Studs, leather, rips, gratuitous zippers — let's face it, punk can be a whole lot of look. And while few of us are ready (and willing) to shave our eyebrows, clip our bangs, and forgo sunlight to achieve that perfect Lisbeth Salander look, that doesn't mean we have to completely shy away from hard(er)core pieces. When paired up properly, combat boots, spiky cuffs, printed jeans, and leather jackets can add the perfect, unexpected touch to every wardrobe, whether you're rocking the tomboy look or you're the girliest girl alive. To prove our point, we've rounded up 13 of the chicest punk-inspired pieces you'll be dying to add to your outfits. Don't worry — to ensure you get tons of milage out of your new investments we've included a few style tips to go along with each item. As for baby-bangs and tattoos, we're going to file those under "totally optional."
