If you’re attending a rock show, don’t wear the band’s T-shirt; this would look rather lame and sit somewhere between handing out mixtapes outside rap shows and your dad wearing his Grand Funk Railroad shirt.
Girly clothes can take on an edge when combined with rock-style items like combat boots or holy jeans. Additionally, you could add flair by donning an extravagant peacock or dandy look for added rock flare.
Grow Your Hair Out
Rocker style requires long hair, whether that means rocking a jealousy-inducing afro or an elegant, moppy lead guitarist style. Don’t fret if your locks haven’t reached this length yet; layering and accessorizing can still complete the look! Experiment with headbands, bobby pins, and other creative hair accessories to keep shorter bits in place until they grow out further.
To bring out your inner 80s rocker, wear a black T-shirt featuring logos or names of bands you admire printed on it. A brand new T-shirt may lack that rock-n-roll aesthetic; for an authentic rock-n-roll experience, choose one with worn edges and colors.
Pair a tee with skinny jeans or leather leggings, a denim vest, a black jacket for extra warmth or a leather bomber for concerts if necessary, dark sunglasses, and a fedora to complete this classic rocker ensemble and ensure people take notice! You’re sure to make an impressionful statement about yourself with this casual yet chic ensemble.
Wear a T-shirt and Jeans
At its heart lies jeans and a t-shirt: one of the iconic outfits to evoke rock star chic! Nothing says rocker like wearing your favorite band t-shirt and pairing it with either straight-leg, skinny-leg, wide-leg denim, or plaid flannel jeans for even more rock star flair! Add boots for an outfit perfect for hanging out with friends or attending shows!
Classic blue, black, and white jeans go perfectly with most rocker shirts; however, don’t be intimidated to try other colors of denim! Burgundy denim can add an unexpected yet sophisticated touch when worn with band tees; make sure the colors match so the ensemble doesn’t appear mismatched.
As for rocker jeans, ripped and distressed styles can help complete the look. Cut strategically placed holes or take time pulling the denim yourself to achieve this style; either will work – just be sure to choose a pair that fits you well without leaving unattractive knee-area rips!
Add some variety to your outfit by opting for ankle-length boots or shoes without heels to give your legs an elongated and leaner appearance and to help offset the weight of a jacket. For an eye-catching feminine look, choose shoes with plenty of details or trim for added interest.
An elegant jacket can make an excellent finishing touch to any rocker shirt outfit, creating a sleek, stylish, and professional aesthetic. A jacket also makes a fantastic option when attending events requiring formal attire, such as band gigs.
Wear a Grandpa Sweater
When hearing “grandpa sweater,,” you might think of a kind elderly gentleman wearing an oversized cardigan around his home or maybe Mr. Rogers from your childhood television program, but fashion has evolved beyond this outdated image: oversize cardigans have quickly become one of these winter’s hottest trends.
This type of sweater can be worn in various settings and pairs well with either casual or dressier pants. Cardigans typically feature a V-neck with buttons; more formal models may feature banded shawl collars instead. Color choices could range from neutral hues like gray or brown to vibrant shades such as red or blue for an ideal match.
Wear it casually with dark jeans and your rocker shirt for a more laid-back vibe, or pair it with more formal clothing like a striped button-up shirt with its sleeves rolled up for a dressier feel. Tuck or French tuck your sweater into jeans for an elevated appearance – either way, it will enhance your sense of style and help set yourself apart from others! No matter which way it’s worn, a cardigan will add to your sense of style and help set you apart from others in any crowd!
Wear a Boys’ Over-Shirt
If you want to add an elegant element to your rocker look, consider wearing a boys’ over-shirt. With various colors and patterns available, there’s bound to be one to fit your taste! Pair one with jeans and combat boots for a grungy ensemble, or tuck it into dress pants for a more polished style.
This Lilo & Stitch Rocks boys’ shirt features a black and red guitar with Stitch’s name written out in yellow letters on its front. Crafted from soft cotton for optimal comfort and versatility, this graphic tee is an excellent way to show your appreciation of rock music!
Though some might object to people wearing band shirts without actively listening to the bands themselves being true fans, there’s really no right or wrong answer when it comes to purchasing their merchandise – as long as people do buy it and help the band make money and extend their career, that is good. Plus if it makes your boy feel confident wearing their favorite band’s shirt, that’s what matters! Ralph Lauren offers casual shirts and dress shirts in both classic and slim fits for boys, so you’re sure to find a match!
