Trend of the Week: Punk

Summer has flown by and it's already time to start talking Autumn/Winter trends. I'm super excited about next season- yes, I will miss prancing around in crop tops and jelly shoes but from what I've seen, next season is going to have many trends that are right up my street. Today we're talking punk- try listening to the Sex Pistols while reading this post to get you in the mood.

A checked skirt is a staple piece for working the punk trend. This one is slightly different from the average red and black checks with yellow and green thrown in instead. Plus the length is interesting and will work especially well for colder days. 
Styling tips: try pairing this with a white button-down shirt and a fitted biker jacket, then add some chunky black boots.

Perfectly fitting in with the trend, these boots are called 'Puck Chelsea Boots' as they follow they basic principal of Chelsea boots, just toughened up. You even have a choice of them in black or white.
Styling tips: they will pretty much go with everything but try with some high-waisted baggy jeans, maybe with some distressed detailing, a graphic print t-shirt and a bowler hat.
Due to the mesh sleeves and cut-out details, this crop top would work really well for this trend. Obviously if it's autumn it's going to be colder so use it as a layering piece.
Styling tips: start with some high-waisted leggings, add some boyish brogues and a cocoon coat (such as the ones seen on the Chloé catwalk). You can always add a tartan scarf if it's chilly.

Finally, a more feminine take on punk. The cutout sides in this dress add an interesting punk-esque look, perfect for a night out.
Styling tips: team this skater dress with some sky high chunky heels such as a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Litas, then layer on the studded jewellery and a dark red lip. 

Is punk a trend you'll be wearing this Autumn/Winter?
