ACCESSORIES REPORT: Get It Through Your Thick Skull

Accessories Report

It used to be that the only time you would see a skull decoration was during Halloween. Long before skulls became a hot commodity, they were solely used for scientific study and Shakespearean practice. Now Gaga rocks the look in her episodic music videos and Nicole Richie wears them while roaming the streets of LA. Skull designs have definitely become a fashion trend this past year, exploding onto shirts, jewelry, bags, shoes and more.

Out of all the accessory essentials every Fashionista/o should own in their closet, a scarf is at the top of the list. Fit for any climate, scarves come in various styles and fabrics. The silk or chunky knit, the infinity or muffler, neon or patterned — scarves are the perfect statement item to keeping you warm and looking stylish. They also come at a variety of price points. High-end or budget friendly, a fashionable scarf can be found almost anywhere and maintain the same chic effect.

Feeling stumped about your outfit? Scarves are the perfect accessory to upgrade your basic ensemble into something more fashion forward. This Fashionista perfectly balanced out her hardcore accessory with bold, emerald, high-waisted pants from H&M. Her lightweight scarf from Neiman Marcus instantly toughens up the look without making her look too unapproachable.

We all know that Shakespeare’s age old prophecy was “To be or not to be, that is the question.” Well my Fashionistas: “To be fashionable,” is my answer.
