One of our very favorite looks for fall of ‘13 is the retro rocker look. Think Kate Hudson in “Almost Famous” mixed with a little bit of Stevie Nicks circa her Fleetwood Mac ‘70s days with just a touch of Janis Joplin rocker attitude thrown in for good measure. This look blends flowy Bohemian with edgier rocker styles and the result is simply fabulous. Many pieces that are already in vogue and have been for a few years are definitely part of this look, and other pieces are making a resurgence and getting an updated edge for modern day.
Designers that already have a heavy hand in Boho chic are the leaders in this look. These include Rachel Zoe, Nicole Richie and Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. Distressed skinny jeans are a staple in this look, the more ripped up and/or bedazzled, the better. Top those with a flowy and frilly white blouse so sheer that you need a spaghetti-strapped tank underneath. And the accessories totally make this look, so go big or go home with a wide-brim floppy hat, some granny shades ala John Lennon, silver and turquoise jewelry, ankle boots, fringed scarves and leather bags with embossed etchings. You add all this together and you’ll be ready to head out to any rock show in the 1970s and you would fit in perfectly.
