ALL IN THE DETAILS: Elegantly Edgy

ALL IN THE DETAILS: Elegantly Edgy

Details can make the simplest outfit pop. Something I’ve been into recently are rock band shirts and lace up graphic tees. These shirts give an old classic a revived look. These outfits are perfect for a night out or even a music festival. I’ve noticed more and more fashionistas on campus rocking this very edgy and chic look. As pictured, a vintage shirt can make something ordinary, a little more daring. These shirts can be purchased at many boutiques in Southern California, or online on Forever 21. Fashionistas can pair the top with a lace bralette rather than a regular bra since these shirts often have a bit of an opening.

A pair of black skinny jeans with ripped knee holes show off a very edgy, yet minor distressed look. Black skinny jeans may be paired with almost anything and everything. Whether it’s a peplum top or a vintage rock band shirt, black skinny jeans look flattering on everyone. Investing in a good pair of jeans are essential in every fashionista’s closet.

Bangles add a little bling and splash of color to any outfit as well. Alex and Ani’s are great bracelet bangles that can be stacked for some major arm candy. Alex and Ani’s allow the wearer to show off their unique personality, dangling various charms to represent you. Additionally, these bracelets make for great gifts and collectibles. They’re unique, affordable, and match any outfit. Alex and Ani’s come in gold or silver, and mixing metals is so in.

Chokers are also a great way to add some extra pizzaz to any edgy outfit. Chokers can be worn in various sizes, fitting almost any outfit. Whether it’s a thick velvet choker, or a dainty gold choker necklace, you’re sure to stand out. They’re also a great addition to any festival outfit (hint hint, festival season is on its way!).

And of course, the shoes. Booties match practically any outfit. Whether it’s with a T-shirt dress, jeans, or distressed shorts, booties are almost always my go-to. They can be bought at various stores in multiple colors and heel heights. Many of which have little detailing in themselves such as an embroidered-on rose patch, or sleek metal detailing (as pictured).
