You’re one badass lady, and it’s time your style reflected that. To get the edgy, street chic look that we’re seeing everywhere on celebrities and runways, you need a few style essentials to rock your world. Work with these six essentials and make them your own—and don’t forget the kickass attitude, because that’s just as important to pulling this look off. Move over fashionistas, because there’s a sexy new rocker chic look in town and it’s pulling all the punches.
- Skinny Jeans
Skinny jeans are a girl’s best friend, no matter your style type. They’re flattering (hey, skinny is in the name!) and versatile, working from casual daytime chic to a fun night out. To get the edgy look, opt for all-black jeans, rips and tears, or as faded as can be. Pair them with a looser fit top to strike the right balance—you don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard.’
- Leather Jacket
Leather jackets have been a rocker symbol since the dawn of time—okay, well the dawn of rock and roll at least. Make them work for you by investing in a fitted, faux leather jacket that works with a few different getups. We love the look of a studded, badass-looking jacket paired with a girly, flouncy dress and boots, or a pretty skirt and wedges. The juxtaposition of the two will make you look so chic and eye-catching.
Edgy fashionistas know the key to maintaining an edgy look is to ramp up the mystery factor and your street cred. This is where sunglasses come in. They’re the cherry on top of an already badass look, and shroud your eyes so only you know who you’re checking out (because let’s face it, we all do it). If you’re looking for the exact right pair, Bailey Nelson has one-of-a-kind looks that will blow you away—you probably won’t be able to pick just one pair.
Boots are a rocker staple. Walk the talk in flat or heeled booties that show everyone that you wouldn’t be caught dead in delicate kitten heels. We love studded boots, lace-up, tasselled, or scuffed boots that look like they’ve seen an interesting life. Again, pair them with something feminine for an awesome contrasting look.
- Chunky Jewellery
No strands of pearls or delicate gold chains to see here—we love the look of chunky jewellery that demands to be noticed, and the more the merrier. Accessorize with big rings, two or three bracelets at a time, and statement necklace that stands out.
- Flannel Shirt
Plaid flannel shirts are so trendy right now but they’re an essential rocker chic item. Pair it with leggings and boots with a denim jacket on top, tie it around your waist over shredded jean shorts and tights, or wear it over a feminine dress with combat boots. The choice is yours to rock, sister.
