ALL IN THE DETAILS: Delightful Details

It seems that the cold weather is officially here to stay, and that means layers, layers and more layers. In Tennessee, the mornings are often much colder than the afternoons (sometimes by thirty degrees!), so the importance of layering is upon us once again.

At first glance this outfit may seem simple, but the details here bring everything together to create something that is one-of-a-kind. This Fashionista wears brown Frye leather boots that are perfect for fall paired with some fun bright green legwarmers, which match the decorative flower appliqués on her tunic.

The tunic is the focus piece of the outfit because all of the details are drawn to it—the beaded bracelets, legwarmers, long-sleeved shirt and boots all contain colors that are seen in the flowers. Personally, I love the look of the raw edges on these linen appliqués. They give the tunic a distinctive, artsy feel. She informed me that she purchased it at Lost Petal Linens, a unique business run by women who try to incorporate linen designs on each of their pieces. What a cool way to turn basic pieces into something so personalized!

One especially significant aspect of this outfit is that it is both practical and stylish. We all love big pockets, and these could be useful for storing a phone or just for looks. The layers that this outfit contains are perfect for the increasingly cold weather. A basic long-sleeved T-shirt layered under the tunic was a good choice because its color matches some of the flower petals and since it is a solid neutral, it does not make the outfit overwhelming.

This Fashionista’s unique style reminds me of a quote I enjoy. It states, “Fashion says ‘Me too’. Style says ‘Only me’.” The details of her outfit that all work well at coming together create a one-of-a-kind look. Don’t forget to be yourself and express your uniqueness; it’s all in the details.
