ALL IN THE DETAILS: Finding Your Focus

ALL IN THE DETAILS: Finding Your Focus

Details. They’re the pieces that take an outfit to the next level and tie everything together. If you’ve ever seen someone with a rad outfit and wondered how they look so put together, it’s probably because they paid attention to the subtle, minor pieces of their outfit. A simple necklace, the right shoes or a hat can really accentuate the main components of any outfit. Details can bring out different colors or textures and direct the style of the look.

This Fashionista is embracing the coveted few days of fall weather in Florida with the main components of her outfit: a flannel shirt dress and simple denim jacket. I love shirt dresses because they are chic pieces that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Her black felt hat and platform boots allow the dress to be the star by focusing the eyes on the red plaid. The denim jacket and gold bracelets brighten up the look with neutral colors that won’t clash or create a busy look with too many dominating colors.

When the details of an outfit come together, like they do here, we find our eyes falling to the center so we can absorb every detail. We see the look come full circle as each component has a purpose, contributing to the shirt dress. I love this look even more because it’s versatile; you can wear it for a night out or a day of class, shopping, etc. The best details focus your look without limiting you to one occasion. Don’t be afraid to experiment and find your focus.
