Some could say that rockstars have all the luck: fancy cars, champagne on demand and unlimited access to the hottest places in town. And while, yes, unless you’re a millionaire some of those things might be hard to come by. But there’s still one thing that those of rock royalty have that is still within reach: their style. In fact, it’s quite simple and with just a few tips, soon enough, you, too, will be getting the celebrity treatment…
1. FIRST STEP IS EASY: WEAR SOMETHING BLACK AT ALL TIMES.
The cornerstone to every rockstar look is the color black. We can’t quite explain it, but even from the early days of rock through the quaking electric guitar bands of the seventies and into the grunge years, it’s been a wardrobe staple, regardless of the hour of day. Now, that’s not to say, you can’t modernize it. Just think tops or accessories with hints of merlot or other deep jewel tones.
2. YOU FOUND SOMETHING – CHEERS TO THAT! NOW, LAYER WITH DIFFERENT TEXTURES.
A little bit of this, a bit of that, being a rockstar is all about experimentation and wearing what you feel in that moment. Maybe you woke up listening to the Rolling Stones on the radio or you can’t seem to get Joan Jett’s I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll out of your head….whatever your mood, mix it up.
3. NEXT ON THE LIST: CONSIDER CUT-OUTS AND STUDS YOUR NEWEST BFFS.
To the point: Your style has gotta have some edge. And certain adornments like cut-outs, studs or even fringe can definitely achieve that. Once you’ve found the ideal outfit, then practice your walk; because, after all, every rockstar should know how to make an entrance.
4. FIND A PAIR OF SKINNY PANTS. BE PREPARED TO LIVE IN THEM.
Open a rockstar’s closet and we’d bet our bass guitar, you’d find skinny pants. Guys, girls… doesn’t matter. Skinny pants go everywhere and with everything. Plus, they’re easy to kneel down in when hitting those microphone-clinging high notes and perhaps a sidekick or two when your drummer pounds those cymbals just right. But for right now, we’d settle for just a great night out look.
