I didn’t want my last blog post on pretty ballerinas to confuse you into thinking I’m all sugar and spice. You see just as much as I love me a pretty pastel chiffon and lace design, I also am a rough-around-the-edges rock-lovin’ chick (who admits she is a bit fearful of riding on the back of a bike) yet I often look as if I’m stepping off of one.
I’ll admit it, my closet looks like the blackout of 2003, but that’s the way I like it. What I also like is that this trend just won’t die, because it’s bad to the bone, just like the McQueen-inspired skulls that keep resurrecting themselves in designs. Gone are the days where I’d have to push through St Marks to get my punk on, I’m in luck these days because you can find biker edge at any price point, retail front and category.
Rev up those engines, here are my most coveted biker chic (who won’t get on a bike) items:
Rick Owens leather jacket ✔
Repossi multi-ring ear cuff ✔
Chanel shin-shielding bad *ss buckle boot ✔
And of course some Alexander Wang ✔
Rock on kids.
