ALL IN THE DETAILS: Modern Cool Accessories

Thank goodness it’s finally spring! I’ve been loving all the warmer weather looks that I’ve seen on my campus, and this Fashionista gives me incredible accessorizing inspiration. Style advice, credited to the infamous Coco Chanel suggests that, before leaving the house, one should always take at least one thing off. I don’t think this suggestion has to be followed literally, but it’s always good to keep in mind that you don’t want to over accessorize a good outfit. What I love about the look here is how this Fashionista has embraced pops of color while accessorizing her look just enough to look thoughtful, but not so much that it appears cluttered or distracting.

This Fashionista’s choice of a red outer layer makes an otherwise all black outfit visually striking. I love that she managed to break out a crop top and culottes as the temperatures have increased, but still managed to stay practical for Amsterdam’s ever-changing weather conditions with her outer layer. What really ties her outfit together, though, are her accessories.

The leopard print backpack adds a fun touch to a modern and streamlined look, and yes, it’s very practical for on-the-go university students. Additionally, her choice of minimal creepers add a sleek and stylish touch to her outfit (and some extra height), while the black keeps her outfit tied nicely together. The choker trend is still going strong and here you can see how it can add interest to an outfit without being distracting to the look as a whole. Finally, I love how she brought out the sunglasses for such a beautiful sunny day! There are so many cool sunglasses styles this season and her classic looking, yet still modern pair, add the perfect finishing touch to her look.

I personally believe that accessories add a je ne sais quoi element to an outfit. Accessorizing shouldn’t be underestimated. Altogether, it can completely change the tone of an outfit. As you can see here, the thoughtful inclusion of certain elements can really tie the whole outfit together to make a big impact.
