ALL IN THE DETAILS: Steampunk Shades

April 8th, 2016 at 2:00am

There are so many essential items that people can’t leave their house without. For example, your keys, wallet or phone, but what about a cute pair of sunnies? You never know when it might come in handy, since shades have so many functions other than just making a fashion statement. They can save you from squinting in the sun and protect you from the vicious UV rays. You can also hide your eye bags behind them and sleep on the train without anyone knowing. The list can go on, but the main point is that all Fashionistas/os should invest in a pair of stellar sunglasses.

Picking out the perfect sunnies require careful consideration. There is a variety of different shapes and colors to choose from that it can be overwhelming. Also, not to mention that certain frames better suit certain face shapes more. However, the most important thing is that you feel confident and comfortable in them.

This bold Fashionista is oozing with charisma while donning a very striking pair of steampunk-inspired sunglasses. The most distinguished part about her round glasses is the side shields. I love the fact that it’s not something that you see everyday, which makes it even more compelling. The color combination of black and gold on the frames also adds a nice modern touch to it. Needless to say, she effortlessly pulled off this loud accessory.

Her cool girl look doesn’t stop there. This fashion forward individual daringly wore leather on leather. She is sporting a green leather jacket paired with a classic black leather skirt. Then, she finishes her outfit off with a pair of fold over brown boots. The plaid pattern on the inside of her shoes is a befitting detail. Every piece brings something to the table and creates an overall bold look. Sometimes it’s easy to accidentally sabotage your own outfit by throwing a bunch of different elements in the mix, yet this Fashionista nailed it.

How To: Make a statement with sunnies that you love. Incorporate two articles of clothing that are of the same material, such as denim on denim or leather on leather, like this Fashionista. Finally, include a bold color in your outfit and slip on some casual booties. Plus, you can also top it off with a feminine and playful lipstick color.
