Looking edgy doesn’t mean wearing leather ensembles all the time, and looking chic doesn’t necessary mean wearing ribbons and laces on your outfit. Known for her chic and edgy fashion style, Sheryl Luke is the blogger behind the “Walk in the Wonderland” that serves an inspiration to fashionable women. Since she is fond of exploring diverse fashion style to show off her personality, keep on reading to scoop some of her tricks.
For the simplest way of wearing an edgy-chic style, have your chic outfits first then incorporate edgy accessories with them. Though traditional edgy accessories are pieces with studs and spikes, Sheryl creatively opted for chicer pieces like a pair of slip on snakeskin shoes, knee-high snakeskin boots, peep toe military boots, as well as army satchel. Sometimes, olive green or forest green has its own edgy appeal to them as they’re present in camouflage print uniforms originally worn by soldiers. So you may go for those shades even in your accessories to make them look edgy without losing the chic vibe to it.
You can easily look feminine and chic in dresses, but looking edgy with them seems a challenge. Sheryl opted for olive colored and charcoal shades of a button down shirt dresses that look edgy due to its military vibe while feminine in their structure. You may look for stylish prints, but to keep the edgy feel on it, go for abstract prints, geometric, and even camouflage ones. Skip those cheery and live shades as it may look too feminine and soft contrary to the style you’re aiming for.
Since skirts can be matched with dressy or casual pieces, they’re more versatile to suit your edgy style. Like Sheryl, you may opt for button front denim skirts, cut-out skirts, and printed skirt with edgy prints. You may also add some twist on your feminine maxi skirt by wearing a chambray shirt with them. Brown colored accessories like a satchel bag, leather belt, and clogs gave Sheryl’s casual outfit an edgy twist that you may also go for.
Add some edginess to your typical casual outfit by going for distressed jeans in boyfriend or skinny style and just dress them up with chic tops like Sheryl did. Denim jumpsuit or even military style jumpsuit will be great giving you some comfort from the relaxed and laid back look.
For a casual chic look, skip those distressed styles of jeans. If you’re planning to wear a slouchy fit like a boyfriend style, cuff them to look more polished, or simply pair them with chic tops like a V neck blouse, structured blazer, wool coat, cashmere cardigan and such. This way, you’ll look fresh and fashionable on your street looks while keeping that edgy and chic feel.
