Accessories Report

Spring to the college student marks the start of our library hibernation. Final assignments, presentations and examinations send us into study zones with heavy books in our arms and heavier bags under our eyes. But when your mind is focused on finishing the semester, looking in the mirror before you rush to the library is seldom a priority. But by building a wardrobe full of staple and versatile pieces, choosing an outfit during finals becomes a simple feat.

This Fashionista, like her look, is cool, calm and collected. She wears a khaki utility jacket and dark blue jeans. She keeps her key accessories consistent with cognac leather booties and a cognac leather satchel. The satchel has many pockets and is big enough to carry your school essentials. This Fashionista constructs her outfit with simple pieces essential in every wardrobe. By putting these together, and creating harmony through her shoes and bag, a simple look turns into a minimalistic statement.

Keeping in theme with this Fashionista, the repetition of a single shade of leather is a quick way to keep an outfit looking harmonious. Cinch a dress or blouse with a braided belt, and pair it with a leather-banded watch in the same shade. This can be done with even a black purse and black flats. Keeping a consistency between color and texture is the most effective and simple way make a cohesive look. So when heading out to your next study session, reach for the right staples that you already own. Keep your mind sharp, and your look sharp.

Spotted: In the Michael Kors 2014 spring/summer collection, the repetition of leather in cognac shades and clean shapes created a statement.
