I’ve always wanted to be bad, even if it were just for a day. Whenever I see girls pulling off an edgy leather jacket or a top with studded shoulders I can’t help but to look with envy. I’ve always wished I could channel Olivia Newton John in Grease as “Bad Sandy” circa 1978. The effortless, well executed and relatively understated look exudes an “I’m cool” attitude.  And the designers agree! Diesel’s Black Gold fall 2011 collection gives us a plethora of edgy pieces to lust over!

This Fashionista was spotted on her walk to class sporting her own variation of this trend.  Her outfit seems simple at first glance but once you take a better look, you’ll see that it is a well thought out ensemble. Check out her dark chocolate leather jacket contrasted against her black skinnies and blue and black flannel. The choice of a mismatched color is a subtle touch that conveys the “bad” theme. To add a feminine touch she wears silver posts on her ears and her hair is loosely styled.

Her look is simple and relaxed, perfect for sitting through class or meeting friends for lunch. Her studded flats finish off the intended look. The black and gold spiked shoes tie the outfit together for a casual but also edgy look. Try this trend on for size by getting a pair of these Rock & Republic flats in a various shades. If you think you can only pull this look off at night check out the Sam Edelman booties I’ve been lusting over. If you want something that is more fitting for a college student budget take a look at this pair from Topshop. Whether you’re a seasoned pro at executing an edgy look or an amateur like me, keep your outfit simple and let the spiky shoes do all the talking!
