Guest Post: Accessorizing the Latest Trends

I’m out celebrating the biggest feasting day of the year, so today’s post comes from a guest writer, Aleya on how to accessorize the latest trends. Love her advice!

“The fashion trends that we’re seeing this fall are fun, energetic and strong.  While it’s easy to pick up on the fashion inspirations that our favorite designers are showing on the runways it may be harder to figure out how to accessorize them. Here are some tips on how to accessorize the latest trends so that you can get the most out of your great new look.

The Menswear Trend

Whether you choose to wear a menswear inspired suit or a shirt and tie, make this look more feminine by adding heels. Go for loafer shoes with a chunky heel and tassel to keep with the menswear trend – and no worries, these shoes are all over place. Glam up your look by incorporating a gold link necklace to your ensemble. Go for simple with one, or layer a few to look extra extravagant. Style Tip: In keeping with the menswear trend, keep things oversized. It’ll look like you borrowed it from your man 😉

The 70s Look

The 70s are back and in full force too. From straight hairdos with a part in the middle, natural makeup, and wide legged pants are everywhere. Get the head to toe look by by wrapping a scarf around the base of your ponytail (style tip: flat iron your hair first for the right effect). Load up on stackable bangles and grab some platform shoes.  Platforms lengthen your legs and offer some cushion to dance all night. Though I’m sad to say, no disco ball included.

The Maxi Skirt

There’s nothing like a flowing long skirt to make you feel like you’re flying instead of walking. You can accessorize your skirt by incorporating contrast into your wardrobe. For example, wearing a pair of great espadrille shoes and an oversized snakeskin clutch. The contrast of two different textures & fabrics makes for great impact. If you’re not into reptile skin, try an oversized belt with your skirt – it adds some flair and could look funky with a large chunky belt or sophisticated with a skinny belt.”
