SXSW isn’t just about seeing major headliners and up-and-comers in the music industry -– even though that’s the majority of the reason people go. Within the past couple years, the music festival has also become the place to see famous faces who are sporting the latest fashion trends.
From rock star chic like Hayley Williams of Paramore to a more striking and original fashion sense like that of the one and only Prince, there are style icons walking up and down the streets of Austin this week. Well... more like hitting the stages, since it's probably pretty rare to see Prince just casually strutting around Texas.
Take a look at some of our favorite style icons at SXSW 2013!
1. Justin Timberlake
Chances are Justin won’t be decked out in his "Suit and Tie" at SXSW -– it’s a more laid-back environment. He’ll keep comfy-casual with a hat or his black-rimmed glasses -– or both!
2. Hayley Williams of Paramore
Hayley is known for rocking out in a band tee or tank with colored denim. She'll finish it off with either combat boots or Doc Martens to create the Paramore frontwoman we all know and love.

3. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Should we call this “thrift shop chic”? Macklemore and Ryan both have a unique sense of style that includes normal T-shirts or button-ups with a splash of obnoxiousness. Giant fur giant is kinda Macklemore’s signature piece.
4. Tegan & Sara
Tegan and Sara have the wardrobe you want to steal! Plenty of cool and hip jackets and blazers, stripes and patterns galore with simple black pants and boots.
5. Green Day
Grab your ties, leopard prints, plaid, and all the black you can find -- and bam! You’ve got Green’s Day ultimate rock star style.
To channel Prince’s iconic look, grab your purple suit (or pull a Macklemore and head to your nearest thrift shop), your shades, and make sure to show off plenty of chest hair.
7. Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Karen O’s eccentric style is one that not everyone can pull off. You’ve either got the attitude to carry it off or you don’t. Points if you can rock her black bob.
8. Depeche Mode
Black-on-black-on-black. Does it really get much better than that? Studs are a must on your leather jacket and sunglasses, of course.
