Accessories Report

With two massive snow storms and multiple days off from school, students here at James Madison are ecstatic to finally experience some true spring weather (though we aren’t necessarily complaining about the missed classes). They’ve been showing their excitement with ballet flats, fun patterns and my absolute favorite: brightly colored scarves! These are some of the best accessories on the market as they complement any body shape, can be worn in an innumerable amount of ways and add the perfect finishing touch to any ensemble that seems a tad incomplete.

This Fashionista is showing her spring excitement through this absolutely stunning circle scarf. To keep herself protected from the wind tunnel known as James Madison but still add a stylish touch, she opted for this beautiful red coat. The style of the jacket will be comfortable for her long day of classes but show that effort was put into her fashion choices this morning. Similar styles can be found at Travel Smith or Nordstrom. She also chose a pair of plain black leggings and riding boots to keep the look casual and have the focal point on her adorable scarf. Brown riding boots are hitting the sale rack around this time of year, so if you’re looking for a pair stop by Lucky 21 or DSW.

While the additional pieces work together to form a solid ensemble, as soon as I passed this Fashionista my eyes went straight for that scarf. The blues, greens and corals work together to form the perfect pattern and are visually stunning. I’ve recently seen some other spectacular choices at J.Crew and Juicy Couture so head there now and get a jump start on this spring accessory!
