Street style clothing is all about showing you don’t care, so you definitely don’t want to try too hard. To keep your aesthetic on point, wearing edgy streetwear well is a balancing act. You want to catch every eye in the room, but you don’t want to seem like you’re trying to get attention. Effortlessness is an important part of making sure your accessory game is on point. If you’re interested in edgy, ironic, and beautifully understated accessories to take your streetwear aesthetic to the next level, check out these pieces from AXCID Shop!
Racer Aesthetic Accessories
Checkered patterns have not seen such an intense revival since the trend of checkered Vans in the early 2000’s emo movement. Racer aesthetic is back, and it adds a hot accent to any edgy streetwear outfit. The checkerboard look goes well with anything, and it’s particularly effective on bags and other such functional accessories. Furthermore, racing flames have made a comeback. True fashion rebels have noticed its ability to create one of the edgiest streetwear aesthetics. If you want to turn heads without caring, this is definitely the pattern for you.
This is one trend that never really went away, and for good reason. Vintage sunglasses in all forms have added a level of freedom and eccentricity to streetwear since the 60’s. Huge and uniquely-shaped frames add the appearance of psychedelic insight to your streetwear look, and since you just have to slip them on as you head out the door, they give you the appearance of not caring what some high-fashion snob thinks of you. For one of the most timeless standards in streetwear aesthetics, you can't go wrong with vintage sunglasses!
Grunge and Punk Earrings
If you’re on this blog, odds are you’ve got roots in alternative culture. Even if you don’t, however, don’t be afraid to adopt some controversial styles! The punk and grunge scenes are the birthplace of many fashion staples that have made their way even into mainstream fashion, and we tend to create these statements without even trying. To pay homage to this abrasive subculture, an accent with a DIY feel, such as safety pin or chain earrings, can add that finishing touch to an effortless, edgy streetwear ensemble. A highly credible streetwear aesthetic choice, punk dangle earrings are sure to turn heads.
Mix and Match Styles
No matter what accessories are specifically you, you can benefit by borrowing from a lot of different styles, and who cares if they clash? Avocado socks with a flame choker? Go for it. Floral top with a checkered bag? Why not? Streetwear is all about subverting expectations, so dive right in.
