Sorry I’ve been MIA fashion minions. New York City has held all my attention these past weeks. Which is a lame excuse, but I cross my heart to have some ootds with lots of graffiti and city backdrops up soon. For now I wanted to let you know about the ‘Strut Your Style’ pin & win contest DivineCaroline.com is hosting. This month they asked me to create an edgy inspiration board for the Rocker Chic trend, and I had a blast picking my favorite pieces (of course there is a black lipstick in the mix). The other styles featured range from prepster to sports luxe. Check out DivineCaroline.com for a peek at the other boards, and pin your favorite looks for a chance to win $500. Inspired by badass music legends like Janis Joplin and Pat Benatar, the new rocker chic trend is one part vamp, two parts devil horns, with just a dash of flirty. With designers from Versace to Emilio Pucci forgoing trendy spring florals and pastels in favor of leather and acid wash in luxe fabrics, the edge of rock ‘n’ roll is going high-fashion. If you’re not sure how to bridge these worlds, try mixing chunky, hardware-heavy boots with a feminine-cut skirt like I did with this denim skater skirt and black boots. Whether you’re an avid concert goer, or just prefer to sport a badass look, keep your devil horns up with these must-rock picks.
Love from New York,
