Hey guys, hope you all are doing good. A few days ago, on one of my social feeds; I had asked you all to suggest me one look which you all would like to see me in; hence by viewer’s choice I decided to post one look of your choice amicably according to my convenience. For today, I have the most suggested; one of the many types of punk looks; namely, The Street Punk Look. Despite starting out as the anti-norm in the 1960’s, this so called subculture, slowly reabsorbed into mainstream society.
The punk movement, splintered into new wave, pop punk, hardcore punk, no wave, street punk and various others. However, one defining element of the movement did not disappear quietly: non-conformity of the “Street Punk”. Some designers have built their entire brands around the tenets of punk culture and style, most notably Dame Vivienne Westwood and the late Alexander McQueen, while others continue to riff on punk aesthetics – this year we have seen plenty of references on the runways. One of such brands which prominently focuses on punk aesthetics via one part of its A/W 2014 collection inspiration is Wrangler. Coming to the look I decided to propose, the main element of a street punk look is a prominent motorcycle/biker jacket, contrasting it with a black T-shirt (not much seen); subverting it is a red iconic check print shirt on me. I decided to pair it up with the patent blackish grey denims to keep the authenticity of the brand alive. PUNK is usually metal and heavy .Hence to compliment it, I decided to keep it minimal on accessories mainly with a knee-chief and a wide brimmed hat around my head. The sunglasses add up a promising element to the look in totality. On my feet, standing out strongly are one of my favorite black leather boots from this year’s shoe collection. So, all those who wished to see me in this look, I hope that you try it at least once on yourself and share your experiences by commenting below.
