When it comes to clothes, little is needed to express your personality. More often, a print or unique color scheme is a great way to let someone know how you’re feeling or who you are (for the day). For the extra push, simple graphic designs with bold words can be the ultimate way of revealing a little sense of humor in a serious outfit, or a particular belief you uphold regardless of what you’re wearing. We’ve seen those “Keep Calm and Carry On” accessories take a whole new meaning—literally substituting words for more specific personalities. Other times, funnier quotes appear on T-shirts and are the start to a conversation with a stranger. This week, a simple sentence on a bag led me to this Fashionista.
Her “Eat Cake For Breakfast” bag caught my eye in a crowd of people leaving class and of course, she had a fabulous outfit to match her whimsical sense of humor. The colorblocking seen on her bag is a great pop of color and a stylish way to lug around those 50 pounds of school materials that accumulate during the semester. A printed, chiffon tank contrasts against her bag and offers an edgy approach to class comfort while a pair of breezy pants tones down the look. Finally, she chose a classic string of pearls for a girly touch, a couple of bangles and neon pointed flats to effortlessly complement the gray tones in her outfit.
All-in-all, she looks well put together with seemingly no effort! Make it your goal to reveal a little of your personality through accessories like hers. A graphic bag is perfect for Fashionista’s on the go. By mixing prints with your bag, you can have a completely different look each time you reach for it. For more variety, look for smaller accessories with sayings: rings, necklaces, hair pins, etc. The more subtle and creative they are, the more exciting they are to find! My favorite take on this trend would definitely have to be emoji jewelry. Why say how you’re feeling when you can wear it?
