Are you ready to rock this season?

Arguably the biggest trend this fall, the punk look is taking over in a major way and we can't help but notice the edgy attitude currently seen on clothes and accessories in stores now.   

That's right, the punk trend is having a moment, and we're embracing the ‘90s-inspired look in all of its grungy glory.

Countless designers including Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Emilio Pucci, Rodarte and Vivienne Westwood showed major punk themes in their fall collection, filling the runways with studded embellishments, tartan plaid motifs, lots of leather and aggressive shoes and accessories. 

Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez have all rocked the punk trend in recent outings, proving that punk is actually pretty easy to pull off, whether it's for a red carpet event or a casual outing on the weekend.

Wondering how you can incorporate the cool trend into your everyday wardrobe?

We've got plenty of pointers!

First, start with the basics: sleek skinny jeans, leather leggings and a moto jacket can add a dose of rebellious edge to any look with minimal effort. 

Add in leather-trimmed tanks or cheeky graphic tees, studded ankle boots or heavy chain necklaces and bracelets for maximum impact.

Or, keep it contemporary and classy with one statement piece like a leather dress with exposed zipper details for a look that's undeniably chic for work or play.

We're betting no one will mess with you in any of these fierce fashion must-haves.
