“I love stripes, so I try to wear them as much as possible,” says Emergency Tiara of her Christian Dior coat (17 E 57th St between Madison and Fifth Aves; 212-207-8448, dior.com).

The singer’s penchant for designer brands led her to “steal” these Chanel gloves (locations throughout the city; visit chanel.com) from her mom. “They are a little big on me,” she admits. “But I couldn’t pass them up.”

“They are wider than many high-heel pumps, so they are super comfortable,” she enthuses of her Emilio Pucci heels (855 Madison Ave at 71st St; 212-752-4777, emiliopucci.com). Just as pleasant to wear are these Wolford tights (locations throughout the city; visit wolford.com), which she claims “are so soft, I just want to sleep in them.”

“My music is pop, girly and bubbly, so I always like to throw something in that pops,” says Emergency Tiara on how her profession influences her style. She achieves this by wearing a bright orange Victoria Beckham (victoriabeckham.com) skirt under a muted dress from Stella McCartney (112 Greene St between Prince and Spring Sts; 212-255-1556, stellamccartney.com).

“I got these earrings in Tokyo and I wear them all the time,” says Emergency Tiara. “When I exercise, when I take shower and when I sleep.”

“I’m usually not a big fan of studs, but they don’t look too edgy [on this pair],” Emergency Tiara explains of her Valentino booties (821 Madison Ave between 68th and 69th Sts; 212-772-6969, valentino.com), which she says are so comfortable she bought the same style in black.

“I always love ladylike accessories,” the pop star says. She can’t recall where she got these simple crystal studs, but notes they go well with everything.

A casual white Theory T-shirt (locations throughout the city; visit theory.com) dresses down Emergency Tiara’s gold leather Rag & Bone pants (locations throughout the city; visit rag-bone.com). “I feel like gold works better than silver for my skin tone so when I see something gold, my radar turns on,” she says.

Her affinity for stripes resurfaces with this Camilla and Marc (camillaandmarc.com) jacket in an interesting cut. “This is very much my everyday style,” she says.

This unique vintage Chanel bag was a splurge the singer couldn’t resist. “It was a big purchase,” she reveals. “I love that it has black and brown; it simply goes well with everything.”

Emergency Tiara accessorizes only with this delicate necklace from her friend’s brand Ahkah. “The jewelry is so feminine, delicate and beautiful, it makes you feel like a woman,” she enthuses.

These Giuseppe Zanotti (806 Madison Ave between 67th and 68th Sts; 212-650-0455, giuseppezanottidesign.com) peep-toe stilettos are more for show. “They are not the best shoes to walk around in the city,” she laments.

Her personal style: “Feminine and elegant, ladylike but fun.”

Her inspirations: “Audrey Hepburn, Twiggy and Mad Men.”

Her favorite NYC stores:La Boutique(locations throughout the city; visit laboutiqueresale.com) is a resale store where you can always find amazing treasures in very good condition. Aloha Rag(545 Greenwich St between Charlton and Vandam Sts; 212-925-0882, aloharag.com) because it carries my friend’s jewelry brand, Ahkah (ahkah.jp/en). Pas de Deux (328 E 11th St between First and Second Aves; 212-475-0075, pasdedeuxny.com) has a great selection of clothes, but the interior of the store is also super charming.”

Her signature item: “My Chanel sunglasses with the old-lady glasses chain.”

Her style icon: “Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw. She always looked so charming and original yet sexy.”

How her style has evolved: “As I am getting older, I have been more careful with what I get. [I believe in] quality over quantity.”

How she describes NYC style: “Free. How you dress is who you are. Every style is so beautiful.”

Style motto: “Never slutty—dress like a lady.”

Favorite salon: “For haircuts, I go to Warren-Tricomi(1117 Madison Ave at 84th St; 212-262-8899, warrentricomi.com) to see my Japanese hairstylist Takashi Matono. For styling, I love Double-D-Production and Mila Arsovska (201-758-5874, dd-pro.com).”

Favorite spa: “I go to Yakson House (38 W 32nd St between Broadway and Fifth Ave; 212-564-7474) in Koreatown. The massage is really, really painful but your body feels so light afterward.”

Emergency Tiara’s debut EP, Until the Stroke of Midnight, comes out Tue 12.
