ALL IN THE DETAILS: Mixing Metals

All in the details is exactly what this look is all about. From her booties to ’90s-inspired top bun this outfit is the ideal look for a busy college girl. Running from work to class can be hard especially when you want to stay fashionable. This look is perfect for whatever you have to tackle on a busy day.

A key trend that this Fashionista is sporting is her Alex and Ani bracelets. These bracelets have been popping up everywhere and are one of the hottest trends on Augustana’s campus. From their eco-conscious jewelry to positive messages, these pieces are truly one of a kind. I love how this Fashionista stacks these bracelets on her wrist and mixes metals to add more contrast. Another awesome detail in this ensemble is her layered necklaces. She mixes metals again to add more detail to her look.

One great way to make the most out of your wardrobe is taking summer pieces and combining them with winter ones. This Fashionista did a great job transitioning her summer dress into the winter season. By simply adding tights and booties you can instantly upgrade your summer dress into the perfect winter outfit. To give some warmth to your look, add a sweater cardigan like this Fashionista did. A warm tone, like burgundy, gives this look the perfect pop of color it needs.

How To: The key to pulling this trend off is to keep the jewelry simple. Make sure to add dainty necklaces to mix with the chunky bracelets. Also remember to incorporate your own style into it!
