Do you remember the amazing music of the 1960’s? If so, consider yourself lucky. If you weren’t around yet, you’ve most likely heard about the rock festivals filled with crowds of music fans sporting a bohemian-style and expressing social harmony in the summer of love.
Although rock & roll in the early 60s began with turtle necks and pencil skirts, I’d like to pick it up from the era of Janis Joplin, when rock & roll became bolder, sexier and more enchanting .¨ the era of bell-bottom jeans, sequins and the suede mini skirt. The music of the 60’s said “Bye, Bye Baby” and the new fashion styles told the bell bottoms to “Move Over.”
As decades have come and gone, we certainly have seen it all – heavy eyeliner, poodle hair, zebra pants and gigantic shoulder pads. And, as they say, “History repeats itself.” Even today, you can go to concerts and still see the eternal influence of the righteous 60’s in the fringed vests, patterned bandanas and acid washed jeans.
Whether you are a rock & roll female enthusiast, a loyal groupie or simply someone who loves the rock & roll style, you will appreciate our next few tips from a true rocker chick herself, Holley Wolfe, on how to look cool, chic and rocked out in today’s modern world.

This look is beyond effortless. Pair up the skirt with a V-neck tee like the one in the photo, or even a cute graphic/rock band tee. The use of accessories can polish up any look. Here I threw on an elastic metal link belt, my favorite scarf, a bit of jewelry, my Stella McCartney faux leather bag, and I am ready to go!
