Accessories Report

The spring semester just started and now campus is full with students, which makes me excited when hunting down for Fashionistas. Spring in Austin tends to be very diverse. Some days it’s really cold and others tend to be warm. It’s enough to say that the climate here varies and is unpredictable which is harder when dressing up for school.

Many people think that spring is the season to wear more color and to try new patterns in our wardrobe. However, the transition from winter to spring gives enough room to continue wearing darker colors and gradually add color through accessories. This Fashionista proves this by dressing in all black with accessories in different color tones. This Fashionista keeps her look on-trend with a three-strand minimalist necklace in small details and a beaded headband.

The accessory that drew me in was her layered minimalist necklace that I’ve seen lately in accessory stores. I love this look since her accessories stand out with her black ensemble. This outfit works because of the light and airy material of the fabrics which makes it easier to add a jacket in case it gets cold. Her skirt gives a bohemian vibe that fits perfectly with her fringe boots and beaded headband. Other details that make her outfit unique are the embroidery in her skirt and her sheer kimono style top. I think that incorporating different and unique items like these, truly helps you create and develop your own personal style while also creating a look no one can really duplicate.

Just like with clothing, it’s always important to mix accessories in various materials to make the look interesting. Headbands are the perfect way to wear your hair down and under control on a windy day without compromising having to wear a ponytail every day. If you want to channel this Fashionista’s look, you can try this sparkly beaded headband from Forever 21 or this other one in bright colors. To add a focus point to your outfit, try this layered silver necklace from H&M or this one in gold from Forever 21. Both necklaces are very good options to use on campus or to transform your look from day to night.
