Women's Punk Clothing
The punk style emerged in the 1970s as an attitude-infused anti-fashion movement. The "true" punk persists today as such. The punk style does not have many gender rules. Most things worn by punk women can be worn by punk men, especially black jeans, which are usually tight.
Recently, bondage pants have come into style. These are the pants with straps and chains dangling between the backs of the legs. Plaid is very punk as well, in zippered pants and skirts, as well as suspenders. Black is a near-necessary color for a punk outfit, but not the only one: punk is not goth. The main difference here is that punk often uses black as a backdrop to accentuate a loud dash of bright color, rather than giving black center stage.
Punk isn't goth, nor is it emo. Emo is the best name to use for the Victorian-influenced, pretty, frilly punk now popularized. Punk is more daring, more shocking, and more dangerous than emo.
Punk is a subculture. It is a movement that appeared in the mid-'70s and it was very popular for about a decade. Even today, there are marks of it all around. It focuses on punk rock music but it also incorporates a large variety of ideologies and different forms of expression. Here, one cannot forget to mention the arts, movies, music, etc. This subculture promotes the freedom of the individual.
And there is no better punk design shop than Punk Design.
An outfit is not complete if you do not add accessories. Choose at least a few eye-catching accessories, as they tend to make '80s punk style stand out from similar edgy trends. Go with leg warmers, colorful necklaces, bangle bracelets, dangling earrings, or other piercing jewelry. Belts are another '80s punk accessory that helped define the fashion genre, particularly leather belts with studs or spikes. Or, fingerless or full-fingered wrist-length leather gloves. You can add to your look colorful fishnet stockings, or transform old pairs by wearing them as elbow-length, fingerless gloves.
Skinny Jeans and comfort go hand in hand with punk fashion. Whether they’re baggy or tight, they’re a definite must-have, especially when you layer on a few patches or spikes.
Vests may not seem very punk rock before they've seen the hands of the punk him or herself, but, they're definitely a staple. If you aren't a fan of a plain vest, get some fabric paint and unleash your inner creativity, sew on some patches, or use some spikes to roughen up the look.
Spikes, studs, anything metal that can be easily attached to the outfit are a definite staple in punk fashion. While they may seem a little abrasive at first, they create interest in most punk accessories.
Chains are extremely useful with punk fashion, they can be worn as belts, dangling at your hip, or can be used as jewelry. They help to once again create a rough edge to the punk rock outfit.
Jewelry may seem overrated for punks, but, more often than not you're going to see them wearing leather or spiked wrist cuffs, plugs in their ears, body jewelry, skull necklaces, or an array of other jewelry accessories that help to create a cohesive look.
Sporting band T-shirts is key to punks, especially when they're supporting their favorite bands. While they may not always wear them true to their nature and may create something a little more DIY from their band T-shirts, they're a major component of punk fashion.
Skirts, especially for the female punks, are a definite staple for punk rock culture. Whether they're short or tight, there are several different shapes of edgy skirts to flatter just about any body type out there. Remember, anything can be made to have that punk rock edge to it, don't shy away from a skirt because it doesn't first scream "punk", and make it that way.
Wristbands, whether they be thin strips or thick chunky wrist bands are a bold fashion statement for punks. They can either be useful such as a thick leather strapped watch or more decorative like a spiked wristband. They are an eye-catching accessory commonly found worn by lovers of punk rock.
Fishnets are a great staple punk rock clothing item and are oftentimes seen at live shows because they promote staying cool.
