How accessories can transform any outfit

By: Advice from a 20 Something

Considering so much of my wardrobe consists of basic tees, simple knits, and classic skinny jeans, I often rely on accessories to complete a look. This outfit is a perfect example of that. I started with a cozy sweater that I actually found in the Men's section at Urban Outfitters! I wasn't in the mood for regular blue jeans, so I decided to swap them for some white skinny jeans. I find that white jeans can totally transform a look and take it to a new level.

But a neutral sweater and white jeans isn't much of a complete outfit. This is where my accessories come in. When I say accessories, I mean hats, scarves, jewelry, bags, and even shoes. These additional pieces can seriously make all the difference in your outfit, transforming it from basic to edgy (or even making it seasonally appropriate) in an instant. To winterize my outfit (for a California winter, mind you), I decided to add a scarf with rich tones and texture as well as a leather hat. To bring out those warm tones in the scarf, I went with a brown leather bag and suede booties.
