It is no secret that a few well-placed accessories can transform any outfit from ordinary to extraordinary. Accessorizing is like creating a piece of fine art though. Great care must be taken in order to achieve the perfect balance between clothing and accessories, just as most artists take their time to plan color schemes and painting techniques in order to properly convey their desired message.

This Fashionista’s dress is simple, but her use of accessories takes the outfit to another level. First of all, her gold feather earrings, the only jewelry she is wearing, goes perfectly with everything that she is wearing. Her drawstring bag and navy flats complement her dress very well. I love how she added a salmon pink and brown braided belt to the ensemble. It really helps pull everything together.

When one accessorizes, there is no need to go crazy and throw all of your bracelets, necklaces, earrings and other accessories on. This Fashionista proves that less is definitely more. As Coco Chanel once famously said, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.”

How To: If you want to get this Fashionista’s look, start with a fit and flare dress like this teal number from Forever 21. As for the accessories, you can add a skinny belt in a complementary color and a pair of dangly earrings like these chandelier earrings from Charlotte Russe. Lastly, slip on a cute pair of flats and go show the world what you’re made of!
