Between the wild partying, VIP access, mistresses and trashed hotel rooms, these ex-wives have taught us that being married to a rock star isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. The good news is that you don’t have to marry a rock star to look like rock royalty. Punk- and rock-inspired looks are hot this season and the women on Ex-Wives of Rock definitely have their own brand of tough-girl meets bombshell style.
Here’s how to get their bad-ass rock-and-roll-inspired look minus the “I do” and the messy divorce:
1. Biker Jacket
The leather biker jacket is to any woman who has ever loved a rock star, what the apron was to June Cleaver. Prove that he didn’t break your heart with a cheeky statement piece like this “Heart and Peace” biker jacket by Moschino (FarFetch).
2. Sexy wide-sleeved dress
Just the right mix of edge and sexy glamour, this pink draped T-shirt dress by SNOB (WeLikeFashion) is perfect for a night out with the girls.
3. Skull-and-cross necklace
Add instant cool points to any outfit with a heavy-metal-inspired skull-and-cross necklace like this one by AX Paris.
4. Skull-print blouse
A chic re-imagining of the classic concert tee, a skull printed chiffon blouse like this one by SheInside is edgy and sophisticated.
5. Leather detailed leggings
Leather leggings are a top trend for fall. Why not swap your usual jeggings (or go-to comfy pants) for a pair of leather detailed leggings like these ones by Romwe. Pair them with flat boots for day and a pair of sexy heels for night.
6. Gold cross ring
Punk-inspired, yet feminine and classy, this gold cross ring by London jewellery designer Zara Simon (Jades24) can be worn with anything — your favourite pair of denim or an elegant LBD.
7. Studded bustier
Lucky for these ex-wives, ’80s- and ’90s-inspired looks are back with a vengeance. Look like you’ve just been dancing in a Whitesnake video in a sexy studded bustier like this one by Topshop.
8. Stud detailed heels
Designed for the woman who wants to stay true to her roots but has swapped the crazy life of partying like a rock star for motherhood and heading up her own company, these Valentino studded slingback pumps are the perfect mix of edge and refined femininity.

9. Distressed skinny jeans
A rock and roll staple, a pair of distressed skinny jeans like these ones by Bardot give a nod to the heyday of heavy metal however, these offer a much more modern and flattering cut.
