Unleashing Your Inner Rock Chick
From Debbie Harry and Chrissie Hynde to Kate Moss and Karen O, the rock chick look is a striking image of female empowerment that never goes out of fashion. Even pop warblers like Ke$ha and Katy Perry have been seen to embrace the alternative look from time to time. Rock chick styles vary, but the classic look involves a cool, androgynous appearance with jeans and women’s trousers replacing skirts and dresses, and shirts and jackets replacing low-cut women’s tops.
Too many bright colours and ornate patterns should generally be avoided if you’re aiming for rock-chick cool. A plain white women’s top like this Chillytime Lace Edged Short Sleeve T-Shirt is a great starting point around which to build your indie-queen outfit. Pair it with some skinny jeans and a lightweight jacket like this Laura Scott Nautical Blazer for an effortlessly cool ensemble.
The rock chick look is all about making an individual statement, so don’t be afraid of quirky accessories; Think skinny ties, chunky belts and statement t-shirts. Although the boyish look can look great, you don’t necessarily need to hide your body beneath baggy or shapeless layers either – there’s a reason why Debbie Harry is both the queen of rock and one of the great sex symbols of the 20th century. You can add a hint of rock to a more feminine outfit by wearing a jacket over a dress, or a classic statement t-shirt over a skirt.
In terms of footwear, trainers and boots look great and add to the laid-back appeal of the outfit. If you don’t want to renounce your heels, look for some heeled boots. These high-heeled knee boots from Laura Scott will certainly make an impression!
