Rockstar Fashion

Current Rockstar fashion is taking a turn back to the nineties. Iconic pieces like overalls and hoop earrings are making a comeback with just a little bit of a modernized twist. Find out how to rock old favorites in a fresh way to fit in with the rock scene these days.

Accessories

Choker necklace styles are hot throughout the rock scene. “Tattoo” style plastic chokers in classic black and all sorts of other hues are popular, particularly paired with longer necklaces and pendants. This necklace stacking technique creates a three dimensional display right over an edgy top. Ribbon, velvet, and small charms are also hits in the choker realm.

Hoops are back. Large, metallic circles adorn different music stars’ lobes as they perform, just like they did several decades ago. Silver, gold, and rhinestone patterns alike are making their way into celeb rock scenes across the US.

Scrunchies in solids, patterns, textures, and different widths are entering back into play in the rock scene. While scrunchies are practical in that they are less likely to break hair than elastics, they also add a touch of pizzazz. Nineties style scrunchies are the perfect way for rock musicians, male and female alike, to keep locks out of their faces while jamming out.

Tops

Crops are everything. Rather than cropped tanks, tees and sweaters are getting the hack job and being worn to show off midriffs with flared jeans or high-waisted “mom jeans.” Crops with graphic images, slogans, and characters from various shows are gaining popularity, as are different knits with bold stripes. Some are neutral while others boast bold, bright colors. Basic black is always a hit, regardless of rock venue.

Bottoms

Overalls are making a comeback. According to our friends at Pickup Plug, lead guitarists are once again rockin’ it out with one shoulder strap unbuckled. Corduroy, basic black, patterned, and cutoff, these classic bottoms are being paired with crops, turtlenecks, and all sorts of other tops to create nineties-inspired masterpieces.

Flared jeans are coming back to life. While skinnies are a classic, super cigarette style jeans are fading while larger hems are making their way back to the scene. Washes in light, dark, and medium are flooding stages everywhere in lots of different distressed patterns. Wait for the patches and sequins to make appearances and the good old 1990’s will reign again in all their glory.

Shoes

Platforms, Birks, Chucks, Mary Janes, and basic pool slides are all making their way back into the fashion scene for rock musicians. Platforms extend all the way from heels to sneakers to oxfords. Different shoes adopt chunky, rubber soles with different levels of traction to make a statement all their own. Birkenstocks take on different forms of sandals to appeal to a wide variety of aesthetic tastes. Chuck Taylors are the epitome of a classic sneaker; black is perfect for a rock concert. Mary Janes may fall into the platform category or come with a skinnier sole, depending on the particular style. Perhaps pool slides are donned after the concert to give feet a break from the grind.

Accessories, tops, bottoms, and shoes are all fair game for the nineties trend as it returns to the rock music scene. Enjoy this blast from the past while it lasts; soon another trend will be taking over for US rockstars.
