ALL IN THE DETAILS: Tangled Up In Blue

Let me tell you, this winter has been insane. One minute its snowing and below freezing, and the next its sunny and 50 degrees! When the weather happens to climb above zero, the University of Wisconsin campus comes to life, and that is evident in the details in this Madison Fashionista’s look.

Rich and bright blues have been one of my favorite accent colors since I was in grade school, and this Fashionista utilizes this stunning color in the perfect way. She starts off with a relatively neutral base: black high-waisted jeans, brown military style boots and an army green cargo jacket with gold hardware detailing. However, the Fashionista mixes up her neutral palette by adding a patterned crop top. The top adds a beautiful pop of color to her look with cerulean blue, rosy pink and forest green hues to tie the look together.

This Fashionista adds a few key details to her outfit in order to make the blue statement color stand out. She chooses a gold chain necklace with a sapphire blue stone pendant, which matches the gold hardware detailing on her jacket. The pendant necklace layered over the high neckline of her crop top gives this detail a certain kind of subtlety. For earrings, this Fashionista dons a few different types of posts to give her look texture and interest. The blue in her second set of earrings matches some of the flowered details in her top, further tying the look together. Lastly, the Fashionista adds a cerulean blue skinny beaded cuff bracelet for a final lasting detail.

How To: Pick your own statement color, like cherry red, and mix it with your favorite neutral pieces to recreate this look!
