n March 13th, hundreds of bands will come from all over the world to Austin, Texas for the 16th annual South by Southwest music festival. Started as "a way for Austin's eclectic music scene to reach out to the rest of the world" according to its website, SxSW now seems like it's more of a way for the rest of the world to reach into Austin...all while kicking back with a beer and filling up on excellent BBQ and great bands, alongside throngs of hipsters showing off their rock 'n' roll style. With acts from Australia, Belgium, Brazil, and even Taiwan (and that's just within our lineup), Austin turns into a global playground for music and style.

In honor of the festival's 16th anniversary, we wanted to make a list of our 16 favorite style stars performing in SxSW but we just liked too many. So, we interviewed 19 ladies that know how to rock out in style.

Laura Burhenn of The Mynabirds

What inspires your music?

"Our new album is inspired by revolutions large and small, struggles on a worldwide scale that make the headlines, and internal struggles (and victories!) that are hidden in people's private lives."

How would you describe your style?

"An eclectic mix of new and old, high and low, earthy and edgy. I'm usually wearing a mix of thrift, vintage, new standards, and some designer pieces I hold near and dear."
