Dress up for class without putting on a complicated outfit that involves lots of zippers and colors. Instead, stick to the basics with some ripped jeans, a white t-shirt, a black belt, and black combat boots. Complete the look with a leather jacket: a must have item for edgy style!

2. Edgy Outfit for Work/Internship

The workplace isn't necessarily the time to wear your leather jacket and boots (unfortunately), but that doesn't mean you can't wear clothes that still hint at an edgy style. Pair a dark colored blouse with your favorite business pants and heels. You can also try to add some edgy elements to your look if your workplace is more relaxed -- think jewelry, belts, or fun jackets. You can even wear a leather pencil skirt to change things up! 

3. Edgy Outfit for Hanging Out with Friends

For a low key Saturday with the gals, this edgy outfit is perfect. Simply grab a form-fitting shirt, black jeans, and Converse. Pair the combo with a chic but edgy hat to complete the look. Despite this relatively easy to put together outfit, your friends will think you're the coolest girl in town. 

4. Edgy Outfit for Going Out

For a night on the town in edgy fashion, try grabbing a vintage band T-shirt or any graphic tee that you love. Pair it with shorts and cute heeled booties. Tie a flannel around your waist to finish the look. If it's a bit colder where you live, wear black tights under your shorts and wear your flannel like a jacket. 

5. An Edgy Take on Formalwear
