Do this year’s rock blockbusters, A Star is Born, and Bohemian Rhapsody have you inspired to take your show on the road? If so, you’ll need to dress the part. If you’re with the band, it’s all about that seventies SoCal style and looking effortlessly cool. Think Jim Morrison, Keith Richards, and the Eagles to name just a few. Just be careful while pulling the arrangement together, one wrong note and the look gets costumey and contrived. Open your set with a classic base and amp up the look with a scarf or some leather pieces. We present these five guitar-solo worthy basics you need to rock the look.
Take it easy in this trucker remix from J.Crew’s breakout brand, Madewell. You’ll channel Bradley Cooper’s character in A Star is Born (with cleaner hair of course) wearing this laid-back, relaxed fit corduroy rendition complete with cozy Sherpa lining.
Skip the one-season wonders and look for pieces that will stand the test of time. Classic rock, like this vintage chambray shirt from J.Crew, will never go out of style. It’s made from Japanese cotton selvedge chambray. It’s as cool as a denim work shirt but can be worn as part of a preppier safe for work duo when paired with khakis.
We’re not suggesting you part with any of your old school concert tees but hear us out. Unless you’re a roadie, it’s a mistake to wear all your rock-inspired clothing at the same time. Keep it simple by grounding the look in a super soft, lived-in tee like this Lucky Brand Venice Burnout V-Neck. Steering clear of the guitar pick necklaces and black nail polish will also help keep your look believable.
True So Cal seventies rocker style has a lot of western influences. If you’re hoping to look more Jonny Cash than urban cowboy swap out your indigo denim for black jeans. We’re fans of the iconic Levi’s Vintage Clothing 606 slim-fitting pair. Like vinyl, these jeans are a hit from the past appreciated by a discerning collector.
It can take years of being on the road to get the perfect pair. Or you can fast forward to these washed suede Chelsea boots from designer, John Varvatos. Whether you’re jamming in your favorite dive bar or accepting a Grammy in a three-piece suit, these Fleetwood boots are made for walking.
