STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Skinny on Accessories

Pairing your outfit with the right accessories is a true science. There’s always a constant struggle between what is too much and what is too simple when it comes to accessorizing. None of us want to be a plain Jane, but at the same time we don’t want to be a crazy Cathy either. Finding a harmonious balance is the key to achieving a fashionable look when incorporating accessories.

This Fashionista wears accessories very well. She’s started with a basic striped tank top and jeans, and layered a lace vest over top. She’s then added to her ensemble by accessorizing with a straw fedora and hobo shoulder bag, both of which are extremely on trend with the latest developments in fashion. To be more specific though, this featured Fashionista is wearing one of my personal favorite accessories that has become very popular in recent months: the skinny belt. My advice of the week is to try incorporating one of these fabulous waist cinchers into your wardrobe. These belts can be worn with a wide array of products, including tops (as this Fashionista did), dresses, skirts and shorts. They add a lovely shape to the body while creating interest and texture in an outfit.

To recreate this Fashionista’s look, try starting with a simple top and pant. For accessories, try adding this straw fedora from Urban Outfitters and oversized hobo from Forever 21. To complete the ensemble, you’ll definitely need a skinny belt. Try one of these belts from Urban Outfitters.

Hint: Try wearing two skinny belts instead of one for some extra interest and detail around the waist.
