YBF Trend: Exotic Skinned Accessories
Aug 04 | by claire
Hey Young, Black, and Fabulous folks! It's Claire from The Fashion Bomb, the web's only stop for urban fashion, trends, and celebrity looks for less! For my first guest blogspot, I'm going to let you in on a Hollywood trend: Exotic Accessories. Aside from their posh aesthetic, bags, belts, and shoes in python, snake, and alligator are surprisingly versatile, complementing anything from print dresses to more casual t's and tops. Depending on your personality, you can choose to don a lot or a little. Let's see how celebs rock it right: Beyonce uses her large exotic skinned tote to upgrade her look... ...whether she's wearing all white for dinner with her boo or sporting a print top and jeans to dogde the paps. Of course her less camera shy little sis follows suit... ...wearing a large snakeskin tote with polka dots and frills. If you're not into big bags, a clutch can work for any outfit, from colorful print maxi dresses... ...to cocktails in muted navy or white... ...and even works for simple jeans, t, and a blazer. Still too much? Try a shoe, which can act as an unexpected exclamation point to a neutral outfit... ...or the statement accessory for jeans and a t-shirt... And the super shy can always opt for a belt... ....Mariah and Mary J. do it justice! Exotic is almost always chic, but remember, just a splash is necessary... ...you don't want to look too wild! Splurge on the following exotic accessories: 1. Christian Louboutin Python Slingbacks, $1, 095. 2. Chloe Cyndi Leather Tote, $2,200. 3.Jimmy Choo Glenys Gladiator Sandals, $1,295. 4.
