Accessories Report

Have you ever put together the perfect outfit, whether it was a pair of shorts and a tank or a dress and killer heels, and still felt like something was missing? If you’re a girl and are as indecisive as I am, chances are you have. I used to find myself confronted with this dilemma more often than not. I would pull something together, look in the mirror and contemplate why I wasn’t satisfied. That’s when my appreciation for jewelry blossomed. From statement necklaces, to stacks of bangles and oversized earrings, jewelry is the solution for any outfit that needs a little extra something.

Every girl grows up with different taste, but also with a mutual love for jewelry. It’s those final details that allow us to express ourselves and help make an outfit feel complete. I find that jewelry is often overlooked if it isn’t loud or big, which is why I fell in love with this Fashionista’s look.

Her black tank, embroidered at the bottom with strands of delicate lace, add a touch of girly flair to her casual outfit, while her high-waisted shorts and white leather Converse keep it hip and edgy. This ensemble is perfect for a day out with friends, or even for class. It’s modern, fun and feminine all at once.

What makes this Fashionista stand out is her impeccable attention to detail. Her smart choices in jewelry help create a look that is cohesive and playful. Each piece plays off of another in the right way, adding a level of sophistication without fighting for attention. Her black and gold wrist cuffs, jeweled watch and edgy slave bracelet are all small pieces with big impact. Her stacked rings, geometric tiered necklace and hoop earrings are the last pieces that top her ensemble off, working to deliver that “wow” factor.

If you’re ever having reservations about an outfit, take a deeper look into your jewelry box. I guarantee the slightest touch of detail will help you feel confident and complete in whatever you’re wearing.

Spotted: Although their specialty may not be jewelry, no one pays more attention to detail  than the designers at Valentino, which is obvious in their fall 2014 ready-to-wear collection.
