ALL IN THE DETAILS: Trinkets, Tricks and Treats

Now that fall is in full swing, and Halloween is right around the corner, one can’t resist trying to fit in as many seasonal festivities as possible into the shortest span of time. But as much as we may hate to admit it, there are only so many outfits that seem to scream “fall!” at us. That’s exactly where accessorizing comes into play. Adding an intricate necklace to an outfit can help in making it seem brand new, and can also aid in adding a personal touch. With just the right necklace, and maybe the perfect pair of shoes, an outfit can easily be transformed from either bleak to chic or from one season to another.

While out and about, I spotted this Fashionista in the pumpkin patch near campus (which is very exciting within itself). While first noticing the lace detailing in her shirt, her necklace is what really caught my eye. At first, I just thought that it was a very interesting piece. With a second look, I noticed the levels of detail put into such a small piece of art. The way the seastone is enveloped in twine adds a rustic and naturalistic vibe to the outfit as a whole, and truly adds a unique touch. To top it all off, she bought this handmade necklace from a flea market in São Paulo, Brazil. One can only hope that some of the heat traveled with her now that the fall temperatures are slowly but surely dropping.

While the necklace brings in the summer atmosphere, the construction boots bring us back into this much colder reality (at least in New Jersey). The color of these boots  adds flair to the outfit since they match the twine on the necklace, helping connect the outfit from bottom to top. Construction boots are also among the list of best boots for the season because of their levels of comfort, warmth and versatility. The sweater-like trim on these boots really helps in making this outfit seem extra comfortable, cozy, and perfect for fall. Now going against my personal set of Halloween rules, I’m going to have to avoid the tricks and treats this year and go for the trinkets because they truly do make a world of a difference when putting together your favorite fall outfit.
