Let’s Neckcesssorize

XsRFknF.png

It’s no secret the neck scarf has become the biggest accessory of the season. This look has plenty of 70s flavor, but the real question is how do we use this trend to separate ourselves above the rest? Think outside the box with these these très français outfit necessities and connect even more varying aesthetics: think biker-girl-meets-bohemian, in the words of Refinery29.

Try these scarf looks with the classic leather jackets over overalls, midi-skirts, or dresses, all toughened up with some ~neckcessory~ flair. Each look, regardless of how different it may be, was tied together with the simplest of accessories- and one that definitely won’t break the bank. Check out our favorite scarf options on your very own StyleChat feed!

Fall’s Most Versatile Fashion Item: The Black Ankle Bootie

Wouldn’t it be great if there were one item in your closet that could transform into the perfect fashion accessory for any event or occasion? Well this season you’re in luck because black ankle booties have made an impression at all your favorite retail stores! An article on Popsugar shows us several ways we can take our black ankle booties from one occasion to the next!

Heading to a fashionable event? Throw on a pair of your highest stiletto booties with a chic cocktail dress, and you’ll rock the show!

Perhaps your plans don’t include a prestigious fashion event; perhaps you’re just heading to a laid-back gathering. There’s a bootie for that too! Try a flat, cutout bootie, like Jeffrey Campbell’s Everly bootie featured below.

If you’re heading to a friend’s party and you’re looking to be the most stylish one there, you can’t go wrong with a pair of black, cowboy-like high heel booties paired with a pair of skinny jeans, a chic blouse, and a leather jacket.

While black booties are great for informal occasions, high heel pointed-toe black leather booties can be perfect for a formal work event or party! Dress up your chic booties with a long dress or a little black cocktail dress.

As great as it would be to own five to ten pairs of black booties in a slightly different style, that may not always be an option for us! If you’re looking to buy just one pair that will get you through your multiple occasions, look for a pair that has a two-to-three inch high chunky heel, and an elegant yet simple silver or gold detailing. Look for a simple buckle, a cool zipper, or a hanging chain!

Let your black ankle booties take you from morning until night with a simple wardrobe change! Keep up on all the hottest trends by following StyleChatMobile on Instagram!
