REVIEW: RAGGED PRIEST A/W13

The Ragged Priest has always been a favourtie of mine; and not just because I share part of their name! Creating unique renewals of vintage pieces, with dip-dye, studs and fabric combo's, I've loved it all!
Their style has always been edgy and is perfectly fitting with the A/W13 trend of Punk. With the collection filled with mis-matched tartan, leather and cut-outs, there are some definite statement pieces.

























If like me, you can't get enough of knitwear and sweaters, there are many great variations this A/W. A re-vamp of the plain old sweater, into the Angle Contrast Sweat, means you need only wear it with some black skinny's for a simple daytime look.
Aran and cable knit jumpers also look set to be a key trend for A/W - great for lounging around in! And the Ragged Priest's Drench Aran Knit has a colourful twist on the original.

Leather is also a focus piece in the theme. Last year, we had leather skater skirts - my favourite of A/W 12.
This year, it's all about wearing the basics in leather. From a plain t-shirt (below), to an a-line dress and pencil skirt; you'll definitely need at least one in your wardrobe!

For accessories and embellishment, anything involving fringing, studs, exposed zips or metal detailing is set for the punk trend. If you don't want to go over the top too much, simply wear a little bit of fringing on a crop-top or shorts like above. Silver jewellery is a good compliment with punk inspired outfits, especially fine chain necklaces and many rings, as they won't detract from the outfit.

As a final touch, don't forget a pair of Dr. Martens or cut-out boots!
