Lorde went groovy and ethereal in her latest look.

The “Royals” singer performed her latest single “Solar Power” on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” last night. For the ensemble, she sported a mid-calf length dress that featured vibrant yellow and purple diagonal stripes printed on a baby pick fabric. The dress also incorporated cap sleeves for an added flair.

A closer look at Lorde’s orange wedge platform sandals.

When it came down to the shoes, Lorde donned a pair of platform wedge-heel sandals that may look familiar to any 2000s fashion fans. The shoes capitalize off of the chunky, platform aesthetic that has grown in popularity on social media and in streetwear styles alike over the last couple of years.

Lorde’s essential style consists all things currently trendy and considered modern. She typically dabbles in designs that have an avant-garde twist, though typically leaning towards a more demure look. While on red carpets, Lorde fancies outfits that push the envelope and create statement-making moments. From wearing an Off-White gown while performing during her Melodrama World Tour to frolicking at the 2018 Grammys in a vibrant red gown, the 24-year-old artist created fashion-forward moments that cement her eye and reputation for fashion.

The “Green Light” singer has also used her modeling talents to be the face of a MAC Cosmetics ad campaign back in 2014.
