ACCESSORIES REPORT: Fringe with Benefits

A major trend recently on both fashion runways as well the sidewalks here on campus has been Native American inspired fashion. Funky Navajo prints, dream catcher inspired earrings, and accessories and clothes adorned with fringe are all great ways to try this look out. This week’s Fashionista was able to take the bohemian babe trend to a more sophisticated glam place with the accessories she chose to wear.

This Fashionista was able to incorporate the fringe trend into her look without coming off as too “costuemy”. With the Native American inspired fashion trend, it’s always best to chose to incorporate the look into your outfit in a non-overwhelmingly way. Too much of a good fashion trend and you may look like you’re ready to attend a themed party instead of your next class. I love that her fringed bag is black suede instead of an earthy brown color as it makes it more versatile. Her knee high black boats and fur trimmed vest allows for some sophistication in her outfit. Her animal printed scarf really works with her outfit too as it breaks up the black on black trend that she is also sporting. Overall, this Fashionista really stood out to me as she comes off as someone who chooses to work a trend into her outfit without allowing it to dominate her whole look. Making a trend your own is always the best way to show off your personal style.

Spotted: rag&bone fall 2011 really showcased the Native American trend. More affordable stores like Urban Outfitters and NastyGal also have several pieces that make the trend ready to wear.
