A wise person once said that sometimes, it’s the small things that matter most. Most people would interpret that phrase to being related to relationships or a positive mindset. However, I’m convinced that saying came from someone with nothing more than fashion on the mind! Little details and tweaks can make or break an outfit, and one particular Fashionista came to campus ready to show how small fashion choices can make a huge impact.
Pairing small trendy pieces with classic clothing items, rather than completely copying mainstream outfits, is one of the best ways to take on trends. The contrast between current pieces versus timeless threads make for a balanced outfit. Pairing simple clothing items, like a nude sweater, with a trendy bow-tie collar necklace can help play up your neutrals in a fun yet chic way.
Patterns aren’t the only way to add detail to an outfit. This Fashionista’s solid red Puma sneakers were the highlight for her ensemble. Accessorizing with bright colors is a subtle way to add interest to any look.
The details don’t just stop at her feet. This Fashionista came to play with a cute, furry keychain that matches her black leather backpack, as well an army-green jacket that can be cinched in to accentuate the waist. Sticking to a nude lip (this Fashionista loves Colourpop’s Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Beeper, $6) is a smart way to partner makeup with this outfit. The natural colors serve to not take away from the shoes’ spotlight.
This Fashionista described that she always likes to add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral outfit. She likes to take really simple pieces and pair them in order to look put together with minimal effort.
It seems to me like this stylish biology major has gotten fashion down to a science.
