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 shoes. Shoes 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!
Clad and Cloth has tons of gorgeous feminine pieces that would work perfectly in an edgy/feminine outfit. Today they’re giving away $50 to their shop, so you can win a beautiful piece and then style it in this fun way!

I love the sandals!
I ordered their Tres Bien tshirt after finding their brand on your site – I love it!
I like to call my style “girly badass” which is pretty much the same as feminine and edgy…so naturally I love this outfit!

I love it, such a rad look. How do you like the Jeans? I’ve been curious about that brand for awhile. How is the rise?
I LOVE them. They’re super comfortable. The rise is higher than I normally wear, but it doesn’t really bother me. But they do have a low rise option too!
Those sandals are beautiful. Are they pretty comfortable – or comfortable enough for high heels?

They’re about as tall as I go for high heels, so they’re not super comfortable to walk in cause they’re so tall, but if you are good at walking in 4 1/2 inch heels, then they’ll be great for you 🙂
Thank you so much for the tutorial on this bag!! I’m a sucker for a good DIY and I’m so excited to try to make my own fold over clutch!! Love your blog- you always have the best content!!
