Tonight at Terminal 5, Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast will serenade NYC with her crooning, surf-rock vocals while, we bet, rocking a few inspired ensembles. The frontwoman is known for her flirty sundresses, floppy hats and thigh-high stockings (all of which seem to look better with an electric guitar). Here, she pairs a polka-dot romper with a white Panama hat.

This spring, Cosentino lent her vintage-inspired sense of chic to a capsule collection of silky dresses and blousey separates for Urban Outfitters.

At this year's SXSW, Cosentino rocked an on-trend braided 'do with a cheeky red sailor suit (complete with exaggerated collar and bright white piping).
For the U.K.'s "End of the Road Festival" last year, Cosentino went for a sassy pair of white eyelet shorts which she styled with her signature thigh-high stockings, a men's buttondown shirt and felt burgundy cap.
Last September, the fashion world sat up and took notice of Cosentino's quirky sense of style. Helmut Lang, at their spring 2012 presentation, dressed the singer in one of their silky grey wrap dresses for a front-row appearance.

While she isn't beyond high-fashion ensembles, Cosentino always seems most at home in a cool, vintage-inspired dress and a pair of lace-up booties. At the "Ray-Ban Raw" project, the singer layered a floral grey dress with opaque black tights and brown leather boots.

Likewise, we loved the romantic white lace look that Cosentino sported to a performance at the Wiltern in May.
In an appropriately edgy look for the relaunch of "The Nasty Gal" in Hollywood, Cosentino tried a sexy black shift dress with keyhole cut-outs at the neck with tall stockings, black booties and (awesomely) gingham-patterned nail art.
As any rocker worth her Stratocaster would tell you, nothing trumps a white T-shirt and jeans when you're on stage. Here, Cosentino taps into her inner Patti Smith in a simple crewneck shirt and high-waisted skinny jeans for the Razzmatazz festival in Barcelona.

Cosentino paired flouncy red shorts with a black T-shirt and oversized floppy hat for a playfully chic look at SPIN@Stubb's in March.

Clearly getting into the swing of summer, Cosentino went for floral-print shorts, a sleeveless buttondown and white sunglasses for the Orion Music + More Festival in New Jersey.
