Playing The Part Of A “Smart Casual Rocker”

The term “smart casual rocker” came up in my site reporting today, and I instantly loved the term. Does the image of a mix of combat-inspired boots and suits appeal to you? It does to me. Let’s discuss.

I’m hybridizing a suit with traditional “rocker” pieces here; the combination of both can give you an edge because of the leather, but keeps things reined into a respectable distance from overboard with the skinny trim fitting slacks and a sleek tie.

For a look allowing for more personal fun and flair, try a patterned button up oxford skirt in a dark shade (perhaps a navy), match up your socks with your shirt and cuff your slacks. If you’re opting for this look, don’t add accessories that will make yourself appear too busy or wear a jacket with too many zippers and additions. Keep shapes streamlined, yet healthy with texture and pattern.
