ALL IN THE DETAILS: Sneakers and Stackable Rings

The way a person accessorizes an outfit makes the whole look come together. I love the idea of using accessories and layering pieces to take a plain dress and make it a fashion statement. Splurging on a simple dress won’t make you feel so bad when it can be easily taken from day to night with the change of just a couple pieces. Every Fashionista needs her perfect little black dress.

What I love about this look is the pairing of the dress with Converse. Converse will never go out of style, but wearing them with fancy dresses has been very trendy recently. The sneakers make this outfit practical for weekend wear with possible walking. And, who doesn’t want to be comfy and fashionable at the same time?!

Another great aspect of this outfit that ties in a splash of color are her stacked turquoise and silver rings. When making a statement with accessories, there’s no such thing as too many rings. Stackable rings are very-fashion forward at the moment and fun to put together. My favorites are customs rings bought from artists at summer festivals. Not only are they one of a kind, but they also come with a story.

Statement jackets are also a great way to transform a basic dress. Here, a leather jacket is used to keep the attention on the rings and sneakers rather than the jacket but the focus could easily be put on the jacket with a fun fur or printed piece. Jackets resting on your shoulders is a trend that is seen everywhere nowadays, especially among the Kardashian clan.

How To: There are so many different options to make this dress, and other simple dresses like it, into the perfect outfit for any occasion. First, you must decide how formal or informal you want the look to be. Then, accessorize accordingly using jewelry, shoes, scarfs and jackets.
