ACCESSORIES REPORT: Sugar and Spice

Accessories Report

Sugar and spice, and everything nice! This Fashionista sports a soft rock look that has become insanely popular within street fashion. It’s all about having just the right touch of femininity and punk. With finals slowly approaching, everyone seems to be on their way to the library. Although the stress is upon us, it doesn’t stop this Fashionista from being sassy on her way out.

A great piece of this attire is the mint sweater. The color mint was a hot commodity this past summer. She reinvents the color with this sweater. An oversized sweater is a must-have for any CollegeFashionista. When pairing this lovely mint sweater with the studded boots, it creates the soft punk look. Her mint sweater is the ultra feminine and the boots are  giving just the right amount of attitude to her outfit. Studs have been a very sought after look. She mixes these two well loved looks to combine a killer outfit. She definitely knows what she is up to.

Her extra additions, such as her winter white backpack and high white socks, give the look an extra pop of personality. She stands out with these accessories. Her unexpected use of colors is what I love about her look. The extra silver chandelier earrings correlate with the silver studs in the combat boots. The outfit is a great, innovative twist on the soft rock look. Try it yourself this season as an easy to throw together, but overall amazing look.

ACCESSORIES REPORT: Sugar And Spice

Accessories Report

Have you ever seen someone and thought, “Her style is so effortless; I want to look like that!” Ever wonder how she achieved that level of cool? I think I've found the answer and it became apparent to me when I spotted this Fashionista wearing a pair of combat boots very reminiscent of '90s grunge.

The key to building a great style is mixing elements from different and, better yet, opposing trends in a cohesive way. For example, would you think someone dressed in all florals and pinks or someone in all black and spikes is fashionable? Probably not, because their looks is so concentrated on one trend that there’s no interest. For this reason, I give this Fashionista a virtual high-five. She has given her normally girl-next-door dress a hard edge by adding in a pair of worn-in combat boots.

Other ways to mix tough combat boots into your wardrobe? Pair them with a fitted T-shirt and skinny jeans for a laid-back look with a kick or go all the way and wear them with a pretty floral dress for the ultimate juxtaposition. If boots aren’t really your thing, get the same tough vibe by adding a black leather jacket to a girly outfit; the possibilities are endless.

So ladies, pull your boots on and make people wonder whether you’re made of sugar or spice.

Spotted: Combat boots were featured on nearly every look for the Marc by Marc Jacobs fall 2012 ready to wear line.
