STYLE ADVICE: Effortlessly Edgy

February 3rd, 2017 at 2:10am

Have you ever been scrolling through Instagram and come across someone that made looking edgy and stylish so easy and you just could not understand how? I feel this way at least once a day, and when I saw this Fashionista, there was no exception.

First of all, leather. What screams edgy more than leather? Nothing! Pairing a classic black leather jacket with any outfit is guaranteed to give it edge. Our Fashionista polished her look off with dark skinny jeans, amazing jewelry, and the most amazing boots to ever grace this planet. My favorite part about this outfit is the mixture of textures (leather, metal, denim, velvet, and embroidery) and how they all seem to naturally flow together.

To get a simple and edgy look, start with what’s most simple: denim. Depending on what your preferences are you could go with a regular dark pair of skinnies like this Fashionista, or take it to the next level with a destroyed pair. Honestly, any denim will work.

Next, layering on jewelry is one of the easiest ways to spice up any outfit. Crystal and stone jewelry is in right now and it also gives any look an effortless feel. Do not be shy when it comes to jewelry. Sometimes we just have to accept that more is more.

Last, but certainly not least, is going to be your choice of footwear. If you can find a pair of velvet, embroidered booties like the ones this Fashionista is wearing, seize that opportunity! These booties really tie the look together and give it that extra edge. However, I know we’re not all fortunate enough to be blessed with velvet booties, but any pair will work just as well. If booties aren’t your thing, a pair of Converse will give your outfit the same feel.

Overall, wear what makes you feel good. Just throw on that leather jacket and wear your confidence on your sleeve!
