Living on (Straight) Edge

I like to think that when it comes to my personal style, that I have an edge to it. I wouldn't call myself or my style edgy, but I like to think of it as classic with an edge. I like wearing classic silhouettes or classic pieces with something to toughen it up a little bit. Whether it's boots or a leather jacket, I like to add an edge to my outfits. Is it weird to say I like to look like a "bad" (for lack of a better word) girl without actually being one?

I mean, I don't like to party or drink or smoke or most things that people my age like to do. I'm pretty straight edge but I feel like when you dress edgy, you can give off the impression that you aren't. 

However, while I do not consider my style edgy, I do have a couple edgy outfits. Like this one. I had so much fun with it because I own a purple crop top courtesy of Express (I won a contest at work and my prize was a free outfit), and I really wanted to incorporate it into an outfit that could work for a more casual setting (the top was marketed as a New Year's Eve party type of top). 

It was just a fun outfit because it wasn't something that I wouldn't normally wear but still liked, and I felt so cool in it, haha.
