The preening and prepping of London Fashion Week has come and gone, so it’s time for fashion to take a break from all things proper and show off its rebellious side!
Whilst pencil skirts and kitten heels are having their moment in the trend spotlight right now, we haven’t abandoned our punk roots. From leather to worn in denim, we can’t help but indulge in a slightly messier ensemble once in a while, and everything gets a dose of attitude – from our makeup right down to our hosiery.
We’re in love with
this grungy-glam tribute, featured in today’s The Sun. Demonstrating that punk and pretty can go hand in hand, they’ve teamed punchy neon shades with faded denim, with plenty of spikey accessories to boot. Naturally, no punk inspired outfit can be complete without a signature cross pattern, so our Pamela Mann Opaque Cross Tights take centre stage. Great for adding a pinch of attitude, you can choose to show your patterned tights off in a flirty hemline. For the more demure amongst us, wear underneath a simple black shirt dress, stepping into heeled ankle boots for a subtle punk style that’s office-friendly too! Remember to add at least one bright accessory though, keeping your ensemble stylish rather than somber.
If you fancy taking your newly found grunge persona out in the evening, go for the sheerer Pamela Mann Sheer Crosses Tights. Sexy and subtle, team these with killer heels and a leather skater skirt, adding a bold lip for a colour pop. For those who still adore suspender tights, the Pamela Mann Cross Suspender Tights are just the ticket, with an opaque mock suspender that works to provide coverage from the chill, whilst the sheerer top part reveals a glimpse of skin.
And for when the sun comes out? Okay, so we’re not counting on this anytime soon, but when it does decide to turn up, we’ve got our sunshine-friendly punk style down to a tee. Add fishnet socks to a circle skirt to toughen it up, or team our Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks with a chunky flatform. With every colour of the rainbow available, there’s no excuse to not collect them all! For those DIY fans, why not try adding studs to the top of your ankle socks, for a look that Vivienne Westwood, queen of punk couture would be proud of?
So neglect those kitten heels for a moment ladies, and make way for leather, denim and attitude!
