Acessorize your Urban sport/Utility

When wearing this trend one of the most important accessories is a FIERCE pose. This trend isn't for the faint of heart and should be rocked with attitude. For Diva's only. Once you have your pose practiced and perfected you can add the additional accessories needed to style the outfit. Depending on what facet of the trend you are rocking the accessories can change slightly. I'll break it down slightly for you

When rocking the urban side of the trend again it's all depending on what you are wearing. For casual look such as Rihanna and Ciara in the Who's Wearing it post takes a pair of Amazing sunglasses and a diva strut to pull off.
The best accessories for these looks are a pair of over the knee boots, utility/military boots or a fab pair of booties. Keep it simple, black and brown colours, the attitude does the talking here. Alternatively you could go really unique and put your personal spin on it with a flowery pair of Dr. Martens. I love this look, a cute dress, denim waistcoat and dr martens, it would really fit into this trend. See here for further inspiration. When it comes to the Sport and Utility sides, I would go something a little more girly. With a sport style dress a cute pair of wedges or sandals and tan shoes/sandals for the Utility. The boots shown will also sit you into the Utility trend, think soft military.

The shoes are obviously the second most important part of the outfit following the clothes and are definitely important to this trend. Other than that the accessories tend to be quite tame, not overkill. A nice scarf (go for maybe an animal print if you're rocking the Utility facet and the natural tones) a fabulous pair of sunnies and some simple jewellery. Rock the headband like Rihanna if this is a look you like, This is Urban Chic!

For every day wear rock a simple hoop, size is your own preferance. A simple watch, possibly a mens watch see here, and bangles. Bangles is definitely the jewellery of choice. Wear a few at a time up the wrist, combining bracelets and bangles if you wish.

If you decide to rock the Jumpsuit or the hareem trousers from this trend I think a big statement necklace is amazing with little or no other jewellery on a jumpsuit that has a low cut neck or a pair of amazing big earrings if the neck is higher.
