Dress to Rock

Stylist to the stars and fashion designer Rachel Zoe’s motto is, “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” Style is often influenced by culture, social status, geography, art and music. As an entertainment venue we get a chance to see different genres of music from hip hop to hoedowns walk through our doors every week. We have gotten a first look as to how music influences the masses in not only spirit, but in personal style as well. Here are four styles we have embraced throughout the years and tips on how to get their looks.

The first look we adore is the Retro Swing Dance look inspired by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. The look swings us back to the 1920’s along with some 21st century flare.

The Blues Brothers aren’t the only ones who can rock this formal look, now you can too! Pencil skirts never go out of style and spice up this simple look with printed shoes, like these leopard printed ones from Lucky Brand.

The Camouflage look was encouraged by Jake Miller when he stopped by Huntington back in November. You can take simple camouflage and pair it with a white lace dress, boots and finish off the look with a cross over bag and sunglasses.

Rocker Chic has never looked so good! Avril Lavigne and Taylor Momsen are known for this daring rock-n-roll look, but if you don’t want to dare to be bold then don’t worry we have the perfect look for you. Leather jackets aren’t just for bikers; you can layer it over a casual printed tee and leather leggings.

I Love Amp Jacket $77.99
Corner Shop Embellished Floral Cross Muscle Tee $39.00
Highlight of Your Chic Leggings $34.99
Unisexy Sunglasses $11.99

Don’t forget to finish off your look with accessories such as a chunky bracelet, studded earrings, or a bold colorful necklace. Fashion is inspired by music and style is how you interpret it; have fun with what you wear and don’t be afraid to take risks.
