Couple days ago, I de-coded Ranbir Kapoor’s look in upcoming movie Rockstar, as envisioned and designed by Aki Narula. Today I’ve taken the Rockstar look a step further. Drawing inspiration from Jordan (Ranbir’s character in the movie), here’s how you can get the Rockstar look. The best part is—both guys and gals can get steal from Rockstar, as long as they got the grunge attitude. 🙂
- To start with, you could wear a military-style jacket or army print/ camouflage shirts. Military jackets were very popular last autumn/winter, so if you’ve got one in your wardrobe, pull it out.
- If you can’t get your hands on a military jacket, look for army green jackets/ shirts. Another good option is a green or black waistcoat.
- While I don’t suggest pairing a green/ army shirt with olive cargo pants, you can wear your cargos with basic round-neck tee.
- If you’re the non-fearing types, dare to wear loose printed pyjamas or harem pants with your jacket or waistcoat.

In the mood to have some fun as a rockstar? You could personalise your clothes by adding your own touch to a jacket or waistcoat. Some suggestions:
Pin some fun badges or paste some stickers on the jacket. They could be of your favourite rock band, sports team or just have some fun quote. An easy alternative is a magnet (use another magnet to hold it in place or attach it with glue).

Add feathers and tassles: You could “borrow” tassles from your living room cushion or make your own tassle with wool or thread. Here’s a short and sweet video that shows you the easy way to make a tassle.
Add a totem: Your favourite keychain, quirky picture, photo or bookmark. It’s your personal stamp!

Draw: Sketch a peace sign on the jacket with a thick marker or felt pen. Or you could paint or create a picture on Photoshop and stick it on cardboard, then attach it to your jacket.
