punkchicRock the Trend: Punk Chic

Author: Sasha

Remember Joan Jett and the Blackhearts “I Love Rock ‘N Roll”?  Most of us tried to mimic it a bit at one point or another in our lives.  Well, the look is back with an added touch of chic.  The Punk Chic, or Subtle Punk, look is back in full effect for Fall this year.  This trend is defined by Goth shades and carefully placed metal details on classic pieces for a subtle yet punk effect.  If you want to rock this trend, read on to find out more.     Tops.    For this trend, go for tops made out of luxurious fabrics with fabulous detailing.  A silk vest in moody mauve with decorative metal detailing all-over will give you a subtle, punk, edgy look and make passersby notice your outfit.  Look for detailing that is small in size and grand in coverage of the pieces.  Metal details that are too large will give you a biker look instead of punk chic.       Bottoms.    Since our inspiration is punk, keep pants slim or skinny in dark colors.  Black is the ideal.  Skinny black jeans (in denim or leather) with zipper detailing at the bottom of the leg and at the waist (front and back) will look undeniably punk.  To soften the look and add the “chic”, go for a slouchy black sweater in cashmere or superfine wool.  The mix of textures and details will make you seem ahead of the times whenever you step out.     If you want to go for a different type of bottoms, a short skirt is also another great option.  Go for one that is no longer than mid-thigh length, but comes in a flattering shape.  Be sure the skirt you choose  has plenty of zippers, buttons, studs, or other fun details.  If short skirts aren’t your favorite, wear the short skirt with a pair of opaque dark tights or leggings in a coordinating color.       Dresses.    Keeping it clean is the way to go.  This means dresses with simple shapes, such as shift or A-line, will work the best.  To stay with this trend, be sure you choose a dress with plenty of pleating, studding, leather patches, etc.  The punk will be in the details while the chic will be in the shape of the dress.       Shoes & Accessories.    Leather, patent leather, and suede are favorites for this trend.  For shoes, keep the look punk but still chic, go for rounded studs and other metal details as opposed to pointy, sharp, or jagged looking ones.   For handbags, go for large hobos in a sturdy and rugged material.  You can keep the detail minimal here since you have metal detailing in one or more pieces of your ensemble.  For jewelry, go for rubber, leather, or silver.  Funky chain detailing on a smaller scale keeps jewelry looking punk without being intimidating.   So now you are ready to be punk, subtle, and chic all at the same time.  This trend is great to incorporate with many pieces of your wardrobe as well as it can be easily worn in tandem with other trends that are hot this season.  To make sure that you are not overdoing it, try to wear no more than three studded or metal detailed pieces in the same outfit.  Good luck and Happy Shopping!

punktatWhere to Look for Cool Punk Rock Tattoos That Would Make Henry Rollins Proud

Author: Joser Kovacs

Recently I went to a local parlor to have a gander at some punk rock tattoos and boy, was I stumped! I flicked through quite a number of designs but none caught my fancy as they all look pretty lame and unoriginal, while some are even ugly as sin! I thought to myself “Man I would never allow my body to be decorated with such dreadful looking creations. If I’m to have tattoos that would probably stick with me for the rest of my life, they shall be one I respect.” So I did what any other punk rock fan living in the world of information technology would do, I walked out of the tattoo parlor and went straight home to my trusty computer. I banked on the mighty search power of Google to help me find some great looking punk rock tattoos. The designs that I wanted must meet the following criteria: 1. Cool and stylish artwork. Of course, excellent design is a must as you do not want to get stuck with a hideous looking tattoo that makes you want save up for a tattoo removal surgery. 2. Uniqueness. Have you seen some of the punk rock tattoos available out there? They completely lack originality and you might wind up having the same tattoo design like everybody else. This is completely unacceptable. Yes I know what you’re thinking; is it possible to find “unique” and “cool” punk rock tattoos online? I understand your concern as most of the offerings on the internet are cookie-cutter creations and what’s more, many tattoo artists are simply lazy to come up with new designs so they often resort to common lazy man’s tactics of switching the color or making extremely slight changes to a particular tattoo art in order to pass them off as fresh, brand new designs. Okay, so how do you look for a large selection of punk rock tattoos that meets the criteria that I’ve outlined above? Simple, when you’re surfing online, keep your eyes peeled for tattoo art databases. Unlike the typical tattoo shops samples and free websites which are laden with bland, uninspiring, zero-originality creations, most online tattoo art databases are constantly updated with terrific tattoo artwork that oozes creative flair. So if you’re looking for cool punk rock tattoos to add to your bodily collection, I’d recommend you head over to online tattoo art databases as they contain a lot of unique, rebellious designs that would make even legendary hardcore punk rocker Henry Rollins beam with pride.

Punk Fashion – Belt Buckles

Punk Fashion – Belt Buckles

Author: Robert

As most music lovers say, music is a lifestyle, regardless of the genre. That’s particularly the reason why we see people dressed in graphic shirts with their favorite bands and artists, sporting outfits and accessories that best describe the music that they listen to.

Whether it may be reggae, rock, metal, goth, punk, hiphop, or pop, people are showing their love for such music genre through their outward appearances and behavior such as the clothes and fashion accessories they wear.

And as more people are accepting and listening to Punk music, the popularity and demand for Punk accessories are growing. You can see famous celebrities and music personalities wearing the latest punk accessories to complete their whole outfit and to give them more edge. But aside from the colorful and streaky hair, makeup, boots, and studded belts and cuffs, one accessory that seems to put the whole look together is the belt buckle.

Belt buckles are the latest craze in town, and you can see many people wearing different kinds of belt buckles to give their outfit a more unique and yet distinctive feel. It not only serves the purpose of holding your belt together and keeping your pants up, it also gives you a chance to express yourself and your personality through wearing belt buckles that make a statement.

It’s also one way of standing out in a crowd. These belt buckles are perfect to wear for clubbing, parties, for your gigs, and simply for hanging around. Belt buckles ooze with personality, and it says a lot about the wearer. They can be good conversational pieces too since a really good and unique one will catch the attention of most people, and you could start a conversation with it as your topic.

There are many types of Punk fashion belt buckles, and they come in various materials. There are those emblems and icons made in silver, and there are those more elaborate ones where jewels and semi precious stones are embedded. There are even belt buckles that make use of Swarovski crystals to form the design.

Famous Punk fashion belt buckles include logos and insignias of your favorite band, guitar buckles, drum buckles, and many more. There are even buckles perfect for the emo punk, such as bleeding heart buckles, which can either be colored or pure platinum or silver. These belt buckles will look really good on Punk studded belts, and will really give your whole look a more Punk appeal.

If you want to personalize or customize your buckle, you can also have it done by getting your name or nickname, or initials as the design for your buckle. Of course, expect to be paying quite a sum for it, but it’s well worth having your very own personalized buckle as an accessory.

You can experiment and try on different buckles to try on new looks for your outfit. Mix and match becomes very easy, since all you have to do is replace your buckle and you get an instant new look.

Punk Rock T-shirt

Punk Rock T-shirt

Author: Mike Patton

What does a Punk Rock T-shirt mean for a real Punk Rock band fan? I am sure; it is not just a tee or a hood that he or she wears on a regular basis. No doubt, it is more than a stylish and cool piece of clothes a fan feels attractive and self confident in. it is something beyond other people and maybe the fan himself understanding.

If you ask for instance, a Nirvana fan, why he likes his Punk Rock T-shirt with a band photo on it that much, he probably won’t be able to give exact answer, but the fact the treats it like something very pressures is out of the question. Any way, why should we care or wonder why he likes this thing very much, this Punk Rock T-shirt makes him feel better and more self expressed and it is great.

Can you imagine a Punk Rock fan without a Punk Rock T-shirt? Of course not! He will never put on anything in pink or orange colors for that would be uneatable according to the punks’ way of life. Punks’ major colors are black, grey and other dark colors. The colors that symbolize sadness and desperateness, the most depressive colors that reflect Punks’ attitude towards life are Punk colors. Kurt Cobain T-shirt, dark and old jeans, cheap footwear, tattoos and piercing – these are the most common attributes of a real punk.

There are hundreds of Punk Rock bands, many thousands of Punks and millions of Punk Rock T-shirts, but for every Punk his Punk Rock T-shirt is so unique and special, because he was choosing it with special care. It may seem strange but fan do pay much attention to what they wear, as the clothes they wear is a part and partial of their life style. Businessmen wear suits, ties and shoes, but punks wear their favorite Punk Rock Tees.

T-shirts for fans are of such great importance to them, because they help to express their inner word, mood and, what is most important, their musical tastes. It is not a secret that especially teens feel extreme need to let the whole word know about them, to tell everyone that they are a separate world with its unique feelings, rules and fears. Teenagers want to look like punk rock starts on TV screens, they want to act like they, wear clothes like they wear and to express their admiration of them – these are some of basic reasons why they wear Punk Rock T-shirts.

But understanding music itself comes with time, first it is a simple imitation resulted in influence that comes from mass media and wearing Punk Rock T-shirt is a primitive following general rules, which by the way is paid much attention to. Later this devotion becomes more apprehended, it is come the higher level if the person becomes music literate or simply more life experienced. Music tastes break the limits of punk rock, change or develop when the person becomes older, but his first and favorite Punk Rock T-shirt will always remain something untouchable.

Startling Punk Hairstyles

Startling Punk Hairstyles

Author: Rachel Broune

The essence of punk is to be different and to not conform. Thus there wouldn’t be true “punk hairstyles”, because after a while it becomes widely adopted and becomes just the opposite of the original idea. There are different types of quirky styles in punk and it could be adopted by anyone who would love to get noticed in the society.

Punk hairstyles will go with almost any face shape. This type of hair style can be seen on popular magazines, televisions and very high profile people. Punk hairstyles are generally very fluffy and volumous with many different colors.

Punk hairstyles for long hair – Part a section of bang from ear to ear and clip it out of the way. From that part to your crown, lift sections of hair straight up and starting close to the ends, comb straight down to your scalp. Continue until you have lots of height. When you’re finished teasing your hair, take some of the reserved bang and smooth it over the teased area. Part the remaining bang in the middle and let it frame your face. Finish with a super hold hairspray.

For pop punk hairstyle to be created long hair is needed. Different hair colors are used on various portions of hair. Punk hairstyles have adapted over the past two decades. What began in the 80s as rash, brightly colored, in-your-face styles have now transformed into controlled, bleak emo hair styles. Although the choices of punk hairstyles will continue to grow, the old school 80s spiked hair and bright colors will remain a clear following of punk enthusiasts for many years to come. Avril Lavigne celebrity also have the same haircut. If you want a hard spike use Knox Gelatin its nothing short of amazing. You could probably kill someone with your hair afterward.

The most important thing that comes to mind while thinking of punk hairstyle is the weirdness and the multiple colours. Another important thing that is thought of about the punk hairstyle is the Mohawk hairstyle which is the hairstyle that persists for more than twenty years. It was more intense in the past rather than the much calmer style of today.

Punk hairstyles are colorful and weird. A Emo Punk hairstyle is famous among those people who desire to look for a punk look. Punk hairstyles are mostly sported by members of rebellious counter culture groups. A punk hairstyle with gelled and spiky is often accompanied by leather clothes and various body piercing.

The original punk hairstyle consists of purple or pink-dyed spikes created with the help of hair gel. Skate punk is characterized by asymmetrical cuts and bright coloration at the ends, rendering one’s hairs an impressive look. The death or horror punk reflects the gothic touch where spikes are being tinted with blue-black shades. Lastly, the pop punk hairstyle comprises of varied light colorations at different points in the long hair.
