Accessories Report

I am a firm believer that accessories make the outfit. Accessories are so important because they add interest and detail to an ensemble that draws people in and makes them look closer. As this Fashionista demonstrates, accessories can take a simple outfit of leggings, a button-down and boots and make it fashion forward.

Not too many people can pull of a winter hat outside of the ski slopes, but this Fashionista does it with confidence and ease. Hats can be a great addition to an outfit that is rarely utilized compared to its counterparts jewelry, handbags, shoes and outerwear. Not only is this Fashionista stylish, but she’s smart too. Hats are the ultimate cover up for bad hair day. They also combat frizz, which is almost impossible with Alabama heat and humidity. And when it gets a little warmer she can replace her winter beanie with a bright headscarf for the same effect.

They key to pulling off a bold accessory like a hat is keeping the rest of the outfit basic. This Fashionista does this perfectly by wearing all neutrals in simple, streamlined silhouettes and by keeping layers to a minimum. She has incorporated other unique accessories in a neutral palate like an airplane ring and a bag with a snakeskin texture. To try the look for yourself you can check out this beanie or if you’re feeling daring you can try this multi-colored hat both from ModCloth.
