That whole rock and roll inspired look has always been my thing. Even when I am wearing something totally un-rock-related I am still adding a bit of rock and roll flare to my look. Whether it’s a smokey eye, a red lip, a leather motorcycle jacket, or a pair of combatboots — something in my ensemble will say rocker chic. As it turns out that my rocker style is coming in handy because Rock & Republic is having a hugely awesome contest for all of you fashion lovers out there. However, in order for you to have a shot at winning I have to show you how I create my rock and roll inspired look. See how selfless I am?
You are probably wondering what you are winning. You have a chance at winning the ultimate New York Fashion Week experience with Rock & Republic to celebrate their new collection at Kohl’s. One lucky winner and a guest will win a full R&R makeover (hair, makeup, and clothes), round trip airfare to NYC, 3 night’s hotel accommodations at the W, ground transportation, two tickets to R&R’s fashion show, and $300 spending money. Not a bad way to spend 3 days is it?
Enter here. You only have until January 28th 9pm PST!!
Now onto my look ….
My rock and roll look involves my latest purchase, a black goat fur vest. Can you get anymore more rock and roll than that? Of course if goat freaks you out, totally go for faux fur. Any obnoxiously loud jacket will do, actually. The fun jacket is key because achieving the ultimate rocker look to me is all about being over-the-top, carefree, and fun. To bring the look back down to earth, therefore making it totally wearable, add a pair of skinny jeans. I went with a denim “jegging”- no shame in a jegging. A jegging is comfortable, stylish, totally rock and roll, and it shows off a great shoe. Its also great because the bulk of the jacket needs something skinny on the bottom. Now, clearly you can’t go topless under the fur jacket. Well … I suppose that would be very rock and roll BUT that wouldn’t be a good look. I recommend a tee shirt. You can go with a simple graphic tee or go wild with neon!! A true rock and roll girl is confident enough to wear neon out in public.
So we have the base of our outfit down but that is just the beginning. What are we missing?? Accessories, shoes, and makeup of, course. I just went for it, minimalism is for the birds. I added a great pair of statement earrings, leather fingerless gloves, and a few bracelets for good luck. For the makeup, I sported a bold red lip to play off of the neon yellow tee. And we can’t forget the shoes!!! I wore my beautiful hidden wedge boots. The wedge boots are great because they are tough, they add some height, and are comfortable enough to get around in.
Simple right? If not, I broke my outfit down like a fashionable puzzle (see the non-puzzle like picture above). Just plug in your own garments and accessories and you are good to go!
There you have it folks!! A rock and roll look from me to you. Now, go and enter that contest already!!! Good luck.
