Accessories Report

As the accomplished actor Jack Nicholson bluntly put it, “With my sunglasses on, I’m Jack Nicholson. Without them, I’m fat and 60.” Sunglasses have the unattainable ability of being able to create a persona. Even if you aren’t wearing an ounce of makeup, have bags under your eyes, once the sunglasses are on it all vanishes. A great pair of sunnies can make walking to class chic while giving off an aura of mystery. There are a multitude of styles of sunglasses though one of the most timeless styles is, aviators. Above all, aviators automatically transform any outfit to come off as timeless.

This Fashionista’s ensemble automatically draws you in. Her sunglasses instantly capture your attention with their intense pop of color. The look is an eclectic mix between sleek and bohemian. The scarf brings an earthy vibe to the look with its organic design. The black beanie, moto-leather jacket and booties add an edgy feel to the outfit. The Fashionista was able to perfectly combine the different accessories in a way that they are united yet unique at the same time.

For my Fashionistas out there, aviators are the accessory you need to have. They can be worn casually with a plain white T-shirt and high-waisted shorts. If you want more of a sophisticated look they can be paired with a fitted blazer, dark wash jeans and stilettos. Aviators have and always will be a perpetual American staple. Today aviators are available in wide array of styles and colors. They can be made of plastic or metal. Aviators are also purchasable with flash lenses or mirrored lenses that add a youthful touch.

Aviators never have stopped being on-trend. This enduring classic is an accessory that every Fashionista should invest in.

Spotted: At 3.1 Phillip Lim spring 2014 ready-to-wear runaway show, models were seen rocking a modern take to the timeless classic.
