The nostalgia game is on, and the resurgence of the ‘rocker-chic’ trend is the next-level game! Rocker chic has been around for more than five decades, and it spans an even broader swath of styles from the floors of the Fillmore to the bars at the Bowery Ballroom. The great news to tell you is that ‘The rocker-chic trend is back with a bang this year.’
Looking to recreate the sexy rocker chic image we have seen all over the Fall runways? Sure rocker chicks are hot, they are sexy and they are just plain bad to the bone. But the most important thing for every fashionista is that this fall, combining key rocker chic pieces is just crucial to look stylish this season. Remember, confidence and attitude are your best friends in pulling this off. Here are a few tips on how to pull off a rocker chic look.
Many rocker chic looks were seen at Isabel Marant, Gucci, Saint Laurent. We love the edgy side of Fall fashion with elements of 90s grunge and 70s punk mixed with 80s revival denim. The signature rock ‘n’ roll heroine image requires sleek leather and distressed stone washed denim, complimented by edgy jewellery and rocker-chic combat boots. Look for styles with metal studs, chains and zippers. Not sold on the leather-denim combo? No problem, you can wear each of them separately with plaids and dark florals.
Body-con is a wardrobe staple for any aspiring rocker chick—and jeans or leather stovepipes, whether distressed or pristine, always strike the right chord. You can also mix your other wardrobe basics like T-shirts and jeans with luxury touches of some bold, structured handbags or luxe suede boots.
Whether faux or the genuine article, leather has been one of hottest fall trends. Because it never looks too boring or really over-the-top, a leather dress will just fall in place as you will be having great fun on the next special event.
On the other hand, every true rocker chick needs a leather jacket. Leather jacket instantly adds a bold element to your outfit, be it casual or professional. Look for a high-quality motorcycle jacket and pair it with a simple LBD or denim pants. See? This is how your regular look just got edgy.
In 2014 every fashionista needs a pair of genuine (or faux) leather pants to show it off in a sexy way. There are leather pants for everyone so look for the ones that lend a rock-n-roll edge to your outfit. For instance, skinny moto pants styled in soft and supple leather with ankle zips.
If you happen to be in the mood to showcase your punk rock attitude, feel free to add impact and edge to your outfit with spike studs. The bold, in-your-face jewellery pieces including spiked necklaces, statement spike-detailed cuffs and rocker-chic studs, work equally fine while injected to an innocent preppy look or as a complement to the grounge-inspired tough-girl look.
The other way to add a rocker chic attitude to your looks is a chunky chain necklace. This statement jewellery of all fashionitas has been seen on many celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Rihanna.
While creating a rock chic look, go for a smouldering smoky eye look. The look should be dramatic and sophisticated so opt for brown tones and hues ranging from dark black to deep emerald.
Also, remember to keep your nails short but not shorter than just above the tip of your finger. A short, rounded or squared nail is simple, classic, and requires less upkeep. Rock chicks do not worry about their nails! All they need to do is to pick a dark, matte colour, preferably black.
From many different types to choose from, a tough-chic motorcycle boot will complement this season’s leather trend for a timeless rocker chic glam. Fashionably fierce and totally unfussy, cool studded boots with a combat attitude are another great choice to recreate the look.
Alternatively, step into comfort with this season’s buckle boots (totally rocker). Loaded with an edgy attitude they are a contemporary version of so called biker boots. Buckle ankle boots make the best match with contrasting garments like leggings and jeans.
This style incorporates feminine and boyish details, creating a very special and edgy look. If you are looking for a new look and this trend matches your taste, step up and create a brand-new rock chic look. All you need is your own twist to stand out from the partying masses-and there you go!
