ACCESSORIES REPORT: Zebra and Cheetah and Ombre! Oh My!

Accessories Report

When it comes to fashion, as I have voiced before, I am a minimalist. I respect when I see a Fashionista effortlessly mix prints, colors and everything in between. Glimpsing at any magazine, this is one trend that everyone seems to try out. Mixing prints is a definite way to make you stand out in the world. It can be intimidating. I normally try to mix floral prints with stripes, picking one common color between the two. Now, this Fashionista sticks to print with little color, but it makes an impact nonetheless!

This Fashionistas strutted around campus channeling her inner wild side. The long graphic cardigan paired with jean shorts is a great combination for fall weather. I love that her tights are an opaque zebra print. Her use of detail to mix in prints isn’t overwhelming paired with the details in her sweater and flats. These flats are anything but boring. They stand on there own in the outfit of black and white. There is definitely something empowering of owning a great little flat that can carry you from day to night, and campus to city. The choice of the cheetah print is excellent. This neutral print has so many possibilities with one’s wardrobe. The cheetah’s brown tones compliment the ombrè trend that this Fashionista is sporting. The ombrè trend has been seen on celebrities such as Lauren Conrad and Rachel Bilson. This hairstyle is a fun, low maintenance way to color your hair for the fall season.

This fall is the perfect time to experiment with mixing prints. As this Fashionista did, using tights as a wildcard for your printed outfit will not only shield you from the chillier weather, but they act as a great accessories to any outfit this fall!
