Modeling for Uniqlo and DKNY? Check. Being Dior Beauty’s event DJ and brand ambassador? Check. Playing for the likes of House of Holland, Topshop, and MaxMara? Check again! When it comes to music and style, Harley Viera-Newton is definitely one of our biggest inspirations, so we are more than excited to have her play for Shopcade’s holiday shopping event in NYC on December 12!

We managed to chat with her about Christmas gifts, her collaboration with Jay Z and his music label, and her hottest spots in London and New York!

With Christmas getting really close, we really have to start this interview with questions about presents! What has been the best present you have received?

My boyfriend designed a necklace for me with my best friend and I haven’t taken it off since. I love four-leaf clovers, and they made a little silver clover with H’s on each leaf. It’s amazing.

What would be your dream holiday destination? Would you prefer Santa’s village or someplace warm and sunny?

I’m a sucker for a beach.

Which film puts you in the spirit of Christmas?

Love Actually.

What are your favorite tunes for the festive season?

Mariah Carey, Wham, The Waitresses.

What is the one thing that you can’t have enough of during Christmas?

Mum’s cooking! Chocolate! Presents! Can Christmas be all year, please?

on

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.

If you’ve been hesitant to add a punk piece to your wardrobe, we think we might have found one – Topshop Punk Tartan Balloon Trousers – that will fit into your closet regardless if you’re a classic, trendy, or eclectic type. Here are three easy ways to pull off the punk look and add a little wild to your wardrobe.

1 Piece, 3 Ways: Topshop Punk Tartan Balloon Trousers

If your style is on the simple and sweet side, you can give punk a whirl by adding modern-preppy staples like this polka dot blouse, which helps pull the periwinkle out in the pant, and a quirky knitted bunny rabbit sweater. Add chunky Chelsea boots for a twist. Pretty AND punk rock?! Yes, it’s possible!
