Fashion is all about making a statement. Often times, trendy clothing items are an outfit’s main attraction. Crazy, printed sheaths and intricate blouses do not need accessories to add pizazz. However, basic pieces need to be spruced up with some great pieces in order to make a statement. This week’s Fashionista brought her simple, black dress to life with an awesome, layered chain necklace.
This Fashionista’s outfit demonstrates how jewelry can complete a look and provides an easy formula for a comfortable and stylish ensemble. She starts with a basic piece, like her cotton, black dress. Her frock has simple spaghetti straps and a cute layer over the rest of the fabric. There is a deep V-neck on the back that adds a little sexiness to her basic piece. An easy, black dress, like this Fashionista’s, is a staple for everyone’s wardrobe because it serves as the perfect canvas.
She turns this basic look into a stylish outfit with the addition of her layered, chain necklace and cat-eye sunglasses. Her necklace is simple, yet chunky and adds to her outfit without being too distracting. The delicate layers of chains look almost dainty without the cool pendant. The half-moon pendant on her necklace gives off a funky, vintage vibe that could be paired with many outfits. As a final touch, she wears a pair of Oliver Peoples cat-eye sunglasses. The large frame of these glasses are trendy and easy to wear.
Spotted: Lanvin’s fall ready-to-wear collection featured tons of chunky chains. Their necklaces had huge, heavy pendants that said words like “cool” and “love.” Talk about a statement piece.
