Get ready to be Punk’d this season…

OK, I’ll soon be moving onto SS14 trends (I know, it’s not even Halloween), but New York has already hailed Fashion Week and London was right behind!

However, we still have plenty of time to get to grips with one of AW13’s hottest trends and one that I have been excited about for months…the comeback of Punk.

Forget what you thought you knew about the Vivienne Westwood anti-materialistic punk scene of the 70s and the ripped jeans, leather-inspired looks of the 80s street punk renaissance. 2013 is all about the new age punk with a high-end fashion twist.

Using the prevailing fabric of the season this new punk trend fuses PU trims and panels with luxe materials for a confident clash of textures. It’s dark, mysterious and deliriously decadent and available on the high street as we speak!

From PU panelled skinny trousers to PU sleeves on military jackets, this trend is made for autumn/winter. As the days grow shorter and the dark nights draw in get excited about unleashing your new-found love of understated chic with an edgy appeal to your friends, to strangers on a night out and with just about every confident fashion step you take.

Live it. Breathe it. Embrace the punk within!

To give you a head start here’s some tasty little treats that I’m loving right now on the high street.

Topshop Punk

As you can see, Topshop have gone for the luxurious leather-inspired look with metal studs, a dark colour palette and infinite fashion opportunities.

Ark Punk

Ark are renowned for their fun and flirty take on new trends and are true to form with their cheeky tartan-inspired playsuits, dresses and laid back tees…Ramones style.

New Look Punk

New Look have taken a slightly different approach to the Punk trend and have splashed their skirts and dresses with plenty of colour. However, the studded jewellery and skull motif accessories are simply a must!

Alexander Mcqueen Punk

Just to tease all you fashionistas out there I have included some punk-inspired pieces from Alexander McQueen. Let’s face it, he’s completely out of our price range (necklace is over £200), but I adore his skull adorned peep toe heels!
