The punk trend is a hard-to-miss look marked by a whole lotta leather and PVC, intense shades of red and yellow interwoven in bold plaid prints, and, more often than not, accessorized with safety pins and zippers. Although the edgy items are on display in just about every store this autumn/winter that doesn’t make the bell-and-whistle laden look any less intimidating to try.
