Positively Punk: Fall 2015 Fashion Trends

Since its inception, punk rock style has managed to reinvent itself every through years, recycling some elements while adding new quirks or refinements, and the 2015-2016 Autumn/Winter outlook doesn’t disappoint.

While fashion collections feature the prerequisite dark and dramatic black punk rock clothes, they lean a bit more edgy and sleek, while still incorporating the tried-and-true thigh-high boots, chains and bold makeup. This is a grown-up, more sophisticated version of punk style, though – with a nod to eco-concerns by including faux fur and pleather in with the chains and plaid accents.

Music, as usual, has informed the latest trends; there are obvious rock influences along with sly grunge references, and even refined classism inspired by jazz and swing stylings. While the old-fashioned rebellion customary in punk culture shows up at NY Fashion Week, there’s a hint of versatility and softening of some of the more hardcore aspects. Almost every designer walking models down the 2015-2016 fall runway featured at least a couple punk-inspired designs, or at least a sly wink at the culture. From Marc Jacobs to YSL to Balecianga, punk style was a definite element in this cold season’s couture.

Some of the major punk-referenced trends in fashion and style spotted during fall fashion week that you should incorporate into your look this winter include:

Thigh-High Boots – Stiletto heeled or clunky, faux fur trimmed or pleather, thigh-highs are a staple of punk rock style. Paired with a long, cozy cardigan or a simple black sheath dress, boots scream rebel.

Dark Nails and Lips – It’s hard to bring a punk vibe with light, perky lips and nails. Dark greens, blues and violet were seen on model’s nails, and most sported dark hues of burnt red, hard orange or deep bluish-purple lips.

Plaid Anything – The queen of punk, plaid elements add a touch of whimsy to dark ensembles. Look for plaid skirts in pencil or a-line silhouettes. A tartan clutch or cardigan can add a sense of sophistication to torn jeans or tight leggings.

Uber-Long Coats – From trenches to maxi-coats, long black coats are a dramatic fashion statement. Combined with thigh-high boots with a splash of punk neon from a sweater dress peeking out, a long coat is transformed from a grungy Matrix-esque fashion piece to a strong punk rock statement.

Bling, Bling, Bling – Add some chains and a choker and cuffs to any outfit for instant punk appeal. While silver is the usual go-to-metal of choice, gold accents are also trending.

This season’s punk look is well thought-out, sophisticated and understated, so use moderation in your styling; go easy on the plaid elements, and if you’re sporting multiple cuffs and chains, choose an outfit that will allow them to shine.

What Everyone Should Know Before Buying Jewelry

What Everyone Should Know Before Buying Jewelry


Anyone who has ever had to navigate the endless number of jewelers and retailers, in search of the perfect piece of jewelry, can tell you how difficult it can be. Save yourself the hassle of making an unwise purchase by brushing up on these tips for shopping for jewelry.

Do research on your fine stones, especially if you engage in regular activities that may chip or completely cause them to break into pieces. Not all stones are created equal. Some quartz, peridot, amethyst, to name a few, are among the most fragile stones and will require very gentle wear, care and storage.

Stay away from cheap glass jewelry. Borosilicate and lampwork glass jewelry are a new rage. Many styles of this type of jewelry are popping up in malls all over the country. However the products labeled as high quality lampwork glass are nothing more than cheap imported glass goods. Such glass products are usually not kiln annealed which means that there is a high chance that the product can shatter, cutting your skin while you’re wearing it. Purchase glass jewelry from local artisans or reliable vendors that you know are selling quality products. If it’s too cheap, you know it is too good to be true. Good glass costs anywhere from the low forty dollar range up into the hundreds. Read the rest of this entry »
