Let’s talk punk! As an impressionable young girl fascinated with fashion and street style my Dr Martens and drainpipe jeans, were the closest I ever got to imitating a punk, although I do recall back-combing my hair, high above my head with copious amounts of hairspray, and rocking a Katherine Hamnett knock-off t-shirt. But, if we are really talking punk style, then without a doubt tartan, fishnets and spikes, dog-collar chokers, ripped t-shirts, a corset, leather, knuckle gloves, a mohawk, facial piercings, drainpipe jeans (in tartan preferably), Dr Martens and flashes of neon and graffiti are punk de rigueur.
