Is it unfeminist to obsess over the aesthetic of the rockstar girlfriend? There’s a part of me that wants to say ‘yes,’ that you should be the rockstar yourself, but if you (like me) have no musical talent then why not be a groupie? Penny Lane did acquire quite a reputation for herself in the end, even if she used music to hide.
This aesthetic is designed for the nightlife, and for the young. The look of a rockstar’s girlfriend is messy, chaotic, and just a little bit unhinged. She sleeps all day and parties all night, making her wardrobe always club-ready.
Taylor Momsen, Kate Moss, and Devon Lee Carlson all incorporate this look well. And thankfully, for my feminist nature, one of them is actually a rockstar. But if the everyday woman wants to adapt to this style, what does she wear? It might not be office appropriate, but the list is below…
Leather pants or mini skirts
