I found it pretty challenging to put together a look based on Rogue. In both the movies and comics her outfits are more “superhero-y” than some of the other female heroes I’ve featured. I focused on creating an edgy look with pops of Rogue’s usual yellows and greens.
Lambskin Cycle Jacket, $124.94
Even her name is badass, so Rogue would definitely done this super cool leather jacket.
Fingerless Motorcycle Gloves, $17.99
These gloves are actually practical (if you have a motorcycle), but for those of us who don’t, I suggest pairing them with a simpler outfit, to avoid looking too tacky.
Classic Trench in Black, $198
What a classy piece! It is certainly the easiest Rogue-inspired item to add to your wardrobe. It’s a simple way to add a touch of Rogue’s comic book look ( recall her telltale long, black jacket)
Ruched Knee High Boot in Black, $33.50
I don’t really suspect that Rogue would wear heels when she’s crime fighting, but that doesn’t mean you can’t.
Jenna Jeans in Black, $23.60
These jeans are perfectly edgy without going over the top. I think how they are styled here, with neutral heels and classic skirt, really does them justice.
Double Face Eyelash Fringe Scarf in Green, $88
I’ve added this scarf in an effort to bring in some of Rogue’s bright green tones.
Justin Rock n’ Roller Belt in Brown, $34
I love how versatile this belt is. It looks great on Rogue when she’s wearing her green and yellow body suit, but I think it’d look just as good with a button down and jeans.
DIANE VON FURSTENBERG Isadora silk-blend lamé gown, $487.50
If Rogue were ever convinced to go to a fancy gala, I suspect she’d chose this golden gown. The piece is gorgeous thanks to the shimmery fabric and dones a very understated, but classy silhouette.
Full Finish Lipstick in “No Competition” Color, $18
I don’t envision Rogue with bright red lips or over the top makeup. I think she’d appreciate this sophisticated pink.
