Get The Look: Pretty In Punk

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-Pretty-In-Punk

It’s not a shocker that punk / grunge has totally made a revival. I dare you to walk out your door without spotting someone sporting some Doc Martens with a flannel tied around their waist. Seriously. Good luck with that.

I for one, am thrilled. Some would say that the trends of the late 80s / early 90s were horrendous… I would disagree. This was probably my FAVORITE  time for fashion. I may have been a kid, but I knew a good thing when I saw one. Babydoll dresses topped off with a flannel were my jam. I lived in my Doc Martins and didn’t leave the house without my mini-backpack… probably filled with pogs.

Fast forward 20 years later and not much has changed. This is still one of my favorite looks. I say, go for the grunge… just polish it up a bit. Think crop tops and fitted skirts or plaid leggings… and don’t forget to accessorize!

+ [ FXXI ] Nirvana Crop Top $15.80 – Crop tops + high waisted skirts = a match made in heaven.

+ [ Nasty Gal ] High Holidays Plaid Skirt $52 – A skin tight skirt will sex up this tomboy vibe.

+ [ Dr. Martens ] White Dr. Martens $120 – Loving white boots for winter.

+ [ Nasty Gal ] Stevie Faux Shearling Mini Backpack $68 – This backpack is so ridiculous. I need it in my life ASAP!!!

+ [ Nasty Gal ] Spiked Up Ring Set $18 – Hands down… rings are my fav accessory.

+ [ Amoeba Music ] Various Patches $3-5 – Never mind the bollocks. I collect patches of my fav bands and add them to everything!!! Purses, jackets, you name it.

Soooo… are you digging this revival as much as I am or do you wish punk was dead?!?

It seriously is the most wonderful time of the year. The weather’s getting chilly, everyone is getting in the holiday spirit, and I can watch tacky made for TV Christmas movies all month long :) Another plus…? Winter is my favorite season for fashion! Sweaters, boots, beanies… ugh, I’m in heaven.

I may like pretty things, but I’m a TOTAL tomboy at heart ( always have been, always will be… sry )!! That being said, I’m still completely obsessed with fashion ( obvi ) and love finding looks that allow me to mix and match my tomboy favs with some girlie touches.

I love this look because A) it’s cute, B) it’s comfy, and C) it basically works for any and every occasion. Lunch with your bestie babes ✓, a night to forget at your fav dive bar ✓, Blog-Doo book club ✓, Sunday din with the fam ✓… you get the point.

My favorite leather jacket and vintage flannel are absolute staples ( I live in them ). This look can easily go downhill quick. Yep, down that hill and straight on to Frumpville USA, but pairing them with a skinny mini, a cute pair of ankle boots, and a girlie ‘do totally femmes it up. If you’re going to rock the tomboy look think Tomboy Chic… not twinning with your boyfriend. Thx.

What to Wear Wednesdays: Come as you are.

Flannel is absolutely one of my favorite trends of 2012! It’s comfy and cute with a Seattle grunge edge that totally reminds me of my youth! I’m completely mad about 90’s fashion and thrilled that it has made its reprise. My favorite way to wear flannel is over a vintage band tee & paired with some ripped black tights and boots. I feel there is a flannel for every occasion! Above are some of my favorite flannel fashions…
