Punk fashion

Punk fashion is a fashion style largely associated with the punk movement during the late 1970s and early 1980s. It varies very widely from Vivienne Westwood styles to styles modelled on the bands The Exploited and Black Flag.

A classic punk fashion look might consist of: a pair of combat boots or motorcycle boots, tight jeans or tight leather pants worn with a ripped T-shirt and silver bracelets. Hair would often be trimmed with an electric shaver, and sprayed with Rave #4 hairspray. Other accoutrements worn by punks often included: bondage pants, ripped fishnets, and pants with leopard patterns. Also often worn would be leather motorcycle jackets with words and symbols written on them with white paint markers. Other accessories included: studded jewelry and many safety pins.
