It’s been a long time since I rock & rolled! In this post I’m sharing how to style a band T. There are some do’s and don’ts so make sure you pay close attention! Firstly, A band T shirt is one of the easiest things to style. You can wear it with jeans, a leather jacket, a high waisted skirt, shorts or some booties. Remember the store Hot Topic? Well I never shopped there as a teenager, but I recently discovered their amazing wall of band T’s – their selection is out of this world! That’s where I scored this colorful Led Zeppelin shirt. I styled my T with a pleated skirt and some block heel booties. I love the casual style that has come around the past few years because you can throw on your favorite T-shirt, some jeans and some sneakers and still be on trend. I’m not really a sneakers girl, but they definitely work with so many different outfits!
Secondly, please don’t be one of those people who styles a band shirt for the sake of being cool and trying to be stylish. This might be harsh, but if you’re wearing a Metallica shirt, you bet I will be asking what your top 3 favorite Metallica songs are 😛 It bothers me when people do that – it’s just unauthentic. If you really love a band then you should represent them, otherwise you’re just a poser in my eyes. If band T’s aren’t your thing, check out Nasty Gal’s collection of graphic T-shirts – they are having an 80% off sale too!
As for me, well I’m a classic rock junkie. Give me all of the Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Doors, Tom Petty and Jefferson Airplane shirts. I got my great taste in music from my mom who was born in 1961. I really wish I could go back in time, I’d give ANYTHING to see Led Zeppelin, my favorite band, perform live. Fingers crossed they do at least one more reunion tour… There’s something about classic rock that makes me feel so nostalgic. The music they made back then is incomparable. When I listen to my favorite rock songs I am transported decades back and I just imagine myself sitting in the sun during Woodstock watching history unravel.
In this photo shoot I was wandering around an antique store. The lights and fun trinkets made the perfect backdrop for this vintage-inspired shoot. Now tell me, do you listen to rock & roll? If so what are your favorite bands. Would you wear a band T shirt and if so, how would you style it?
