Fundraiser for Susan G. Komen for the Cure October 17th at Pandora

Written By: Kelly Andersen Opening up your closet to a plain white tee shirt and pair of dark blue jeans may not seem like a promising duo with endless possibilities. Alone on the shelf, they could be viewed as a boring combination that isn’t likely to win you any style awards. However, this power couple is anything but boring! With the right accessories, these two classic pieces can transform into a stylish, chic look that is either casual or dressy. Acting as a blank canvas, this simple ensemble allows for inspiration using the art of accessorizing. A layered necklace, a pair of oversized earrings, or a chunky ring is a sure way to turn that outfit from drab to fab! Eye catching and unique pieces are made even more stunning when placed against a solid, neutral background. By letting the jewelry speak for itself, you know that your pieces aren’t fighting with patterned tops or over powering your outfit. For the fall, dark stones show off that deep, rich look that captures the change of season in a flawless way. One company that has caught my attention is Pandora. Their jewelry is beautifully crafted and offers the perfect opportunity to showcase your individuality. Life is filled with special moments and Pandora’s famous charm bracelets sparkle with your story. Hundreds of charms and their infinite combinations are available to commemorate every possible occasion. Once you begin adding charms to your bracelet, your loved ones will never again have trouble finding you the perfect gift! Pandora has also introduced earrings, rings, and necklaces into their collection and the effect of combining these pieces will dazzle any fashion savvy style watcher. Pandora recently opened their new location in the Mercato Plaza. Just be warned… Pandora is known to be addictive! Without the bulk of a jacket, a cardigan sweater is delicate, feminine and the perfect alternative for fall. Offered in a variety of colors and types, little sweaters can keep you warm while looking chic. Adding a sweater to an outfit can connect all of your pieces, and also spice up your wardrobe with a pop of color or an

interesting pattern. With a solid tee, the sky is the limit for you and your sweater collection! Belts are the secret weapons of your wardrobe. Often overlooked, belts can perk up your outfit and be worn in multiple ways. Simply wearing them through the specific belt holes can hold you back from experiencing all that they can give you. Skinny, layered belts can be worn over long sweaters or dresses, cinching your waist and giving you a feminine, curvy look. Thicker belts with a unique buckle can be show stopping with jeans and a tee. A belt can be your best friend and your go-to piece. Don’t leave them hanging in your closet this season; use them for all that they are worth. With a simple outfit, a great pair of shoes can let you shine and also pull your entire look together. With sandal season passing us by, a great pair of flats or heels is the perfect way to get into the fall season. Nude is the new black and a pair of nude heels are fabulous. The heels elongate your legs and their neutral look lets you wear them with whatever color you choose. If heels aren’t your thing, chocolate brown flats are perfect for fall because the color is so warm and inviting. Nude colored flats are just as fun as the heels because they still have the ability to be paired with any color top. Classic black is great, but shoes in bright colors and patterns are sure to draw attention and can add a little kick to any outfit. So the next time you find yourself rummaging through your closet and screaming, “I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!”… find your classic white tee and jeans combo and use the art of accessorizing to turn these two pieces into a complete outfit.
