Accessories Report

Accessories can make or break an outfit. This Fashionista knows that fact. What do you pair with a dress covered with birds? A beautiful knotted necklace and monogram earrings. It’s chic, put together and not too much when it comes to accessorizing. The piece that really caught me was the earrings. I saw them when on this Fashionista at the bus stop and I had to share them.

In the college scene, well at least at Virginia Tech, monograms are all the rage. People monogram their cell phone cases, handbags, home décor, notebooks, jewelry and so much more. I find that it’s more chic than just a set of initials. Especially when the designs come in different fonts, from blocks to cursive. This Fashionista has a pair of monogrammed silver earrings from a local store around Blacksburg that are very subtle but totally adorable.  Some fashion brands have caught on big with this trend. You can get shirts and sweaters monogrammed at J.Crew, and a lot of people get Lilly Pulitzer and find their own way to monogram it. It's a fashionable way to add your own touch to an ordinary item.

To complete an outfit, a necklace has to create a balance between accessory and outfit. This multi-knotted necklace, which was made by a friend’s mom, is the perfect addition. It’s simple, yet intricate. Long necklaces are also big in the college scene. They add a great touch to an outfit that looks like it's missing something. For example, in this Fashionistas outfit, the necklace completes the whole look. She is on top of her own style, with a great dress and amazing accessories to make her stick out in the sometimes mundane college scene.
