When getting dressed in the morning it is very easy to look in the mirror and think something is missing. One way to avoid this feeling is by adding accessories to take your outfit from plain to just right. It is a fear of many that over accessorizing causes clutter within a look but many Fashionistas know that one accessory isn’t always enough to make the statement you intend to make. That’s why the layering trend, when done properly, is the perfect way to put the finishing touches on any outfit.
This Fashionista used layering in all aspects of her look. For starters, around her neck lays a series of necklaces that she put together herself. By taking a short necklace and wearing it with a number of lengthy necklaces adds depth and makes more of a statement than just one short piece. Forever 21 is currently featuring a “Made to Layer” section on their website that has a great variety of jewelry that looks great when being layered. This Fashionista made it appear as though her necklaces were all in one, which is the secret to layering!
Around this Fashionista’s wrist is a series of jewelry in which she layered perfectly. With thin watches, like this one by Betsey Johnson coming back in style, this allows you to spice up your wrist with something extra like bangles or other bracelets. The Fashionista you see here added the Michael Kors Buckle Bangle, which I myself have been eying for quite a while. Another favorite layering bracelet are the Alex and Ani wire bangles. These come in tons of colors and each charm is subtle and meaningful. These bangles look great stacked together and when worn with other wrist wear.
This Fashionista finishes off her outfit accessorizing with a plain black tote, black hat and matching black boots. Overall, her look is crisp and she totally mastered the art of layering!
