Pretty in Punk

by - 9:00 AM

My purple hair has been inspiring me to let my inner aesthetic out. If I could look like this all the time, I really think I would. I mentioned last week in this post that I was planning on a short series featuring some of my favorite boots. Today, we're pulling out the trusty Doc Martens. They always give me serious 90s vibes, and I love how clunky they are. I used to make jokes about how if I could get one good kick to the shins in with these that I could win any fight. They are a classic way to toughen up any outfit. I also love the silhouette and how much of a style statement the pants can make (killer Beetlejuice impression, am I right?). Styled with all black, they stand out perfectly, and vertical stripes are always flattering. Since they are neutral, I can also wear them with T-shirts casually or let other pieces shine. I threw in a couple of lip options for you. Both are from NYX with one more neutral and one for my risk takers... 

I had to do some digging to find the best matches for the top and pants because I did buy them a while ago. I found some spot on tops and great similar options for the pants for you guys! Details and more photos below!

Top // Old Navy // Similar // Similar
Cigarette Pants // Forever 21 // Houndstooth Pair // Gray and White // B&W Striped Leggings
Shoes // Doc Marten

If you've got ideas of more ways that I can rock this black lipstick, please let me know in the comments below! Also let me know what your favorite way to toughen up an outfit is?
