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!

western leather skirt checked shirt

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‘.

I wear gold as neutral. I think gold is more exciting and effective as a neutral element of an outfit than the usual neutrals (black, nude, white), it radiates the whole look.

I wanted to create a fun office look using gold, I paired a metallic lamé gold shirt with a muted red silk crinkle tea skirt. Then I belted my waist with a brown leather utilitarian belt. I added tiger print pony shopper tote bag to balance the solid colors and black/gold cork sandals to keep this office look summery fresh.

I got the inspiration of pairing gold and red a little bit from the Chinese culture. These two colors are specially meaningful to the Chinese. In their culture the color of red usually means good luck and the golden color symbolizes wealth and also happiness. The two colors couldn’t be any more appropriate to wear to work, don’t you think? Obviously you don’t want your outfits to look too ethnic-y, you always want the looks to be modern and current. So adding other elements like an animal print bag and a utilitarian belt is the key.

Gold makes an outfit.

I would never have thought that the color lime green with the shiny sparkly black could look and feel airy together. I thought those colors together would look ‘heavy’ and cumbersome. But yesterday I was fashionably surprised when I put together a look using a lime green long pleated skirt with a black sequin crop top, it looks and feels so easy breezy light! I also think the style of the shoes I chose were the perfect accents to achieve the light look. The summer heat should never stop you from being adventurous with your outfits! They just have to be light..

I posted this look on Pose a couple of weeks ago. I’ve got to say, this is one of my favorite outfits this spring. Why? Because it’s just so rock and roll! :) I teamed up my oversized comic print silk shirt that the sleeve I rolled up and the bottom hem I knotted (for a more relaxed look) – leaving the tux tail-like on back, with my harem-ish black sequin pants and a long black tassel silk scarf. It seems like a very simple look but yet it looks stylized with big personal style written all over it. AND a big PLUS, this outfit feels just so comfortable, sexily comfortable! I also accessorized it with a vintage metal chain pocketbook and a pair of black Dior mesh sandals.
