{inspired by} A Rocker Outfit [The Police]

Let's do something a little different today: Everyone loves music, right? And a lot of people use musicians as the inspiration for their outfits. My friends know that I am not a new/popular music kind of girl. I prefer Classic Rock and the oldies when I want to get my spirits up. I turn to bands like The Eagles, Beatles, James Taylor or Billy Joel and if I'm in the mood for "new" music, John Mayer (and more recently Manifesto - a British band that I was introduced to via a Harry Potter actor who is in the band.) To switch things up, I decided to create a look inspired by The Police!

The Police were one of the most popular groups in the 70s and 80s and their songs are still played on most radio stations. You would likely find at least one of them in a leather jacket or a blazer, and they loved their jeans! As for shoes, they were fans of boots and sneakers. A pretty easy look to recreate because it has a certain ease about it. (Don't worry, we won't go totally 80's with over-sized blazers as they did.)  I created a look with items from BooHoo.com!

Leather Jacket, White Tank Top, Skinny Jeans, Chelsea Boot, Pearl & Chain Necklace, and Round Frame Sunglasses

  2. How do you not love the police? And denim with a sleek leather jacket is simply timeless.
