Styled by Songs: “Summertime Sadness” by Lana Del Rey

I got my red dress on tonight
Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight
Got my hair up real big beauty queen style
High heels off, I’m feeling alive


This red dress has a muscle-tee inspired top, which reminds me of being outside on summer nights.

I’m feelin’ electric tonight.
Cruising down the coast goin’ ’bout 99
Got my bad baby by my heavenly side
Oh if I go, I’ll die happy tonight


Lana Del Rey and the mentioning of the world “electric” brings raves to mind, so this outfit features an eclectic crop top, some shiny Doc Martens, and fringed green shorts to play up the summery, rave-y vibe.

I’ve got that summertime, summertime sadness
Summertime, summertime sadness
Got that summertime, summertime sadness
Oh, oh


The dark tones of this outfit and the oversized fit of the sweater mimic the sad, melancholic tone of the song’s chorus.
