Street Fashion 101: A Lesson in Accessories

Another lesson from the woman-on-the-street, featured on from the frenzy of New York’s Fashion Week:

Please, please, please take note: your accessories (i.e. bag, shoes, belt) do NOT need to “match.” I promise. Here, against the blank canvas of a neutral dress (grey is super-hot) we’ve got a pop of yellow in the form of an oversized Aldo bag, paired with shoes that kick “matching” to the curb, an animal print peep-toe from Stella McCartney.

And don’t worry, budget stylistas, you don’t to have high-price designer pieces like these to be put together. Bold colored hobo bags and leopard print shoes are as affordable as your nearest department store. Mix and match to look fearlessly fashionable.
