The Apple Music festival is well underway. with a plethora of pop heavyweights from Elton John to Britney taking to the stage at Camden's Roundhouse before being broadcast to the world
We've picked four of our favourite male artists gracing the stage this month, who are giving us serious style envy. Calvin Harris, Chance the Rapper and The 1975's Adam Hann certainly know how to play with their personal style, while Bastille frontman Dan Smith is quickly proving himself to be the master of a classic.
You don't need the dough that comes with millions of record sales to look like a Prince of Pop though, far from it. As part of our 'Get the Look for Less' series, we’re showing you how to recreated A-list styles on a high street budget with Quidco.com

Here are some tips for emulating A-list fashion trends:
- Be brave with your style: You can go for a statement denim jacket, pair of dungarees or a head to toe colour block outfit, but keep the other elements to your wardrobe simple and classic. It will make your hero piece stand out more, and not edge to the over the top.
- Accessorising is important: Think about your extras, whether it is a cap, a pair of sunglasses right down to your footwear. The devil is in the detail.

Here's how to emulate the best of the Apple Music Festival Boys:
As the finely chiselled face of Armani underwear, Calvin Harris has ensure that briefs are having a well-deserved revival. To get that designer pop, go for a flashy graphic on the waistband with bold colour and contrasting detail: You can emulate our muse's choice with these Armani briefs (1)
, or go even bolder with like this rather fetching pair of fuschia Guess briefs (2)
. You can also apply the same principle to your swimwear with a classic pair of Speedos (3)
. Feeling less brave? Play is safe yet sexy with a pair of white y-fronts from David Gandy For Autograph (4)
- they're classic, simple, and high-waisted to complement any body shape.
Chance the Rapper
Chance the Rapper is partial to one of the biggest trends to emerge over the last year: the dungaree. They're a bold option that are versatile when you layer. A classic denim pair like this offering by Topman (1)
are a great place to start. Chance has wisely paired his dungarees with an autumnal shade of red, like this long sleeve tee burgundy Uniqlo number (2)
, and you should keep your footwear and accessories relatively simple to let your statement piece stand out: We're lusting after this Boohoo MAN faux suede cap (3)
and retro Reeboks (4)
. For an alternative look, try this pair of Topman overalls (5)
in bang-on-trend olive.
The 1975's Adam Hann
The 1975's guitarist Adam Hann is pretty in pink with his on-stage look. We can't get you the personalised guitar, but you can get Adam's perfect pastel look. A simple vest from Asos (1)
is the perfect base to start layering with a rock 'n' roll denim jacket - bonus points for statment patches, like this one from Topman (2)
. A blush-pink trainer like this pair of Adidas Gazelle's from Office (3)
is a great twist on a classic that looks great with denim, ensuring you can pull of the risky but high reward double-denim look by match your jacket up with a classic Levi's 501 jean (4)
. When it comes to accesories, tortoise shell glasses from Ralph Lauren (5)
add a summery retro finish. And for those who aren't quite willing to get the guns out in a vest, you can achieve the same effect by building on this pink Boohoo Man short sleeve t shirt (6)
Dan from Bastille
Bastille's frontman has a few staple pieces he loves to stick to - but he does them perfectly each time. Dan's go-to is a denim shearling collared jacket, which you can get for a steal from New Look (1)
. Dan likes to be a bit more daring than just a plain white tee, so try something that's been popular on the catwalk this season, such as an exaggerated slogan or colour detail, such as this ombre effect Burton tee (2)
or long-line style tee from Topman (4)
. The same rules applies for your leg wear, so don't be afraid to mix and match in these River Island patchwork denim jeans (6)
. Round off with something simply like a fresh pair of monochrome Nike's (5)
and you'll be ready to rock anywhere.
