On a crisp morning in Rome, an art history class meets on site at a museum of Roman art. This calls for a more conservative outfit that doesn’t sacrifice style. I caught up with this Fashionista outside of the subway station on her way to the museum. Her simple and chic polka dot dress, classic black bag and timeless loafers were the perfect combination to pull off the look she was going for. Although this outfit was cute and pulled together, it definitely called for a bright and feminine accessory, and this Fashionista nailed it! That accessory is what really caught my eye when seeing her outfit. She chose a bold J.Crew necklace that gave her outfit just the right amount of flair.
The classic nature of this outfit really channels the dressier looks of the ’40s. The statement necklace allows this Fashionista to keep her vintage vibe while adding a modern touch. When choosing statement jewelry, choose a piece that gives off a similar feel to the rest of your outfit. For example, if you are wearing a flowy boho dress, it would be best to add something like a flower crown as your piece of statement jewelry. Also, with one bold accessory, remember to keep the rest of your accessories simple and toned down. This will avoid making your outfit look too busy and overdone. This Fashionista provided the perfect example of this balance.
So, this weekend, remember that statement pieces are an easy way to turn your simple outfit into something everyone will envy.
