Besides having your keys and phone, another thing that always travels from block to block with you is music. Whether you’re listening to it on an outdated iPod Mini or on your phone, going from place to place with a soundtrack can liven up any commute. No matter who you’re listening to, headphones are a necessity if you need a dose of Beyoncé or an ‘80s karaoke moment. This Fashionista couldn’t have looked more stylish with her sleek black dress and bold red headphones.
Although all-black sounds like a recipe for disaster in the hot weather, this Fashionista makes it work with a sleeveless dress and short ankle booties. She keeps her accessories minimal with a silver crescent-like necklace, but adds a welcomed pop with the red headphones. The headphones also add an urban oomph and casualness to this Fashionista’s LBD.
If reaching for those white headphones that come with any original iPod is getting old, it’s time to mix up your routine. What goes around your neck or on your head is just as important as what you are wearing. If you feel like dressing up for class but don’t want to look too overdone, adding a pair of big headphones is an easy way to tone down your look. Since the headphones will eventually come off, wearing a simple necklace and bracelet to your ensemble will keep things polished.
How To: First things first, get a pair of statement making headphones. Go with a pair in a bright color, maybe a pair with studs or an awesome metallic set. To allow your new beats to really pop, keep the rest of your look monochromatic with a little black dress and matching black booties. Listening to “Flawless” would be an appropriate addition to your look, too.
