Fall’s fashion trend is a familiar one: punk style

It is the biggest trend this season, but to plenty of everyday fashionistas — some who were here when the looks were born and some who have been around for each iteration thereafter — it never went away.

I’m talking about the punk, rocker, neo-grunge trends that populated the fall 2013 runways (and even showed up on some spring 2014 runways, too).

I have been wearing the basic elements of this look — biker/moto jacket, lace-up combat-style boots, boyish flats (I am not a ballet flat kind of girl), black, plaid, graphic shirts, leopard and leather — for most of my life (which is a lot longer than I’d like to admit) and nothing gives me more pleasure than to pull out well-worn pieces to mix with newer on-trend items.

I have had a great time finding new ways to wear various Doc Martens, leather jackets and studded et ceteras.
