Growing up doesn’t mean you have to start dressing like your more elderly relations, there’s plenty of room in your wardrobe for fun, exciting and interesting outfits no matter what age you are. There are few styles as great for letting your hair down and getting ready to party as the classic rock chick, and you’ll be glad to know that you dont necessarily have to leave it behind as you get older. All you need to do is make some minor adjustments to the basics and you’ll have a rock chick look that will allow you to party all night whatever age you are.
The rock chick look can be very flattering to women of all ages as long as you’re willing to say good-bye to some of the more risqu favourites. With a few simple swaps, you’re already halfway there. Ditch the teeny tiny mini skirts in favour of tight black pencil skirts and swap bright pink leopard print leggings for a pair of muted metallic tights. The rock chick look is all about attitude, so look for ways you can tone down the style without losing any of the intent.
Slim or skinny fit jeans are perfect especially when teamed with a classic, fitted white shirt or a vest top. Good boots are another essential and even if you think your days of thigh highs are past, a small heel and some kick ass pointy toes are just the thing to give your outfit an edge. The key to updating the rock look is to mix grunge with grown up glamour. Think faded band t-shirt combined with a gorgeous gold pendant or a rough and tough jeans and jacket combo softened by a pink slip and a slash of red lipstick.
Leather trousers and skirts are another characteristic rock look that just keeps coming back and if you have the figure to get away with them, go for it. Moderation is the key thing to remember here, while leather trousers and a simple singlet can look great, if you pair leather boots, trousers and jacket, you could end up looking like a washed out star rather than a fashion-savvy woman in her prime.
Of course, the real crowning glory to any rock chick ensemble is a beautiful, tough leather biker jacket. Choose wisely and your leather jacket will see you through thick and thin as it will look great with everything from skinny jeans and plimsolls to covering a floaty white dress and sandals. There are few jackets as versatile as the biker jacket and while it has real rock and roll roots, its now also a firm fashion favourite with trend setters the world over.
Transform yourself into a sophisticated rock chick ready for a wild night on the tiles by slipping on your womens leather biker jacket, using some soft kohl to outline your eyes and accessorising with some oversized silver or gold bangles. You’ll have the grown up rock chick look down to a T, all you’ll need to do to hang on to that glamorous aura is stay away from karaoke bars and the temptation to blast out a few classics.
