Spotted on McTavish street, a Fashionista who’s tying her look together with a colorful knotted necklace. Her entire look reads casual elegance, but the playful piece adds some levity into the outfit. When it comes to vintage, this Fashionista understands the notion of out with the old and in with the rejuvenation of the old. Her necklace is actually a DIY revamping of her mother’s old collection of beaded necklaces. A clever thought, and a strategically placed knot later, and this Fashionista is rocking the McGill runway.
The idea of a funky DIY piece to break up a very Montreal chic ensemble is a brilliant ploy. This Fashionista has her look playing to a sophisticated muted palette as she struts her stuff in head-to-toe Aritzia. A few of other trendy pieces like a Michael Kors oversized watch, black leather Marc Jacobs bag, and sand colored ankle booties from Town Shoes set off the luxe in this look. It's the juxtaposition of the clean aesthetic with the bold and colorful nature of the necklace that makes this look work so perfectly.
Similar to a classic color pop, using a colorful and funky piece to contrast a sleeker look offers its wearer a more jovial feel. Whether you opt for a posh business suit or a ripped jeans and a Hanes T-shirt, there’s always room to bring in a little personality with your accessories. What better medium to do so than with DIY accessories that speak solely to your aesthetic? DIY allows you to customize the look to completely your liking.
Be sure you’re the only one sporting your trendy look this season. Go DIY!
