ALL IN THE DETAILS: The Little Things

In a school as big as UCSC, there are many students that dress in various ways to show their style and personality. Some dress to impress, while others dress to make a statement. Most students like to wear bold and quirky outfits to broadcast their sense of fashion. I spotted this Fashionista out of the crowd because she was different from most students. She created a simple yet refined outfit that grabbed my attention immediately.

This Fashionista kept her outfit simple by pairing her dainty slim bar necklace with a black blouse. Her bar necklace gave a nice pop of color to her dark ensemble. In order to keep her look casual, she tucked her dark indigo skinny jeans into a pair of black ankle booties. The blue zipper details on the back of her booties match perfectly with her dark indigo jeans. Her natural and soft make up and hair complemented her simple outfit nicely. She finished off her outfit with a pair of delicate silver earrings, an ear cuff and a ring to add a spark of feminine touch.

Fashion trends come and go depending on the changing seasons. However, you can never go wrong with simple items. This Fashionista showed that basic pieces like black shirts and silver jewelry can make a striking difference in an outfit. Start investing in a few quality basic items, and have fun experimenting with classic and timeless silhouettes!

How To: Are you one of those people that have a lot of clothes but still can’t manage to find a nice outfit every morning? I’m guilty. Try going simple by pairing basic pieces like a white T-shirt or a pair of comfortable jeans with statement jewelry or scarves. You would be surprised at how effortlessly cute you would look.
