The women of rock and roll have always fascinated and amazed me. From Patti Smith with her perfect white button down shirts to Alison Mosshart with her to-die-for gold booties, rocker chicks know how to evoke a vibe that’s tough but sexy, glam but not trying too hard, and fun with just the right touch of anger.
A woman who does rocker chic correctly is, in a word, cool. Ms. Mosshart, as I’ve opined previously, has it nailed. And it’s obviously not just about clothing. It’s attitude, the perfect bon mot, and lots of black eyeliner.
It’s what I tried to achieve here, though you all can be the judge of whether I’ve succeeded! A black concert T-shirt with a cut-out neckline (this is my favorite Bob Dylan version, which I’ve owned for about 15 years) seemed like a good start. The flannel lends a touch of grunge, and the sequin jacket brings the glam. Ripped jeans are obvious but necessary, and the gray suede platform booties give me some much-needed height. I also tried my hand at a smoky eye for the very first time, and I think it will not be my last.
