ACCESSORIES REPORT: Combat Chic

Accessories Report

The winter season is known for having deep, rich dark colors, but this Fashionista proved you don’t have to go Gothic during the winter season. This Fashionista’s garment colors are pale but with the added black accessories. It’s a competition between two opposites; but who wins? Her pale, pink thick sweater is a crewneck and embroidered with a triangle detailing. She pairs it with a thin, white flowing skirt, which connects with the pale garment colors.

The Fashionista’s black cross-body bag is the accessory that pulls the outfit together. With the black strap resting on her right shoulder, it drapes across her body, the base of the purse ending right where light colors end and the black of her tights are seen. The black continues down her legs with her tights and is stopped by the white of her socks, which are linked back up to her light main garments. Then the black is started back up with her black combat boots. With any outfit it is good to have something that pulls an onlooker’s eye back up to the top. A repeating color is a good start, like this Fashionista. Her combat boots top off her look and go with her own personal style.

Even though combat boots are known as being edgy, a Fashionista doesn’t have to have that style to wear them. You can pair them with a big sweater and leggings in the fall or a loose dress in the summer.

Spotted: Yohji Yamamoto’s fall 2012 ready-to-wear collection featured the dress with combat boots look.
