To quote K-pop group Aespa, “Oh My Gosh! Don’t you know I’m a savage?” There’s no denying that there’s simply something different about a “bad girl look.” But what defines the “baddie aesthetic?” Don’t worry, you don’t need to be a real-life pasaway to pull this style off!
What Is a Baddie Outfit?
When you think of a killer ‘fit, you immediately think of the color black. But it’s not just the color that defines a “bad girl” look. TBH, it’s a lot more nuanced than just wearing black from head to toe. The key to nailing this style is the way you pair certain pieces together. Whether you want to look bad in a “sleek”, “oversized”, or “sexy” outfit, it’s all about balancing looking glammed up but cool at the same time.
To help you visualize, take a look at the styles of influencer Ida Anduyan, model Hailey Bieber, and actress Shay Mitchell, to name a few! Though we can’t say that their styles are exactly identical, they all share that same classy, sexy, and covetable nonchalance that screams baddie with a capital B.
