We’ve obviously been all about color lately, but even we can’t deny how totally killer this monotone look by blogger Jim Dumont of France is. Monotone definitely doesn’t equal boring, and here’s your proof. We can’t stress how crucial it is to add interest strategically when you’re rocking a simple ensemble, and Jim’s DIY bleached out jeans do the trick. The tie dye jeans add enough character to land him a spot on stage in a nu-wave punk band, and subtle styling details like his rolled sleeves and buttoned-all-the-way-up shirt keep it retro. The combat boots and John Lennon glasses are the icing on the cake. This look says rebel yell all over it.
June’s issue of Harper’s Bazaar Spain features Dutch beauty Anna de Rejk looking anything but sweet in this killer punk-western inspired editorial. From studs and safety pins on ultra bleached out denim to worn in western leather, the best of both worlds come together for a what Harper’s calls a new take of London punk style. All we have to say is that if Anna can rock a cropped denim jacket with fringe (which we’re totally into, by the way) over a pair of leather pants with lace-up details and manage to give it a punk edge, then it’s a definite ace look in our book!
