Accessories Report

Art has the ability to take the individual to a different world. Art eases the mind, and as one of the greatest artists Pablo Picasso once said, “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” Using art as means to express yourself can be completed on a canvas or through fashion. I’ve spotted a Fashionista with a dress that is truly a work of art.

I am not sure what caught my eye first, the bold colors or the whimsical art upon this Fashionista’s frock, but it is definitely a one-of-a-kind piece. It is rare that anyone can pull off a daring color palette; however, this Fashionista does so effortlessly. Her shift dress possesses a cheerful energy not only through the lively colors but through the graphics as well, reminding me of Picasso’s quirky creations. Picasso is known for his imaginative and distorted approach while incorporating bright colors, patterns and line weights. The birds and buildings on her dress blend organic and straight lines, simple shapes and contrasting, bright colors.

A dress with such a unique disposition calls for minimal accessories. While the intriguing colors are truly notable, this Fashionista’s turquoise necklace is a delicate touch, accentuating the bright blue detailing within her dress. For a complementary feminine touch to her statement necklace, she chose round crystal earrings. Subtle, yet the perfect accent against the busy print of her dress.

What I love most about this outfit is that it is individually unique. It does not need stacks of accessories or a pair of flashy shoes to make it a visually striking ensemble. Swap her statement necklace for a cargo-style jacket and her look remains just as fabulous!
