Getting that indie rock look is all the rage at the moment and can be easily done. We recommend pairing up some blue denim skinny jeans with some dark brown boots with a graphic t-shirt. Any colour jeans will work and you can choose from a range of different colours and shades of boots. At present suede boots are a good choice but remember to get protector and a good cleaner to keep those boots in pristine condition.
For the top half we would choose a large print graphic t-shirt that was bold and classy. At Urban Cove we have a range of different styles of graphic t-shirts from indie and rock brands. For a more rock style check out Dead Cities, Better Off Dead and False. If you want the indie look then Ivory Skies, Das Monk and Comune have some brilliant graphic designs that really stand out.
This style can even be worn on a night out and can be smarten up further with a fitted dark cardigan to really pull of a smart look with a cool laid back style.
This is a real winner and can even be a style worn by women as well for that rock chick look. Check out UrbanCove for more indie rock clothing.
