There is a great appreciation for those amazingly warm days in the winter. The sun is shining bright, coats have been left at home and the hint of spring is in the air. As I started my spring break visiting Norfolk State University in Norfolk, Virginia, I was graced with such weather.

This Fashionista is prepared for a day of shopping and running errands. She perfectly encapsulates casual-chic! Without being weighed down and bothered with the hassle of a winter coat, she is free to enjoy the beautiful weather and can show off her dope threads.

Right off the bat, I am drawn to her hat. A black cap with a red brim and red duck illustration is already cool. To push it over the edge, a black pom pom is on top to make this accessory RAD. Subtle, yet impactful, her gold cat-eye sunglasses blocks the sun’s rays and her gold hoop earrings are an accessory essential. A classic black T-shirt and black tights under a chambray button down shirt are workable casual pieces. These can be worn with any boot or sneaker to set off a look. She chose a pair of tall gray Uggs to stay committed to the casual everyday feel of the outfit.

With a hat that stands out, this Fashionista uses versatile gold accessory pieces to make her casual look trendy!

How To: The simplicity in these details go a long way. The gold feature of most of the accessories makes them versatile and matches almost every outfit choice. Gold hoop earrings and sunglasses make any casual day or night look elevated to chic. Adding a cap as unique as this one will make the outfit standout and is definitely a conversation piece.
