STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Make Accessories Count

When everything in my closet becomes so blah, and I want to freshen up my look without breaking the bank, I turn to accessories. From scarves and jewelry to handbags and shoes, there are endless ways to amp up even the most basic outfits.

When I spotted this Fashionista during an afternoon shopping outing, I was immediately obsessed with her fringe handbag. Walking behind her, the long fringe was the first thing I noticed before stopping to chat with her. I had immediate bag envy of her statement piece. The basic black coloring in a quilted texture is perfect to ensure maximum usage, and the size is big enough to throw all of ones daily essentials in. If you’re willing to make a bold statement with your handbag, choose a simple one in a bright color, or one in a more subtle color with unique, noticeable details instead.

This Fashionista’s outfit was quite simple, donning a black sweater dress with leggings, a scarf and a light denim jacket to top it off. It was the way she accessorized that took this look beyond ordinary. In addition to the ultra-chic handbag, she wore fun feather earrings with a pop of red in them. Although the color is minimal, this little red detail was all she needed to brighten up her look. The flowy earrings tied in nicely with the flowing strands of the bag.

To contrast the all-black from her waist down, this Fashionista chose to sport a pair of much-loved Frye boots in a light brown color. Opting for brown paired flawlessly with the gold detail in her earrings and the buttoning on her jacket. Simple details like these can make or break an outfit, and this Fashionista pulled the look off effortlessly.
