ACCESSORIES REPORT: Sounds Like a Statement

Accessories Report

The mouth is a powerful thing. They say the words you speak have the greatest influence and can leave the biggest impact. But who says you can only use your mouth to make a statement? Not only what we speak, but what we hear is just as important. Even more so are the statements made and in the world of fashion, making statements is the daily regular. Leaving an impact with her ears, no explanation was necessary for this Fashionista’s outfit to make a statement with her high-fashion, bold mix of classic pieces.

All things accessories in mind, this Fashionista first caught my eye with her killer hoop earrings. With gold studded accents that add a sort of rocker feel, this ever popular piece of jewelry is extremely versatile and necessary to any Fashionista’s accessory collection. Find a pair of statement hoop earrings like hers to match your personality and emphasize your style. If there is one trend that I am obsessed with, it is leopard print with red lips, a timeless pairing.

This Fashionista continues on-point with her vivacious leopard jacket, a blend that hints at thrift shop mixed with vogue. You can never go wrong with a bold red lip that accentuates all things glamorous and classic. She pairs her jacket with a striped cropped tee and an on-trend black A-line skater skirt. She keeps the rest of her outfit monochrome with an all-black ensemble of ripped tights, knee-highs and booties that have a hint of grungy punk, the perfect contrast to her glamorous opposites. If skirts aren’t your thing, switch out the skirt for a pair of boyfriend jeans and go for a more laid back look with a pair of flats.

Next time you are left wondering what to wear or say, let your outfit do the talking. Give your mouth a break and let your ears make a statement because with the right pair of statement earrings, you’ll be the talk of the town. You can never go wrong with classics and this Fashionista proves that with the right accessories, your style will speak for itself.
