’80s rocker girl came to my mind when I saw this Fashionista. Joan Jett, Debbie Harry and Cherie Currie all had their own personal style and were style icons of the ’80s. These ladies were daring and loved to shock the world. They weren’t afraid to bust out their finest leather and show their wild side. Like these women, this Fashionista shows her wild side with her favorite leather jacket and some cheetah print.
I couldn’t help but think of Debbie Harry when I saw this Fashionista. Bleach blonde hair, leather duds and a black pair of Dr. Martens; she was my ’80s style icon. I love the way this Fashionista rocks the ’80s by tucking her cheetah printed top into her jeans and boots. Topping it off, she perfects her rock ‘n’ roll look with a leather jacket.
Animal prints are back once again for fall 2013. DKNY, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Thakoon all put animal prints on their runways for fall. To rock animal print like this Fashionista, keep it basic. Try one item of print with dark colors so that the animal print will really pop. For another touch of ’80s flair, go with a dark wash high-waisted denim. As always, add some leather and pins to accessorize your rocker look.
For a top like this Fashionista’s, try this one from Topshop. To get a pair of high-waisted jeans like her, snag these CURRENT/ELLIOTT ones from Farfetch. Leather jackets are easy to come by in Nashville and are found at most vintage stores. For the budget conscious Fashionista, try this one from NASTY GAL!
Whether you are trying to channel your inner Debbie Harry or just trying to bust out some leather this fall, add some animal print to your look for a fun punch to your look.
