Zoe Kravitz may have the raddest mom on the planet (Lisa Bonet), but her Brooklyn band has a style all their own.

Although she has modeled for Vera Wang, and Alexander Wang is a close pal, ask Zoe Kravitz, 25, about style and her eyes roll.

"I keep it real. I don't pay attention to labels," she says. And it's a sentiment that holds true for her band Lolawolf, which includes keyboardist James Levy and electronics-percussionist Jimmy Giannopoulos, both 34. The group rejected major-label offers and released its full-length debut, Calm Down, with indie label Innit Recordings via Kobalt Label Services, at the end of October. "Nobody can f— with our aesthetic," Kravitz says of the band's DIY approach before dishing on its look.

"I wore these Reformation pants on our album cover, which we shot on an iPhone. The army jacket is from a thrift store in Berlin, and I have on a cut-up wife beater. Kurt Cobain and early Gwen Stefani — when she wore cropped shirts — are a few of my icons."

JAMES LEVY

"I love the look of vests, and this Zara jacket sort of has that effect. My shoes are Topshop, and the pants are from The Gap — they make the best jeans."

JIMMY GIANNOPOULOS

"Everything I'm wearing is a thrift find, except the chain from my mom and a Huf hat that I added a Cross Colours patch to. Whenever we get to a new city, we find vintage stores and shop together."
