Edgy Exec

Tribe leather jacket

What does it mean to dress “edgy”? It is when a part of your outfit (or all, if you dare) has a modern, urban vibe…it can be a creative touch, something unexpected, mixing styles…..wearing a lot of black is considered ‘edgy’, as is leather….Some other options: embellished boots, buckle details, studs, lacing details, animal prints.  For hair styles, a controlled messy look or a piecey look (using product) adds ‘edge’……When you are dressing for business, adding one or two edgy components keeps you looking current, avoids looking dated or dowdy.

This dress was a great find at Revolve a few months back….it is Red Valentino, known for a sweet, feminine look….rather than wearing it with classic pumps and a traditional jacket, I prefer to balance the sweetness with some urban vibe, a leather jacket, and edgy yet elegant shoes…..

leopard shoe Found these fabulous shoes at Saks in New York when holiday shopping….they are calf hair, the name of them: “Ginger Leopard”! How could I resist?….Because of the generous round toe and block heel they are quite comfortable and they are versatile enough to wear weekend casual or for a night on the town!

I am feelin’ edgy and loving it!  How about YOU?
