The relationship between fashion in music is undeniable and songstress Sevyn Streeter says she’s intentional about matching her creative energy with her personal style.

Speaking during a fireside chat presented by Coca-Cola with ESSENCE Senior Beauty & Style Editor Blake Newby during the 2021 ESSENCE Fashion House, the Grammy-winning entertainer elaborated on the important role fashion plays in her recording and songwriting process. “I have a studio in my house and, I like to record according to how I feel and what I wear that day,” she said. “So, if I feel like I wanna write a lil sexy song, I’mma throw on a sexy lil black dress, my split is gonna be up to here [motions], my red lip will be on, I might have me a glass of wine and…it’ll be a whole vibe.”
