One of the timeless and always seems to be relevant inspirations in fashion and for dressing up is punk. I own quite few pieces of punk-inspired clothing that I’ve forever kept in my closet because I know those punk pieces won’t ever go out of style – I could always recycle and restyle them with different other pieces of new clothing and accessories and I get fresh chic new styles.

I was really excited when I found out about the Met’s spring 2013 Costume Institute exhibition, PUNK: Chaos to Couture.  I’m not a big fan of ‘DIY’ clothing and accessories which a big part of punk fashion, but I do respect and enjoy the liberty and mischievousness of it. I’ve been wearing my ‘punk’ styles lately. The cool spring weather in New York couldn’t be more perfect for the punk-inspired dressing since it’s all about layering.

I’ll be posting more punk-inspired looks in the next few days. Here’s my first one. it’s a look for going out party, I think this look is a great alternative for the night in the city. It’s fun, different, chic, and still sexy, which is important to me in my dressing :)

This look consists:

1. Vintage ascot ruffle ‘Victorian’ white lace top

2. Double-belted Dolce & Gabbana hot pink tartan plaid pleated ‘kilt’ skirt

3. Black leather motorcycle jacket

4. Lace-up Christian Louboutin platform heels

5. Kenzo bright floral-printed leather shoulder bag

I was googling around and stumbled upon this stamp that I actually had pinned on to my Pinterest awhile ago when it was just released along with other fashion stamps. Without realizing it, I styled my first punk look with a white lace victorian top with ruffle cuffs just like this on Vivienne Westwood fashion stamp. I guess I did something right! ;) I love that!

I really love the shape I created for this look. I paired my china print bell-sleeved bell-shaped top with my flare black leather skirt. I also wanted to style the lovely ‘Iznik’ print top so it would look more relevant, I thought my flare black leather skirt was the perfect partner for it. I chose the mirror leather wedges to polish up this look and some matte metal necklace and chain bracelets to keep the look more stylized without looking over-accessorized. If you’re tired of the Zara/J Crew-shorts-and-blazer look, this look would be a great change! ;)

I love western-inspired style, actually, I must confess that I am a sucker for western clothes, both the original and the inspired ones. Western-inspired look is one of those looks that I enjoy exploring and play with a lot. My style is 90% sophisticated feminine and 10% playful masculine, my perfect balance.

I paired my monochromatic checkered shirt with a western fringe leather skirt. I left some of the shirt buttons undone and rolled up the sleeves for a sexy and effortless feel. I accessorized with a Radenroro pony bag in moss green and corset tasseled lace-up Louboutins.

Check out my post about another western-inspired look ‘Westernizashion‘.

This look I posted on Pose yesterday (6/25) is feminine with a bit of tomboy edge to it, my all time favorite combo for a casual look. I love the soft and the hard paired together. The lovely rose print semi-sheer silk shirt with the gunmetal colored fringe leather skirt, the bold cut-out brown leather Celine sandals with lucite midsole and tire-like bottom sole to match the Radenroro chocolate brown stingray pocketbook. I know some of yous  probably are thinking “Leather skirt in summer??”, my skirt is lightweight and lined so it’s perfectly fine for summer, I’m talking 75-80ish here.

Would you wear ‘fall’ items for summer?
