“I would go out tonight, but I haven’t got a stitch to wear”

"I would go out tonight, but I haven't got a stitch to wear"

Revolutionary Brits: The people who influenced the punk/rock culture in fashion, music, art and of course, attitude!

Exctied by plans to visit London in December and by outfit inspiration that came to me in the form of plaid mini skirt I found online for the occasion (that I am already buying clothes for), I thought I should channel my inner-Brit (Which I like to believe exists) and put together an edit that expresses the best of the British Punk/Rock style and how it can be conveyed into Winter 2014.

Take note of the roots that influenced this style. trend setters were found in the form of musicians and artists: The Smiths, The Rolling Stones, Queen, David Bowie and the never ending fame and love for The Beatles and it’s members, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Star.

I’ve always imaged London as being cold with grey skies, busy streets, small lane-ways, double decker busses, sparkly lights and a large diversity of people… Tall people, short people, people with beards, people without beards, fun people, noisy people, stereotypical people and last but not least; The Queen.

The way to nail this style that screams British style, effortless and easily adaptable grunge is to use the basics and team them with a few statement pieces. For example, Plaid print pieces and block colours and shades to match, topped with simple but practical accessories.

 Abide by these rules like I would and We could be Heroes, Just for one day
