Baddie style is a modern way of dressing characterized by an ostentatious blend of clothing, footwear, and accessories with minimalist aesthetics from high-end and streetwear brands to depict an edgy and luxurious lifestyle.
The style is marked by statement pieces such as cropped tops, bodycon dresses, high-waisted jeans, athleisure wear, velvet or faux-fur jackets, designer sneakers or Louboutin heels, accessorized with designer sunglasses, handbags, and jewelry.
The Baddie look makes a statement about personal strength and success by depicting a strong self-image, confidence, empowerment, and a luxurious but informal lifestyle.
