Rock band Panic! At The Disco recently came out with a brand-new song, “Hallelujah“. While the rest of the album has not yet been released, they have already put out a music video for the single, and it is so. Freakin’. Cool.
Check out the music video here!
Scroll down to view three looks inspired by the twisting maze of “Hallelujah”:
1. Stand Up Sing Hallelujah
Throughout the video, we see shots of Brendan singing the chorus to us in a beautiful wine-hued suit. It definitely makes a statement!
While you could go all-out with the burgundy like Brendan did, limiting a pop of color to a single piece can be more appropriate for class or work. Pair a red blazer with a basic black skater skirt and rough ‘n’ tough booties.
For the top, I chose one that’s sheer and cropped for a night out, but you could also go for something a bit longer and opaque for daytime wear. Finish off the look with a smattering of (surprisingly neutral) crystal encrusted jewels.
2. Just Finished a Daydream
At the beginning of the video, this gorgeous princess runs away from Brendan– forcing him to go through obstacles and shifting puzzle architecture to finally get to her.
This look is perfect for transitioning from summer to autumn back on campus (No! Summer! Don’t leave us!). Combine a gray mock-neck midi dress with blush wedges and you’ve got a killer outfit foundation.
To channel the princess, put on some pewter-tinted jewels, amp up your brows with a swipe of gel, and show that you mean business with a deep red lip tar.
3. You’ll Never Know If You Don’t Ever Try Again
This final look is based on Brendan’s non-singing character in the video, who is trying to get to the elusive princess.
Make this outfit work for summer with a lightweight bomber jacket instead of a leather one (Leather? In 80 degree heat and humidity? Recipe for disaster). Layer a classic white-and-navy ringer tee underneath with a pair of cutoffs for a tried-and-true neutral look.
Be sure to keep some of Brendan’s character’s punky edge with heeled suede booties and a crystal ear cuff. Carry any essentials for saving princesses in a study and chic black bag.
