#1 Wear a tough timepiece

Nothing says tough more than a rugged watch – and the Tudor Fastrider Black Shield is right up there with the best of them. Inspired by the new Ducati XDiavel motorbike, this 42mm ceramic-cased chronograph combines great strength with inimitable style…as you do. From Rolex and Tudor boutiques, and selected fine watch stores.

#3 Spike your money

Okay, so a spiked bag or a wallet is a bit much. But a coin purse? Now that’s totally doable, particularly if it’s this ultra covetable Christian Louboutin Panettone piece. Did we mention it’s lined in the brand’s signature racy scarlet? From Saks Fifth Avenue.

#4 Break out the booties

Heels may be empowering, but booties can be equally so (something that harks back to the days when we were part of uniformed groups?) – not to mention more comfortable. These Isa Tapia Hardy Studded ones marry elegance and classic style with a touch of defiance in the form of a chunky mirrored heel with studs. From Shopbop.

Everyone loves a little rawk sometimes. Yes, even the most mousy or kawaii of us because, well, we are women, hear us roar! But turning up at the office one day dressed like a member of Kiss would be very strange. (Not to mention you’ll probably find it hard to be taken seriously if your metal cuffs clink every time you gesticulate or you accidentally sit on your spiked leather jacket.)

Still, there’s nothing like a bit of rock chic to make one feel empowered and ready to take on the world. So here are five ways to go about connecting with your inner metal maiden without attracting the attention of others – it’ll just be our little secret.
