RE: Road Trippin’ in Style

RE: Road Trippin’ in Style

Had enough of the cold? Don’t worry, there’s lots of excitement on the horizon, starting with RE:’s killer new Summer 2012 collection that’s already hit some of the major Woolies outlets. Featuring some of t-h-e hottest pieces in casual and denim wear, RE: will take your look to ultimate rock-star status! Think metallic jeans, reptile print skinnies, casual-cool printed tops and button down shirts…

The collection is focused around RE:s Here to There campaign; celebrating all things rock ‘n roll en-route to SA’s most popular annual music festival, Oppikoppi! If you’re a regular US fashion blog stalker, you know that back in April, the only thing everyone talked about was Coachella – A world famous music festival that showcases popular and legendary music acts, and of course, a place where all the stylish people meet and hang out! Well, we do have our very own “Coachella” with Oppikopi and RE: is making sure that local fashionistas look just as stylish as our US icons!

So what would one wear road tripping to a festival of music and fun? Here are my top pics from this awesome collection, take a look…

There is no better way to “shed your winter skin” than doing it reptile style! Snake printed pants are all the rage and a guaranteed way to give your outfit that Van Halen approved rocker signature!

Get the look with these RE: Reptile Print Jeans (R325). Need inspiration on how to wear these pants “outside the festival”? Look no further than stylish bloggers Fake Leather and Brooklyn Blonde.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, denim shirts are an absolute wardrobe essential! Whether for summer or winter, this little number will never go out of style! Denim shirts and denim jeans (with character like these ripped up ones from RE:) would make the perfect festival outfit! You can roll the sleeves up or down, button up or down the shirt and even wear it as a shirt or lightweight jacket. Can you see its versatility?

Need inspiration on how to wear denim on denim? We’re loving WestMoutFashionista‘s Canadian Tuxedo inspired look.

Mama Mia! I am loving metallic jeans right now and these RE: metallic skinny jeans (R450) come in the perfect colour options; gold or red! Shine on with style in these grungey inspired, serious rocker skinny jeans!

Need inspiration? Go for gold with inspiration from Girl in the Lens or how about red with Le Blog DeBetty’s Red Crush jeans?

If you’re road-tripping to the festival, there is no better way to do it in comfort and style! This RE: Raglan printed top (R140) has got to be one of my faves! Love it paired with these hot-pop-pink skinnies or simple denims!
