ACCESSORIES REPORT: Paint the Town Magenta

It’s only natural for a Fashionista/o to gravitate towards basic pieces when the June gloom subsides. After all, no one wants to be caught in heavy layers when it heats up. But even in the simplest of outfits, you can accessorize with one color and look fresher than ever this summer: magenta.

This Fashionista, an obvious lover of summer hues, instantly brightened up my day at first glance. She was truly able to channel a vibrant look by pairing basics together. She wore a hilarious and ironic tank in highlighter yellow over a lacy bralette, which are both great choices for scorching mornings on campus. Her clean-cut skinny jeans in a dark wash give contrast, and give the bolder pieces a chance to make a statement. All of the elements of this Fashionista’s outfit make for a great casual ensemble that can easily be worn on campus, shopping, running errands or even having a spontaneous beach day.

What really pulled this Fashionista’s look together was her unmistakably vivacious magenta bag. Often overlooked as a color for the summer, magenta has now made its mark with bloggers everywhere. It has the ability catch and stimulate your gaze with its rich tone. During the summer, it is the key to accessorizing because it adds that extra pop without making the elements of your outfit conflict. Magenta can work alongside other vivid colors as seen in this Fashionista’s outfit, or can even be worn against crisp whites for a more formal look. If you feel like dramatically mixing magenta into your summer wardrobe, try an edgy bikini to make it more modern. If you would rather it work as an accent, magenta looks amazing on necklaces and cut-out flats.

The best part about dressing for the summer is that even if we’re feeling lazy, we can get a chic look by accessorizing with colors that are luscious and wild. Don’t be afraid to get a little experimental and make your mark with magenta.
