Singer Charlotte Lawrence’s Style Approach: Just Be Chill

If you haven’t heard the name Charlotte Lawrence, you’ve probably heard her music. Her 2018 EP “YOUNG” has garnered millions of streams, and her feature on YUNGBLUD’s “Falling Skies” was a standout track on the second season of “13 Reasons Why”.

Charlotte’s latest single, the ethereal “God Must Be Doing Cocaine,” dropped in November, and she’s set to release her debut full-length album in the coming year. However, the model-turned-singer knows that some might recognize her more for her visual presence. At 19, Charlotte is a fixture at fashion weeks and her friendship with Kaia Gerber is well-documented by their eagle-eyed Instagram followers, where Charlotte boasts 731K fans. She hopes her upcoming album will help her move beyond the “social media star” label.

We caught up with Charlotte at Aspen’s historic Hotel Jerome. In between ski runs and dog sledding, the rising alt-rock powerhouse tried on looks from Chanel’s Ephemeral pop-up boutique, open through January 21. A native of Los Angeles, Charlotte’s fondness for Chanel stems from her mother, veteran TV actress Christa Miller (her father is Bill Lawrence, writer, producer, and creator of “Scrubs”).

“When I was younger, my mom had this Chanel pearl necklace,” Charlotte recalls. “She told me that my birthstone was a pearl, and I was like, ‘A pearl is me! All I want to do is wear pearls.’” She often borrowed the necklace until one fateful day: “I wore it under my elementary school uniform. We had to run a mile in P.E. and it broke. There were pearls everywhere. It was so bad.”
Running in pearls is emblematic of the carefree, bold energy that Charlotte brings to fashion.

“My style varies. On a normal day, you’ll see me in sweat shorts or sweatpants that I’ve cut above the knee to make into shorts. They’re hideous but so comfortable. I love boots and rings. I’m a big, chunky ring girl. I have these ripped RE/DONE jeans – they’re my favorite. And I’m obsessed with vintage rock T-shirts. The rarer they are, the more I love them.”

Where do you usually shop for your vintage tees?
“I’ve got a guy named Rick who’s amazing. The last time I saw him in New York, he came to my apartment with three huge duffle bags of T-shirts in sizes for me, my mom, and my guy friend. It’s dangerous. We were all grabbing the best ones.”

So you were competing with your mom?
“One hundred percent. We got in a huge fight over a Who shirt that I grabbed first. I saw her trying it on and was like, ‘What are you doing?! Don’t do that!’”

How do you approach your performance looks?
“It depends on the night. I’m all about interesting bottoms—cool pants, weird skirts. I idolize Mick Jagger’s stage style. I went to a Stones concert and he had like eight wardrobe changes. He went from leather pants and shirtless to a full black, glittery jumpsuit. He was legendary.”

Whose style are you currently loving?
“Jonah Hill. Best street style of all time. My favorite Instagram account is called Jonah Fits. Why do you think I dyed my hair pink? He was out in New York with neon pink hair, a tie-dye shirt, and sweat shorts. I thought, ‘That’s my style. That’s what I’m going to wear now.’ And I did.”

Your hair used to be pink—what inspired the blue?

“I was bored. My whole thing is that you’re only young once. I’m not going to be carrying my kid around with blue hair. Also, once you have it bleached, it’s easy to change color. So right when the pink faded, I went blue. I don’t know what I’ll do next.”

What’s the most questionable item in your wardrobe?

“I could make a list. I played varsity basketball throughout high school and still have every single one of my uniforms. Then I went to Coachella three years ago and bought this all-rhinestoned top that just covers your nipples. It’s basically a chain and probably cost $15 on Amazon. I didn’t actually wear it. And then there’s my ramen merch. I love Top Ramen. My parents and little brothers are really healthy, but my section of the pantry is all SpongeBob mac and cheese and ten cases of Top Ramen.”

You and Kaia Gerber are close friends—do you share clothes?

“She has the sickest style ever. I’ll steal her clothes in a second. She also steals my clothes all the time. We’re very similar. I’m just way lazier than she is.”

Charlotte Lawrence’s style is as eclectic and refreshing as her music. With her fearless approach to fashion, she’s not just dressing for today but for every bold, beautiful moment in between.
