Billie Eilish can do more than just top the charts. During her short time in the spotlight, it’s become clear that the singer is determined to make her mark on the industry — on her own terms. Outspoken and rocking a style that’s all her own, we’re so here for the style choices the star is making. So get ready to cheer for the bad guy, as we take you through the style evolution of Billie Eilish.

Too cool to care
With only one debut single under her belt at the time, Billie showed up to the 2016 Teen Vogue Young Hollywood party in relative anonymity — but her outfit definitely turned heads. In an oversized t-shirt, camouflage cap, dirty sneakers and scuffed knees, the rising teen star definitely stood out amongst her glitzy peers.

Billie has us seeing (too much) green
Fresh off the release of her debut album, a bona fide commercial success, you'd have thought Billie would have been all smiles at Glamour’s 2017 Women of the Year Awards, but — true to her brand — the star kept her mood gloomy and her style grunge-chic, as she stepped out in an oversized green ensemble and matching fur-trim Gucci loafers.

Looking chic(ish) in Chanel
Billie attended an event for Chanel in 2017 and — while she still stuck to her monochromatic signature — she served a look that we couldn’t help but love.

Wearing orange and green
Looking like a neon highlighter come to life, Billie looked sullen as she donned (or rather, drowned in) an oversized jacket and pants to a benefit event at the Brooklyn Museum in 2018.

Shocking no one in another oversized getup
True to form, the "bad guy" singer showed up to the ASCAP Pop Music Awards in 2018 rocking yet another bright and oversized outfit. We’re digging the monochromatic vibes, but it’d be nice to see the singer branch out beyond pieces that overwhelm her frame.

Keeping it neutral
So OK, it was much of the same for Billie at the Billboard Music Awards in 2019 — oversized and monochrome. But the neon roots and oversized aviator frames were definitely new…

Leaving us with so many questions
We're not sure where to start with this outfit from 2019. From the fit to the print, to the unnecessary turtleneck detail — it’s a lot. Why, Billie, why?

Trying a trench
So it’s not a huge style stretch, but it’s something. Billie kept it monochromatic for the 2020 Brit Awards (shocking no one), but she did incorporate a trench coat as part of her look — and dare we say, wore it in her size!

One thing’s for certain, no one rocks a bucket hat like Billie — and the matching mask was a nice touch. The look, worn at the Grammy’s, is both funky — and frightening, and we’re just not sure which way we’re leaning here…

Billie undergoes a full style transformation
A new album and a completely new look — yup, 2021 is the year Billie serves up the style transformation we’ve been waiting for. With a new ‘do and a style that showcases those killer curves, it’s more than the “look” that we’re excited about — it’s the confidence! She seems to be shedding those bulky layers and boldly stepping into a new, more mature, fashion phase. And clearly, we’re so here for it.
