Necessary clothing pieces for an 'EDGY' wardrobe:

  • Skinny Jeans
    Skinny Jeans go with everything. They go with flowy, tight, cropped, thigh length shirts. And any kind/length of jacket looks great. Make sure you find several pairs that fit well. Tight(but not suffocating), long(but not so much that they don't fit), and comfy(who wants to walk around in uncomfortable clothes all day?). Even better if they have minor(fading) or major(ripping) distressed accents. And if you find them in an awesome color... You're set!
  • Boots
    I have a pair that I wear with every outfit. I love them. Boots go with everything, dresses, jeans, shorts, skirts, leggings... Find a pair you love, in a style you love, wear with something you love, and viola!
  • Leather Jacket
    Leather jackets are tough, but can be girly, or boho, or really any style. For example, buying a tough, black one with studs is going to give off a 'don't mess with me, I will kick your sorry butt' feel, and a brown one with fur, that is a little more pliable is going to look a little boho-ish. But a cropped one with a girly charm on each zipper is going to look tough, but still send a major 'I'm sweet.' message.
  • Black(or any color) mini skirt.
    What's so cool about a mini skirt is it can be ANY style you want. But since I'm doing edgy right now, that is what I am going to focus on. For summer you can wear the skirt with a tank top, an old t-shirt, a button down, or a crop top. In the winter put leggings or tights under, and wear a fabulous leather jacket or boyfriend cardigan in a neutral color, or a bright eye catching color like red or even silver!
  • Cutoffs
    Like a mini skirt you can wear cutoffs any time. They look super cute with fishnets or colored tights. Neon leggings would be bright, fun, and unexpected. For school tone it down with black leggings or basically colored cropped leggings.
  • Rock/Faded/Vintage Tee
    Super cool looking, a conversation starter, and if it is old... Super soft and comfy!
  • Tunic
    Tunics have a laid back feel, and can come in a bunch of different styles and patters. If you have a super loose one, belt it, to accentuate your waist.
  • Unique Belt
    What better way to show individuality and originality that with a cool belt. Search for ones at second hand/thrift stores, or your mom's from when she was younger. They are especially cool if the buckle has some sort of design or shape that no one else will have.

-Hats are fun and good for keeping warm or just looking cute, but don't put a hat on, just cause. If your outfit is already busy with stripes rips, and a fringed floral bag, hold off on the floppy hat, maybe go for a simple beanie or solid beret, or even none at all.
-Jewelry: When piling on necklaces have some or all at different lengths. Chains look super cool, especially when they are different widths, but if you have a busy outfit don't put on a lot of jewelry, and if you have an insanely cool, yet still insane amount of necklaces and bracelets, don't but on the chandelier earrings. Sometimes, just cause you can, doesn't mean you should wear every possible amount of jewelry, on every possible place.

Happy fashioning!
