New season, new wardrobe! But with so many different trends to wade through, it can be a bit daunting to discover what’s right for you. No worries! I’m here to help, bringing you a mini-series on dressing for your style. This week I’ve curated my top Spring Summer 2016 looks for… The Rock-Chic
How to tell if you’re a Rock-Chic:
- Your leather jacket is a staple in your wardrobe
- In fact, anything leather is a great addition… tops, leggings, boots…
- But you’d never wear them all together – you like to mix in some glamour
- You like studs, chains and zips as embellishment
- You lighten your edge with softer colours and fabrics
The soft rock aesthetic for Spring will please the The Rock-Chic. Tough leather separates are complemented with delicate accents in lace and ruffles or transformed with soft colours such as Louis Vuitton’s pinks. This juxtaposition satisfies your desire for glamour with a bit of an edge.
Metallics are appearing more and more with every passing season. Could they be turning into a staple look? Wear them in the day for an unexpected glow or wear them “traditionally,” in the evening. There’s a metallic for everyone, be it a subtle sheen like Saint Laurent’s shimmery black jacket or an eye-catching, reflective, statement piece like Loewe. This trend fits perfectly into The Rock-Chic’s wardrobe.
Footwear and accessories are adorned in studs, spikes and chains, just how you like it. The Rock-Chic look calls for bold cuffs, stud earrings and heavy detailing.
