Accessories Report

Staying stylish in Minnesota’s lengthy winter season is truly a skill, most of the Fashionistas/os I’ve seen including myself would most likely rather be bundled in a marshmallow-like snowsuit. However, the challenge of making heads turn in a sub-zero climate can defrost the chill.

This Fashionista braves the cold wearing a knit black sweater with gray undertones and her BCBGeneration statement belt. Typically for daytime, oversized sweaters are all the rage. However, belting this sweater creates a new look. It adds shape and instantly transforms a cozy daytime sweater to a winter statement top. This Fashionista complements her belt with art deco gold and black statement earrings. Geometric-shaped jewelry is a season staple whether it be chunky or sleek and this Fashionista sported the trend perfectly.

Being a total believer in the pop of color rule this style queen rocked a red lip subtly brightening up the overall look with a contrasting boot to match. Adding even the smallest ounce of color to any winter outfit can really brighten the mood, as this Fashionista did so perfectly. The look is finished off with a simple black wristlet which does not distract from the key accessory piece, the belt.

So this chilling season why not belt your snug oversized sweater to create a more sophisticated evening look!
