Embellish UP Your Outfit: Winter Release Edition

By Megan Stapleton

The Winter issue is days away, and with that here is a post that represents what Purpose will have included. Embellishments have made a huge come back recently, and they can really pull together an outfit if you pick the right pieces. The classic tassel earrings are what’s trending in terms of embellishments on campus right now, but there are other options to add to an outfit other than earrings.

You can never go wrong with a classic biker jacket, but adding a little bit of dazzle to it might make you stand out from the crowd, like the one styled above. Take your leather jacket to another level by adding jewels or a pop of color to pull the outfit together.

This is the Jean Jacket 2.0, it has faux fur for added style and keeps you extra warm during the winter. Rock this jacket with black jeans and your Darty Saturday shoes or wear it dressed up with flare jeans. The faux fur adds extra effect to the outfit so you don’t need a lot of jewelry.

Mix faux fur with leather and you’ve got yourself a fashion statement that will make you look good no matter where you’re at (aka London). Add leather leggings and black booties to finish the look off. Sofia looks better than the Buckingham Palace in my opinion.

Fringed jeans, faux fur coats or embellished shirts all work to make an outfit a statement. Try something new this winter and add a little extra fabric to your look! Don’t forget to check out our Winter issue Purpose coming this Friday!
