When Debenhams got in contact with me and offered me a voucher to try and put my own spin on the a/w trends I knew immediately I had to try and incorporate the punk trend in my wardrobe. After lots of browsing on the website I eventually settled on a tartan scarf. I think an accessory is a great option to try and subtlety introduce a trend without going all out. It's a chance to dip your toe in without having to fully commit. Trends change at such a fast pace that by the time you've invested all your hard earned wages in it, it will be deemed unfashionable in a blink of an eye.

You always need a scarf in the UK thanks to the freezing climate and I think a tartan version will be one you can pull out year after year. This particular one is a brillant option to keep away the chills thank to the supersoft material. I felt very cosy commutuing to work this week!

Have you embraced the punk trend yet?
