Mix Practical And Alternative!

  Kat's back and she's talking 
about some ways to have fun with fashion!
As a lover of alternative fashion I always look forward to the time of year when skulls, studs and all things gothic make a comeback in the mainstream fashion stores, and I’m not talking about Halloween! This summer the British high street is awash with alternative fashion trends with many taking inspiration from the current festival season to create a range of clothing fit for any wannabe rock star. As a self-confessed lover of impractical footwear I am in my element as stores battle to add the biggest spikes and the most studs to their skyscraper platform heels.
For those with a more sensible head on their shoulders, squeezing feet into shoes which would not look out of place in a KISS tribute band may not seem like the ideal way to try out this current trend. If you do want to unleash your inner rock star without having to stand in the corner in fear of falling over, here are my top tips for practical alternative fashion.

You don’t have to go overboard.
Simply adding a skull scarf to an outfit can take your overall look from preppy to rock chick. There are some fantastic accessories out there at the moment that look great when layered together to create a festival, rock chick lock.

Get Clashing
Combine floral prints with leather jackets and studded shoes to create a contrasting look that will not look out of place in the muddy fields of Glastonbury or the celeb filled tents of Coachella. Experiment with textures as well as prints to create a laid back festival look.

Style and Comfort
Why suffer for fashion purposes when you can find comfortable shoes that are also very much on trend. I love combining a pair of comfy Naturalizer shoes with a skull print dress and leather jacket to create a look that not only looks good, but will allow me to dance all night to my favorite band without worrying about sore feet in the morning!
