Rebel Girls

"Fall's biggest bash is a straight up anarchy party- and punk, grunge and all other rebels are invited"~ Lou Lou
Okay if you haven't noticed, punk, rocker and grunge looks are repeating history!  If you were an 80-90's child you would remember this scene quite vividly.  I remember tying my red plaid shirt in a knot to expose my midriff, wearing ripped jeans and chunky boots.

Thanks to musical influences like Nirvana, Beastie Boys and Soundgarden, and other bad boy influences on fashion were rocker bands like Metallica, Bon Jovi and Guns and Roses. Girls started wearing second skin motorcycle jackets and leather pants, ripped jeans, safety pins, tie dye, and more.

But how do you play up the rebellious sexy girl look without crossing, inappropriate boundaries?  Incorporate one of the pieces we've suggested below, into your exisiting wardrobe.  If you opt for the skin tight shiny leather leggings, match them with a longer sweater, blouse and blazer. You loving the plaid shirt but don't have the guts to pull it off? Add a plaid scarf.
Can't afford a new leather jacket?  Buy a budget friendly leather purse with buckles or faux leather skirt.

This A.M. we put together two different looks that have the elelments of being badass but in a good girl way.  What do you think? ;)

If you want to  update your wardobe for this fall trend, here are some must have rebel pieces:

•  Badass Lady: Black and more black, leather, shiny Leggings, leather insets or straps, lace up boots
•  Grunge Queen: Relaxed fits, layers and layers, plaid shirts tied around your waist, toques and combat boots, embellished baseball caps.
•  Punk Pretty:  Spikes, studs, leopard print, skulls,message tees, tattoos, edgy shoes, bags and jewelery.
