In the world of fashion, there is a fine line between wearing an accessory, and letting it wear you. Many people gravitate towards small and subtle accessories so that they will not be overpowered by what they are wearing. Others tend to wear the biggest, flashiest pieces they can get their hands on without quite mastering the look. However, when one brave Fashionista comes along and masters the art of wearing a statement accessory, it’s a glorious moment.
This Fashionista is wearing a marvelous dragon medallion necklace from Zara. In the Chinese culture, dragons are symbols of power and strength. What I love about this Fashionista is how she embraces those qualities and exudes fierceness and confidence. This medallion necklace is one of the most unique accessories I’ve ever seen on campus. The double dragon creates such an interesting shape, and the triple tassels give the necklace movement and texture. This Fashionista paired the dragons with a black and gold bead necklace from Lucky Brand. Her black leather boots by Alfani have gold triangle hardware on the boot shaft. Underneath matching leather gloves, she is wearing a black oval ring with a diamond-encrusted rim.
Never let your accessories overpower you. This Fashionista is a perfect example of accessories done right. From her necklaces, to her ring, to her shoes, this outfit is show stopping. Let this Fashionista’s fiery strength inspire you to wear your statement pieces with confidence!
