Okay, so we may not be completely new to the idea of neutrals but this Fashionista definitely shows a new and interesting way to tackle the trend. Her clean and classic style also helps give a sense of cohesion to her entire look.
The camel colored belted trench is a chic and stylish staple for these early spring days that still feel like winter. The first accessory I noticed was her beautiful printed scarf that perfectly pulls out the camel color of her coat and also adds a pop of color. This lightweight woven and printed scarf was a delightful switch-up from the expected and typical chunky knit scarf that has taken over the past few months. A fun printed scarf is easy to find and it is the perfect lightweight accessory to transition into a new season.
The colors in the top half of her outfit also direct attention upward. They are balanced out by the shades of black in her accessories, purse, pants and boots. Again, the riding boot pulls through for the win. If you haven’t noticed by now, the classic black riding boot is a staple for every Fashionista. The details of her Coach purse also drew my attention. The three-dimensional designs give an added interest and playful feeling to her entire outfit.
And finally, use of chunky jewelry and delicate rings emphasize her neutral color palette and mastery of the accessory. I think it’s easy to assume that this is not this Fashionista’s first fashion rodeo.
This look would be fairly simple to recreate. Try working with mixing shades of neutrals: blacks, browns, creams or olive greens. Then, add color, texture or statement pieces with different accessories. Let your accessories speak for the entire look!
