I find that if I am not running to events or heading to a work dinner, my daily go-to outfit for running errands or hanging with friends is pretty casual with some sort of fun twist. Usually it consists of jeans, a soft tee, booties and my favorite leather jacket, at least while it’s still leather jacket weather. Right now I am loving cropped denim and when it comes to the type of tee I wear, it can range anywhere from a super plain white v-neck to something a bit more preppy like a striped crew neck or I might go in the complete opposite direction and rock a vintage music t-shirt! They can be hard to come by, so if you find a good one, make sure to snag it! (Think of scooping up this muscle tee next!)

In today’s post, I wanted to show you how I styled this Def Leppard tee because let’s be honest, it’s pretty out there, at least compared to some others I’ve seen. The design is bold and and bright, which might make it feel like it could be hard to pull off if you just saw it by itself and not within an outfit.
My take on styling it was to make everything else fairly muted and let the shirt be the “hero piece” or focal point. I knew I wanted to channel more of a rocker vibe, so I gave my hair loose waves, tousled it a bit, and accessorized with oversized sunnies and pointy toed booties for a bit of edge.
I’d love to know how you would style a similar shirt and what issues (if any) you might come up against when trying to work one of these tees into an outfit. I think another really cute way to wear a rocker shirt would be to dress it up a bit with heels and a super structured blazer. Let me know your thoughts on this look so make sure to leave me a comment below!
Chloë Sevigny is definitely rocking her vintage rocker tee…
I love how these girls styled their vintage tees.
