ALL IN THE DETAILS: A Black Hat Affair

Spotted: A chic Fashionista strutting the streets of downtown Harrisonburg. This tasteful ensemble featured a bishop sleeve blouse paired with a midi skirt that was spiced up by a few staple accessories.

Starting from the bottom, her open-toe heels were beige with a nude sole. This shoe featured thick straps that wrapped around giving a sexy, exposed look. For her bottom, she chose a simple midi skirt to complement the detail of the top. Pairing the outfit with white not only made it classy and chic, but it helped focus in on the detail and colors of the rest of the outfit rather than distracting from it. (Wearing white after Labor Day is definitely a rule that should be broken on the reg, am I right?)

Her top had a few different assets that made it unique. It had a closed herringbone stitch embroidery surrounding the bottom, the stripe down the sleeves, the choker and the detail of the front. It was loose in the body and sleeves to complement the tight skirt, but gathered around the wrist, neck and waist to add shape. This long sleeve, choker-neck blouse was a sandy-beige miracle.

To accessorize, she added a nude fringe bag to bring out the color in the shoes. This bag included a long braided strap and a loose slouched body with gold metal features. She topped the outfit off with the perfect hat: a wide-brim fedora. This black suede beauty was brought to life by a vibrant rust-colored band covered in feathers. The hat was the piece that made the outfit whole. The feathers alone had every color included in the rest of the ensemble, but also the rust in the band added the fall feel the outfit was missing.

Clearly, accessories can go a long way. Pairing a simple outfit with a few staple pieces is the perfect way to switch up your wardrobe without having to buy a new one.

The flare of this getup definitely came from the details. The muscle of the outfit was a mix of a classic skirt and a trendy top, but the shoes, bag and hat were the cherry on top. This gorgeous outfit is perfect for a day-to-night look that will make you feel like you owned the streets. This flawless Fashionista certainly did.
