Masculine Monday: We Haven’t Forgotten About the Rocker Boys!

With so much focus recently being given towards the renewed sense of classic men’s fashion making a strong and steady comeback, certainly didn’t  want to give the impression that we’ve forgotten the pathfinders (or path makers, rather) in men’s style… The Musicians.

Rock Stars will simply never go out of style. They’ve always been there, and so long as the tide keeps turning, there they will remain…

Bob Dylan

Men like Robert Plant, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Kurt Cobain and Jack White, who make their own place in fashion history by creating their own personal and powerful style distinctions… Wearing them with the pride and swagger that belongs only to Rock Stars.

Not only are Rockers adored for their fashion risks, but applauded for just how well they seem to work, no matter how bizarre. ‘80s Rock Band Poison created a fashion sensation among fellow artists and fans with the bright purple leggings worn by guitarist C.C. Deville and front man, Bret Michaels.

And don’t laugh, ladies.. I know a good few of you sent in audition tapes to Rock of Love. One, Two, and THREE!

(It’s alright. So did I…)

Women love musicians. Is it a cliché?  Yes. It is also an inarguable truth.

Kate Hudson is pregnant, and happily engaged to Rocker Matt Bellamy, front-man of Muse. The charming and talented daughter of Goldie Hawn has had a magnetic pull towards musicians throughout her love life, but this Penny Lane finally seems to have found her soul mate in Bellamy.

Kate looks absolutely stunning in every recent photograph, beaming with happiness and excitement to begin their life together as a Family.

Another gorgeous Actress who has fallen under the spell of a musician is the lovely Kiera Knightley. Rumors of a blooming relationship between Knightley and James Righton, keyboard player for rock band Klaxons, have been confirmed recently through very telling images.

These two coordinating cuties were introduced through mutual friend, Alexa Chung about five weeks ago.

What’s becoming so likeable about the new Rocker Boy fashions is the mild approach to daily ensembles, a casual appearance that has been taking a backseat to way-too-tight pants and super long locks for the past few years.

With a solid pair of charcoal or black sneakers, a plain white tee, some worn jeans and charismatic sunglasses, Rocker Boy’s today are looking ultra adorable in their casual wear. Their Leading Ladies seem to love it too… 

So, a few tips on obtaining the simplified Rock Star Style that is capturing hearts from here to England:

Understated, and Making a Statement: The Long Sleeved White Tee

Many of us forget about the long-sleeve lightweight tee. This doesn’t have to be just an undershirt. It looks great by itself, especially highlighted with a great accessory (i.e. watch, bracelet, etc.). Some slick linen pants and sandals would also be right at home with this one – $19 at 80sPurple.com

Men’s Shirts: Patch tees and men’s button down shirts can take a guy from organization casual to rocker on the prowl. Men’s shirt brands like English Laundry, Local Celebrity and Suitable English all offer you wonderful men’s t-shirt styles.

Outerwear and Accessories: Jackets with hand made patchwork, Heirloom buckled belts, simple fashions that exhibit a vintage appeal such as old-fashioned bomber jackets and leather strapped wristwatches will help to achieve the kicked-back Rocker look.

A New Spin on Classic Khaki’s

Khaki’s are making a substantial evolution in men’s fashion.  These summer staples are a beautiful way to maintain a crisp look for the bottom half – Men’s Long Beach pants – $109 at  80spurple.com.

Simple Kicks

Sneakers that are basic in color and fit, absent of any bright accents are a fantastic feature of any laid-back rock star style. These white and grey simple kicks are sure to be a hit on any pair of feet, whether or not they’ll be kicking drum pedals by the end of the night.   $83.95 at Zappos.com

Stylist Manifesto: Sometimes the most appropriate way to go is minimalist. From shoes to accessories, tops to bottoms, there are times when simplicity works best.

So, there you have it fellas. Get the appeal of a rock star, whether you’re a musician, banker or athlete. The attraction of the rocker boy fashion is all in how you wear it. So slip on a pair of casual kicks and a plain white tee. Pair it up with a vintage wristwatch, some charismatic shades, and before you know it…

The Keira Knightley or Kate Hudson you’ve been waiting for will be walking your way!
