Rock The Band Tee
As of last night we were going through my husbands closet sorting through getting rid of his many out dated clothing items. Even though he fought me tooth and nail over those old double denim JNCO floor sweeper jeans from 1999, it got me thinking as shirt after shirt I shook my head and motioned to the no way get rid of it now pile. In a loving kind way of course. If you are at all familiar with us and this site you would know of our passion and love for music from 90's grunge 70's rock to punk rock and a plethora more of course. We have wanted to make a site that encompassed all of this with our handcrafted items. So to the point this got me thinking of the power of the band tee. It never goes out of style you can not really go wrong it shows who and what your taste in music is and let's face it unless it is a Hanson tee (if you are a 90's kid you would know this was the mmmbop 3 brother band that was a flash in the pan band ). Ok an NSYNC tee too although I may give a dude mad props for rocking that it would actually be kinda funny, but at the end of the day it is going to be bye,bye, bye. See you can not go wrong even with a bad band most people would find it amusing am I crazy?
Anyways shirt after shirt the words out dated and douchy kept being called out as we went through my husbands closets, but the band tees were all keepers. Every single one was a hell yes put that in the keeper pile, why do you not wear that more often. How many ways can you rock the band tee?
Let's find out. This will be a two part blog with first giving the many options of rocking a band tee for the gals first then the second blog will be for the guys.
Tee's For The Chica's
We will do summer time options seeing as how it is summer. Believe it or not but a band tee and maxi skirt are a great casual go to option. It is perfect for a night out with friends to a dinner date or your summer music festival. It has an effortless edgy easy girl feel not as in easy to get in bed, easy as in she we do not take two hours to get ready. Even though you may. There is a couple of tricks to keep the look flattering unless you are pin thin you could look a bit boxy depending on how you style it or how your band tee or tank is cut. Tying it in a knot in the front or back, can show off the curve of your waist or if your are comfortable showing your tummy go the way of the crop top band tee or tie your knot higher in the center. For this look here I tied my trapeze Aerosmith tank in the back, and paired it with a black sheer 'm' slit maxi skirt with shorts built in. It is comfortable and so perfect for summer. We added our black leather fringe rocker bag with our spiked out strap to bad ass it up.
The Band T & Maxi Skirt
More Band Tee Outfit Options
The classic band tee and jean or cut off shorts look. The perfect festival or just plain everyday rocker summer fashion staple. You can do it as in the all powerful band tee with bell bottoms to skinny jeans, from destroyed and tattered to dark and light wash. You can tie it in a knot if it is a looser one or rock the fitted band tees and tanks. Personally I like the fitted ones better for my body shape and size but that is just me do whatever floats your boat. This is fashion made simple and easy and always looks great. It makes a statement of who you are and what you like. I would avoid people who wear Slipknot tee shirts as it warns me that they may be a serial killer or just someone that may not entirely be sound of mind I know not to judge a book by it's cover but sometimes there are some warning signs and that may be one of them lol. Here are some denim and band tee rocker boho festival fashion concept outfit ideas.
Going vintage for this rock it 70's style look with paired a hippie flare jean and a
The Band Tee & Boyfriend Jean. We knotted this band tank in the back and added a black vintage belt. Paired with our black leather obsidian arrowhead choker and our signature logo leather fringe rocker bag.
A Rolling Stones T shirt paired with some cut offs a plaid flannel shirt wrapped around the hips for that good old fashion 90 's fashion feel topped of with our red flower crown, long leather fringe cuff and handcrafted leather rocker tote bag.
The Pencil Skirt Band Tee Rocker Outfit
The mighty power of the faux black leather pencil skirt. O how I love you pencil skirt. Having grown up watching Grease it has always had a deep rooted place in my fashion style. It is a classic and will never die a fashion death or be out of style. I love this because it a casual way to rock the pencil skirt and in a edgy more rocker style. Initially the pencil skirt was kinda the bad girl skirt while all the good girls were wearing the flouncy poodle skirt the bad asses like Rizo and Cha-Cha were tearing it up fashion wise. It does not have to be faux leather especially if you are wearing it in summer. My legs felt like they were going to melt off into a puddle of a green wicked witch acidic waste who just had a bucket of water thrown on her. 10 minutes outside in Las Vegas shooting in the dead of summer with this thing on was uncomfortable. Try a denim one or any solid color that is breathable fabric and save the pleather for fall. Fashion tip of the day that you already probably knew but hey you never know.
The Suede Mini & Band Tee
The suede button front mini is another classic staple that has been around since the 60's with it being hot in 70's and with frequent comebacks in fashion on and off since then. It is a classic hippie boho staple that most boho rocker fashion gals will already have in their closet. You can do faux or real genuine suede and either buy vintage or new. Go hunt one down in used thrift stores or shop online and in the mall. We put our faux suede mini with a Guns & Roses tee shirt which we knotted in the front to give a more flattering look paired with some studded clogs which are by the way some of the most comfortable shoes ever. Add some turquoise accessories for a more boho splash to the look. We added one of my personal collection pieces of flat turquoise and white stones that I made. We also paired it with our black leather rocker clutch that is up on our site.
There you have it ladies all the many ways to kick fashion ass while rocker your personal favorite bands tees. Have a great fashionable summer and rock on..
Staying Fresh and New with New Years Day
Not all band T-shirts have to be some nostalgic throw back to yesteryear. Bands that your moms and dads got drunk and stoned seeing and possibly conceived you at really just shows you might be trying to be trendy. Wearing an Eagles Tee without even knowing a band members name? Lame and you may be called out on it.
Nothing says that you are in the now than staying somewhat current and fresh with new cutting edge and trending artists and bands. None other comes to mind than New Years Day out of Hollywood California.
Led by the fierce and soulful vocals of Ash Costello backed by the thunderous chops of guitarist Nikki Misery they have some great new band T shirt designs. It will keep you one up on the competition and keep people guessing. Nothing is more complimentary to your style and what you wear than imitation. You can check out their shop over at New Years Day Merch Aside from coming out with some ass kicking new music they are some down to earth good hard working people that do it for their passion and have gotten to tour with acts such as Marilyn Manson and Rammstein ! Sure you can find them at Hot Topic and the like but nothing helps out the artist like going direct to them.
