I would never describe myself as an edgy person — I doubt you’ll soon see me sporting leather spiked cuffs — but there is something inherently cool about a somewhat edgy outfit. Right? Especially if you’re a mom. Well at 21 weeks pregnant (at the time this photo was taken) I was feeling like proving to myself I still have it.
To me, introducing leather — both of the vegan or real variety — into any outfit can instantly bring a modern cool and effortless edginess effect to the whole ensemble.
This outfit is about as basic and minimal as it gets with: an oversized sheer tunic, leggings and ankle boots. By adding a cropped moto jacket to the mix I’ve not only added texture, I’ve introduced a new vibe. Subtle yes, but subtly is the goal here. I’m proving something to myself, not to all the teenagers in angst of my high school days.
Ah, who am I kidding ? We’re all cow poke out here.
What were we talking about again? Oh yeah, currently there are several great ways you can easily add an inkling of edgy into your wardrobe: leather jacket, leather leggings, leather boots, leather bag, the list goes on.
So bring it.
On a completely unrelated note: Tunics really know how to mask a bump don’t they?
What do you think about adding edge to an outfit with leather/faux leather?
