I've talked about this a ton of times on the blog before, but I love creating outfits with interesting juxtapositions, so this date night outfit that mixed feminine and edgy was a total win in my book. But pulling off this look, or finding feminine and edgy pieces that go well together can be a little tricky. 

Let's talk about how to get your mix of feminine and edgy just right

First, keep your feminine pieces neutral and subtle. A pink bag is super feminine, but adding it to this outfit would feel out of place and too feminine. Instead, add those girly vibes more subtly through lace, flowy and floaty tops, or glitzy jewelry. This clad and cloth top is perfect for this look because it's so feminine and beautiful, but neutral enough that you could take it in any style direction. 

Second, add distressed denim. I wear distressed denim all the time anyway, but adding a dark pair of distressed jeans instantly adds an edgy vibe to your look. But to keep the outfit still feminine, make them a skinny, fitted pair to show off those long stems. 

Third, it's all about the shoesShoes can make or break your outfit, in my opinion. So if you're going for an edgy feel, make sure your shoes throw off that vibe as well. Anything with straps, spikes, laces, or studs feel edgy to me, but heels feel super feminine. So the combination of the two is just the right mix to make your outfit feel feminine and edgy!
