Carly Rae Jepsen's band tells her to "take a nap" if she turns up in questionable clothing.

The singer is known for her fun and flirty style and doesn't shy away from playing around with her clothes. While she's always keen to make an impression, she has some honest people on hand to tell her if she's committed a fashion faux pas.

"My band are the first to notice if I start to dress a little funky, like the day they found me dressed head to toe in florals," she laughed to British magazine Very. "One of them put their arm around me and said, 'I think you need to go home and take a nap. You're in head-to-toe florals right now.'"

The 29-year-old also gave an insight into her style inspiration, citing Carey Mulligan as her icon because she's so "classy and beautiful".

While Carly's red-carpet looks no doubt influence her fans, her passion for fashion is something that was only ignited when she became famous.

"I grew up in Mission, British Columbia, so there weren't really any designer shops," she explained. "I think I got a taste for it as I started to travel and see the world. I became more interested in fashion and had my eye on what I liked. Plus, I was getting to travel to Paris, to Italy and see fashion shows. That opened my eyes to all of the possibilities."

But while she's into trends now, Carly won't be found online shopping anytime soon, joking that if she started clicking, she wouldn't be able to stop.
