Yesterday my sister and I spent a day shopping and checking out the latest clothing trends. One thing that had us initially laughing were some of the “crazy” clothing that were in mainstream stores, but as we saw more and more of it we realized that the edgy clothing trend has become a crossover look.

Now I doubt you’ll see many people wearing lace leggings to work but you may see some people you wouldn’t expect wearing them for a night on the town. You also probably won’t see a lot of shredded jeans but heavily distressed jeans will continue to rise in popularity.

But there are deeper ramifications of edgy clothing going mainstream, on the plus side it means fashion will be pushing more boundaries and hopefully by doing so there will be new trends rather than the typical recycling of old trends. But on the down side, where will all those “edgy” people go for their fashion fixes? Unfortunately, the answer to that question is they will typically begin to undress to shock, which normally isn’t a good thing. No one really wants underwear to be treated like outerwear again, it just looks tacky.
