ALL IN THE DETAILS: Traditional Twists

We all have that one staple outfit that we wear at least once a week. It’s your quick fix for all fashion dilemmas. But, what if one day someone asks you if you wore the same thing just the other day and you don’t know how to respond. To not get stuck in this awkward situation, accessorizing your go-to outfit allows you to dress it up or dress it down and create a new look each time. As the days get gloomier and the weather gets colder, it is the perfect time to break out those scarves and scavenge through your never-ending shoe collection. I mean there is a reason why Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld are never found without sunglasses. These three simple accessories can tailor your standard outfit for any occasion.

This Fashionista pairs her staple outfit with a scarf, which is just what you need to do to stay cozy this winter. This scarf is a short length and reversible. It has different colors and patterns on it creating a sensible statement piece that can be worn differently each time. You can also loop the scarf around your neck to bundle up and keep warm. This Fashionista is wearing a pair of perforated loafers with tassels. The small details complement the classic look she was going for. To tie everything together she wears round sunglasses that give the look a retro but timeless feel. The tortoise frames make it classic which compliments the tartan scarf and tassel loafer, thus creating a traditional outfit with all the trimmings. These accessories will never go out of style.

The Fashionista completes her ensemble with a grey loose T-shirt, black leather jacket and black trousers. These are all pieces that are great separate and together. It is something easy to throw on yet chic for those days you’re running late to class.

How To: Sunnies are the perfect fix to hide tired eyes and also show your personality with different shapes, colors and styles. A classic loafer or flat with a tassel or pom gives the outfit a subtle, unique touch. Adding a scarf to any outfit can keep you warm and acts as another piece to your outfit, so make sure to play around with different colors, sizes and textures.
