Rock’n’roll has always been about more than just the music. Since this genre first appeared in the 1950s, rock music has acted as a social aggregator for youth. At last there was someone talking about what it was like to be young, who represented something they could see themselves reflected in, as opposed to what music had offered up until that moment, controlled exclusively by adults.
It’s thanks to rock ’n’ roll that music starts being connected more and more to fashion and becomes a true form of expression. Musicians communicate not only through their uninhibited songs, but also through their outfits, which become more extravagant, bold, anti-conformist and break entirely with the world of adults: like Elvis Presley, one of the first rockers in history.
Rock ’n’ roll inspires youth fashion
What was happening back then? Young people begin to look up to rock stars because, for the first time, someone’s taking an interest in them. They recognise themselves in the lyrics and start to copy their idols’ styles: jeans, flashy shirts, t-shirts, bangs and hair styled with Brylcream hair wax.
What comes next: fashion evolves, reinvents itself, embraces a new language and comes back transformed, decade after decade. And this is exactly what happened with rock fashion: with the arrival of punk we see ripped jeans and provocative shirts, with heavy metal hair gets crazily big and the colour palette goes darker. In the ‘90s grunge attracts young people with it’s rough, unpolished sounds and plaid flannel shirts. But rock also has a softer, feminine side.
Romantic rock: women’s fashion in 2018
In 2018, rock fashion is fully dedicated to females: typically grunge elements mix with tulle, sequins and pastel colours to create a style that knows how to be both strong and romantic at the same time. It’s a style that many stars have fallen in love with, from Rihanna to Madonna, and who’ve worked rock-inspired looks on many occasions, with leather taking the forefront, mixed with delicate chiffon dresses, sequins and romantic accessories. Which is how romantic rock was born, a term commonly used to define this feminine style.
Accessories are what make a look truly romantic rock: all it takes is one piece of jewellery or a small detail to completely transform an outfit.
