As Fashionistas/os and Style Gurus on college campuses nationwide, we tend to lean on the latest trends for inspiration and mix these looks with our own personal flair. In watching my personal style evolve over the years, there are some key pieces that have stuck around through it all. I am a firm believer in re-wearing that one amazing pair of jeans until you literally cannot wear them anymore or splurging on a timeless handbag that you will have and use forever. This Fashionista’s look is especially inspiring because she takes classic boyfriend-fitted denim and plays it up with an incredible pair of heels that have proven to be very versatile for her.
She begins accessorizing from head to toe with an intricate silver necklace. This piece of jewelry adds a gypsy/festival vibe to her black lace top and cuffed jeans. She pairs this necklace with a vintage silver cuff bracelet. The mix of flowers and antique stones looks very elegant. It’s important to remember not to overdo it on the accessories. This Fashionista accessorizes just right in choosing a bold necklace and a chunky bracelet while leaving the earrings and rings behind.
Her fabulous heels were a definite splurge (a birthday gift to herself), but who could deny them? The black and ivory color blocking makes these the perfect heels to wear with just about anything. From day to night, they can be worn to dress up a pair of casual jeans, as displayed by this Fashionista, or as a flawless addition to your favorite little black dress. The pointed toe and ankle strap make these the most chic must-haves for any closet. Best of all? They’re comfortable, too! This Fashionista struts around New York City’s miles of sidewalk in these shoes. Who says fashion has to be painful?
Spotted: Giambattista Valli’s fall 2013 couture collection is a great example of what an “it” pair of shoes can do for a variety of different looks. Each of the models wears the exact pair of heels with different ensembles.
