Accessorizing is always the best part about creating a cute outfit to wear. No, I am not just talking about jewelry and purses, ladies! You can also accessorize by taking advantage of detail and embellishments. I noticed this Fashionista because of the fabulous detail that she displayed in her chic outfit. She chose to match the color of her accessories in a perfect way, and she revealed a lace design in the back of her white peplum top that put her in the spotlight immediately. Sometimes, the smallest amount of detail is what captures people’s attention the most, such as the rips in her jeans and the layout of her necklace – the slight add-ons are what turns a basic piece of garment into a stylish work of art.

How To: Pay attention to detail when creating your outfit. There is no need to purchase the typical plain-Jane garments anymore! A basic top can be maximized when embellished with rhinestones and studs or a simple design or cut-out. Basic jeans can be tweaked with a couple of tears or some bling embellishments. When it comes to accessories, matching colors is always a fun way to feel you have a completed look.
