As promised, I have your weekly fashion fix. Since I haven’t had as much time as I did when I was still in school to take blog pictures, naturally I have less frequent fashion fixes. I’m hoping that I can eventually crank out two a week, but it’s tough when you work during the full daylight hours of Monday through Friday. Fewer posts have been tough since I have acquired some pretty sweet pieces over the past two months that I’m absolutely dying to share.
Lately, I’ve been all about the details. I feel as though how you wear your clothing says a lot more about you than the pieces themselves. Designer brands only can go so far. It’s the little things in fashion that get me really excited; the turn of a cuff, the roll of a pant, the perfectly paired jewelry and that sweet spot with the number of buttons you choose to leave open/unopened. I’m a total details nerd, hence why I’m so in love with menswear.
But I digress…some of my favorite new items have fallen into the accessories realm. I’ve been really big into rings for the past few months and gold jewelry in general. I feel like when you get a good collection of rings, cuffs, and necklaces of various metals, you can practically mix and match them with any outfit. That’s how it should be, too. I hate when people buy a necklace and they say, “what can I wear with this?” It shouldn’t be like that – you shouldn’t build your outfits around your jewelry; you should have a rounded assortment of jewelry to go with any outfit. Personally, I separate my jewelry into two categories by wearing occasion: when I want to feel fancy and when I want to feel like a badass. This fashion fix fell on a day when I was feeling the latter, so I went for basics layered with bold accessories. I stepped out in my new polka dot skinnies from Lands’ End Canvas, my go-to chambray, studded flats, and pops of neon for an eye-catching ensemble.
