Judging by the amount of pink at this year’s punk themed Met Gala, it would seem that punk’s softer color is hitting the spotlight big time this summer. Pink and punk go hand-in-hand, as proven by epic fashionistas like Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow who both choose to rock their own versions of the punkish in pink look at the Met earlier this month. While vibrant pink may be synonymous with ultra-feminine and girly attire, it also adds the perfect pop of color to a bold rocker chic inspired outfit. So do yourself and your wardrobe a favor and be on the lookout for a few punkishly pink additions to your summer closet.

If you’re at a loss in terms of fashionable punk  pink inspiration, look to footwear first. A pair of pink spiked or studded pumps are the perfect way to work in a bit of feminine punk flare to your wardrobe.  These can be paired with everything from edgy leather leggings, to your favorite little black dress. Another super chic way to rock the punkish in pink trend would be to go for a cheerful pop of pink on your lips, believe it or not pink lips can be edgy when paired with a sultry smoky eye and perfectly tousled rock star waves in your hair.  Ladies, it’s time to re-think the way we look at pink, by pairing it with edgier pieces we can breathe new life into this classic girly hue.
