{ How To Make Any Outfit Look Edgy }

intropia-oversized-gray-coat-how-to-make-an-outfit-look-edgy-gray-coat-with-black-distressed-jeans-gray-coat-fall-outfitHappy Friday, everyone! This week has flown by and since my husband and I both have Veterans’ Day off from work, we are spending the day together running some errands. We’re also getting ready for the arrival of my husband’s good friend on Saturday—he’ll be staying with us for a week and we have a lot of fun things planned, including a mini road trip through Italy!oversized-gray-wool-coat-with-black-jeans-and-gucci-belt-chanel-jumbo-classic-flap-bag-black-caviar-with-silver-hardwareI’m definitely not the most avant-garde blogger out there, and tend to lean more towards classic style, but I do like to incorporate edgy accents. The right accessories can take any basic outfit and make it a little more offbeat. Any of the following items are great for lending your look an edgier vibe—and you probably already have some of them on hand!

  • leather jacket {it works with just about anything}
  • distressed denim {jeans or a jacket}
  • leather leggings/skirt {black is always chic}
  • bandana {try wearing one as a neck scarf}
  • studded accessories {think bag, belt, or shoes}
  • belt with statement buckle {try one with a large buckle or western style}

    I’m not usually very edgy either, but every once in awhile it’s fun to fake it with some leather and studs. Your grey coat here is gorgeous!
