their lyrics, but also the totally cray vids that have been giving us some serious #FashionEnvy of late.
Akansha Kalakoti (I like it – Cardi B)
The plunging kaftan+those out-there earrings+and that colourful turban, the vid had a lot of other totally snag-worthy ensembles, but we just couldn’t get our eyes off this one in particular for its whole tribal-happy vibe.
Sachitananda Bista (Where U Are – Rina Sawayama)
The London-based singer-songwriter is nothing if not cool, and all her vids have been setting major #coolgirlgoals for us since like forever now. We totally concur with the “disco sucks” tee, and those dewy lids+the bleach blonde brows.
Priyamvada Mehran (Watch me – Jaden Smith)
Grown up as he might be, we’ve come to the conclusion that even when J. Smith reaches the ripe ‘ol age of 40, he’ll still be that lil boy with braids in ‘The Karate Kid’ to us. Don’t hate on us Jada & Will, your lil boy’s still cool in that spiffy leather jacket+those glares.
Soumya Kant (M.I.L.F.$. – Fergie)
Miss Fergie pulled off a fashion coupe of sorts with this vid, as she brought together everyone from Amber Valletta to Chrissy Teigen, Devon Aoki to Ciara and Isabeli Fontana, and who can forget Jon Kortajarena, the guy all our durrrty dreams were made of. Sigh.
Ruhi Baweja (Come meh way – Sudan Archives)
The coolest old new beat we’ve heard in a while (it’s like one of those songs you fell in love with instantly, but just couldn’t place, but no more, ‘cos Shazam). We loved the whole LWD+gold hoops combo that Brittney Parks was rockin’.
Ojasvita Chandra (Formation – Beyonce)
Speaking of Queens, how can we forget Queen Bey? We loved us the whole goth-goes-to-New Orleans vibe with all that stacked up silver jewellery and those totally Southern plaits.
Aashna Jain (Needed me – Rihanna)
Making listicles 101: Queen Riri must always always be on it, both for her badass clothes (the sheer dress+that bejewelled neck was hot AF)+that attitude that her mama gave us.
Jahnavi Prasad (I do – Cardi B)
With Cardi B giving a shoutout to everyone from Saint Laurent to Givenchy and Gucci in the vid, Miss B gets full marks for that monochrome striped shirt, those pink lips and those gigantic gold hoops.
Huma Hazarika Sharma (Hellifornia – Gesaffelstein – Alexander Wang SS ’18 runway show)
‘Cos the backdrop was the Alexander Wang Spring-Summer’18 runway show+and we had everyone from Kaia Gerber to the Hadid siblings strutting their stuff in some pretty cool ready-to-wear.
Devyani Goel (One Kiss – Dua Lipa)
‘One Kiss’ is all it took for us to fall in love with this song (lol..cheesy we know, but so darn true). We love how Dua Lipa keeps it stylish, but simple enough for us to snag her look right out of a catalogue.
Nitiz Kaila (Nikes – Frank Ocean)
‘Thinking about you’ got us thinkin’ about him, and there’s no way we are getting over this multi-talented artist anytime soon – especially the crazya** vid that has some pretty risque stuff in it, with Frank Ocean burning it up (quite literally) in a totally rad pearl-embellished Jenny Holzer shirt and a glitter-coated face.
