Editor’s Pick: Fall 2013 Punk Chic Accessories

Punk_Chic_Accessories_11As you may know Punk is back for fall 2013 and at Fashionreverie.com we love all things Punk inspired! From New York City to Paris some of the biggest fashion houses have cranked out amazing Punk Chic accessories for fall 2013. With the resurgence of Punk on runways in 2013 has come a more redefined and sophisticated look to the once unapologetic style that was birthed out of youth rebelling against the mid-1970s social norms . With Punk Chic accessories this season, it was all about matching hard and soft, masculine and feminine qualities that can be found in Punk accessories. Whether you want to dress it up or dress down Punk-inspired accessories this season, the trick was adding just the right amount of edge without seeming contrived.

Bags

This genuine springbok fur and leather clutch by Ted Baker London is the perfect accessory for any stylish fashionista wanting to tap into the Punk Chic trend. With its leather finish and blue/black fur trimming that almost mimics a traditional punk-styled Mohawk, this clutch will definitely be turning heads and making a statement in true Punk fashion.

Dafine Balatsos features an awesome studded ball bag for men on odd-style.com. While not considered practical by many fashion pundits in the traditional sense of menswear accessories because of the brand’s out-there, over-the-top presentation, Punk has taught us that breaking tradition always gets you attention!!

Shoes

These Charlotte Olympia and Tom Binns’ Dolly Riot safety pin–embellished, platform pumps don’t read as Punk inspired at first glance, but if you are conscious of the “DIY” mentality in 70s Punk culture, evidenced in distressed clothing with safety pin that were the result of re-purposing dated, threadbare clothing, then you will understand Charlotte Olympia and Tom Binns’s point of view. In that spirit of Punk, Charlotte Olympia has crafted a pretty modern and feminine pump with that perfect balance of chicness and edgy rebellion.

The Cinzia Araia blade high Santiago boot is perfect for the man looking to bring a much-needed edge to his look! With the zipper detailing going up the back of the boot and the “blade” shaped opening of the boot, Araia captures the essence of what it means to be Punk Chic.

Bracelets

Bijoux De Famille has crafted a gorgeous cuff bracelet that is a great modern interpretation of Punk-inspired accessories. From the spikes and the rose gold coloring of the cuff, this takes Punk Chic into a more subdued expression while still maintaining the essence of rebellion.

Cropped_bracelet

This gunmetal chain bracelet by Lanvin, available on ssense.com puts a really chic and refined spin on the Punk Chic trend. This bracelet would look great on any guy, and gives us a fresh take on Punk accessories for the fashionisto.

Gloves

Karl Lagerfeld’s black-studded fingerless gloves are the perfect balance of being on trend while still offering the classic style of Punk to your wardrobe, with an obvious ode to Lagerfeld. Great for fall, and perfect for any man or woman who dares to pull it off!

Punk_gloves_valentino

Valentino offers the perfect blend of edgy/elegance with his black and beige leather gloves called the “rockstud.” With the studs bringing the not-so-subtle, nihilistic edge with just a hint of sophistication, the elegance and refinement of the accessory is what is most striking! Keeping up with the trend of updating the look of 70s Punk to a more chic distillation is what makes this glove work for any woman who still wants to incorporate Punk Chic into her wardrobe.
