ALL IN THE DETAILS: Chic Confidence

Rocking edgy pieces of clothing can be nerve-wracking sometimes, am I right? If you’re like me, then you understand that struggle of drooling over these pieces but not necessarily having the guts to wear them yet. You seriously envy those trendsetters that can strut around campus in any outfit and look flawless. It’s all about remembering that we all look flawless no matter what we wear. Don’t worry, that mentality comes more easily eventually. A great way to push yourself in that direction is by incorporating a fun and crazy detail to a rather neutral and clean outfit.

This Fashionista’s snakeskin, pointed flats are the perfect flair to take her outfit to a whole new level. Mixing and matching patterns can be a tricky business, but it can often work out in your favor. You can also achieve that touch of adventure in your outfit by adding a pop of color, if you’re not up for multiple patterns. Any accessory can do the job, including wallets, shoes and necklaces. You can go as far out as you want or stay true to your natural style, but either way, it’ll definitely help you feel more confident to go for that eccentric jacket or those patterned pants soon enough.

This Fashionista completes her look with a neutral print dress, a dark wash jean jacket and a neutral handbag. All of these pieces subtly compliment the chic flats.

How To: If you’ve been nervous to add edge to your outfit, look to your accessories first. Pair a bright color or crazy pattern accessory with a neutral based outfit to add that pop to your look.
