Accessories are the best way to update your look. You can add little edge with new styles and colors, or go for timeless pieces. Wearing one simple accessory takes even the simplest of looks to the next level! These are my top 5 accessories of the moment. #makeastatement
#1- PIN IT! Here are a few of my favourite pins on my cargo jacket. I went for a military vibe cause military is having a major moment! I styled a khaki jacket with a tule skirt. These pieces are on point and practical. Along with my pins, I accessorized with a lovely scarf #westernlove, but a hippie vibe with luxe-boho accents is also very acceptable and chic.
#2- Let's talk about the CHOCKER. This neck-hugging piece we all wore in the '90s (remember those faux-tattoo versions?) is making a serious comeback. The beauty about this accessory is that it comes in different variations so you can rock a fur chocker for the winter season! An added bonus is you don't even need to spend that much money on it. Should you choose to go the necklace route, simply take a piece of black ribbon or even a shoelace and create your own.
#3- When people hear the words “SOCKS with sandals,” they think of an extremely awkward look normally found on the feet of tourists and grandfathers. Even though the Japanese have been rocking this trend for YEARS, socks with sandals is a great way to keep summer alive and your feet warm. Aside from having toasty feet, this often-feared combo is actually very trendy and not the fashion faux pas that you might think, and now is the time to turn this fashion don’t into a fashion do.
#4- The POM POM :Cute, cuddly, furry, lovable — these are all words that describe the accessory taking the fashion world by storm: the pom pom bag charm. Also known as a puff keychain or simply a puff, the little fluffy creatures are meant to be fastened to your handbag, tote or backpack for an added element of flare. The trend that trickled down from the runways to the streets can be adapted for any style. Puffs come in all different colors and are made in both real and faux fur.
#5-FISHNET STOCKING OR SOCKS: This trend is easier to pull of than you think so why not opt for something new this week and layer some FISHNETS into your look? It is an instant way to add texture and depth to an OOTD and this trend can be adapted for every style. Add a pair of fishnets under uber-distressed denim for double the edgy street style vibes or have a little fishnet peek out of your ankle grazing pants. Either or, fishnet is hot!
So there you have it my lovely followers, 5 easy, accessible, and funky accessories to bring an added flare to your everyday looks and bring out the supermodel in you! Don't tell me you don't have one cause we have all done the Naomi Campbell walk at least once in our lives ! LOL
