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?!?
