Fashionista Spotlight

On a chilly and misty New England morning, this Fashionista brightened up the gloomy air with a stylish, colorful outfit. Using layers, accessories and color, this Fashionista created a cozy, chic look. A pair of dark wash jeans and neutral flats, with a fantastic hint of sparkle, serves as the base for the rest of the look. Soft browns, rich ambers and jewel-like greens serve as the fantastic color patterns for the rest of the outfit. This Fashionista’s mustard yellow crochet sweater was visually and texturally stunning. Such a piece is perfect for any fall wardrobe to mix and match with a variety of accessories. This Fashionista chose to pair this bold sweater with a printed scarf. The similarly light fabric of the scarf fits the effortless feel of the outfit. This Fashionista has created a replica-worthy look using classic pieces with trendy twists.
