I'm crazy about the updated punk trend this fall. It's the perfect mix of sophistication and tough girl (sans the nose rings and studs up the wahzoo). Think chains + plaid blazer + leather pants + pointy pumps. Head to toe or just one item work equally well. Whatever you choose, leave grunge back in the '90s.
You've not been punk'd. Promise. Style on.
