Whether breaking into a new style or dressing up for Halloween, if you want to dress like a punk rock girl, you need the right apparel. Punk style began in the 1970s as a "rebellious and confrontational style", according to the Grapevine web article, "Get This Look---Styles For Your Inner Punk". When thinking of girl punk attire ideas, imagine yourself as a fashionably rebellious teen who is not afraid to break the wardrobe mold.
Things You'll Need
- Band T-shirt
- Leather jacket
- Spiked collar
- Studded belt
- Fishnet stockings
- Plaid miniskirt
- Striped knee socks
- Utility boots
- Chain necklace
- Stick-on jewelry studs
- Hair gel and hair spray
- Temporary hair color
Hit the vintage clothing and thrift stores. Look for band T-shirts, leather jackets, spiked collars and studded belts---all components of both retro and modern punk fashion listed on the Grapevine website. Other items to look for include fishnet stockings, plaid miniskirts, striped knee socks, utility boots and chain necklaces.
Dress up in your punk duds. Wear torn fishnet stockings under your plaid miniskirt. Don striped knee socks over the fishnets and step into your pair of chunky utility boots. Slip into your band T-shirt and top it all off with a black leather jacket. Accessorize with your chain necklace, studded belt and spiked collar.
Purchase stick-on jewelry studs from a costume jewelry or dollar store. Wear the studs on your eyebrow, nose and lip.
Do your hair punk-style. Use hair gel and hair spray to create a Mohawk. Spray your Mohawk in a temporary hair color such as blue, red or green.
