Posted November 3, 2019 by in Fashion

Do you want to add an edgier flair to your look? Perhaps you just want to spice things up a little, or you’re sick of your style being boring. Whatever the case may be, below you can find eight things you can do to create edgier looks.

Take a look and you’ll have some new style ideas in no time!

Add Hardware To Your Look

Hardware can be the perfect addition to any look. Grab some chain earrings or chain layered necklaces and they will go a long way to making your look edgier. Chunky belts with metal accents also work really well.

Anything that brings a little metal and edge into your outfit will work!

Don’t Always Go OTT

You don’t always need to do the absolute most with your look to appear edgier, so don’t go OTT. Just add one subtle accent, especially to begin with, and you’ll be surprised at how it can make you look edgier.

For example, a statement ear cuff or ring with a fairly plain outfit.

Layer Your Clothes To Make Them More Interesting

Layering your clothes is a great trick for the cooler months, and it instantly makes your style more interesting. This is why you should always consider whether something can be layered and how you will do it when you buy it.

A long cardigan can look great over other pieces, as can an oversized sweater and your favorite long skirt. The rule to layering is that you should incorporate different colors and textures so that you don’t look like you’re wearing a shapeless, boring outfit.

Add Texture 

Following on from the last point; texture should be incorporated in some way in every outfit that you wear. You can incorporate texture by wearing a bag with tassels, a faux leather skirt with a cotton t-shirt, a shaggy cardigan, or something else that brings interest to your look.

Wearing pieces of the same materials, even when not layering, can look very same-y and boring.

Wear A Hat

Hats are a brilliant addition to most outfits. Panama hats can add an instant element of cool, and baker boy hats are very popular at the moment. Even cowboy hats can work well and look incredible – click here to check some options out.

Try Editorial Style Makeup

Forget contouring, crease cuts, and all that jazz when it comes to your makeup. Why not try more fashion editorial style looks? This could be a simple bold line of color across your lid somewhere, or even an unusual shape drawn on. Editorial looks are always interesting and unique!

Challenge Gender Rules

Don’t be afraid to challenge gender rules! It’s what the world needs. Wear oversized shirts, baggy t-shirts and trousers, and mix other pieces from men’s clothes with your own wardrobe.

Men’s clothing can be especially great for oversized pieces and having a cool laid back vibe.

Personalize Your Own Clothes

Why not personalize your own clothes? There are loads of easy things you can do to some of your old stuff to make it more interesting and wearable again. For example, you could add some cool patches to a denim or military jacket or even jeans. You could also tie-dye a few boring pieces to see how they turn out.

You can get as creative as you like; grating jeans to create holes, cutting off sleeves – have fun with it!
