Zippers, Zippers Everywhere: 4 Takes On The Rock-Chic Look

Zippers are back in action. Wherever you look, these metal fasteners are zipping something up or down, and reflecting on the rock look that has inspired every one of us at some point in time. I am even digging the purposeless zippers that show off metal like it’s a diamond in the rough. I love this look and therefore couldn’t wait to feature zippers on all kinds of fashion.

This first showcase is extremely sexy. This tight, rear-accentuating jean is a must have. The straight style of the jean gives off a sophisticated vibe, while the multiple zippers in front add texture and interest.

These jeans can be glammed up with a pair of patent leather pumps and a sexy top, or they can be laid back by matching with a simple tee and pair of boots. However you decide to show off this pant, you are bound to feel stunning in them.

Pointy-toe pumps are so in, and can there be anything sexier? This Enzo Angiolini red pump is to die for.

The tall back that rides high on the heel gives it the ultimate flair without overdoing it. The fake zipper accent on the back of the extended heel shows off the style and gives the plain shoe a little more excitement. Turn a solid-colored cocktail dress into a head-turning look when paired with this shoe.

Want an outfit that will tease? Then, as usual, Bebe has the appropriate dress for that. Their solid black, curve-hugging, round neck mini dress is hot! I love how the top is covered but instead allows for the right amount of leg flaunting.

It's not Bebe's typical over-the-top, too sexy dress that many of us are forced to shy away from since we are no longer 18 years old. The two metal zippers up front give it an ultra-flirty factor and leave almost everything to the imagination (the way it should be…).

I love purple for the fall and winter. It’s one of the jewel tones that looks beautiful on most skin tones. Perhaps because it has long been the color of royalty, it also seems to bestow radiance and elegance. Especially paired with sophisticated straight designs, whether it be a pencil skirt or a wide leg pant.
