As a rule, I tend to be filed into the “preppy” category of personal style and at times, I don’t really know how I feel about this. I’d like to think that I take a few more risks than the typical Vineyard Vines wearing prepster but hey, it could be worse. At least people don’t call me “crazy cat lady chic”, whatever that means. This “preppy” classification is why I’ve chosen the formidable Joan Jett as this week’s Girl Crush. Joan’s style is probably even more recognizable than her face. This girl has a look that is all her own and accessorizing is most certainly her forte. Joan may always have her signature red spandex and black leather at hand but, she always makes sure to glam it up with some chic necklaces and more than a few wrist accessories/ bangles.
Copying Ms. Jett’s look is much easier than you think. Plus, it’s a great way to change things up a little when you don’t like the “style category” that you’ve been thrust into by others. Check out the items below to formulate your rocker-chic shopping list:
