Looking VaVaVoom!

Nothing says rocker chick more than leather; leather pants, leather motorcycle jackets, leather boots, leather skirts, leather shorts, leather vests, leather tops and even leather dresses. According to the Urban Dictionary, a rocker chick is someone who lives or loves the rocker lifestyle. They are the girls whom you would find at heavy metal concerts. They are not groupies, but tend to be attracted to rock guitarists with long hair. Rocker chicks exude an air of confidence and freedomprobably because they know they look good in their leathers and are not afraid to express themselves. That could be why many of us ordinary folks consider rocker chicks to be cool. It used to be that such leather ensembles were mostly worn by these rocker chicks, but thanks to fashion designers like Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, Versace, Christian Dior, Celine, Derek Lam, etc. and celebrities like Halle Berry, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba, Kristen Stewart, Eva Longoria, etc., leather dresses are now considered essential attire for ladies who want to look good.
