For me Punk Rock is about empowering women to be vocal and confident. Most people associate Punk rock or music as violent, political, and rebellious. When I see a girl dressing to this extreme for me Punk rock fashion and musical style can be extremely linked. The music scene is normally dictated by the clothes associated with it. So it would be fair to say in most cases it’s all about portraying a rock chick image. But in my observation it’s more than just wearing pleated skirts to safety pin earrings. Punk Rock is about individuals demonstrating an unconventional style.
How To Be A Punk Rock Chick
If you are going to embrace the Punk Rock look, there is no holding back. This punk fashion has to be worn with the utmost commitment. It’s punk fashion all the way or no way at all.
- Listen to punk music like, The Germs, Iggy and the Stooges, Buzzcocks, The Misfits, Minor Threat, Black Flag, The Dead Kennedys. Hang about with other punk chicks so you learn your own punk style.
- Wear pieces of clothing that state your own fashion messages or symbols that mean something to you. Identify your niche punk message.
As the lead singer of punk rock band the Sex Pistols from 1975 John Lydon said, “the punks ruined it. They developed a unified image and attitude.” If you want to be a punk, be a punk. You don’t have to change yourself.
