When it comes to picking out the perfect ensemble for the day, accessories are the last thing on a Fashionista/o’s mind. However, in reality, the smaller things are what can take a boring outfit to beautiful. The solution is to always be prepared with accessories that can tie together any look. This summer, those accessories should be gold.
I spotted this Fashionista running to class on the last day of the summer session. She instantly caught my eye because, frankly, every piece in her outfit made a statement. She started her outfit off with a fabulous crochet peplum top, which is a great choice for transitional humid weather and instantly gives any Fashionista a flattering sweet-heart bustline. She paired this black top with some lightly printed and washed-out skinny jeans, which gave enough contrast to make each piece shine. She finished off the base of the outfit with some lovely white sandals, a perfect color to transition her light bottoms into while showing off her chic summer pedicure.
When two extremes are reached in an outfit, the key to tying them together is with warm-toned jewelry. This Fashionista made sure this would be completed by wearing some bold yet fitting drop earrings. In a classic oval shape, gold earrings like these can instantly make any outfit a bit classier and elongate your figure when you wear a high neck like this Fashionista. Gold can serve as a warm median between two ends of a spectrum in an outfit, whether that is in regard to color, texture, or pattern. This Fashionista made sure her gold accent became more of a theme by adding some thin stacked bangles into the mix. Always a hit for the summer, bangles add a bit of an exotic look that every Fashionista loves because they can be worn in so many ways and give that slight bit of glimmer in an ensemble without overdoing it. Plus, you can buy a set of several bangles and get more for your money!
If you’re feeling like dedicating more accessories into your daily looks, follow the gold rush. Gold is a great hue for the summer because it really embodies the warmth and thrill that Fashionistas/os feel during the season, and it transitions beautifully when you begin to wear deep-hued pieces in the fall.
