Happy New Year to all my Fashionistas/os! If you don’t know me already, my name is Cara Gordon and I’m currently a sophomore at Michigan State University. I’m starting off 2014 right by taking on another semester of writing for CollegeFashionista. I’ll be writing for the ACCESSORIES REPORT column, so be sure to tune in every Friday where I’ll cover how students are wearing their favorite accessory trends straight from the runway to campus.
When I was in middle school, I received the Teen People: Celebrity Style Guide for Christmas and it eventually became my bible (RIP Teen People). One of the main things it emphasized was that accessorizing is one of the easiest ways to make your style unforgettable. Think about the “Who Wore It Better” columns in magazines, usually the shoes, necklaces or other accessories of choice can make or break an ensemble. I, like most fashionable females, am obsessed with accessories. I will easily swoon over a trendy pair of shoes, chunky bracelet or an oversized pair of sunglasses. I’ve always been the one to spend more money on accessories then the actual clothing pieces themselves and definitely believe that more is definitely more when it comes to accessories. Accessories are like magic and can transform just about any outfit from ordinary to extraordinary, which is why I’m so excited to write for the ACCESSORIES REPORT column each week.
Right now, I’m really into hats, scarves (Burberry scarves are timeless), patterned tights and ankle boots (make sure they’re waterproof!) to keep me warm on my long, chilly walks to class. For when the Michigan sun decides to shine, I can’t wait to slip back into strappy sandals and floppy sunhats. I’m stoked to see how fellow Fashionistas/os keep fashionably warm this semester, and even more so, how they transfer over into the best season of all, Spring!
