ACCESSORIES REPORT: Stylish Messenger Bag

Accessories Report

For my last CollegeFashionista article, I wanted to say that I enjoyed writing for the ACCESSORIES REPORT this semester for the University of San Francisco. I noticed various style trends going on at my school and loved getting to meet new Fashionistas and Fashionistos each week.

I spotted this stylish college student wearing the perfect outfit for class, and of course, her accessories. I love her fashionable messenger bag for class, and it is a great substitute for a backpack. The color also goes well with her outfit and can match her entire wardrobe since these are basic colors. I have written other articles about cross-body bags and noticed it is also a popular style for schoolbags now, especially neon bags for summer. I love this trend, and don’t plan on it going away anytime soon.

For the last day of classes, this Fashionista decided to stay warm in a light denim jacket, dark denim high-waisted pants, a crop top, a skinny belt and booties. You can find a similar jean jacket at Urban Outfitters and a pair of high-waisted jeans from ASOS.

This Fashionista is rocking double denim that is a growing trend and only works when you pair different shades of denim together. Many celebrities are wearing this popular trend, such as Rihanna and Cameron Diaz. This trend can also work for our Fashionistos and Ashton Kutcher and Zac Efron were spotted wearing double denim.

Spotted: I spotted a messenger bag on Orla Kiely spring 2014 runway. I absolutely love this look and can’t wait to see it more on my campus next fall. Have a great summer Fashionistas and Fashionistos. Again, I had an amazing experience writing for CollegeFashionista, and don’t forget to be daring with your accessories, especially since so many new trends are arriving.
