What to Wear Wednesday: Punk Revisited

August 29th, 2013 by Trademark Image Consulting

It’s been happening a lot lately. Walking down the street I’ll spot a young woman in heather grey Tshirt knits, a slouchy black knit hat, big combat boots and a plaid shirt around her waist and all of a sudden I have a brain blip and can’t figure out what year it is. I swear, it’s not my aging brain (is it?) it’s just that the major trend towards the 1990’s/grunge/punk movement this Fall is so darned literal. At least when it comes to the younger set. But I mean, hey, this is their first time wearing it, right? And even though we can all look back and realize that the stringy haired, flannel shirt situations weren’t doing us any favours – it was FUN (in a dark and moody way)!

But, as with any trend you’ve already loved to death in your youth – can you revisit Punk & Grunge style?

Tread lightly on this trend or you’ll easily fall right back to the 90s, searching for your Nirvana cassette to play in your Sony walkman….

This time around give the trend a playful and subtle nod by using the details that defined the Punk & Grunge movements in new ways:

Tread carefully, but with a few strategic upgrades you just might be able to pull of Punk again!

My real ‘Rock ‘n Roll Babes’ can totally bring their personality into the work environment too, by using details on otherwise professional silhouettes to pump up the volume.
