If there’s one trend getting all the fashionistas excited this autumn, it’s the glam rock trend. Rock and fashion have always had a great relationship and now it has taken over make-up, clothes and even lingerie. Found on the catwalks for this season were skin tight sequin leggings at Gucci and Ungaro, tough biker jackets at Armand Basi and Balmain, all cavorting with that rock chick look.
In the lingerie world, Marlies Dekkers paves the way with her signature strong structured shapes and black bras. Simone Pérèle embraces a brighter rock chick look with lingerie in jet black and blood red. Stockings and suspender belts ooze rock chick sex appeal.
This winter’s trend is a more grown up version of last season’s punk. One item you cannot live without is a sexy leather jacket. If you want to be right on trend try a tailored leather blazer or one plastered with classic studs; accessories need plenty of attitude. Rock chick style is here to stay and as a self-confessed grunge addict, Lauren Laverne was quoted saying, “A tough look on a pretty girl will always look great. There is a carelessness to the look that will always make it appealing”.
