ALL IN THE DETAILS: 24 Karat Magic

It’s finally summer, and with the transition to a new season comes a lot of other transitions. I will be transitioning soon to my first house off-campus in New Orleans. Grads are transitioning to life after college. With the high-speed nature of the summer, with event after event, it’s easy to get in a style rut and wear simple outfits all the time. This Fashionista mastered the art of turning a simple ensemble of jeans and a white top into the perfect going out look with the use of a few gold accessories.

To start off the look, this Fashionista paired classic dark wash jeans with a breezy white halter top, similar to this one. This top is perfect for New Orleans because the open back keeps you looking and feeling cool. When I am getting ready in the summer, I have often stopped right there; I pair jeans with a black or white top and forget to accessorize. Our Fashionista went the extra mile and took this look from plain to perfection.

Let’s go from the top down. The first gold detail that this Fashionista added to her look was a gold hoop earring. Regina George may claim that hoop hearings are her thing, but this Fashionista demonstrates how easy and effortless it is to rock hoop earrings. My favorite part of the entire look is the necklace. This lariat necklace is so versatile because it is one long chain. You can wrap it, knot it, and layer it to get your desired look.

To finish off the look, this Fashionista added a Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bag and metallic gold wedges. This look transitioned from simple to sassy with the addition of a few gold details. When you’re in outfit limbo this summer, and can’t think of the right way to finish things off, just add some 24 karat magic to spice things up.
