When it comes to fashion trends, it’s key to keep up as they can evolve at breakneck speed. We were expecting a classic back-to-school season, with a wardrobe full of timeless clothes — especially since sustainability is now a must when buying new items — and pieces that combine elegance and comfort, but we find ourselves with a punk trend in the pipeline. And it’s a trend that offers possibilities for the entire wardrobe, from checks to boots through the fishnet, or just in a few touches of makeup.

Pop-punk aesthetic

More precisely, it’s the pop-punk aesthetic that is set to make a comeback this fall, according to the global search platform Stylight. [1]

Many of the pieces and inspirations associated with this trend have been getting more and more attention from users in the last few weeks, starting with the fishnet tights (+48% of clicks in July compared to the same period a month earlier) that were left untouched at the back of our wardrobes last fall.

Nails, plaid and boots

But for the pop-punk aesthetic to be perfectly executed, combat boots cannot be forgotten! And this season, they are showing up in a taller version that partially hides the knee (+25% of clicks). And of course, the global search platform has also noticed the beginning of a craze for plaid clothing, from pants to skirt through to dresses (+17% of clicks), and for studded belts (+14%). A trend that’s just simmer but which should increase as autumn approaches.

It remains to be seen if pop-punk can also influence the world of beauty with a boom in related hairstyles and makeup looks. If so, we should see an autumn dominated by quiffs, shaved temples, even half-mohawks, studded accessories, and, perhaps the most essential, ultra pronounced, smudged eyeliner.
