Ashley Tisdale’s Glam Rock Style

Ashley Tisdale

I’ve never watched the High School Musical series. What I can tell, though, is that Ashley Tisdale’s Disney days may be coming to a close. She’s released an album, which I have to say I like! I really like “Crank It Up,” which has a sick beat.

Ashley Tisdale’s style is pretty edgy; I often see pictures of her wearing combat boots or something with studs. I really like how, in this look, she takes a really laid-back and casual combination (leather jacket, printed tee, hoodie, and ripped jeans) and gives it a touch of sleek with black peep-toe booties. Awesome!

As we all begin putting our peacoats and bomber jackets back in the closet until next year (yes!), a hoodie under a jacket is perfect for this time of year. It may be beautiful during the day right now but at night time temperatures drop really quickly and you can freeze your bum off in a minute. Hence, layers are key.

P.S. Anybody else love Ashley Tisdale as a brunette?

Ahead of the trends: Ashley Olsen

Ashley Olsen

Ashley Olsen appears to always a step ahead of the trends. This photo was taken in 2006, while the dress and leather jacket combo that she’s wearing in the photo didn’t go big until late last year.

Motorcycle Jacket ($249, Bebe)

Motorcycle Jacket ($249, Bebe)

Leather is a great way to dress down and add some edge to more formal, feminine pieces . It’s certainly practical for spring and early summer, when nighttime is still a bit chilly and you need to wear a little something over a dress. The jacket I’ve chosen mimics the length Ashley’s cropped jacket, which is what I think keeps the look from crossing over to the grunge side. I, personally, wouldn’t pay much less for a leather jacket. This is an investment piece that will last you through several seasons, without showing wear and tear like cheaper alternatives would.

Babydoll Dress ($14.50, Forever 21)

Babydoll Dress ($14.50, Forever 21)

At only $14.50, this babydoll dress is a pretty fab find. Its simplicity makes it a blank canvas that screams to be accessorized. A gold bangle and ring, like Ashley is wearing, go really well with white. I’ve picked two pretty ornate rings, but, again, the simplicity of the dress leaves room for endless possibilities.

The bangle set ($9, Claire’s) I chose includes a couple of wood ones, which I think work really well with this color palette. The variety of textures in the jewelry provide a nice contrast against the white linen of the dress. With the bracelets and rings, I’d say the necklace is not a necessity. But if it is for you, necklaces made of white shells–perfect for a summer look–are really easy to find, often for under $5. Be sure to pick one up from a boardwalk gift shop next time you find yourself at the beach!
