ALL IN THE DETAILS: Handmade To Perfection

July 31st, 2015 at 2:00am

It’s finally the weekend. It’s time to go out and about to explore after a busy week full of errands, internships and work. One of the best parts about Puerto Rico is that the weekends are always filled with new and exciting things to do and see, from concerts and beach parties to art festivals and road trips around the island. One of my all time favorite places to visit in Puerto Rico is Old San Juan, with its cobblestone streets filled with so much culture, history and beauty. Not knowing what I was going to find, I ventured through these old streets and came upon this Fashionista and her one of a kind outfit.

She is styling a black tank top with dark jeans and colorful wedges. However, as the title of this article suggests, take a closer look at the details. Her accessories do all of the talking. My favorite detail is her flower statement necklace. I asked her where she got it and she told me she made it. As I took a closer look at it, I realized that the flowers were made of paper and were attached to a thin red chain. Not only has she created a stylish look, but she is also expressing her personal style and creativity in a way that no one else can. She opted for a beautiful, handmade piece that makes a statement on its own.

Nevertheless, this Fashionista did not stop with the necklace. She decided to pair it with a blue messenger bag and colorful wedges. By wearing a black top and jeans, she balanced the colors from the accessories, making the necklace, the messenger bag and the wedges each stand out on their own. It’s like her statement pieces are saying, “Don’t look at the clothes! Look at me!”

With a creative eye like this Fashionista’s, her unique necklace managed to polish her look even more because she made it her own. If you have a talent for creating your own pieces, don’t be afraid to use it. By creating your own pieces, you are showcasing your artistic talent and making your personal style like no other.

How To: You can easily imitate this look with a few steps. If you want to make your accessories stand out most of all, choose simple and plain articles of clothing. Try a black or white top and pair it with jeans or shorts. Then, wear your most colorful pieces of jewelry, shoes or handbag. Finally, if you happen to know how to make your own creative accessories, take this opportunity to showcase them. There are no limits to what you can create!
