Punk Clothing Style Ideas
Standard Punk Fashion: Standard punk fashion is often associated with bands like the Ramones and the Clash. In general, these punks where leather and denim with combat boots. The standard punk may also sport spikes and chains to add to the edge. There is usually a strong emphasis on do-it-yourself modification to this style of clothing. Rips, tears, and self stitching are commonplace. Belts are often studded with metal pyramids. Leather and denim jackets often have patches to express bands or political views and may also feature spikes or studs.
Pop Punk Fashion: Pop punk, which is the most commercialized look, incorporates basic elements of punk and skater fashion. Band t-shirts with ties, scarves, blazers, with Dickies pants are commonplace. Plain canvas shoes or drainpipe pants may also be worn.
Glam Punk: Glam is one of the oldest and most transcendent of punk styles. This style is associated with groups of the early 1970's like the New York dolls and continued into the 80's with hair metal bands like Motley Crue. Glam punk is extremely androgynous with a great deal of makeup, hair dye, bright color and glitter. Unusual and campy costume is often worn by glam punk with a celebration of ironic value or bad taste.
