How to toughen up a girly outfit

Most of us already know how to style a perfectly girly or flirty dress. It’s pretty easy! Walk into a store, grab a dress with ruffles, or lace or in a pretty color; add some heels and done!

However, if this is not your style, you are probably on a look out for ways to elevate or toughen up your outfits. If you are like me, you probably have more of a “bad-assy” kinda style than a “flirty girly” style. I love a great dress, but if I am not going to a wedding, or gala, I would rather be seen in an outfit with a little bit of an edge. Here are some tips on how to toughen up a flirty girly dress.

  • A leather jacket is my number one go-to for an edgy look. It instantly adds some bad ass vibes.  Warning: This may be dangerous in those hot summer months!
  • Add some gladiator heels or combat boots, pretty much any footwear that can also be used as a weapon or makes you look like you are prepping for battle
  • Killer shades! We all have those  sunnies that make us look super sleek and fierce. If you don’t, what have you been wearing when you think you might have a chance encounter with an ex? Get this pair now, it’s $8 !!!
