If you love the spunky and impossibly adorable fashion vlogger, Jenn Im (whose summer casual outfits can be found here), then you’ll love her equally fashionable, yet more edgy insta-sister, Eugenie Grey–because after all, opposites do attract. The chic pair has been spotted gleefully piggybacking each other and hanging out occasionally on Instagram, and just being two totally awesome Korean American trendsetters. I mean, just look how cute they are.

More famously known by her Instagram handle feralcreature, Eugenie Grey often channels a rock-and-roll persona that acts almost like an alter ego to Jenn Im’s sweet charm–but let’s be honest, we all want to be a little bad ass from time to time. So here’s how to be unapologetically “sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll” in the summer heat with the 5 top rocker-chic looks by feralcreature. Start practicing your mean muggin’ face.

 


 

1) Keeping it Bare
Put away those high-wasted shorts and expose your midriff. The zip-up cropped turtle neck paired with the black leather duo of the jacket and boots give the outfit that bad-ass edge, but revealing the midriff graces the ensemble with an overall soft and cool look.

2) Hang Loose
Let it flow by wearing loosely fit tanks and bottoms. The silhouette of the joggers gives the outfit a relaxed, summery vibe, but the leathery, “snake” effect will keep it on the edge. And don’t put away those beanies just because it’s summer–they give the perfect finish for a street-style look.

3) Black and Gold
All black and gold, and that’s that.

4) Add Some Color
If you need a little splash of something-something in an overall one-tone outfit, then throw a bright flannel around your waist to liven it up and wear lipstick to match.

5) Laced
You don’t have to lose your edge when you put on a dress. Simultaneously gritty yet elegant, this lacey, see-through dress channels vampire-goth vibes, but it will still keep you cool in the summer heat.
