Girl Punk Style

Girl Punk StyleHave you ever seen I Love the '80's on VH1? WORD!
Then you will have a grasp of one of the trends for Spring.
I have been telling you about the '80's flashback trends- but it isn't all hyper-brights and high-top Reeboks..It is also HARD CORE PUNK - YEAH!..?? Okay - maybe not so hard core.
Maybe more Candy Coated Punk. Think Avril Lavigne. Having lived through the 2nd round of the Punk Scene in New York City and London in the EIGHTIES- I think she is a "wanna- be punker"- let's call her a "punkster." I mean that in a good way. The total grunge, rebel punk is not what this trend is about. It is a mix of Toni Basil, "Like a Virgin" era Madonna, The Ramones, The Waitresses and the Go-Go's. NOT The Sex Pistols. No tattoos and safety- pin piercings- please.
Sooo, I'll give you some ideas.
1. Hot Pink & Bright Yellow
2. Retro Punk Graphic tees
3. Striped and colorful smock tops.
4. Bright leggings worn with short skirts.
5. Layering to create your own aesthetic. Layer colors, textures and lengths.
6. Layering necklaces. Yes- Madonna did actually set trends way back when.
7. Flat shoes and Converse low rise sneakers - the ones with white top caps.
8. Colored or overdyed jeans- skinny ones ( wear them now- you won't touch them afer you are 26.)
9. Patches and logo jackets.
10. Denim skirts.

Be on the look out for beginnings of Retro Goth.

I am sorry to tell all you young things- that it is true ...what goes around comes around. Your Mother did wear it before you... but a trend never comes back the same way. Make any new trend your own!
