Sister Sister // Lounge Style Icon – the Haim sisters

July 28, 2015

With legs and hair for days, the Haim sisters have an easy going rock n roll style that is polished, gritty, and heavy with seventies influence. As sisters, we love seeing the similarities and differences in sister style with other sister sets.


The 3 sisters together plus drummer Dash Hutton make up Haim the band (Haim is their last name – Hebrew for “life”, pronounced HIGH-im). Este the oldest sister is on bass, Danielle on guitar and lead vocals, and Alana the youngest on guitar and keys.The sisters grew up outside of Los Angeles in the San Fernando Valley, playing music together in their garage and then as a sixties cover band. They formed Haim in 2007 and in 2013 they released their first full length, the excellent Days are Gone. After a nonstop 2 years of touring, the sisters have taken some much deserved time off and are now back in the studio working on their much anticipated second album. We can’t imagine how much fun it must be to share such a special musical bond and get to tour the world with your sisters! Big fans of their music (as is Stevie!) – we are also equally in awe of their effortless style.

The common style denominators with all three girls are straight long hair parted down the middle, leather jackets, denim, tiny dresses or skirts, and demin shorts. Whether in their stylistically awesome music videos, rocking on stage live, major editorial photoshoots, or at glamourous event they tend to always keep a few of these elements. Black, white, and denim blue are their neutrals, with an occasional pop of deep primary colors. Dresses are mod, skirts are leather, and black is best. Take a cue from the sisters and never second guess if a motorcycle jacket will go with that dress. Wear a polished blazer with your cutoffs when the summer days cool down at night. Check out some of our fave looks and get inspired!
