Accessories Report

The great thing about fashion is that it is one of the few mediums where anyone can express themselves playfully, poke fun at convention and look great at the same time. I’m always instantly attracted to clothing, and especially accessories, that are unconventional and different.

The Fashionista I captured on the street exuded this inner confidence that was perceptible in her dilligent walk to Arnold Hall. As I got closer to her, I saw why. She was wearing a piece that spoke for itself. Her bone shaped necklace with gold exterior finishing studded with pebbled white fabric was cute and full of personality. It was fun, and it made a statement without being so overbearing as to be too loud. If worn with a little black dress or a plain crew neck top it would be an even more of a standout, conversational piece.

Big jewelry is trending right now, and it’s definitely a great thing for any Fashionista or Fashionisto on a budget. Accessories can be made out of nearly anything, and sometimes the choice of material, like the pebbled white fabric for the bones of this necklace, make the accessory even more interesting. Jewelry can revolutionize a plain black crew neck top, and help you to use more of your wardrobe.  To replicate a version of this necklace you could use a simple chain and metal adornments for scrapbooking or make your own bones out of fabric and string them. Jewelry is a great savior for stylish students with tight budgets that don’t include clothes.

Spotted:  Big choker length rose statement necklaces in Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2013 collection. These necklaces have DIY written all over them. For a cheap replica of these adorable necklaces, you can use clay rose beads or even metal rose scrapbook adornments and string them evenly on a chain with beads in between.
