If you’re wondering how to add some edge to your looks, keep on reading to scoop some of her tricks.
- Go for a modern urban style.
Making a look edgy doesn’t have to be complicated. An edgy style is creative, unfussy, and effortless even though it often requires effort. Borrowed-from-boys outfits, tomboyish outfits, and architectural outfits may be edgy but it needs a certain personality to pull off. Like Anita, simply go for an outfit with y casual or has casual elements, and gives off a modern, urban vibe. An all black outfit can be a great starting point for getting an urban style but think of masculine pieces like straight-leg pants, boyfriend blazer, and such that can complete your edgy theme.
- Resort to leather ensembles.
Leather jackets and trousers are timeless pieces that can add some edge to your style. In the summer months, you may trade them for leather shorts, leather vests, or even leather miniskirt that will keep you cooler. Think of spicing up your basic button-down shirt by teaming it with leather shorts, and some edgy vibe to your sexy cut-out skirt with a leather jacket like Anita did.
- Opt for structured, sharp, and boxy pieces.
Architectural trend is one of the edgy looks you may go for if you’re not a fan of leather ensembles and rocker-chic accessories. Like Anita, going for a structured skirt will balance your feminine top, while a shift dress will make your feminine outfit a bit neutral since it offsets your womanly curves.
- Finish your looks with edgy footwear.
A little unexpected tweak can turn an ordinary look into something cool, chic and even a bit mysterious and sexy. Like Anita, make your summer romper look edgy with a pair of edgy footwear and a belt. Or, add some sporty spin to your edgy looks by going for a pair of leather slip-on sneakers that will look sophisticated with your casual shorts and blazer. If you’re wearing a tribal patterned skirt and a fringed top, complement it with a pair of edgy sneakers like Anita did. By heeding these styling tricks, you’ll be able to add some edgy spin to your looks effortlessly.
