Talk of the New Runaways Movie Has Us Obsessing All Things Joan Jett...

If you're anything like us, you're dusting off your favorite motorcycle jacket, painted-on black jeans, and elegantly studded belts in anticipation of the upcoming Runaways movie. Once we caught wind of this rock biopic, starring rebellious Twilight nymph Kristen Stewart as the always-fashionable Joan Jett and a decidedly grown up Dakota Fanning as sassy front-woman Cherie Currie, we couldn't help but think: Damn, did Jett have some great style! Her heavy-metal more-is-more take on fashion just feels very of the moment right now. Inspired by the "I Love Rock n' Roll" singer's signature androgynous-cool look, we scoured some of our favorite shops to help you get this powerhouse look down pat. We promise, you won't hate yourself for loving this look, but don't be surprised if it gives you a bad reputation.
