Another denim and leather look! Possibly taking cues from the Autumn-Winter 2011 Fashion Shows in Europe, fashionista Folake Kuye Huntoon isn’t afraid to mix her colors with the basic denim shirt and girly leather skirt from H&M. She actually collects denim shirts, so we bet she’s had plenty of practice in how to style it. We just love how she made her trusty denim shirt look feminine with rolled up sleeves, and dressed up with her juicy-colored accessories: a Rachel Zoe leather hand bag with fringe detail ($179.88) in “Burnt Sienna”; vintage Maasai beaded necklace and Linda Lu earrings.
We think she has her finger on the pulse of two hot trends right now: fringe and color! Want to try her look out? Create some style noise with big, bold statement jewelry: layers of beaded necklaces and long dangly earrings create a decorative border and frame the face area. Throw in a poofy skirt and you’re good to go!
