Accessories Report

When it is 8:30 in the morning and 40 degrees outside in April in Florida, it is hard to be motivated to put on a cute outfit. Throwing on a hoodie and sweatpants sounds so much easier than making an effort. Trust me, I know. But today’s Fashionista showed me and all other Fashionistas that it is not that hard to stay warm, comfortable and fashionable in the cold hours of the morning. She put together a relaxed outfit and made it stylish through her accessories.

Today’s Fashionista wore two standout maroon accessories. Her maroon beanie kept her warm, as well as on trend. You can get a similar one from Urban Outfitters. Her maroon velvet Dr. Martens-inspired boots were absolutely gorgeous and added such a unique and, in my opinion, underused fabric to her outfit. Not everyone is confident enough to rock red velvet boots, but this Fashionista let her outgoing personality shine through her boots. Unfortunately, boots like these are hard to find. You can find a few similar pairs on eBay, like these ones.

Besides her maroon accessories, she also wore a simple pair of black leggings, a black fleece three-quarter zip-up jacket and a black leather backpack with silver hardware, including some edgy studs. As an extra tip, the best black leggings are from Old Navy. They are thick, never fade and affordable. By having the maroon-colored accessories as “bookends” to her casual, all-black outfit, today’s Fashionista was hard to miss. Try adding a pop of color to a casual outfit through your accessories and watch your outfit transform.
