So feel free to mess around! You don’t necessarily have to stick to the darker spectrum. Whatever you choose, go all in!
2. Keep it comfortable!
To create a punk Rockstar style, it’s all about choosing clothes that you’re kid feels most comfortable in. If your kid feels comfy, he/she will feel more confident to run, play and jump around, just like a true Rockstar would. Don’t worry if it’s wrinkled scruffy old or torn. It will just add to their rock punk vibe!
3. Rock a free-style hairdo
This is the best bit. You don’t have to anything! The ‘I just rolled-out of bed look and wear whatever ’ is totally on point for a Rockstar. If you do want to do something special, you can always create a green mohawk or temporary color one lock of hair in a vibrant color such as hot pink. Do make sure that the color is is kid-friendly and temporary, showing up with a green lock of hair to grandpa’s birthday may not go over well.
4. DIY the look
