USIC FESTIVALS are known for having
a non-dress code when it comes to rock glamour!fans while black and silver were, as always, the head bangers
If you think about it, where else would you be
considered wisely fashionable wearing a ripped Salsa
T-shirt, a white-and-blue Dolce & Gabbana wristband along with
fake jewellery and a pair of smart Puma sneakers?
Rock in Rio was no exception to this non-discriminating
fashion environment, during its six days of music saturnalia. Gloss,
glitter and noisy colour mixtures were a must among pop culture
Fashion diversification seemed to be the
imperative statement. But before I start reporting on what's in
and definitely out, please let me just announce that, contrary to
a lot of fashion gurus, men are unquestionably taking fashion to
another level and breaking barriers with traditional bad dressing
Something for the head please
HEADWEAR was big. Bandannas were
seen everywherealthough some tried the look with a T-shirt.
They are meant to be worn on the chest, not the head.
Hats are not an easy item to choose, I agree,
so dedicate some time shopping around. We spotted a huge variety
at Rock in Rio, going from your regular Sports cap to modern hand
woven hats or Cristina Aguilera's French beret.
Glam, gloss and glittery
FAKE JEWELLERY (or just plain fewel
as the cool like to call it) has climbed popularity barometers
this year. Not only do cool shoppers buy and wear it, they still
demand to be looked at with respect!
If you want to join these happy shopping dictators,
keep in mind that long sparkly earrings are what you should look
for when wearing anything Puma.
Along with glamour earrings, Black Eyed Peas'
Fergie demonstrated that any glittery silver fewel is acceptable
nowadays, especially on stage.
Going from your regular necklaces to heavy chain
bracelets, you can't go wrong with silver imitation because it just
goes with everything you might put on (well, almost everything).
However, some people tend to suffer allergic effects
when not wearing the real thing, but do not attempt to substitute
fake jewellery by non-allergic coloured plastic fare. This trend
disappears as fast as you can say corny!
Besides being considered a dreadful material to
wear, it's also a trend from summer 2003 so the chances are that
you'll be considered a senseless fool dragged from the past.
