FASHION FROM ABROAD: Let One Piece Inspire the Other

There is nothing better than a cohesive outfit that incorporates accessories impeccably. As a huge fan of statement pieces, whether it be necklaces or a scarves, I recognize the importance of ensuring that the rest of the outfit is up to par. Deciding on a color scheme and taking hints from the hues of your outfit is the easiest way to look polished and uniform.

I spotted this Fashionista in Paris. She epitomizes the idea of looking pulled together without trying too hard by pairing skinny jeans with a simple black shirt and light beige knit. She adds a great pair of black leather booties, a brown hobo bag, and an oversized floral scarf to complete the look. I love how she takes accents from every piece and brings it all together with a patterned scarf. To get this look, try a knit or cardigan like this one from See by Chloe. Add a basic black shirt from American Apparel and skinny jeans by BDG. Try these booties from Steve Madden. Add a patterned scarf like this leopard one and a hobo bag, both from Topshop. 

Hint: You can take the opposite approach when forming an outfit by pairing a patterned knit, blazer, or cardigan with a solid colored scarf. I love this cardigan from Forever 21 paired with a basic black pashmina. Let pieces inspire the other, making colors complement without being overly matchy.
