ACCESSORIES REPORT: That Not-So-Awkward Transition

Accessories Report

That transition between winter and spring is sometimes awkward in terms of fashion and style. Choosing clothes becomes much more difficult because you have to account for the variations in weather. It’s not exactly sweater weather anymore but you still can’t go out in a T-shirt. At the same time, you want to wear a skirt but it’s still a little bit too chilly. However, this Fasionista made it look easy wearing an outfit that perfectly balances both fall and spring weather wear.

The thing I love most about this outfit is that it’s tough but also girly at the same time. The militaristic combat boots and utility jacket balance out the little black dress. In addition, the accessories are a perfect blend of both fierce and girly.

I feel like you can never go wrong with gold. It’s a very glamorous yet tough color that goes with any outfit. This Fashionista’s gold Marc Jacobs watch really stands out and pairs perfectly with the Nordstrom BP studded wrap bracelet. In the era of the smartphone, people rarely wear watches anymore. However, a good watch can serve as a style piece that complements any outfit. Try adding multiple bracelets with similar color patterns along with the watch to make it a real statement piece.

Following the tough but girly vibe, this Fashionista’s cheetah printed scarf is spot on! No pun intended. The other day, I was reading Vogue and it’s no doubt that the animal print trend is still going strong with socialites wearing leopard print dresses now. Although it isn’t a dress, this Fashionista’s scarf complements the outfit without detracting from the whole look. It’s also good in keeping you warm during the transition between fall and spring. So, if you realize that most of your pieces are monochromatic, try adding in a fun print in your accessories to give you outfit a little more pizzazz.

Next time you’re unsure of what to wear because of the weird weather changes, don’t worry. Follow this Fashionista’s example and layer. Layering your clothes like adding on a scarf can allow you to combat any kind of weather. Do this in style by layering your accessories and combining a chunky watch with other similar bracelets. Unlike the weather, this year’s style transition is going to be breeze!
