STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Punk Princess

More and more, I’m seeing punk come back into style. With punk getting popular again, leather jackets are becoming increasingly prevalent. They are a great choice for this time of year. With the weather getting warmer, leather jackets are an edgy and fashionable choice for the current climate. Punk fashion is great because it is so versatile and you can really play around with it. A soft punk look might include Converse sneakers, a bomber jacket and some shredded jeans. Or you can go full throttle and throw on spiked jewelry, Dr. Martens, leather pants and a retro band shirt. It’s all up to you.

This Fashionista was on her way into town for a date when I literally ran after her because I wanted to photograph this outfit so badly. The first thing I thought when I saw her was that she was the perfect punk princess. Her outfit has so many aspects to it and really exemplifies the idea of the soft punk trend.

With the temperature finally rising, I see many students on my campus attempt to wear shorts and skirts. It’s so hard to know how to dress when the weather shifts around so much. This Fashionista was smart and kept her legs warm by wearing cute fishnet stockings under her denim shorts. She also layered her outfit, which kept her toasty and made it even more stylish. Her combination of a black crop top, a flannel and a leather jacket is so cute and punk. She had so many little details she added to her outfit, such as rings, a necklace and black leather boots, that it came together perfectly to create an amazing ensemble.
