Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

Four days, 1300 bands, and countless shows later, CMJ 2012 is officially over. But although the New York City music marathon may have ended on Saturday, that awesome post-concert high definitely hasn't stopped quite yet. You know what we're talking about- our ears are still ringing, we've got new songs stuck in our heads, and let's just say our iTunes library is very, VERY happy. And here's one more thing that made this year's CMJ extra special- all the music was topped off with a jolt of killer, cant-wait-to-copy style. Whether it's camo, schoolgirl skirts, or a twisted new take on rock n'roll black, we've called out favorite fashionable acts to watch. See who made the cut below!

OK, so we're already in love with Kilo Kish's futuristic-sounding mashup of hip-hop, smoothly poetic vocals, and funky melodies on singles like "Navy" and "Watergun." But now that we've finally witnessed the Brooklyn musician (and Odd Future tourmate) working her magic live, consider us obsessed. She's got a style as unique as her sound, sporting hot pink lipstick on the regular and pairing an eclectic uniform of leather jackets and printed blouses with THE ultimate accessory- gorgeous wild hair. Her amazing style isn't a coincidence, either- she studied textile design at New York's Fashion Institute of Technology (!). Kilo put her fashion background to good use this weekend at the Fader Fort with an unexpected combo of pleats, oxfords, knee socks and a motorcycle topper. In other words, total proof that polished AND edgy don't necessarily have to be mutually exclusive.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
