How to Dress Like a Girl Punk Rocker


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.
