“Accessories make the outfit.”
I know I’ve heard the phrase over and over, and I’ve probably even spoken the words a time or two. And for the most part, I believe it. Two women can take the sames jeans and top and turn them into two entirely different looks by accessorizing. I think that’s what I kind of love about blogging outfits: sharing how I’ve taken something off the rack that hundreds, thousands, or however many people have and how I’ve made it my own.
But at the same time, I occasionally find myself struggling. I’m somewhat of a simple girl. I like classic pieces and don’t take too many style risks because that’s just not my personality. Sure, I love layering on a cardi, skinny belt, or statement necklace, but some days I’m more comfortable in a pair of studs and a single bangle.
And honestly, I’m kind of cool with it. I don’t mind being more timeless than trendy. It may not make for a super-interesting fashion post, but hey it’s honest. And it’s me.
How would you describe your style? Are you an accessories queen, clean and simple, or somewhere in between?
