Accessories Report

The days are winding down in northeast PA before a winter coat is going to be a necessity. With the holiday season right around the corner, I’m soon going to be spotting peacoats and beanies covering up everyone’s chic pieces.

But, before school let out for Thanksgiving break I caught this Fashionista sporting all sorts of fun, class-friendly pieces. She was spotted from a mile away in her bright red jeans, but she managed to tone down the overall feel of her hot bottoms with neutral accessories. Her loose white top, beige crossbody purse and Michael Kors flats tied the whole look together. Usually, I’m not a fan of matchy-matchy accessories but this was a perfect, sophisticated pairing that any Fashionista would love. The leather separates allow for multi-season use, which is always a plus.

For other Fashionistas out there looking for the perfect leather pairs, start with simple flats that you could combine with a number of pieces from your closet. The iconic Tory Burch Reva Ballet Flat is one that anyone would love. Look for a bargain price while sales are booming for the holidays. But no matter what you spend on these puppies it’ll be a good investment. After you’ve found your perfect flat, look for a purse to complement. Macy’s offers a Calvin Klein leather crossbody in beige and a number of other color options. The chain strap gives it a little flare and lets it stand out against a clean outfit. For a more urban look try American Eagle Outfitters’s Woven Crossbody Bag.

So before you let the bargains and coupons expire make sure you hit up some holiday sales for the perfect leather accessories.

Spotted: Stuart Weitzman offers a beige, patent leather flat in is spring 2013 collection. The bow detailing on the top would be the perfect pop to a day full of classes or a night full of endless opportunities.
