There’s nothing I love more than an edgy look. An edgy look makes me feel hot, confident, and like a bad ass. Does anyone else feel this way or is it just me? In order to turn any look into an edgy look, there are 5 steps that I follow. This post is going to teach you how to style an edgy look because I want you to feel confident and like a bad ass.
How To Style An Edgy Look:
Make A Statement //
No matter where you are going, you need to make a statement when you walk into the room. You want people to stop and notice you. The best way to do that is by wearing a statement jacket. I found this printed jacket and I knew immediately that this would transform any outfit into an edgy statement look. If you don’t have a printed jacket, you can substitute it with a black leather jacket but I’d definitely recommend the bold, printed option.
Black on Black //
Now that you have your statement jacket picked out, the next step is to pull out your black clothes. Does anybody think of Johnny Cash when they wear all black? All I can think about is the man in black and that makes me feel like a bad ass. As far as your all black clothes, I recommend a pair of tight black jeans. In addition to the black jeans, pull out a black tank or basic t-shirt. Since you’ve already selected a bold jacket, you want to keep the rest of the look simple.
The Details //
The edgy look is almost complete, all that is needed is some fun details. There are so many jewelry options to add to your look but I’m obsessed with these earrings. Not only are these earrings the perfect color but they give the perfect amount of edginess to this look. After you find the perfect piece of jewelry to add to your look, the next up is your bag. I decided to go with a clutch because it’s simple and doesn’t take away from my look.
Vampy Makeup //
Next up is your makeup. This option is totally based on preference. When I wear something edgy, I want my main focus to by my outfit and lip color. With that said, if you opt for a dark, bold, vampy lip then you should keep your eye makeup neutral. If you prefer more attention on your eyes, than go bolder on your eye color and neutral on your lip. Remember, the main focus is your outfit so keep your makeup from becoming too overwhelming.
Once the main outfit is selected, the final outfit stage is the shoes. Black, heeled booties are the perfect addition to an all black outfit with a statement jacket. Since the booties are heeled, your legs will appear longer and you’ll walk with more authority. More authority adds to the bad ass feeling.
