We are counting down the days until the official unveiling of this year's Costume Institute's annual Met Gala on May 5 and its accompanying Met exhibit, PUNK: Chaos to Couture.

Until then, we pay homage to punk's history by showing you how to wear it in 2013. And we're not talking about how to wear punk the night of the Met gala-you'll probably see chain mail dresses from Proenza Schouler's fall runway show on some young actress-but how to add a little edge to your everyday wardrobe.

Whether you go the jewelry route (Tom Binns is and forever will be the destination for punk jewelry), or go for a bit of daring clothing (something studded is always a safe bet), mastering this trend is about making it your own. And in fact, it's this DIY element that has always been an integral part of punk fashion.

So whether you're looking to pay homage to some of the heroes of punk like Debbie Harry or you prefer to embrace the modern interpretation through high fashion, we've created a look that's right for you. Scroll through to shop the different punk styles and figure out how to wear punk in a way that suits you best.
