Punk: From the Runway

Fashioning your clothes into a punk outfit takes only a small collection of basic pieces, one or two extras to liven the look, and a bit of creativity.  Let the runways lead you...

Balmain showed my favorite punk look of the designer collections I perused.  I interpreted the collection as all-American punk with a hint of glam.  To fashion the trend from your closet, start with skinny jeans or short jean shorts.  Add a red, blue, or flag-inspired shirt, then top off the look with pointy shoes for the jeans or ripped black tights and boots for the shorts.  You can also wear a jacket with this outfit.  For my Balmain-inspired punk look, I ripped a few holes in black tights and added black boots.  (Tights, Sheer Elegance; boots, Mudd; denim skirt, So Wear It Declare It; shirt, XOXO.)

Balmain's collection also contained some shiny and glittery pieces.  You can work these into your outfit through accessories, like shoes, belts, and jewelry.  (Shoes, Fabulosity from JCPenney; belt, unknown.)

If you own a leather jacket, follow Burberry Prorsum's example and wear it with a short, ruffled dress.  Other elements from this collection that you might find in your closet include snakeskin, leopard print, and bright clutches and belts.

Now it's your turn to get creative with the clothes in your closet.  Fashion some punk outfits, and come back and share your creations!
