Accessories are the final touch to most outfits but they are much more than the cherry on that proverbial sundae. The wrong jewelry, bag or belt can ruin a look that is otherwise put-together. By the same token, the right accessories can enhance and even transform a basic outfit. Many times, dressing is not complete without our favourite add-ons.
In the latest Guests of Fashion contest, we asked our followers to show us how they complete their outfits with hats, watches, bracelets and more. It comes as no surprise that the winner of our weekly style search is a trend-savvy Parisian who uses colours, stripes and sparkles to create the ultimate accessorized look.
After completing an online journalism course, Nadine of the blog Nadinezvous.com decided to build on her interest in style and share her fashion sense with the world. She is heavily inspired by the city she lives in, ever-fashionable Paris, and brings a sort of high class joi de vivre to each ensemble she creates. Nadine is inspired by high end brands like Balenciaga but also by Parisian street style.
Our Guest always accessorizes, as demonstrated by her winning look. Her French Marinière top from Espace Kiliwatch and black leather C&A skirt look great on their own, but with her chosen accessories, Nadine’s look lets her fashion sense truly shine through. Her red Guess heels bring out the collar on her striped shirt and her black Mango clutch transforms the entire outfit from business casual to evening chic. Our Guest has added bracelets by Mamah Doucara Creations and the final touch is amber nail polish by OPI.
