Outfit of the Week: All Zipped Up

I have a penchant for all the zippers I’ve been seeing this season! From exposed zippers to zippers used as trim, I can’t get enough of them. They add an unexpected edge to almost any outfit, without the obvious use of studs or other embellishments. If you look closely at my outfit photo, you can see that both The Dazzle Belt and the Zipper Foot Heels are trimmed with – what else? – zippers! The belt also has an amazing bundle of rainbow-colored rhinestones in the center of its bow. (It’s color week here at Modcloth!)

Because I based my outfit off of fun accessories, I paired them with the simple In-Vest Dress. I loved the cozy winter-weight fabric and the purple flecks that added a bit of color. Plus, the built-in vest is adorable. To bring out the purple of the dress, and because it’s the last day of color week, I wore the Ultraviolet Tights. The finishing touches? The Teela Bangle and the Lita Clutch in Fender.

What fall trends inspire you this season? I want to hear about them!

    That sure is one cute girl! And, she sure knows how to make a good-looking outfit! And, hurray for exposed zippers – so Schiaparelli chic.

    There’s nothing I enjoy more than fashion and writing. It only makes sense that I take my Aunt Vicki’s advice to follow your blog.

    I am loving all the zippers and bright colors that are hot right now. You nailed this look!

    You are amazing! I love the contrast of the colored tights with the black dress and the zipper foot heels! I wish you could be my personal shopper!
