If you love edgy outfits and people with an edgier sense of style, this post is for you. If you want to channel that style but you’re not quite sure how, these tips will help you. Take a look and see if any of them can work for you:
Make a Pinterest Board
If you’re completely unsure of where to start, make a Pinterest board to give you some inspiration. It’s really easy to do; you can do it on the computer or with the app. Simply add ‘edgy’ outfits that you love and would like to recreate yourself. When you go shopping, or open up your wardrobe, you’ll be able to use the outfits as inspiration. You’ll never be stuck for what to wear!
Play With Texture
Texture is the key to making your style look more 3 dimensional and less flat. Texture always adds interest to a look. Tassels and fringing is really popular, but you can also go for studs. There are rips, frays, and so many more textures that can make you look edgier too. All you have to do is have a play and see what works for you!
Use Jewelry to Make a Statement
Jewelry is a great way to add a little ‘oomph’ to your outfits and make a statement. Choose a few statement pieces, such as a choker necklace or a statement ring. You can layer different pieces to create different looks, or just wear one noticeable piece. You can even use body jewelry, like in a belly button piercing. Piercings are a great way to funk up your look!
Step Outside of Your Comfort Zone
Why not step out of your comfort zone with your style? You might like it! If you’re used to wearing a certain color or pattern, change it. Try something you like but feel too afraid to wear. This can make you feel more confident in your style and encourage you to try even more new things.
Utilise Black Clothes
Black clothes have always been the edgiest of the colors. Black is effortless, and looks the most mysterious. It’s slimming, and looks good on just about anybody too! Just make sure you include texture, as mentioned before, to stop the outfit from looking plain and boring.
Wear Asymmetrical Items
Asymmetrical items look really cool. Tops and dresses in an asymmetrical style will create interest in your look, so try them out and see what you think. They might look strange on the hanger, but try them on and you’ll see!
Above all else, you need to remember to stay true to yourself. Don’t wear anything that makes you feel really uncomfortable, or not like yourself. Only wear things you love, and take it slowly. It’s important that you’re not trying to be anybody else here. Just the best version of yourself. Eventually, you’ll be putting some really cool outfits together with these tips. People might even start to come to you for fashion advice! Leave your thoughts below.
