Edgy Fall Fashion Perfect for the Punk Lover at Heart


Whether it’s in the form of metal details, leather straps, or an interesting silhouette, sometimes you just need a little edginess in your life. Mainstream fall fashion usually focuses on the classics. From preppy to posh, there’s not much left for the woman who prefers darker, edgier, or alternative items in her wardrobe. Fortunately, we’ve done the legwork for you, and have produced several chic pieces that we’re sure will be favorites among edgy fashionistas.

Take a peek at our picks below and get ready to be inspired for fall!


This gorgeous lace bell sleeve top from Free People is reminiscent of a gothic era gone by. Perfect for times when you need to dress up, like date night, birthdays, and other special occasions, this top would look great paired with a black skintight pencil skirt, tights, and sexy booties.


Stylecaster’s team knows that plaid is in for fall, and what better way to add a little feminine edge to your wardrobe than with this tartan skirt from Burberry Brit. Perfectly embellished with a pair of buckles, this kilt-like piece will look great paired with thigh-high socks, Mary Jane shoes, and your favorite sweater for a little dose of schoolgirl chic.


Whether you prefer edgier looks or a classic approach, a cute pair of ankle boots is a must-have in any wardrobe. We love this pair from H&M for alternative dressing thanks to the platform bottom and side zip detail. Wear them with skinny jeans, leather pants, knee-high and thigh-high socks, and especially skirts and dresses this season to really show them off.


Lyst shows off fall wear inspired by punk culture, which results in one seriously unique sweatshirt. The black mockneck from Gosha Rubchinskiy almost has a cape-like appearance, thanks to the elongated hem and wide silhouette created by the double cuff arms. Pair this casual sweatshirt with your favorite distressed skinny jeans and combat boots. Include a red tartan plaid scarf for a pop of color and extra warmth.


Editors at Who What Wear have already predicted the popularity of the grommet trend. These little metal eyelets are adorning everything from pants to purses. Perfect for the edgy dresser, we are huge fans of the platform grommet slip-on sneaker from Steve Madden. Not only is this a practical piece for fall, but it’s fashionable, unique, and looks really comfy, too. Wear these with skinny jeans, wide leg pants, and even skirts, dresses, and shorts paired with tights.
