Overview

When it first emerged in the 1970s, few critics or even fans could have imagined how punk rock would change the trajectory of rock and roll over the next few decades. But as big an influence as punk had on music, it could be argued that it had an even bigger impact on the world of fashion.

So exactly what does “punk” clothing look like? Surprisingly, very few key elements have changed over the years. Super-spiky mohawks may not be as common among club kids now as they were in the heydays of the Sex Pistols, but tattered fishnets and spiked bracelets get that rebellious message across just as effectively now as they did back then. For better or worse, you don’t necessarily have to identify as a punk to adopt the best aspects of the fashion. And anyway, nothing says “punk rock” like thumbing your nose as such rigid definitions.

If punk fashion has one guiding principle, it’s to be the antithesis of fussy. That doesn’t necessarily mean you have to keep things simple, or even comfortable (although that is one big fringe benefit to the look). Tight or loose, layered or bare-bones, you can’t look like you’re trying too hard.

For ladies, that leaves a lot of room to play around. The default punk shoes are a pair of classic Converse sneakers or thick black boots. Either one can be the perfect start to a variety of outfits, but heels can work too — especially if they’re worn in contrast to a pair of distressed jeans.

Mind you, those jeans are far from your only option. Leggings paired with a studded belt can evoke the more colorful, 80s side of punk, and a red plaid skirt has been the de facto uniform of the punk rock girl for decades.

When it comes to tops, t-shirts are always a great option. This is the time to break out your favorite band concert tee, whether it’s got a few holes in it or not. (And if there aren’t, feel free to make some.) If you want to be daring, you can use that extra ventilation to show a bra strap or two, or you can layer it up by putting that t-shirt under buttoned flannel, an oversized sweater or a worn leather jacket (or all of the above, if it’s warm). To go all in, add some thick chains, leather bracelets or even some fishnets along the arms.

Guys have a lot of options as well, but it usually comes down to two main elements: Leather and denim. That goes for pants as well as jackets, and either one will be complementary to just about any body type. Needless to say, boots and sneakers will work equally work for this kind of getup. Punk was and is about thumbing your nose at convention, so have fun with things. Wear a tie over a tattered tee, and don’t worry if an element clashes here and there. To a certain extent, clashing is what it’s all about.
