t.r.e.n.d: Rockabilly Baby

Rockabilly is back! Think tough leather, leopard prints, biker jackets blinged up with sequins and metallics. Every rock fashionista would crave for a piece of DSquared2 - printed tees, loud prints and leather skinny pants, paired with oversized sunglasses and a regular starbucks coffee creates a casual-meets-rock image. Charles Anastase punks up his sheer cropped organza pants with a glossy biker jacket and oversized white tee. This fall Blumarine turned to neons, leopard prints and bling to present a Balmain-inspired collection. The jacket-and-flashy-jeans combo may seem OTT, but it still oozes an ideal dose of rockabilly attitude.

The 5os vibe is present in beauty editorials such as April's Vogue China. Du Juan and Sara Blomqvist show us what rock is with uber doses of rock attitude and uber loads of hair. Hair was toussled and teased to the maximum, like a huge beehive. Black winged eyeliner and strong brows also topped off the look.

  5. I love the outfit and styling on Iekeliene, I could wear that every day. Also, I'd have have to add the resurgence of creepers to any conversation about rockabily.
