Sometimes simple goes a long way. Whether you’re wearing a statement necklace or rocking your favorite neon bag, at times it’s best to keep the rest of your outfit simple but stylish. However, don’t be afraid to get creative with colors and mix and match different shades and hues. Especially this spring, adding a ton of color is a key to any Fashionista’s wardrobe. Spring has definitely sprung on the Marist campus, and I’ve seen nothing but pops of color and lots of colored denim. The best part about spring is embracing the warm weather by breaking out that new peplum top and peach pants you’ve been dying to wear since the beginning of March. Get out there, enjoy the sun and may the color lead you in!
This Fashionista caught my eye with her stunning maxi dress and beautiful statement necklace. Since the dress did most of the talking in her ensemble, adding the necklace in a bright color was the perfect way to keep her look bold, yet simple. When pairing accessories like necklaces and earrings with your outfit, be sure you don’t overdo it. I usually enjoy matching big pieces with tiny earrings and minimal rings. Her solid colored black ring fit in perfectly with her other accessories and the gold undertone complemented the gold chain in her necklace as well. Now you’re ready to rock your new statement necklace, in a simple but unique way!
When trying to keep your outfit simple, sometimes choosing the right pair of shoes is no walk in the park. Riding the comfort train in the morning? Opt for a solid colored pair of flip flops like this Fashionista did. This way, you’ll be both comfortable and cool throughout the day. Even try a pair of patent leather neutral flats, and this time, you’ll knock your maxi dress and statement jewelry look out of the park. Next, grab your favorite tote and a pair of shades. Your style is now complete, so go make a simple statement.
