It's Okay to Be Angry Young & Poor

Punk fashion is always hip. It shows a counter-culture awareness and a lack of shame with oneself, which makes it great. Best of all, it's almost impossible to do wrong. The following are some of the staples of punk fashion, and they integrate cleanly into almost any pre-existing wardrobe. If someone tells you you're doing it wrong, that's not very punk rock, is it?

Patches are first up. Patches are great to show off your favorite bands, slogans, quotes, images and more. A patched-up jacket can communicate as much or as little of your identity as you want cleanly and in a hurry, making it a great little conversation starter.

Studded belts are a go-to. You can check out the coolest studded belts at for an idea of what they look like in the 21st century. Cheaper manufacturing and greater resources for do-it-yourselfing have made more stylish belts much easier to get.

Boots are always a good option. However, it's important to pick what kind carefully. A lot of people just think heavy boots mean punk, but what you really want is something practical for any situation. The best way to communicate self-reliance is through utility.

Punk fashion changes day-to-day and doesn't have any cleanly defined standard. It's nothing you can do wrong. That would defeat the point of punk! The internet makes for a great resource for looking at what others are doing and getting the tools you need to do what you want to do with your punk wardrobe.
