As pumpkin spice lattes, flannel, and leggings usher in the beloved fall season, some other notable Instagram trends also mark this time of year. You are far from alone if you wind up posting pics of filtered foliage, standing on dead leaves in the new boots you got on Black Friday, your PSL, the perfect pumpkin in the pumpkin patch, or all of the above.
But the real question is, how can you IG yourself crunching dead leaves in ugg boots and still be edgy? Well, we’re here to tell you.
1. Be a risk taker
Leave your house with the pumpkin spice candles burning. Live your life on the edge. Be bold. Let fate have some wiggle room to work with.
2. Go against the trends
Go on Pinterest, see what fall hair colors are in…and do the opposite. You’re #Wild.
3. Get a tattoo
Get a tattoo on your thigh. Wrist tattoos are too mainstream. Neck tattoos are a bit much, but a thigh tattoo shows you’re okay with making some questionable decisions. We recommend a Day of the Dead pinup if you want to be super edgy.
4. No small talk…get to the heart of the matter
You’re edgy. You don’t have time for small talk. It’s your job to call out the BS. Ask everyone their greatest fears, what they believe the meaning of life is, and why they’re here on earth.
5. Be disagreeable
Disagree with them no matter what their answer is. This will assert you as a leader, not a follower. Be a contrarian and be about the opposite of whatever others are saying and doing.
If you follow through with steps one through five, you can easily get away with posting IG pics of yourself crunching dead leaves in ugg boots and still avoid being a basic b!%@#.
