15 Edgy Outfits to Add to Your Winter Wardrobe

A new season means a new set of outfit requirements, which, for some, can actually turn out to be quite an adjustment. After months of relying on easy summer dresses, tank tops, loose, lightweight linen, and skin-baring sandals, altering your thought process when piecing together a fall (or winter) look can be tricky. The cold-weather season calls for pieces rendered in heavier fabrics like wool, cashmere, denim, and cotton; of course, layering is another essential. That being said, it can be easy to feel as though you're losing your signature style under layers upon layers of clothing. Enter: 15 edgy winter outfits ideas that are as cool and expressive as they seem cozy, practical, and cold-weather ready.

Whether it's grounding a wintertime look with the ultimate edgy shoes (a pair of buckled and studded ankle boots) or sporting head-to-toe leather (it doesn't get edgier than that), these are the edgy winter outfits you can turn to (and emulate) the next time you're in a styling rut.
