Five (5) rocking ways to make your look more edgy

Hello everyone!

If you are looking for ways to make your look a little more edgy, you have come to the right place. Just check out the easy-to-follow guide below. 


Throw on a leather jacket. 


Adding a leather jacket to almost any outfit will increase the edge factor. The brilliant thing is that a leather jacket will look just as good with jeans and a T-shirt as with a floral dress. And even when paired with something super girly like a tulle skirt!

However, know that you must get a leather jacket that fits well and complements your body type. Often, leather biker jackets that sit on the waist are the best option because they provide an edgy look while also accentuating your figure. 

Try a striking haircut. 


No rock chic would be seen dead without a striking haircut to match her attitude, so if you want to add some edge to your look, it may be time for a trip to the salon. 


There are two main things you can do to give your hairstyle more edge: get a new cut or add some bright or unexpected colour. Consider shaggy styles like the wolf cut or a pixie, which look unkempt but cool. For colour, a drastic change such as going platinum blond or ink black can work, although bright rainbow colours all over or in sections will also do the job. 


Consider a piercing. 


Another way to add some edge to everything you wear, including your pyjamas, is to get a piercing. After all, they are designed to be worn constantly and not taken out, even for sleep. One of the most popular piercings is a labret piercing that sits underneath the bottom lip, either in the middle or to the side. The great thing about this type of piercing is that you can get some great lip piercing jewelry to wear in this location. This allows you to change up your look once it's fully healed. 


Rock a chunky boot. 


Online and in stores, chunky boots are everywhere right now, and this is indeed a blessing for those of you looking to craft an edgier look. Like a leather jacket, throwing on chunky boots with feminine styles like flowery dresses will give your look instant edge and style cred. You can pair a chunky boot with any outfit to transform it into a grunge smash hit.


Perfect your eyeliner game. 


Lastly, if you want to achieve a genuinely edgy, grunge style, using eyeliner with almost every outfit you wear may work wonders. Of course, you need to figure out what type of eyeliner suits you and the look you are going for. Although two good places to start are the smokey eyeliner look and the eyeliner flick.

The good news is that both looks are not as hard to achieve as you may think. For the smokey look, find a black eye pencil and go along your top and bottom lids, then smudge with a makeup applicator or with your finger. For eyeliner flicks, make things easy on yourself and cheat with eyeliner felt tip pens and stamping kits for a fast and even edgy look. 

With these simple tips, you can transform your style and add a touch of edginess to your look. Whether by experimenting with bold hair and makeup styles, getting a piercing, or incorporating statement pieces into your wardrobe, this guide will help you achieve the edgy aesthetic you desire.
