Everyone has a different way they accessorize. Some like to go bold and make statements with their neck ware and arm candy, others like to keep it simple and subtle. I spotted this Fashionista wearing her accessories ever so perfectly.
At first the outfit looks simple, as if there isn’t much to it, but once you look a little closer it’s clear that this Fashionista’s accessories add more than just a passing glance to her outfit. The monotone look made up of J Brand jeans, Velvet vest, homemade studded Converse from Etsy and a vintage necklace from a boutique in the Marais section of Paris, creates a more refined punk look that is popping up all over the runways this fall. The solid chain mail-esque (think knight in shining armor) ribbed pattern along with the geometrical shaped pieces of that necklace create a grunge, I’m too cool for school, look. If you want to look for something even more anarchic than this you can always dawn the classic oversize chain link necklace. I prefer this one in black; it will send a message that you take your punk style seriously.
And if you’re like this Fashionista you might want to make a statement with your punk accessories if your apparel isn’t necessarily as punk as you’d like. Another way to do it is to focus on studs. They are a big component of the anarchic, tough-girl look. They were seen protruding out of boots and bags last winter, but now they’ve made it to sneakers, clothing, jewelry and much much more. Here is a great studded bracelet from Joomi Lim (not everything tough is black). This Fashionista chose a pair of shoes that combined the already awesome look of the Converse and the total rebel feel of the studs.
No matter how you choose to accessorize, make sure your tough girl vibe works from neck to toe.
Spotted: Tough girl accessories took over the fall fashion wunways. Versace was one of the more successful shows implementing these accessories.
