Sometimes the best accessories are the ones that you don’t even have to put on. Sure shoes are fabulous and statement baubles are rarely amiss, but why not let the story of those special pieces and your best attributes have some of the spotlight? This Fashionista rocks her look on both fronts. Her glasses, vermillion lipstick, pink shoes and smattering of silver jewelry accentuate her most striking features yet manage to stand out in a look definitely worthy of a second glance. Not only are her accessories spot-on and reflective of a gorgeously unique sense of style, she also artfully combined pieces to pull together an eclectic outfit.
From head to toe this Fashionista looks modern and incredibly hip. Her innovative combination of colors, prints and textures is grounded by one of the most versatile collegiate necessities: a military-inspired jacket. Mauve brogues, silver earrings and rings and a brightly woven cross-body pop against the backdrop of this wardrobe essential and a ruffled dress. Her highly individualistic mash of accessories lends an air of definite street cred to her ensemble—a trait underlined by the comfort of her shoes and practicality of a perfectly sized carryall.
While her outfit is undoubtedly lovely, perhaps the best part is how her pieces have individual significance. Her shoes are from Paris and as if that weren’t fab enough, they are entirely animal product free—perfect for this Fashionista’s preferences. In addition, one of the rings that adorns her fingers has the uplifting engraved message “I promise to stay positive” (pinky swear!). And who could help but look on the bright side with such great glasses and a pop of red lipstick? Perhaps the biggest stunner is this Fashionista’s hair—her natural texture is amazing. What accessory, even ones as perfectly mixed as these, could hope to compete?
