Wear some arm bands, wallet chains and studded belts or belts with enormous buckles that can make a strong statement. The right footwear should seal the look for a rock star and this should include converse for grunge rockers and bathing apes or the air force boots for rappers and country rockers.

Style Up

Jewelry is one of the accessories enthusiastically sported by rock stars. Expensive and flashy jewelry is enough to complete the look of a rich rock star and it creates a distinctive style statement. Jewelry should preferably include all kinds of piercing. Hairstyle also plays an important part in getting the authentic rock star look. Gels and colors can be freely used to create a distinctive look. Country rockers should not keep the hair too short.

While sporting a hairstyle it is best to opt for a shorter style or a euro mullet or for one with layering. The make up should either be kept to a minimum or the ladies should opt for a complete theatrical over the top look. For ladies in the country rock scene denims and tailored shirts together with cowboy boots and hats and long hair will complete the look.
