Style Spotlight | Rocky Barnes, ultimate beach girl
Rocky Barnes knows her way around a fashion show frow, sends followers into frenzied attempts to replicate any outfit she sports, and radiates glamour in every Instagram flick or blog meditation. Her true passion, however, lies in making waves across the globe.
If you haven’t heard the name – let’s enlighten you… Rocky is a girl with a severe case of wanderlust, a glorious sense of humour, and an affinity for the sun. We follow her for lessons in style and a digital vacay upon every scroll.
Cue some of the many reasons why Rocky has captivated the digital world…
1. She’s always on the go, and is currently touring canyons in Arizona
Rocky’s no stranger to a life well travelled. Her latest venture? The desert plains of Arizona. We’re living through her Insta stories as per usual, and swooning over the burnt-orange hues awash her grid. With @revolve clothing, her #revolvearoundtheworld movements are ones to always watch.
2. We’re infatuated with Rocky’s recent H&M collaboration
Colour blocking and statement making are the pillars of Rocky’s latest clothing collab with fashion mecca H&M. Their latest ‘Studio Collection’ has been styled to perfection on Rocky in myriad Insta uploads. Here, she stuns in racy shades of red.
3. She’s the queen of the bikini pic
We don’t lie. Rocky rocks a bikini snap like nobody else. It feels like summer is on constant rotation when paying her Insta a regimented visit. We’re envious of that never-ending beach-going, and need this white two-piece in our wardrobe stat.
4. Rocky dubs herself a ‘Gypsetter’
Basically, Rocky’s blog pays homage to the notion of a ‘gypsetter’. She explains it as: “fusing the ease and carefree lifestyle of a gypsy with the sophistication of the jet-setter. They’re the “artists, surfers, designers and bon vivants who live and work around the globe…”Add it to the vocab.
5. She hails from Southern California
While she rarely sticks to the one continent now, Rocky grew up in Southern Cali. It makes sense. She’s inseparable from shorelines, and can always be seen clad with sunglasses and flowy frocks. A vision of the California Girl, and the bona fide beach lover.
