The off duty
Denim gets defiant this fall, fueled by punk’s penchant for breaking rules. From riotous plaid to zip-embellished pockets and paint-splattered seams, each pair makes a statement when teamed with an oversized gray sweater.
Dame Vivienne Westwood
Who: Convention-defying British designer who started ’70s punk and continues to be a provocateur.
Her look: Political slogan tees one day; deconstructed, historic-referenced dresses the next.
The runway tribute: Her eponymous labels are an extension of her radical signature style.
How to wear it now: Master attitude-laden elegance in a classical heroine dress, teamed with zipped ankle boots.
The original punk pinup, Vivienne Westwood continues to push boundaries and buttonsCredits
