At Ease in Stripes & Spikes

At Ease in Stripes & Spikes

One of my favorite ways to achieve new and edgy looks is to use inspiration from much more extreme and less mainstream styles. This casual, punk rock inspired look conveys the essence of it’s inspiration through the combining of bold stripes, and chunky, silver & black accessories, including cuff style & spiked bracelets, an oversized ball chain necklace and a great black leather look waist belt with lock and chain detail. The tuxedo stripe skinny jeans and almond shaped, patent leather look captoe flats evoke a military feel which is a major element in punk rock style.  Striking lips, superlight pink nails and soft, flowing, side swept hair complete this look for a perfectly balanced, punk chic style that is both classic and daring at the same time.

The details are what keep this look so balanced between subtlety and boldness because they are put together in such a way that you know exactly which style has inspired the look without feeling like it’s been overdone. .
