ACCESSORIES REPORT: Punk Princess Takes All

You probably read the title and thought Avril Lavigne circa 2002, right? No need to fret, there will not be mention of Sk8r Boi or grunge T-shirts with pink hair. Punk princess has a whole other style in the fashion world, and most of us are well past our pre-teen pink Converse obsession. Either way, punk princess is back in a new modern form and will be here to stay for a while.

I spotted this Fashionista on finals week, looking effortlessly chic and cool all while going through one of the most stressful experiences as a college student. Sporting a princess pink dress with an edgy detailed top from LF, Banana Republic jean jacket, Chloé handbag and Dolce Vita shoes, her outfit screams cute and casual. Her addition of a House of Harlow dagger necklace adds a little more punk to her outfit, making her outfit just as cute but not as princess-like.

Small details can make a difference when turning an outfit from one vibe to another. In this case, her necklace and the edgy details of her dress gave her the opportunity to express her punk princess side. Adding punk to an outfit is really easy. Bright, metal necklaces are a simple way to add edge to a basic shirt or dress. A skull coin purse would be the perfect amount of punk to add to any pink outfit-polar opposites are a striking contrast. Finally, no one does punk better than the signature skull scarf by none other than the king of punk, Alexander McQueen.
