Trying to create an edgy look may sound like a challenge, but it’s a lot easier than you think. Fashionistas and celebrities like Gigi Hadid, Kylie Jenner and the queen of edgy fab Rihanna have been slaying this style everywhere and you can too. If you are looking for a style that will make you feel free, sexy, and just a little bit badass, I got you covered. Here is how to master an edgy-chic look, that will come across as effortless.
1. Distressed Jeans
If you are looking to ease into a punk-rock look, I highly recommend starting with a pair of distressed jeans. Due to my curves, I prefer high-waisted jeans that secure the lower half of my stomach, which generates a flattering and sophisticated look. To elongate your legs and to show off your killer footwear, I would cuff the jeans up twice. Boyfriend jeans are comfortable, easy to wear, and most importantly, the first step in mastering a street style ensemble.
2. Rockin’ Kicks
Everyone needs rockin’ kicks in their closet. Therefore, a trendy pair of knee-high boots, black booties, or platform sneakers will take your edgy look to new heights Channel your inner badass with a pair of studded boots or killer stilettos. This can convert your casual day attire into a sexy going out outfit.
3. A Grunge Dress
First things first, get out of your comfort zone and allow your freak flag to fly. After, try playing with different types of patterns, fabrics, and styles. Most likely, you have a dress already in your closet that could be perfect for an edgy-chic look. Looking in your closet first will allow you to save money and incorporate your personal style into your new and improved look. If needed, head to the store and find yourself a skater, dark floral, or slip dress either in lace or velvet.
4. Rocker Chic Makeup
When people think of edgy makeup, they imagine a gothic rock star with dark eyeliner and a dramatic smoky eye. However, the key to success is to keep it basic with nudes. Of course, incorporate your classic black mascara and dark eyeliner, but keep the rest pretty neutral. Although, if you want a pop of color for an evening look, I recommend a deep red or burgundy.
5. Embellished Jackets
There is nothing I love more than a nice embellished jacket! Whether the jacket is studded, has graphics, or is distressed, you can find them at almost any retail store. When I am shopping for a new jacket, I usually go a size up. I prefer an over-sized jacket because I like to wear it with a skirt, dress, or a bulky sweater underneath. Therefore, since jackets are off-season right now, be ahead of the game and complete your edgy-chic look today by searching summer sales.
What I’m Wearing
Lately, I have seen this “star struck” embellished design EVERYWHERE!!! And I couldn’t help myself but jump on this remarkable trend. This Mixology blouse is extremely versatile because I can style it with a black skater skirt or I could wear it to the office by tucking it into a pair or work pants, or skinny black jeans. I included my favorite pair of boyfriend jeans and my comfy bralette underneath to create an effortlessly edgy look. If you want to shop this style, use my Mixology discount code (TiffTalk101.)
