How To Master Rock Chic Style

Rocker chic is a style that spans decades and conjures up some of our all-time favourite style muses: Patti Smith, Grace Jones, Bianca Jagger, and of course, the queen of groupie chic, Kate Moss, so it’s no wonder we’re a tad obsessed with nailing this look.

Perfect for a night out, or for a day look with attitude, we’re counting down our 5 commandments of rock chic dressing, for looks that say “I’m with the band” every time.

#1 It All Starts With Skinnies

Black jeans or leather skinnies are the basis of the rock’n’roll look. Wear with heels for a ready-to-dance after-dark look, or back tucked into black ankle boots for day.

#2 Shine On You Crazy Diamond

Channel glam rock in a high shine sequin jacket. Keep the look effortless by pairing your statement jacket back with distressed denim and a simple tee.

#3 Say It Like You Mean It

A statement tee is the cornerstone of the rock chic uniform. Pair it back with distressed denim for day, and throw over a leather jacket for night.

#4 Take A Walk On The Wild Side

A hint of leopard brings a touch of rock to even a simple look. If you’re not scared to show your feline side, a coated leopard jean is pure rock chic cool.

#5 It’s All In The Details

Studs are a rock’n’roll staple, and whether you keep it simple with a studded belt or go full-glam in studded jeans, you can’t go wrong with a hit of heavy metal.
