When I think of a ‘baddie’ I always think of badgalriri’s sense of fashion. She’s one female who can wear anything and still look good. One thing I know, she isn’t afraid to take fashion risks.
Since “Baddie” is where it’s at in our generation right now, here are some tips that will elevate your style to a typical baddie look….
GET A STEAL-THE-SHOW TOP
A top that stands out is going to be perfect. You want something that accentuates your best features with just the right amount of skin showing. (We just trynna keep it classy) LOL…But you get what I’m saying right? Something badass, conservative and unique is what we are going for. Just like I have on this mesh top…It’s a meshy top but not your regular meshy top. That’s where you gotta play your cards right. Instead, I chose a meshy top with a twist to it, adding complexity to the look.
Here are some badass tops that I love
RISK IT WITH STATEMENT BOTTOMS
Trust me when I tell you this…bottoms can make or break a look! To keep the baddie vibe going on, go for anything that looks interesting; you know, that conversation starter piece that gets all the stares. No you don’t have to go for shorts only and no they don’t have to be leather nor studded. I just used these shorts to put the look together because it gave me the look I was going for. If you love the shorts I will definitely try to link some similar ones.
A trend that I’ve been loving so much recently are those super distressed jeans! (With the thigh cut-outs and all). I think they are perfect for pulling off the high intensity grunge look we are going for. Not just jeans, we have some interesting skirts that are to die for.
Here are some very interesting ones…
INVEST IN kILLER SHOES
Yep! No pain no gain! You wanna be a baddie? Don’t ever think about the pain when wearing killer heels.
Just fake it till you make it! Shoes that tend to bring out a tough grunge look are mainly over-the-knee heels. Period. I can wear a T-shirt dress, an edgy choker and a pair of thigh high boots, and look ten times badder than me wearing a t-shirt dress and some sandals. Do you see what I’m saying? It’s like mixing a girly vibe with a grungy vibe and no that’s not how to be a baddie! Not to forget the trending perspex heels! What a great style enhancer! They just make your look interesting.
But Shaz, I never wear heels…Not a day in my life. What can I do?
Don’t worry girlie. It is still so many options for you. We got these Rihanna Puma creepers that can work just fine. If you don’t wanna splurge $120 for them, I will link some look alikes that are very affordable. Basically, any cute sneakers that bring out an edgy vibe should work perfectly fine.
Take a look at these ones…
Platform trainers (Same as Rihanna creepers)
TURN HEADS WITH YOUR NOT SO TYPICAL OUTERWEAR
I loooove outerwear so much. What I love the most is the layering technique in the chillier days which transforms a boring look. Right now though, we are not layering. We are looking at the ‘not so regular’ outerwear that take our outfit to a different level. Being that these long satin robe-like dusters are trending, I decided to pair this outfit with a black one for an overall monochrome look.
Oversized jackets, just like we have the oversized denim jackets trending, paired with any silhouette outfit underneath, brings out that fierce look. The bigger the better! It gives you an attitude. (Get men’s clothes) Shhhhh! You gotta do what you gotta do. 🙂
Take a look at my top picks:
INDULGE IN BOLD CHOKERS AND MID-RINGS
Stuck up on those mid-rings and chokers! For mid-rings, get the ‘throw away’ type, meaning cheap ones. They easily slip out and next thing you know, you have no rings. This is the kinda look I mean for wearing mid-rings, here (Your nails need to look bomb too) LOL

EXPERIMENT WITH YOUR HAIR
Thank God for weaves and wigs! I love the idea of a versatile hairstyle, and wigs give me just that! Knowing how I am, I get bored with one hairstyle so fast and so I change it 4 times out the week. Having wigs just gives you so many options that you wouldn’t have to worry about manipulating your real hair. You can dye wigs, get a short cut one, get the super long straight one or go for the curls. Just know you can never go wrong with artificial hair. 🙂

SLAY IN A BOLD LIP
FINALLY! What’s a bold look without a bold lip?? It’s all in the face honey. Beat your face, let your highlight pop, add a dark lippie and slay accordingly! Any dark lipstick; Dark plum, deep brown, burnt purple or even black itself should work just fine!
My makeup marathon segment is starting in October and I sure will hook you up with some dope places that I love buying my lippies FOR CHEAP! Ohh and a giveaway will be announced too:)
Congratulations for reaching this far and being one step closer from being the slaying goddess! That’s my little two cents and I hope it all made sense.. Remember;
Fashion is like an experiment, so take risks and have fun!
