If you’re looking for a little pick me up in your classic wardrobe, an easy way to add edge is through accessories. Edgy accessories take the most classic pieces (like this white collared shirt, and boot cut jeans) to a whole new level. All of a sudden your style has a new “rock star” feel, and commands attention. If this is a look you are attracted to, there are a few things that make edgy accessories easily identifiable:
1. Edgy Accessories are usually made out of leather, metal, and stones
2. Edgy Colours tend to be purple, red, black, gray
3. Keep these words in mind: studs, skulls, chains, sharp lines, chunky
Look for cuffs, earrings, bracelets, rings, necklaces, shoes, bags, belts… really any of your usual favourite accessory pieces will do!
If you’re not sure if these types of accessories are for you, but would like to give them a go, you may want to head to really inexpensive stores to find a few pieces to try. If you don’t spend a lot on the individual pieces, you can try wearing them a few times, and toss them if they don’t feel quite right. Aldo Accessories andH&M are both good places to start.
