I’ve been doing this column for a couple of months now, and I’ve seen a lot of amazing outfits and Fashionistas out there. However, until this week, I hadn’t really discovered what “ALL IN THE DETAILS” truly meant. Me being the obsessive matcher that I am, I always pay attention to detail; I even match the color of my sunglasses to the hues of my outfit. But there comes a time when even the most seemingly detail-oriented people learn something new about complementing an outfit in a way that no one really expects or notices for that matter.
And that’s where this Fashionista comes in. This outfit, although extremely cute, may seem somewhat ordinary from the naked eye; a long, knit white cardigan with a lightweight spaghetti strap blouse, denim shorts and jeweled sandals is far from avant-garde. However, if you take a closer look and really focus on the details, you notice this Fashionista’s amazing manicure complete with varying blues and little bows. What’s even better is that these blues even matched the Fashionista’s top! My crazy meticulous self immediately acknowledged the presence of someone who truly embodied the idea of an outfit’s best qualities being “ALL IN THE DETAILS.”
However, it doesn’t stop at the manicure; although I do love a fun, summer color like a light blue or orange with some high-waisted shorts, plain white top, and amazing accessories like some rings, a necklace and/or a cuff. You can pair your favorite headband or wrap with some light wash denim shorts with lace, a solid colored T-shirt and tall gladiator sandals to get a simple, yet completely stylish look. It may be a bit more understated than the typically complicated fashionable outfit, but it doesn’t look any less extraordinary.
How To: Want to add something to a plain outfit to really hit a style home run? Well, wear your favorite jeans with some tall wedges, a v-neck sleeveless blouse and invest in an amazing manicure or nail color. Trust me, everyone, even guys, notices a great mani/pedi. However, the most important take away here is that it’s the little things in life that truly make a difference.
