What is it about rockers and their unique brand of edgy, sexy, rebellious style that makes them so universally appealing? Luckily for you, you don’t need to be a rocker to adopt this style.
For inspiration, just take a look at the plethora of celebrities strutting around in shredded jeans and leather. Men easily flock to this look – bad boys like Salman Khan, Lenny Kravitz and Kanye West love their leather, fur and shredded jeans. Other fans include Adam Levine, Arjun Rampal, Akshaye Kumar and every woman’s heartthrob – Ryan Gosling.
When it comes to female celebs, Rihanna, Kate Moss, Victoria Beckham, Keisha and Halle Berry were amongst the many spotted over the years in leather skinnies and blazers. Closer home, our beautiful Bollywood babes have been displaying their wild side on and off screen. Katrina Kaif played an edgy rock star in Mere Brother ki Dulhan. The ultimate rocker girl, Priyanka Chopra, has been spotted in leather while promoting her new single – In the City. Not rebellious enough? How about Deepika Padukone in her studded skirt, sequined sheer top and bright pink bra in the opening scenes of Cocktail?

Here are a few tips on how to incorporate the rock chic look:
Look hot in skinny jeans (preferably leather), a tank top with lace inserts and a cropped denim/leather jacket. Accessorise with skull studs and gladiator heels. Leave your hair loose. Apply lip gloss and smudge your kajal for a smouldering look.
Tip: Wear this look to, where else, but a rock concert!
Wear a graphic printed black T-shirt with distressed jeans and boots. Cover up with a leather jacket. Accessorise with combat boots, and leather wristlets with metal studs. You can also try leather necklaces.
Tip: Wear this look to a bonfire night by the hills.
