Fierce and edgy punk spirit has been a major factor in fashion this year, with neo-grunge and punk-rock glam both becoming very popular styles this season. What we love about the punk fashion subculture is that is showcases a carefree edgy vibe that is just as chic as it is alluring. What makes punk accents so special this season is what they are being paired with. Instead of only being paired with the typical quintessential punk outfits, punk fashion accents like spikes, leather, studs and distressed attire are being pair with lux high fashion ensembles. Adding chic punk accents into your outfits this season is a surefire way to amp up your edginess and freshen up your fall wardrobe.

For fall 2013 designers like Anthony Vaccarello, who showed edgy metallic embellished asymmetrical mini skirts and Versace, who showed fierce spikes and glossy body hugging leather, have been paving the way for this trend to play a major factor in your fall wardrobe. Vivienne Tam is another notable designer who opted to go a little punk with her 2013 runway collection showing grunge style tartan and sexy textural mesh. The great thing about the punk accents trend is that the punk theme does not need to overpower your entire look, the small accents will add just enough edginess to make an impression.
