Edgy Personal Style Archetype
This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.
This archetype is one of my favorites because it’s just so much fun to look at (and wear)! Edgy looks are usually very high fashion – the types of clothing that you typically see in fashion magazine editorials. Leather, spikes, sharp cuts & edges, fitted, black & white neutrals – got the picture? These looks can be rock-ish, but are really a bit more…well…edgy! 😉 An edgy look is probably harder to pull off on a daily basis, but you can definitely have fun with from time to time!
Edgy Style Archetype – Celebrities & Designers
Style icons who personify this archetype include Rihanna (I think she’s the #1 style icon in this category hands down!), Kristen Stewart, and Angelina Jolie in her earlier years. Fashion designers/houses & brands that best represent this style category are Tom Ford, Balmain, Alexander McQueen, Rick Owens, Ann Demeulemeester, Altuzarra…the list goes on and on! Even a couple of more ‘classic’ fashion houses such as Givenchy and Yves Saint Laurent also dab in edgy looks quite often and it always works!
