Rock Chic – She Will Rock You

Rock chic, not to be confused with Rock Chick…

…trust me, two totally different looks!

Rock Chic is a little bit rock’n’roll and has a whole lot of fierce going on! One way to pull this look off is by mixing tough leather with not so sweet lace, another huge trend this season. A blending of both these trends will put a new twist on these two classics.

I’m not really a leather or a lace girl and if you don’t count leather accessories or lacey under-garments, I wouldn’t have had anything to say about this trend until this last 12 months. Because, these times they are a changing and apparently so am I, my current wardrobe, though expanding,  is pretty lean on both. However by working them together I can certainly pull the look off in a pinch. Which I did for the Lenny Kravitz concert this past weekend. For my look, I kept it simple with black and white adding the leather bomber jacket, purchased from, and the patent Prada loafers. I knew we would be walking a fair distance to the concert venue and even though I have a F-I-E-R-C-E pair of black leather heels I needed something I could not only walk in but be prepared to stand for a couple of hours in.

I totally love this Rock Chic look taken of another Lenny fan because of the play on lace in the stockings and the fur vest. She looked way more “Rock-n-Roll” than I did…but then I’m probably twice her age!

It’s official: Leather isn’t just for jackets, bags, and boots anymore. Welcome to the season of the leather dress, all part of leather’s more feminine makeover. From motorcycle looks to sexier vamp styles, skins are all the rage this season when it is perfect for our upcoming grey months, not only is it stylish and luxurious, but it’s practical for keeping you warm and dry!

Thanks to the beautiful patchwork leather dress shown by Flannel at LMFF this month, I am desperately wanting to expand my options in this trend!
