Everyone has an inner rocker in them! You might have been one, worn the hippest trends or rock n rolled through the 60’s and 70’s.
Either way you are going to love the new exhibition at the Victoria and Albert museum in London. Named My Generation: The glory years of British rock n roll, the exhibition brings together a collection of photographs by Harry Goodwin, the Top of the Pops resident photographer. The collection are described as ‘capturing the mood and style of the 60s and 70s, and the impact of its musical stars’. With photo’s of the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix, we can’t wait to get down there!
Embrace your inner rocker! Here are our top products on how you can recreate the ‘rock chick’ look:
Items: structured shoulder dress, tiger print body suit, silk zip jacket, studded cardigan, skinny fit jeans, cuff heeled shoes
Everyone has a bit of a dark side, and in fashion this seems to be epitomised in the ever evolving rock chick trend. Good girls go bad with dark colours and studded details, sweet dresses get a sexy kick with studded belts and shoes.
If you need some celebrity inspiration, think Kate Moss, or The Twilight star, Kristen Stewart.
We have seen this look before, but this time it’s got a lot more studded detail, and more added sparkle. The focus is on “edging” up a classic girly look. Are pink high heels rock n roll? With studs on they are!
The rock chick look requires only one or two pieces to give your outfit an edge and it works really well with other big trends this year such as lace and floral’s. This season, why not combine a studded belt or scarf with a sweet floral dress? Or team up some lace leggings with some studded shoe boots? We have some great rock chick pieces to slot into your everyday wardrobe online, so have a browse.
And remember, however you choose to express your inner rock chick, there is only one accessory you will always need…attitude!
If you’re in need of some stylish inspiration, look no further than London’s Portobello Road. Not only are there amazing vintage finds and jewellery stalls every few steps, but the fashion parade of stylish Londoners makes for a fabulous afternoon of people-watching and trend-spotting.
The cute girls shopping and browsing this afternoon had on lots of spring’s key trends like floral prints, lace and rock-chick style, seen on everything from studded accessories to tough-looking boots and jackets. We love how these girls put their individual spin on the trends – adding a burst of colour to an all-black outfit with a scarf or toughening up funky florals with a leather bomber (or giving them a preppy edge with a hunting jacket). Not even the occasional drizzle of rain could stand in their way!
Maybe we’ll snap a shot of you next time we’re in the neighbourhood…until then, happy shopping!
