STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The It Factor

This summer is all about the It bag. The It bag is the one all of your friends (and even some strangers on the street) drool over. It’s the one your sister always steals from your closet and only grudgingly returns. And, it’s the bag that gives you an extra spring in your step, because you know you look amazing carrying it.

This Fashionista’s It bag is the stunning DRYMON clutch by ALDO, featuring a vibrant geometric pattern and tassel details. This bag is the perfect companion for a day out and about thanks to its convenient size and cross-body strap. And, the strap is removable, making it an easy day-to-night accessory.

This Fashionista pairs her It bag with other gold accessories to make a cohesive look. Her neon, metallic stacked bracelets from H&M add a pop of color to her wrist while complementing the colors found in her clutch. Birkenstock sandals are comfortable and laid back but get a serious upgrade with gold, shimmery leather.

Together, these accessories add some sparkle to this Fashionista’s casual outfit. While it’s often difficult to pair patterned accessories with a graphic T-shirt, she makes it work by keeping the main gold, black and white color palette consistent. Finally, this Fashionista pairs her summery T-shirt with a simple but flattering black skater skirt. Skater skirts are a summer staple as they’re easy to style and show off your curves.

With beautiful accessories and a glamorous color palette, this Fashionista goes for the gold.
