A simple way to add pizazz to any outfit is often by adding accessories. The key is to keep only one accessory as your statement piece. This Fashionista’s necklace, for example, brings attention to her face and also ties in with the color on her sheer top to create a polished look. You can easily dress up an inexpensive outfit by adding your favorite piece of costume jewelry or even a designer bag. In my opinion, the best accessory a Fashionista can wear is a bright smile on her face!
Name: Sofia Cabezas
CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?
Sophia Cabezas: I feel like it’s edgy but girly at the same time. I’m especially girly right now because I’m wearing a lot of floral pieces. During the winter I wear spikes and stuff like that. It just depends on the season.
CF: What trends are your favorites at the moment?
SC: Right now I like the overall trend. They’re fun to style with a cute tank top underneath or a crop top. I love them.
CF: When did you start experimenting with your style?
SC: I would say my junior year of high school. Before then, my style was very conservative and I didn’t branch out much. Even my makeup was plain, but now I like to wear bright colored lipsticks.
CF: What do you think completes an outfit?
EB: Accessories, especially jewelry. Necklaces and rings are key in my personal wardrobe. Also, shoes are really important to the outfit because they bring it all together.
How To: Play around with different colors and textures in your accessories to create a fun contrast. You can keep it simple by wearing a plain dress and adding a pop of color with a neon belt. Or you could also use a statement necklace to bring out the color in a printed shirt. The point is to use your accessories to create the best outfit possible.
