Sugar-Coated Punk

Hey there — it’s Kristin, still discovering the fountain of youth for Stylesight. Here’s a powerful dose of day-glo—hope it brightens your day. At the Warped Tour in Hempstead, New York last weekend I loved the sugar-coated punks sporting highlighter colors, acid-toned animal prints, sporty tutus and tees emblazoned with positive messages. Who says punks have a bad attitude? East Coast teens are tapping into the ‘80s in a big way—Manic Panic hair, plastic chains, jelly bracelets, mismatched earrings and bows.

Props to the punks making it POP!

    I don’t know what it’s been like in the states, but fluro has been really overdone in Australia. For about the last 3 years. Every one of those kids annoys me. Sorry.

  • Oh I can appreciate the confidence it takes to wear neon, but it is so far from anything
    I would ever do!
