Accessories Report

If I did not know better, I would have guessed that Regina George had dressed Emory students last Friday. From salmon pink Chubbies to neon pink bowties, the campus proved to be very much in the Mean Girls spirit.

During the past few months, Atlanta has not been up to par with my expectations of what weather in the south should be: warm every season. Chilly on Monday, rainy on Tuesday, hot on Wednesday and windy on Thursday—by the time Friday arrives, Atlantians have prepared for the worst. This week’s Fashionista did just that. I spotted her well dressed for whatever elements Atlanta may have thrown our way on her walk to the library.

She paired a pretty, pink scarf and luxe tote with her coat. The two pieces added a pop of color to her outfit, which showed that dressing professionally for class does not translate to dressing in bland attire. Her coat, pencil skirt and Tory Burch flats tell professors she is prepared to learn, but the scarf and tote are what I like to call “personality pieces”. In other words, they are accessories that let people know your inner sense of style. The best part of our Fashionista’s outfit is the versatility of one of her personality pieces; the tote. Not only is it a gorgeous accessory, but it also functions as a means to carry everything from her laptop to her books—a trendy way of transporting study essentials from the dorm to the library. A tote, like this Fashionista’s, serves as a two-in-one,  a trendy alternative for a backpack as well as the talk of the class.

Being en vogue does not mean that you are formatted from the insides of a magazine. In fact, personality pieces paired with your favorite trends will enhance your outfit. In this Fashionista’s case, her tote added a pop of color to her outfit while being utilitarian in the process.
