Now we're going to talk a little bit about, specifically female aspects of dressing punk.
Everything I've told you also counts for women but a lot of punk culture is really male,
it was almost predominantly male in the seventies, and so, as far as women dressing punk, they
can use all of the same clothing as men did. There's a certain androgyny within punk, I
mean some punk men will wear kilts, so, there is a certain parity between the sexes, but,
the whole idea of punk is also a certain amount of contrast, and so, as a girl in punk, I
might take something very feminine like this skirt which is a chiffon overlay, and I would
want to contrast it immediately with harsh, more typically masculine stuff. For example
fishnet stockings which are popular in other subgroups like Goths, are also huge for girls,
but you'd want them, once again, to be destroyed somewhat, to be, not perfect and look sort
of lived-in. I'm wearing the boots that I was talking about, those boots contrast really
nicely with the skirt. And I'm still wearing the same flannel as before, so the same elements
are there, there's something a little bit more feminine about it, but you don't want
to go too feminine, you want it to be contrasted really substantially.
