This is my name for it, someone else may call it Punk Chic or a number of other names.
First let's define this trend verbally and give you some visual references for easy understanding.
Warrior Princess Defined:
Very edgy and sensual. Highlights the use and combination of leather, wood, metal and multiple chain arrangements. Risque and risky! Punk with bold sensuality.
This trend is obviously for those younger "bad" girls wishing to make a statement. I am seeing this trend starting to show up more and more frequently. I believe it will be a trend rather than a fad...heck, I even saw short sleeve spring dresses made from leather in some of the fashion house's runway shows! Leather, metal and chains baby! WOW!
