Tartan is a consistent trend for the winter months and a key style we've seen in Jawbreakers collections of the past, but this latest concoction has reinvented the classic British check print in a whole variety of ways. Their daring split panel maxi dress shows that tartan works just as well understated as it does when you go the whole 9 yards, a high-split leg makes it an easy to glam-up piece perfect for a punk-rock Christmas do, whilst the added split-print hood gives this unique dress a high-fashion yet heavy metal feel. Check shirts are always effortlessly cool and Jawbreakers buttoned-up classic is an Autumn must have, worn oversized with skinny jeans, it's a versatile winter warmer that no wardrobe is complete without.
Think Jawbreaker and you're always going to think skulls, it's difficult to imagine a collection without! This old-school tattoo inspired skull and roses combo will never go out of style, a high neckline and lace insert shoulder panels gives this classic dress a modern 2014 feel. Skulls & roses are always a winning combo in our books making this a ready to wear genre crossing piece for tattoo loving babes, goth gals, punk rockers & even high street fashionistas looking to add a bit of Jawbreaker edge into their look.
Two-pieces have seen a huge revival over the past year and Jawbreaker have taken this street-wear inspired look to new heights, combining a super on trend neon green and a classic pink & black Jawbreaker leopard print with a high neck crop top and split zip-panel skirt. Easily worn separately or as an eye-grabbing combo, regardless of how this two-piece is styled the cutting-edge silhouette makes it one of the most stand out pieces of the A/W'14 collection. This punk print is so versatile that Jawbreaker have paired it with a cut out body-con & super cute skater dress to create a variety of looks that are unforgiving and unforgettable.
