The 90's rewind is well and truly here and the whole nostalgia factor is definitely part of its come back. Punk and grunge was big when I was born and I can remember the 90's fashion vaguely from when I was little. I can remember when I was younger, I had tartan skirts and felt like a total punk and really loved the whole style. While I would never go hard core, no platform boots or facial piercings here, I do love fashion with an edge and punk really sums that up.
|Tartan- The ultimate punk pattern|
Converses- Worldwide recognized symbol of rebellion
Leather boots- Leather jacket, well, leather anything suits the punk trend
Studs- Edgy fashion which is well and truly punk
Plaid shirts, tartan skirts, leather jackets and rock band t-shirts are just a handful of what punk style is to me. And while high street stores have stocked up with brand new clothes that follow the punk style, the unique part of this trend is that you can buy the authentic look at a vintage store. So hit your local thrift shop/charity shop to find the real deal.

Top: New Look
Skirt: A hand-me-down
Probably not a look that you could get away with in the office, this trend is definitely for casual wear. In fact, this would be great for any late festivals or concerts as punk is a style based around music. Depending on how you style the look, punk clothing can quite comfy. Ok, so a studded leather jacket might not be the comfiest, but tartan/striped leggings and a baggy rock band t-shirt is probably the most laid back outfit I can think of.
Now, this trend will not be everyone's cup of tea. It is very edgy and takes a real hard-core punk to dress head-to-toe in this trend. But I'm a fan of the grunge look and, while I would never go hard core, no platform boots or facial piercings here, I do love fashion with an edge and punk really sums that up.
What do you think? Is it great that we are bringing back 90's fashion or should we have left punk in the past?
