ALL IN THE DETAILS: Carry Some Color

All In The Details

As any Fashionista/o would agree, it’s important to make a statement. Regardless of where you’re going, what you’re doing or who you’re with, you should always find ways to use your savvy fashion sense to stand out from the crowd. No one wants to be the person walking down the street who blends into the background, so make heads turn! Pump up the color, bring on the patterns and pile on the accessories. Everyone has their own unique edge or style, so whatever yours is, turn it up to the max and flaunt it.

One of the best ways to ensure that you will always make a statement is to create focal pieces in your look. Think of your outfit as a piece of art. When people peruse artwork in a museum, what makes them stop to look at one piece over another? Usually, because there is something about that piece of artwork that captures their attention – and once they are drawn in, they begin to notice the other details within the work.

The same concept goes for what you wear, a concept this Fashionista demonstrates quite clearly. From her gorgeous fitted black blazer to her suede nude heels, she rocks classic neutral tones from head to toe, but what really draws the eye is her bright red handbag. A color known for its attention-grabbing qualities, red is always an excellent choice if you’re wishing to stand out from the crowd. This Fashionista couldn’t have chosen a better piece to spice up her outfit and really make a statement. Once we are drawn in by the beautiful hue of her bag, our eyes can then wander to appreciate details such as the unique asymmetrical cut of her shirt, the flattering fit of her blazer and the tribal print of her pants. A great focal piece like this can work wonders on your outfit and instantly transform you from a wallflower to a wildflower.

How To: Want to turn heads like this fierce Fashionista? Incorporate your favorite bright summer colors into your outfit through your most important accessory—your handbag. Add a pop of color to any look by scooping up a bold satchel like these by kate spade and Botkier. For a fancier look, try a clutch in fun hues like fuchsia and lime green.
