Edgy Punk Inspired Pieces Are Back! May 07 2013

So if we judge by the 2013 Met Gala Red Carpet, there’s only one fashion tidbit that we can be sure of: punk is coming back into vogue, and it’s doing so with a vengeance. Of course, we’ve already come out with a whole bunch of punk-inspired iPhone 4 cases, but what else can you do to incorporate this trend into your new spring and Summer wardrobe? Here are a few ideas!

The motorcycle jacket: With studs, of course. On a cool(er), rainy day, pair this with some cut-offs and a super girly, crazy lacy top to add a bit of edge to an otherwise standard spring and summer outfit. To glam up your party looks, pair this same jacket with a stunning, pastel dress and strappy sandals, taking inspiration from Sienna Miller’s recent white, floor length gown and gold-studded leather jacket combo.

Mesh: Whether in the form of an insert or over top a tank top in a super-on-trend color (like Pantone’s color of the year, emerald green), a mesh top is a fantastic way to give your outfit just a bit of edge. And as long as you don’t go all out with spikey accessories, scuffed up leather boots and cut-off shorts, you’ll be walking the fine line of this punk trend with grace!

About those boots: When paired with a standard spring or summer outfit, like the lace heavy, super pretty tops, dresses, and denim we’ve been seeing this season, those scuffed up punk boots are super fun. Keep ‘em at mid-calf and watch the compliments roll in!

As always, you can choose one of our punk-inspired iPhone 5 cases to update any outfit, and have fun with this trend: after all, sometimes a style that requires that you look like you don’t really care can be a relief!
