The color of the season is denim. There, I said it, and I am not going to take it back. Shades of blue jean are appearing everywhere, from the obvious skinnies to the most unassuming accessories, but it’s the striking versatility of the grainy hue that has heads turning and outfits intensifying. These days denim doesn’t just have to come in the form of cut-offs or bell-bottoms, but it can make a statement in other ways; it can come disguised as tops, vests and dare I say… purses? 

Today’s Fashionsta, has clearly done her homework and is welcoming denim hues into her wardrobe with open arms. It goes without saying that white-on-black is totally classic in its own right, but a pop of blue jean accessories goes a long way and adds a splash of color to a look while still remaining subtle and subdued. George Washington girls are definitely apprehensive when it comes to color, but seeing this Fashionista on the street made me realize that blue is more than just a simple hue; blue can add a certain je ne sais quoi to an ensemble, setting a confident mood with just a basic accent. This CollegeFashionista's colorless outfit goes from meek to chic with dangly earrings and a denim saddle bag, throwing matchy-matchy rumors out the window and proving she's a Fashionista force to be reckoned with. Did I mention I'm obsessed with her boots?

Though I’m still not onboard with the denim on denim trend, I’m a full proponent of adding a splash of blue jean in the form of delicate and feminine accessories. Bags, whether cross-body or tote, are a great jumping-off point into this trend, and earrings, scarves or even the highest of heels in denim hues will allow you to test the waters without fully committing. Don’t believe me? Try it, and you may be surprised what the right blue can do for you.
