This week's Fashionista celebrates university life in style with accessories that turn a potentially dull outfit into a sight for sore eyes. She’s kept the colour neutral, as is quite common since last year’s autumnal palette took over greyer shades. Tapered trousers are a good way to dress up a look while being comfortable at the same time. While this Fashionista has kept her trousers dark, there are plenty of interesting patterned trousers out there that will become a more focal point of an oufit. Here is a pair similar to this Fashionista’s from Mango and here is a Topshop pair for those who want to make more of a statement.
What makes this outfit so classic are the matching accessories and how they complement the outfit as a whole. Her scarf is quite clearly the statement here and in such lovely rich colours, as it ought to be! For a nice woolen mix it is probably best to have a look through charity and vintage shops for budget-friendly pieces. Here is a beautiful floral one from MyVintage and there are plenty more on the website, so take a look. Another vintage find is her bag. I love the terracotta colour of it and satchels are both handy and on trend at the moment, so it is worth investing in one seeing as they come in all shapes and sizes. Marc Chantel bags are available on eBay for very reasonable prices, but here is another similar one from Accessorize. It is probably best to find charity shops, however, because then you tend to get nicer detail such, such as the detailed clasp.
Finally, although her shoes are simple by themselves, this Fashionista has pulled the look together by keeping the accessories brown and the shoes add to the effect. For those wanting to achieve a classic look such as this, it is best to pull accessories from the same pallette and make one garment be the statement. This outfit works so well because the scarf runs down the length of it, making it obvious. It is a quick fit to any outfit – even in summer a pretty satin one can make the world of difference.
