Do you listen to the Ramones, The Clash, Demonic Ressurection, and Metallica in your headphones but your wardrobe doesn’t match your hard core soul? Rock is about expression and being loud. Apply these concepts to your wardrobe to showcase your rocker style with a rocker outfit or two.
Rocker style clothing has a rebellious attitude to it. As rock music is progressive and anti-establishment, the clothing tends to send the same message. You’ll find clothing that delivers a strong message and stands out instead of muted clothing that blends into the background.
While progressive in attitude, rock style also includes throwbacks to classic rock music and the style of the rock icons who sang our favorite songs, combining vintage and modern fashion aesthetics.
A rocker outfit tends to be casual, but you can definitely make it formal and sexy as well. You’ll see a lot of black and gray along with bright neon colors.
While somewhat similar in nature and sometimes overlapping, rocker style clothing is different than goth style as it emphasizes a happier and brighter aesthetic.
Going all out every day works for some people. However, most people only go all out for concerts. That doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate your rocker style to everyday outfits at work or family events.
Rocker Style Tops
Start your rocker style off with band tees that showcase your favorite bands. Many band tees come in black and grey tones. However, you can find colorful band tees, especially when talking about jam bands like The Grateful Dead.
Only pick bands you truly love. Your shirt may work as an ice breaker, and you don’t want to have an awkward conversation if you don’t know anything about the band. Also, don’t think you have to stick to the traditional favorites. Buy tee shirts from concerts you go to, whether it’s considered “cool” or not.
Tattered Tank Tops
While your grandma may want to go buy you a new shirt when they see you, look for tattered shirts. You can buy shirts with the holes in them already, or you can cut the holes yourself. Add an additional rocker touch by using large safety pins to close the holes.
Immediately add edge to any style with a leather jacket. You can wear your leather jacket with jeans and a band tee or even a cute dress.
Rocker Style Bottoms
Rocker jeans stand out thanks to their additional flair, such as holes, patches, and extra pockets and zippers.
You can choose between tight skinny jeans that increase the sexual element of the rocker outfit or hip, baggy jeans.
You can add a rocker vibe to your style with a leather mini skirt. Leather mini skirts are sexy with an edge, making them perfect for a night out at a rocker bar. However, skirts aren’t usually ideal for concerts!
Rocker Style Shoes
Most rockers complete the look with a pair of boots. While traditionally a male item, women today are rocking combat boots with everything from jeans to dresses.
Women can also enjoy high heel boots. Many companies make high heel boots with additional rocker elements, such as skull designs or added zippers.
When boots aren’t appropriate, you can’t go wrong with a pair of sneakers, such as Converse. These every day shoes have been work by members of your favorite bands for decades, and they’re still in style today (albeit for a retro look).
Rocker Style Accessories
When you want to create a rocker look, you can’t skimp on the accessories. Wear belts with skull belt buckles or chain belts. You can also wear neon accessories or safety pin jewelry.
Black chockers and large necklaces, bracelets, and rings contribute to the overall look.
How to Include Rocker Style Clothing to Everyday Situations
It’s easy to rock rocker style at a biker bar or a rock concert. However, you may want to know how to incorporate your rocker attire into day-to-day activities.
To include rocker style at work while staying professional, wear your leather jacket into the office (but take it off as necessary).
You may not be able to wear your band tees, but you may be able to find button up shirts with skull buttons.
You can also wear rocker accessories, such as a leather wrist cuff or neon jewelry.
The best way to feel like a rocker at the gym is to create a high energy rock workout playlist. You can also wear old band tee shirts to the gym to give you rocker strength when working out.
When spending time with family, you want to show respect while still showing your personal aesthetic.
Avoid your most controversial pieces. However, you can still wear a leather jacket and boots or wear your favorite accessories.
If you are blessed with a traditional family, you can take on the challenge of turning your saree into a rock fashion statement by choosing untraditional colors and wearing combat boots instead of sandals (assuming it’s not too hot).
