Fashion 118: rock chick

05 August 2009

Do you have any advice about getting the rock-chick look? I know the punk thing is back and I love my leggings and oversized tees, but I want more variety. Most of my clothes are animal print, black or grey, and I own a token leather jacket. How do I give it a new spin? Natasha Edwards

Speaking as someone who was (almost) there first time around, I can reassure you that punk is not about purchasing power. It's about a few key basics and some nasty-looking accessories. Basic black is the uniform. A new way to spin it would be to try a pretty black dress with your leather jacket, like Diane Kruger, or a blazer with skinny jeans, à la Hayden Panettiere. After that, it's all about a great belt and a fierce heel. My money would be invested in some multi-strap biker boots.
