STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Little Things

Style Advice of the Week

If I had one tip for the future, accessories would be it. There is nothing easier and more fashionable than pairing a plain canvas such as a white T-shirt or solid-colored dress with a statement necklace or printed scarf. What accessories you chose are almost as important as getting dressed at all.

In this case accessories are essential. The Fashionista’s sunglasses, bag and necklace give her on-trend maxi dress the flare it needs. I spotted her sunglasses that resemble the Prada Minimal Baroque, fit for a diva. The round shape is a nice aesthetic change from the traditional rectangle. Taking us back to '60s go-go style, these shades give her a mod vibe. Moving down to her neck, her necklace catches the passerby’s eye. Sometimes all it takes is a little burst of color for an outfit to go from boring to chic. Her teardrop turquoise necklace popping against the coral is the perfect touch against solid color. Wearing her Michael Kors bag on one shoulder, she looks ready to go with all her things fashionably accessible. Rebbeca Minkoff has become iconic for her bags, all of which I am madly in love with. It is easy to take her bags from day to night proving to be both classy and cool.

From sunglasses to sandals, an outfit is completed by the little things. If anything, these little touches make it easier for us to pull together our very own unique but simple style. I am excited to see more summer looks such as this, taking advantage of the plethora of accessories available to Fashionistas/os.

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Little Things

Style Advice of the Week

Style is as much about the little details as it is the whole image. However, sometimes those little things can be dismissed or overlooked, if incorporated into an outfit at all. The best part about small details is just that — they contribute to the outfit without taking away from the look in general.

This Fashionista was spotted wearing a fairly monochromatic cold-weather outfit, but after seeing the splashes of color, I stopped her for further investigation into her look. The majority of this Fashionista’s look is simple and classic. She wears a pair of black Converse, black jeans from PacSun and a black leather jacket from Urban Outfitters. Below the surface, however, you can see stripes of color in this Fashionista’s sweater, which she found at Salvation Army. When she takes the jacket off, you can see a single neon pink zipper. This detail, although initially hidden, adds an incredible pop to an otherwise monochromatic outfit.

When picking and creating pieces for a look, don’t be afraid to sneak in a “little something” for a little surprise. It adds a less extravagant dimension to your look, especially when you're bundling up during the cooler months.

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Little Things

Accessories Report

As she strutted through the hall in Valley Life Sciences Building, this Fashionista’s flair immediately captured my attention. I quite literally had to run out the building and down the stairs to catch up to her, but thankfully, she graciously allowed me to photograph her.

Even with this Fashionista’s busy schedule, she still manages to take the time to heed even the smallest details in her outfit. I personally feel like attention to detail is key when completing any look; it helps to pull together an outfit. This Fashionista cinched her navy blue and white polka dot dress with a thin black belt with a gold buckle by loosely looping the belt around itself. She accessorized the look with a pop of color in a quirky flower necklace. Sundance has beautiful and unique handmade jewelry (their multi-strand necklaces are exquisite and some of my personal favorites on the site). Even the green-flowered lining of this Fashionista's khaki coat looks purposeful.

Sometimes it's the little things that make all the difference–in life and in an outfit.
