If there’s anything we’ve learned about trends is that fashion and music go hand in hand. The pop-punk genre has made a strong comeback in recent years along with its gritty aesthetic. Music icons like Avril Lavigne brought grunge to the mainstream back in the 2000s. And now today’s current artistes are putting their own spin on the subculture in both sound and style. Here are nine pop-punk outfits to add some punk fashion to your wardrobe. 

Plaid Pop Punk Fashion Outfits

Plaids are the most dominant prints in most pop-punk outfits. Whether it’s on mini skirts and dresses or pants and jackets, you’ll find plaids almost everywhere in this aesthetic. And who better to draw inspiration from than the OG princess of pop-punk herself? 

Avril Lavigne made a massive return by going back to her rocker roots with her Love Sux album. Her teaser photos are very reminiscent of her Girlfriend era, featuring plaid mini skirts, graphic T-shirts, and platform boots.

Gen-Z’s favourite breakout star, Olivia Rodrigo, also showcased her range in the genre with hits like Good 4 You and Brutal. Here, she puts a more modern, Y2K twist to her pop-punk outfit by opting for a simple plaid mini dress and tying her hair up in two pigtails.

Even the most current K-pop groups are dabbling into the pop-punk genre. (G)I-DLE showed a cooler side to them in their lead single, TOMBOY. Besides their hard-hitting vocals, the music video is a visual feast for all pop-punk or grunge fashion enthusiasts. Clad in a leather jacket, the members look incredibly bold and edgy. We also love the addition of the tie. After all, it isn’t punk without defying the rules of fashion.

With her oversized leather jacket and distressed shorts combination, Minnie’s individual look from TOMBOY is practically the embodiment of punk fashion. This is further enhanced by the sheer crochet top she wears over her white bralette. Alternatively, you could also opt for a white tank top to add more coverage if you don’t like exposing too much skin.

ARMYs, let’s take a trip down memory lane back to 2014 with BTS’ B-side track, War Of Hormone. Now, lyrically, it’s not their best song about women and fans were quick to hold them accountable. But there’s no denying that it’s still a bop and we hate that we love it. Or as TikTok likes to say, “I can feel the feminism leave my body when this song comes on”. 

Their catchy tune is coupled with some edgy retro outfits, with V’s and Jungkook’s looks lending a particularly punkish touch. V’s pop-punk outfit infuses formal with casual by pairing a leather jacket and T-shirt with tapered pin-striped pants and Oxfords

Meanwhile, Jungkook fully embraces the punk fashion aesthetic with a grungier ensemble. Forget about the cute sweater-weather look, because the more rips and holes your pullover has, the better. He completes the look with a matching pair of black jeans and shoes to coordinate with the stripes of his sweater.

Known for their magical and bright youthful concept, TXT surprised fans with a more emo-rock side in OX1=LOVESONG. Admittedly, this look was taken from their Christmas holiday merch collection, but we love the cosy edginess of Beomgyu’s pop-punk outfit. Even more so when paired with his long wolf-cut hair and yellow highlights.

TXT continued their rebellious style even in their Japanese Chaotic Wonderland album albeit with a slightly cuter touch. Beomgyu looks like the picture-perfect rocker boy you’d have a crush on in high school. His outfit overlaps with the skate-punk fashion aesthetic, featuring oversized T-shirts, ripped jeans, and Vans sneakers.

JYP debuted their newest boy band in December 2021. It’s the first boy band they’ve had in six years since Day6. And judging from their first comeback single, Happy Death Day, they’re already off to a smashing start! 

Jooyeon’s pop-punk outfit is every e-boy’s favourite combination—an oversized graphic band tee layered over a button-up shirt. Instead of ripped jeans, he’s dressed in cargo pants for an added utilitarian flair.

Want to fully tap into your inner punk? Then bring out your eyeliner pencil or black eyeshadow stick to colour your lids for an intense smokey eye. But if the messy smokey look is a bit too much for you, you could also opt for a strong eyeliner wing instead.
