How to Dress Like a Punk Princess!
A lot edgier
Punk Princess - Pretty in Punk
Punk Princess style is edgy yet pretty, hard yet soft. It's about mixing punk with feminine pieces, like a skull and crossbones tank top with a frilly skirt. It gets its influence from the '80s - lots of oversized shirts, lots of bold patterns and definitely lots of color. So don't stick to all-black, but accent it with neon pink, electric blue and deep red.
Punk Princess - Drop-Dead Gorgeous
Skinny jeans, or drainpipes, are an essential wardrobe item this season. They look great with tees featuring skulls and crossbones and bands like the Ramones and The Clash. More must-haves are colorful leggings, footless tights and fishnet stockings paired with t-shirt dresses, miniskirts and cutoffs.
Punk isn't complete without a cool pair of kicks like bright Converse sneakers (think pink, purple or green), checkered Vans and retro Keds that Mischa Barton sports around town. Mischa's pretty girly - but remember, you don't have to be bad to the bone to pull off the punk princess look.
Punk Princess - Hair to Dye For
When it comes to hair, there are no rules. It can be natural, dyed in every color of the rainbow, straight and long like Avril Lavigne's, short and cropped like Kelly Osbourne's, or cut into a mohawk! If a mohawk is too extreme for you, then try out a faux-hawk (you don't have to shave the sides of your head). Comb your hair over to one side or spike it up - it's completely up to you!
