Tips For Preppy Punk Fashion

Tips For Preppy Punk Fashion

Preppy punk fashion is a fun and stylish way to stand out from the crowd. It's a mix of punk and preppy styles that combines elements from both subcultures. This look is perfect for those who want to make a statement while still looking chic and polished. Here are some tips to help you get the preppy punk look.

So your style isn't completely preppy but it isn't completely punk, either. Mixing styles can get a little confusing when you aren't sure what works well together. But hey, that's what we're here for! Just follow our outfit inspo that fuse together both preppy and punk styles for a great "soft grunge" look. 

Soft Grunge

Wear an overall dress with a striped tank for a soft grunge look.

For a cute, every day soft grunge look: try a pair of overalls or an overall dress with an easy tank or tee layered underneath. Use a satchel or backpack with leather detailing like the one shown above to carry all of your essentials! This is a versatile style that can be worn with sneakers, boots, sandals, and flats.

Preppy Punk

Wear a plaid skater dress for a preppy punk style.

For a preppy punk look: wear a plaid skater dress with over- the- knee socks and combat boots! Since the weather is getting a bit warmer, you can also substitute sandals, flats, or heels for your shoes. The skater dress silhouette will keep you comfy all day and can easily tranform from a day to night look!

For the guys: go plaid for an awesome preppy punk style! Try wearing a plaid button up shirt with distressed jeans and combat or chukka boots. Accessorize with a simple bow tie and keep cozy in a black leather jacket!

Glam Punk

Wear a bodysuit and distressed jeans for a glam punk look.

Wearing a lace-up corset or bodysuit and distressed jeans will help you put together a sultry glam punk outfit. This look is best for a night out with friends or even for a date! If you want to punk up this look, accessorize with chain jewelry and wear a beanie. For the ultimate glam punk ensemble, put on a pair of heeled booties or sandals!
