The Look: Date Night

Date night with your favourite frontman or lady is a great time to break out your inner glam rockstar. You don’t have to go full-on Ziggy Stardust but then again, every romance could do with a little bit of sparkle!

The key to achieving a perfect glam rock look that isn’t too over-the-top is to pair an in-your-face piece be it a sequin skirt, a metallic top or even a faux-fur jacket, with a more subdued piece like a basic t-shirt, a leather skirt or black skinnies all while looking like you’ve just grabbed things out of your closet and couldn’t care less what people think of you. The great thing about a glam rock outfit is that most of us have the basic pieces already so it’s a relatively easy (and budget-friendly) look to put together.

Metallic Tank

This satin tank with metallic shimmer is definitely not boring. A little too revealing for you? Layer it over a fitted white t-shirt for a slightly more demure look.

Available at H&M $34.99*

Spurlock Skirt

Can you get more rock 'n roll than leather? This wrap-style vegan leather skirt is stretchy yet structured to ensure that it highlights your curves without showing too much off.

Available at Aritzia $115*

Steve Madden D-Drop Earrings

When it comes to glam rock accessories, the "go big or go home" mantra really does ring true. These long drop earrings from Steve Madden (yes that's right, he's more than just shoes) help to elongated your neck, because who doesn't want to look like they have a longer neck?

Available at Hudson's Bay $30*

Stessy R Pumps

You could totally opt for a pair of basic black pumps here (and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that) OR you could grab something that packs a little bit more of a punch! These fuschia pumps feature a painted sole just in case you need another hit of colour.

Available at $90*

Stassie Mini Society Satchel

Classic quilts meet edgy details on this hot little number. Small enough to work as an evening back yet big enough to hold all your essentials.

Available at GUESS $78*
