Fall Trend: Punk

As we all know all good fashion trends recycle. First introduced in the 1970's made popular by designers like Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren the styles of metal hardware, recycled materials, DIY's and graphic images were commonly known as Punk. 

More recently seen in Vogue, an updated punk look has been used in styling with the layers of tartan print, black and white and torn clothing. As well as on the runway for Fall 2013 punk makeup and hairstyles were popular to see to minimize the appearance of lady like collections.

The Met has also taken on the trend of punk showcasing the exhibit this summer the "London Look" versus the "New York Look" when it came to punk in the 1970's.

To take on this falls trends without fully committing yourself to punk start with subtle, versatile pieces. 
1. The first must have is a leather jacket like this Topshop Shrunken Biker Jacket . Its a perfect piece to put on top of a flowy dress or play punk with some fitted skinnies, converses and a mixed fabric top.

2. A simple pencil skirt can become less office appropriate worn with a distressed tee like Distressed DJ Heroin Tee or pair a tartan print top like Topshop Tartan Tee with an aline skirt and ankle boots.

3. Mix things up and layer a lady like sheer blouse with a printed mini like Zara Checkered Mini Skirt or pair it with the Topshop Leather Denim Mix Kilt for a twist of the black classic skirt.

4. Play it safe by layering punk inspired jewellery with any outfit you put together, whether you put them with leather and plaid or accessorize your favourite t shirt dress and flats. Look for heavy hardware and mismatched pieces like House of Harlow 1960 Earrings and Adia Kibur Mix Metal Necklace or ones that resemble diy projects or make your own jewelry with safety pins, bolts and studs.
