With the dark colors, moody prints, and bold makeup looks that inevitably start to crop up once the first leaf of autumn falls, I often find myself wanting to add a little more edge to my everyday outfits. Some tartan here, some Mick Jagger jeans there, a splash of black leather for good measure, and voila, a look with a hint of baddass.
Along with this gravitation towards edginess comes another desire—rock-star-status body jewelry. I already have my ears and belly button done, but I often entertain fantasies of adding a cute but subtle nose study or Monroe. Of course, with another piercing comes a lot of decisions—where to put it, what kind of jewelry to use, how to care for it, which studio to go to. Luckily there’s a wealth of information on just such topics from Fresh Trends, which takes a lot of the anxiety out of the decision. Ultimately, I’m not sure when, where, or if I’ll ever get another piercing, but it‘s fun to think about.
So tell me, does fall turn you into a rebel without a cause as well? Do you have piercings, or are you thinking about getting some?
