Prompted by a love for Avril Lavigne so strong my ringtone was “Sk8er Boi” for the entirety of middle school, I practically begged my mom to buy me a pair of low-rise black grunge jeans with red thread accents to look just like my favorite Canadian punk-pop star. Many style evolutions later, Halsey — who recently released her grunge-pop album If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power — threw on an almost identical pair of jeans from The Attico while on a date night with Alev Aydin at Bella Hadid’s New York Fashion Week party. “Mom and dad’s night out,” Halsey captioned snaps of their night on Instagram on Sept. 9.
Since the album’s whirlwind debut — accompanied by an IMAX film — the “You Asked For This” singer has continued to embrace her gothic style with pieces like their LaQuan Smith crimson corset embellished with black lace detailing. She paired the look with shimmering Giuseppe Zanotti heeled sandals, a black shoulder bag with a gold chain strap, and matching gold jewelry. Their slick black hair and thick lashes added an air of haunting elegance that would make Morticia Addams proud, and we’re taking all the style notes ahead of fall. Get a peek at Halsey and Alev’s date-night outfits from all angles ahead.
