Punk Rock is great, not only for its link to music legends like David Bowie, but for its ability to express a persons personality. It can be elegant, for those girls who feel the rebellious spirit but love the girlish style, or it can be more grungy, for the guys who want to show their subversive nature and edgy style to society. So whether you're a punk pro or a punk apprentice, these punk rock clothing items are perfect and you don't even have to dye your hair pink or ask your hairdresser for a lime green mohawk (unless you really want to!).
