You have heard the expression, "Love is in the details." It's the same with fashion! Outfits can be dressed up or down with the addition of just the right accessories. Details such as belts, leggings, jewelry, scarves, and jackets can turn an ordinary dress into something that turns heads.
This week's Fashionista took a cute dark grey dress, popular for this season, and added a multi-strand, jeweled necklace, a smokey web-to-knuckle fashion ring, and a wide black, leather belt. Adding a contrasting texture, like leather, to a very feminine fabric creates interest and sophistication. By choosing the beautiful, rhinestone encrusted sandals, our Fashionista put together an outfit that was perfect for dinner on the lawn at Herty Field. The ensemble is relaxed yet detailed with leather, ruffles, and jewels so a simple hair style works perfectly and does not compete with her clothing.
This same dress can be completely modified by adding a denim jacket and black boots or a soft, cashmere sweater and leggings. Dress it up with fancy shoes and an updo or go casual with sandals and cute jewelry. The details can carry this outfit from casual dinner to sorority social to rock concert. It's all in the dazzling details, Fashionistas!
Hint: Add smokey, patterned Merona tights from Target with cool new pumps from Macy's. Stack some bracelets, like the ones J.Crew carries. You could also keep the legs plain with solid colored tights and shoes and add a charcoal-colored sweater with some sparkle from J.Crew. Since grey is a neutral color, you have lots of options. You can even add a punch of red with a handbag and red jewelry for that UGA feel!
