How to Dress Glam Punk

‘Punk' doesn't mean Mohawks and safety pins. It's about not conforming.

-Patrick Stump

Most punk girls you meet are probably more fashion conscious than any other girl. This is because Every clothing piece represents some sort of unique style that they accumulated through rare sellers, or original ideas they think are pretty and interesting. Not every punk fashionista needs to flip the bird and do heroine in the bathroom of a dive bar. It’s all about the attitude of sticking it to the norm and doing it confidently.

Everything is personal, a reflection of who they are as a person and what they like or dislike about fashion. One piece can be anti-fashion, another a political statement, and simply just a piece of clothing they fancy. You don’t have to listen to hardcore punk music to dress the style, you just have to be yourself and not worry about people judging you when you go against the grain. Here are some basic outfit ideas for those of us who want to make a statement once in a while, but look glamorous while doing so.

Punk fashion is fascinating and resonates in and out of high fashion from time to time as it takes statements against the followers and questions common beauty standards.

Just as any other style, punk has evolved to include modern fashions.

Questioning anything and everything, to me, is punk rock.

Crazy sunglasses are a great way to show a punk attitude. It can be anything from stylish John Lennon style to neon green rounded shades. As long as you wear it with boldness, it will have people wondering who you are.

Excellent piece of fashion to cut apart band t’s, fun logos, crazy shirts and make them personalized to your style. You can shred the back, make it a muscle tee or leave it as you bought it. Either way it’s a great statement.

To me, punk is about being an individual and going against the grain and standing up and saying ‘This is who I am'.

Punk is founded in obnoxiously sewn jackets in denim, leather and any other style you can muster up. Taking a current fashion and adding your own special touch to it is a great way to layer your outfit. Jackets are mysterious and look fabulous when personalized….especially leather..

I don't think punk ever really dies, because punk rock attitude can never die.

Add some bohemian twist to your punk wardrobe. The hippy style  combined with classic rocker attire speaks free spirit and youth.

Part of the punk attitude was that you should project your music through your whole body… show your personality as much as possible.

There is nothing that pisses the masses off more than showing some skin. Punk attitude means not being afraid to be who you are. So showing more of yourself is a bold choice that will definitely make you a fashion statement.

Combine form fitting, loose fitting and mixing together different fabrics is a great way to show punk. Take a classic band tee and combine it with a classy skirt, or take some old boots and pair them with a pretty summer dress. Punk all the way, my friends.

Be a hot mess.

Punks are hot messes. Let’s face it. The chaos meets order in the mix and match style. Do your makeup, but leave your hair air dried and pair it with some baggy shirts and tight pants. The effortless style of punk and the careless attitude is hot as hell.

Punk is not really a style of music. It was more like a state of mind.

A great punk style is the wear something flashy and outrageous. Get some leopard prints leggings and red boots, or metallic blue pants and pink converse. Dye your hair a beautiful color and where a brightly colored shirt and shoes. Many people are very conservative with pants and shoes, so play those up to go against the norm. You can always look at the psychobilly style if you want to go harder!
