ALL IN THE DETAILS: It's The Little Things

November 20th, 2015 at 2:10am

It’s a chilly autumn day and you put on your favorite pair of jeans, boots, and a cozy shirt. Looking in the mirror you think to yourself, “this outfit is missing something.” The little details make a difference in looking drab or RAD. Layers, accessories, tucks and rolls are a must for making your outfit standout. The outfits that always catch my eye around campus are those that the Fashionista uses jewelry, patterns or a great pair of shoes to add style to what could be a simple outfit. It’s the little things like these that a Fashionista uses to express her own unique style and standout from the crowd.

This Fashionista knows how to add little details to take her outfit from basic to chic. She starts the look with a simple striped shirt and black jeans. The first detail she adds is an olive green, military style jacket. This jacket is the perfect addition for a chilly fall afternoon. To show off her braided leather belt and to make the outfit look more polished, this Fashionista tucks in her shirt. The maroon scarf adds both color and warmth to the outfit. Finally, this Fashionista finishes off her look with a simple pair of black ankle boots. The little details, like tucking in the shirt, the jacket and layering all make her outfit stand out from the usual fall wear.

How To: With the cool temperatures, fall is the perfect season for learning to add to an outfit. Boot socks, jackets and scarves are just a few accessories that not only look good, but also keep you warm. Something as simple as rolling up your sleeves or the bottoms of jeans can add style to your outfit. Tucking in your shirt is also a great option for adding a belt, or getting a different look with your top. Hats are a growing trend and can easily make your outfit look chic. Details are easy to incorporate into a basic look and make your outfit turn heads.
