Fall and winter have always been my favorite time of year because I love to add many different layering pieces and accessories to my outfits. In the summertime, it can become so hot that all I want to do is throw on a tank top and shorts. Once the temperatures begin to drop, I love adding on my favorite fall/winter accessories! It gives you that little extra pop you need for your outfit and it isn’t hard to do! Taking your favorite staple items from your closet such as a scarf or cardigan and adding it to your look can bring your outfit to another level. It’s all about the accessories.
This Fashionista is a great example of this. Her outfit starts with just a basic chambray shirt paired with nice pair of black jeans cuffed at the bottom. In recent years, we have seen chambray shirts become a major trend in fashion and come in various colors and designs. What I love about chambray shirts is how many different ways you can style them. You can add an awesome statement necklace for a more sophisticated look or a high-waisted skirt for work. Or, if you’re really feeling crazy, you can wear a chambray shirt paired with a denim jean! Just make sure the denim color of the shirt is different than the denim of the jeans! This creates a balanced and super chic look. This Fashionista added a printed blanket scarf to her outfit which works perfect for winter. It adds the necessary warmth you need while giving your look something extra. Blanket scarves are a must-have for the winter season and can be tied in various different ways.
Another huge accessory trend this season is the big floppy hat seen worn by this Fashionista. These floppy hats were popular over the summer and have continued over into the fall/winter season! They are year-round and are the perfect accessory for anyone who wants to add another accessory to their outfit. I always imagine going to a winery or outdoor venue while wearing this hat. It’s the perfect accessory for any outdoor event. I love how this Fashionista added her floppy hat to this look because the colors in the hat were also in the scarf, which tied it all together! To complete her look, she added gold accessories and a nice black pair of ankle booties. Ankle booties are great boots to wear with your favorite cuffed jeans. This gives your outfit more edge while staying sophisticated and fashion-forward!
How To: Accessories are an important part of every outfit and can completely change a look from boring to knockout. Just the simple addition of a scarf, necklace or hat can make you the ultimate fashionista of your friends. So remember next time you’re considering adding that extra necklace or scarf, add it. Because in the end, it’s all about the accessories.
