TREND: Go Bold with Accessories

Although many people are great at pulling off a ton of accessories at once, I personally prefer to stick with one bold item at a time. For me, I think it’s important to have a focus item that adds visual interest to your outfit and makes a statement without going overboard. This Fashionista shows the perfect example of how to do exactly that. She has kept her outfit simple and in neutral colors in order to allow her brightly-colored necklace to be the focus. She has paired an elbow-length button up blouse in black that has some girly details in the fabric on the upper half with simple black leggings. She added flat sandals in a contrasting tan color and a brown hobo-style bag in addition to the funky necklace. She does a great job of mixing neutrals that a lot of people are afraid of doing, like wearing brown with black. The effect is classy and elegant. By picking a necklace in bright red, which also nicely complements the color of her hair, it adds a pop of color to her otherwise plain-colored outfit. The necklace is chunky with big beads and wood rings.

Accessories are a great way to dress up a simple outfit and express your personality. To find fun chunky necklaces like the one this Fashionista is wearing, check out Urban Outfitters, or Forever 21, for some great options that are reasonably priced. Piperlime also has a great variety in a ton of styles! You can also find great jewelry at vintage and antique stores.  Have fun with your accessories and use them to turn a plain outfit into a fashionable one.
