This week, our stylish Fashionista sports nautical stripes with a chic pencil skirt. Boston is known for nautical inspired looks because of our state’s history. This Fashionista takes her chic outfit to the next level with a vintage french scarf, nautical boat shoes, pop chain bracelets and a super chic handbag.
This outfit is perfectly styled; the black and white theme of her clothing mixed with the neutrals of her shoes and handbag are the perfect canvas to add some fun color! My favorite piece is her French scarf. Our Fashionista said it is Parisian vintage, but you can find similar pieces at Hermès. A scarf can add French flair to any look all year round. You can accessorize with scarves around your neck and shoulders or even tied onto your wrists or handbag.
The next accessory that pops (literally!) are her accent bracelets. This Fashionista accessorized her wrists with bright orange and red chain bracelets. She bought them this summer at the Gap, where they have many fun accessories that give any outfit the perfect pop of color. This great look was pulled together with nautical Sperry Top-Siders; a great, versatile shoe that Fashionistas can wear all year round. They are comfortable, preppy and totally appropriate anywhere in Massachusetts. She paired her boat shoes with a nude and black handbag which matches her black and neutral outfit perfectly. This Fashionistas handbag is from a collection at ALDO. It is the perfect size to bring to class or to run errands.
These great pieces can be transferred to any fall look because neutral and bright colors accessories work great together. Adding a pop of color makes fall and winter looks fun! Try cute, small scarfs this fall instead of big, bohemian scarves. This gives your look a European twist that will separate you from the crowd.
