Whether you getting tired and bored of your current wardrobe or want to take a stand against the latest #lillyfortarget line, there is good news. Debbie Harry, who never fails to rock her style on stage and off, inspires each silhouette and accessory.

Picture5Debbie Harry was clearly ahead of her time. Sorority girls everywhere have adopted her dislike of pants without knowing it. During the next couple years, straight silhouettes and dresses will be paired with tights of different varieties, eliminatiPicture3ng the need for pants entirely- as the saying goes, no pants no problem. The theory of Shifting of Erogenous Zones is taking full effect as we are “Screaming Skin” once again and have found Picture4yet another area of the female body to expose. Apparel items ranging from bathing suits, shirts, and dresses will begin to see cutouts featuring the abdomen and sides of the stomach. Denim has always been a necessity to many, and Debbie Harry is no exception. This classic fabric can now be featured in a crop tops and ripped button ups to give a new look.

Wanting to look both sexy and chic? Good news, because thigh high boots are in and here to stay. An essential in Debbie’s punk style, these boots can make anyone’s legs look long and lean. Hopefully, the boots you choose will be made for walking, but if not, at least they’ll look good. Tired of spending limitless money on jewelry that goes out of style the next season? Debbie Harry Picture1continuously can be found wearing small metal jewelry with a Picture2punk twist. Maybe it is hard to perform wearing large pieces of jewelry or her clothes just speak for themselves, but the pieces she chooses never fail to complete her outfit. Minimalistic stud earrings and bangles provide a nice change from the large and chunky accessories from past seasons. Other delicate rings and small necklaces can be essential as well to complete your outfit. Sunny or gray skies, Debbie Harry would dare not be caught without her pair of sunglasses. Mix up your current Ray-ban aviators for a pair of fashionable and round-rim sunglasses.
