Style Icon: Shirley Manson

If you don't know who Shirley Manson is, she's the singer of the band Garbage.. and if you don't know who Garbage are, I definitely recommend you have a look at their youtube or get on Spotify and listen to their albums, they're one of my favourite bands!

Shirley's style is one that I have always admired. When Garbage first hit the scene in the 90s, Shirley could always be spotted in grungy fishnets and Dr Martens with her trademark black eyeliner and red lipstick. Nowadays, in her 40s, her look is more polished but still has elements of that 90s grunge. I would absolutely kill to look like this woman. Thanks to her, I spent the whole of the summer of 2006 in a shirt dress and she also inspired me to start dying my hair red!

No matter what she wears, she always manages to look fantastic. My personal favourite is the black and white striped dress from the 2005 'Bleed Like Me' era but I'm also loving her new look for the 'Not Your Kind of People' tour. I'm finally going to see Garbage this Sunday and I can't wait to see what she wears.

What do you think of Shirley's style?


  1. OMG this takes me back! I am going straight home to listen to my britpop cd's. Ahem showing my age now. I used to love Garbage. Didn't realised they were still touring. Have fun at their gig :)

  2. I've heard of Garbage but never listened to their music, shall youtube em later. She looks amazing, her hair is so cool. I hope you have a great time on Sunday! xxx

  3. So jealous that you are seeing them! they were one of my fave bands growing up. I love her attitude as well as her style. I love her look in the Stupid Girl video, really iconic x

  4. No way is she in her 40's! She looks better than me in my 20s, how depressing!


  5. She's now in her 40s??? God that makes me feel old! I had their first albums :)
