It’s no surprise that singer, songwriter, & Civil Rights activist Nina Simone was (and forever will be) one bad ass BANDIT. Not only was she wildly talented, but her killer style + signature statement jewelry just make her that much more extraordinary in our book. If you haven’t seen the Netflix Documentary, What Happened, Miss Simone? – GET ON IT! Incredibly fascinating, this biography shows us the good, the bad, and the ugly sides of being a musical genius and revolutionary such as Miss Simone. Seriously, watch it.
Anyways, we’re here to talk about her Bandit Babe style! She always had the best accessories and loved to perform, dripping in statement jewels, giant earrings, cocktail rings and dazzling layered necklaces. Here, we’ve gathered some of the best photos featuring her favorite signature jewels…
(We couldn’t help but think of the Dart Earrings while watching this performance of “Ain’t Got No… I’ve Got Life”.)

Us bandits have a new girl crush, and she comes toting a guitar, a middle finger in the air, and some outlaw country tunes. Nashville-based Nikki Lane isn’t some southern belle; she’s a bandit through and through. With her album, All or Nothin’ produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, she’s changing the country scene from Pop Country, to “Country Country.” Nikki might look innocent but don’t be fooled. With lyrics like “Anyday or night time is always the right time… to do the wrong thing,” she’s the country bad girl we’ve been dreaming of. Not only is her music just the right amount of catchy mixed with bad ass but her style is the epitome of bandit perfection. Rockin’ Isabel Marant’s western collection, Nudie-esque bodysuits, and vintage swimsuits with cowboy boots… we want to wear everything she puts on! She even said… “I wish I had a fringe suit for everyday of the week.” Us too, Nikki, us too.
Father’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time to give it up for all the Bandit Papas out there. Without our dads, how else would we know how to shoot a sling shot or throw a punch or get dirty like the boys? A good papa really sacrifices for his family and deserves the praise for it! Our dads showed us all the best bands like The Beatles and Fleetwood Mac.. Thanks, dads! Here’s a look at some of the most precious Bandit Papas with their little bandit babes…

We are so happy and proud to announce our newest upcoming collection *drum roll please*… we are releasing a very special collab with Nudie’s Rodeo Tailors, “For Nudie by The2Bandits”. We’ve teamed up with the Valley Relics Museum to honor the Rhinestone Cowboy and legend himself, Nudie Cohn. 20% of the jewelry proceeds will be donated to the Valley Relics Museum, which is home to many of Nudie’s vintage creations, to truly honor Mr. Nudie and keep the museum and his vision alive. Nudie suits have been worn by every rock and country god; from Elvis’ gold lame suit, to Gram Parsons’ amazing marijuana leaf covered classic, Nudie made custom tailored suits for John Wayne, Jimmy Page, Dolly Parton, Porter Wagoner, Sonny and Cher, Elton John, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and pretty much anyone who was anyone throughout music history.
This collection has long been a dream of ours, and someone extra special got in on the action as well. Ultimate bandit babe, Erin Wasson art directed, co-produced and modeled for the lookbook for this star-studded collection. Entirely shot in the museum, Erin dawns the actual Nudie suits worn by the stars that made them so memorable. The lookbook was co-styled by Erin and Coryn Madley, and photographed by David Mushegain. For Nudie by The2Bandits launches June 2nd and we can’t wait to share it with y’all and honor the true legend that is Nudie Cohn along with his family and friends that made this dream a reality.
If ever in the LA area, y’all should check out the Valley Relics Museum! For more details check their website x
