Although summer’s almost over (cue violins), that doesn’t stop this season’s Polished Punk trend from being the hottest one out there. We bring you a look from fashion blogger Crystal Kong, who nails this coveted rebellious trend. Here’s everything you need to know:
“The key to fashion trends is taking what’s currently trending and incorporating them in a way that’s true to your own style. By injecting trendier pieces with the pre-existing pieces that’s already in your wardrobe makes for a more effortless look. This look is the perfect hybrid between my personal style, which can be best defined as “casual-chic”, and any current fashion trend . I like to mix-and-match 1-2 statement pieces with simple and classic wardrobe staples for a more balanced look.
When I saw this studded backpack and chained pair of booties from Call It Spring, I knew I had to have them. I’m a sucker for anything that’s black, anything that’s gold, and anything that’s both. The KESKE is a great alternative to the crossbody bags that I always carry because it holds twice as much and keeps my hands free at the same time. The DIGOSSI make for the perfect addition to my already massive ankle bootie collection. Its grey felt material and black chain detail makes it stand out from anything (and everything) I currently own. The chunky heel provides additional height in a way that’s still comfortable enough to be worn all day.
Since these 2 pieces are edgy, I stuck with a darker color palette of blacks and greys to allow my accessories to own the spotlight. A classic black v-neck tee and a pair of dark grey cut-off shorts to keep things casual and comfortable, and a black blazer adds a touch of polish to finish off the look.”
