ALL IN THE DETAILS: Accessorize to Mesmerize

ALL IN THE DETAILS: Accessorize to Mesmerize

Accessories make an outfit—that’s a fact. Cool patterns and textures can do the trick, too. In fast fashion lately, ribbed textures have been especially popular in women’s short and long sleeve style tops. This Fashionista took note and chose a simple, ribbed T-shirt that she carefully tucked into a pleated burgundy skirt. The mini hemline on the skirt balances out with the higher neckline on the T-shirt, ensuring that she won’t show too much skin. Because it was a nice and sunny day, she opted to keep her legs bare and slid on some chunky heeled sandals.

These sandals definitely caught my eye. The simple, thick-strapped design and practical heel height keep the pair from being too over-the-top for a stroll in the city. I was especially surprised to hear that these shoes were not purchased from a trendy brand like Topshop or ASOS, but rather from the shoe brand Clarks! According to the Fashionista, that made them all the more suitable for long stretches of walking, so why wear sneakers?

As for her additional accessories, this Fashionista kept it simple and functional. In lieu of a purse she sported a gray mini backpack in a quilted texture. On her wrist, a classic silver and rose gold watch. On the same hand just one dainty, simple ring decorated her index finger.

The overall look consists of accessories and fabric textures that work perfectly together. A flippy skirt and a comfy T-shirt ensemble is always a good idea, and this Fashionista executed it well for a nice and sunny day in San Francisco’s Japantown.
