The help of accessories can easily transform a simple outfit into an elegant ensemble. It seems as though fashion manifested the recent accessories obsession, since many Fashionistas jumped on the bandwagon over winter break and flaunted their jewelry finds within the past weeks. Jewelry–from lavished Arm Candy to chunky necklaces–is a hot fashion commodity.
This Fashionista donned a simple outfit, but she added a pair of beautiful black statement earrings, a few Alex & Ani bracelets and a pair of rustic combat boots. This Fashionista’s overall dark color palette created a minimal canvas that left room for her to adorn herself with lavished accessories.
Check out Banana Republic’s black chandelier earrings to recreate this Fashionista’s look and to add the perfect amount of bling. Complement a dress with this pair of earrings for the ultimate date night look. However, if you want a more laid-back vibe to your nighttime ensemble, put the earrings with a pair of jeans and a sheer blouse.
