Edged Out

The edgy styles of 2009 are a modern take on 80s rocker and 90s grunge looks. They're daring, striking and full of sexy attitude!

These edgy looks usually consists of things like leather, fringe, metal jewelry and embellishments, ripped fabric, faded denim, graphic patterns and both body conscious and loose-fitting clothing.

With looks this bold, particularly if it's not your usual style, doing too much at once may end up looking a little too contrived so it's important to do it in moderation.

If you want to do say, three pieces at once, one of them can be a major statement piece while making the other two more subtle.
Or perhaps every piece can be somewhat subtle but they work together to make one attention-grabbing outfit.

When you have found a style that works for you, you can then try to experiment with some more adventurous looks.

If you're looking to edge up your wardrobe, here are some cool, affordable pieces I found:

Warehouse Fringed Longline Vest
Price: UK
£40.00 (US$67.40)

H81 Electric Pole Tank
Price: US$10.90
