STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Dark But Chic

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Dark But Chic

I was rushing into work and her leather backpack and minimalistic outfit caught my eye just like it would have caught yours! Instead of sporting any old bag, this Fashionista chose the silent but deadly route. This route has been a major trend in fashion in the recent years, and I think it will stick around for a little bit longer: leather accessories. According to Vogue.com a leather backpack is one of the many bags that “will give you the coolest look on the block.” The leather backpack is a silent but deadly accessory for the plain fact that it is simple but can transform a look from typical to edgy, interview to night out or from work to play! Whether the leather backpack is faux or real one can still mimic her look effortlessly. Leather and black are two of my favorite things to play with when I am picking out an ensemble and her look gave me inspiration, and you might agree!

The summer doesn’t equal less clothing and/or accessories, it means just the opposite. It is a time to play around with your closet and to take risks! Many stores are selling stylish backpacks this season; Urban Outfitters, Zara, Forever 21, ASOS and H&M are just a handful. These are some options are on the cheaper side, but if you want to go to the dark side Chanel, Gucci and kate spade are some of the  pricier options!

She was heading back from an interview and if she was interviewed solely off appearance, she had to have snagged that job!

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK?:  My favorite thing is black, like what I have on now is all black, but the key is adding different shades of black. For example my leather backpack. When you have on all black I feel you just look refined.”
