Stylespiration: youthful punk

To those who subscribe to it as subculture, as a symbol of their attitudes and beliefs, punk is no doubt more than just a few safety pins and a particular hair style. Traditionally it boils down largely to being anti-establishment, though however you ascribe meaning to it that’s precisely the point: it has to have meaning. Remembering and understanding the origin of any style is key to reinterpreting it – so for those who want to take those elements of punk that have become more mainstream and throw them into their wardrobes for a short-term 2011 dalliance, the best way to inspire the trend is to wear it with the degree of attitude it deserves.

In this shoot for Common&Sense, stylist Sarah Cobb lets the punk elements seep in as subtly as possible through hints of nudity, masculine outfits and tough accessories. It’s not hard punk styling but it does create an authentic youthfulness that equals attitude to the subtle punkishness of the clothing.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
