Best Coast covered Fleetwood Mac's "Storms" on Fallon.

Last night, almost the entire Style team watched as Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino covered Fleetwood Mac's "Storms" at New York City's Terminal 5. She was wearing an understated all black outfit--a black tank and jeans and a pair of black clog sandals--and commanded in a way that we're sure would have made her predecessor Stevie Nicks very proud had she been there to witness it. Just hours before, Bethany and the rest of her band performed the same song on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, their second time on the show (the first was performing "Boyfriend" off of their debut record, Crazy For You). For the performance, Bethany looked equal parts bewitching and contemporary, dripping in Pamela Love's architectural, amulet-like pyramid rings, a bracelet and an breastplate necklace that almost doubles as a collar for her midi-length Rachel Comey Dress. The dress, which is a fluid black halter with buttons from the waist down (very Elaine Benes from Seinfeld, only sexier and more modern, we must say), isn't quite as flamboyant as a classic Stevie Nicks look, but we love how Bethany stays true to her own unique take on the California Valley witch vibe that Stevie is the godmother of. Finished off with a pair of Marc Jacobs split wedges and flowing tresses, Bethany's super simple, timeless look was nearly as breathtaking as her tender cover of the heartbreaking Fleetwood Mac ballad she sang.

Is there anything better than a summer romance? Weekend beach trips, laying in the sand giggling over popsicles, holding hands in the waves, riding bikes around the city at night...oh wait, what was I saying? But seriously, summer love is awesome, and judging from the amount of picnic blanket canoodling we saw in the park this weekend, the season is ON. Of course who better to represent warm weather happiness than our favorite California power couple, Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino and Wavves' Nathan Williams? The two lovebirds are gracing the cover of Spin's July/August "Go Outside" Issue, and not only are they totally adorable, but they have killer style to match. The spread, which captures the real-life couple hiking one of their hometown of Los Angeles' many canyons, was photographed by Dan Martensen. When we say hiking, though, we don't really mean hiking. No short shorts and clunky boots for these two- Beth and Nate take to the hills in far more fabulous and flirty garb, and not only can you drool over it, but we have some pieces that you can actually buy to have it for yourself. An outfit to wear on your next outdoorsy date, sure to make the mercury rise even higher? Yes, please.

Shopping Bethany Cosentino's new Urban Outfitters collection, is preeeeeetty close to raiding the Best Coast frontwoman's undeniably amazing closet (okay, maybe that's a stretch, but still...). However, if you're dying to get your hands on that awesome Joni Mitchell varsity jacket she sports on the cover of this month's Paste Magazine, well, it's going to be a little harder than driving to your local UO. Decked out in her trademark retro "Clueless meets Stevie Nicks" style, the California musician combines old and new on the front of the mag wearing a cat printed skirt with a hand-me-down oversized coat. Think the jacket looks familiar? Maybe you've spotted it in this adorable promo vid for Bethany's new collection, where she flaunts the piece and admits it's one of her favorite staples in her closet. The item was a birthday gift from her mother two years ago, and Bethany admits she "since then she's been really obsessed with varsity jackets."

Best Coast singer Bethany Cosentino’s new capsule line for Urban Outfitters doesn’t officially drop until next Tuesday (which, conveniently, is also the release date of Best Coast’s sophomore album The Only Place) but now early bird fashion fans can get a jump start on the masses. The retail giant has added two key pieces from the Urban Renewal offshoot- the collared Liv Crop Top and the high-waisted Tour Shorts- a full week before the other 10 items from the collab hit stores. And not that you really need an excuse to channel your inner rockstar, but just in case: Bethany recently told us herself that the Tour Shorts were her favorite piece from the entire collection.

Ever since we heard the news of Best Coast's frontwoman Bethany Cosentino creating a capsule collection for Urban Outfitters, we've been DYING to know more. Since it's for UO's Urban Renewal line, there's definitely going to be a slight vintage vibe to all her custom designed pieces, but... what inspired her collection? How did this whole thing go down? Why did Urban Outfitters choose Bethany as their go-to design gal? Noisey caught up with the singer when she was in NYC and got ALL the answers to our burning questions. Check out some snippets from the interview below!

Remember that time we told you how much we wished we were basking in the BBQ pit-lit glow of taco-infused musical mecca fantasticness better known as the SXSW music festival? Yeah, we're still dreaming about hitching a ride on a magic carpet to capture those last moments left of the fest this weekend. Alas, we have more SXSW style shenanigans to make us feel like we're actually there, including some sparkle motion courtesy of Gossip's Beth Ditto, modern minimalism from electro high priestess Zola Jesus, and the cutest in sailor romper wear from Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino. Did we mention there's a shirtless appearance by Lil Wayne?

Did you hear that? It was the collective cacophonous girlie scream of the MTV Style staff taking in the news that Best Coast singer Bethany Cosentino is launching a line with Urban Outfitters. (We were about to type multiple *SQEEEEEE*s right then, buuuut we'll spare you.) It's no secret how much we love Best Coast. But this news about a line designed by Cosentino—announced via Best Coast's Twitter feed—as well as an actual PHOTO has us positively verklempt at the thought of an entire line of indie rock inflected onesie wonderment.

Best Coast's new video for "Boyfriend" just premiered today on MTV2, and we were so excited to see what lead singer Bethany Cosentino would wear in the new vid. After all, she's known for her urban-hipster-mixed-with-cool-Los-Angeles style, and this video showed off her look perfectly. Turns out, she only wore one outfit, but it's a good one — a floral romper, tiered gold fringe necklace, and large oval stone ring. As for the video, it takes place at a sweet 15 party where the Best Coast band is playing, and Bethany looks super chill in her floral playsuit singing about a girl who wants a certain guy to be her boyfriend. Want to steal her "Boyfriend" video look? Find out how below!

ROMPER: We found her exact romper! It's from Urban Outfitters, and it's still available online ($68, The spaghetti-strap floral playsuit has a skirted bottom, and we love the fall-friendly colors of brown, turquoise, and lime green.

ACCESSORIES: Bethany Cosentino wore a three-tiered gold fringe necklace, and Hive And Honey makes one that is very similar ($32, She also wore a large stone ring, and this one by Free People ($18, does the trick.
