Rebel/grunge style type

Don’t be like the rest of them darling.
— Coco Chanel
 

YOU ARE:

Dark, mysterious, urban. Resistant of the establishment, you are your own person. You are a free-thinker and do not follow fashion trends, you wear whatever you please. You don’t care what anyone thinks of your look. You don’t try to be appropriately dressed like the Classic/Preppy type. You love shock value.

LOOK:

Creative, unusual and unique.

YOU WANT:

Freedom and comfort.

COMFORTABLE IN:

Skinny jeans, a worn-in tee and a beanie.

CLOTHING TYPES:

Incorporating designer clothes or not, you create your own look with anything you purchase. Retro items, old school accessories, vintage finds, pierced accessories, rough leather, studs and chains, fringe, slouchy cuts. Pair clothing of different looks and styles that no one else would ever put together. Any style works for you as long as it is your own.

we recommend:

COLORS:

Palette includes any colors mixed with lots of darks—black, gray, navy—and simple white. Plaid, pinstripes, animal prints, big stripes, snakeskin, leather.

GREAT PIECES TO INVEST IN:

Ripped jeans, skinny jeans and leggings, black skinny jeans (styles like coated, mineral-washed, shredded, or plain), shredded denim shorts, mini skirts, oversized skirts, old-school rock T-shirts, concert tees, neutral tees, corset tops, flannel shirts, boyfriend sweaters, schoolboy blazer, bomber jacket, denim jacket, motorcycle jacket, little vest, little grunge dresses (skater cuts, floral patterns, or lace or velvet).

we recommend:

Chunky boots, edgy boots with details like cutouts or knee-high lace-up or studs, canvas sneakers, rock star sunglasses, a signature hat (such as Panama or bowler), unusual tights, tattoos, piercings.

we recommend:

KEY:

Mix in a feminine touch—layered bangles, a peek of lace, delicate necklaces, pretty knits, the color pink, glamorous hair—to soften the effect.

JEWELRY:

Edgy, unusual and often tough-looking like a big woven chain necklace, studded bangles, skull ring, black bracelet or black chunky necklace.

MAKEUP:

Little makeup or heavy, sloppily applied makeup. Smudgy eye shadow, dark lipstick.

HAIR:

Edgy, unique hair—maybe messy or asymmetrical or short or uniquely colored.

ELEGANT:

Go for an edgy or mysterious twist on your dress-up looks, in a simple palette of white or black.

CAREER:

Apparent by your love of studs, leather, and a tattoo or two. Suited to created industries, music or nightlife.
