Above, you'll see three outfits--each representing the "rocker" look. What's different about these outfits, though, is that they're far less "grungy" than a typical rock style would be. The key to creating a chic grungy style is taking an innocent piece and transforming it.
After Party Rocker
The first outfit takes a classy, innocent, lacy blouse and turns it into a force to be reckoned with. By pairing it with a skater skirt and a chunky belt, it becomes more casual. Add the knee-high heels and the skull earrings, and you have a look that screams "concert after party!"
At the Rock Show
The middle outfit starts off with a loud, grunge-style top, but is toned down with the calm, white skinny jeans. Add a bold red necklace and stunning red heels and it turns the excitement up again. This is a great outfit to go watch your favorite band jam out.
Finally, we have a professional rocker look. The cream top--even paired with the black waist belt--is classy and timeless. Add black studs and it becomes elegant. But take it up a notch and add distressed black pants and a pair of studded black boots, and you've got a rock-worthy outfit.
As you can see, dressing up a grungy style is all about transforming innocent clothing into high-class, rock-show worthy outfits.
