Style Advice of the Week

While the punk rock music genre may have died, the style is back for fall and winter. It is all about rebelling against the norm. Though punk in its purest form may have fizzled out years ago, Fashionistas are reviving it and putting their own feminine twist on this edgy trend. Since punk in 2013 is more about a fashion statement and less about a subculture, attitude is everything.

This Fashionista is a perfect example. She is the epitome of cool in a tartan skirt but her ensemble is a lot less outrageous than the typical punk staples. Instead of going for an overall punk theme, she instead simply adds small punk details to her outfit.

She starts with plaid, a classic punk print. As a skirt, however, she is able to make it more feminine and less in your face. This checked skirt from Topshop is the perfect way to add a little more punk to your wardrobe.

It’s easy to go over-the-top with studs, but this Fashionista gives another nod to punk with the subtle studs and chains on her bag. Simple accessories are a way to incorporate some hardware without being too overwhelming. This bag is the perfect way to toughen up any outfit.

This Fashionista completes her look with a ripped crop top, knee-high socks and heavy leather boots. By adding small punk details to your outfit, you can start to make your outfits more edgy, too.
