Elements of Isabella’s Outfit
1. Beaded Necklaces
Isabella brought her simple outfit beyond basic with some cool accessories. Her authentic South Asian necklaces spice up her neutral, earth-toned look. Pairing a transparent necklace with a second, colorful one is a layering trick worth remembering!
2. Combat Booties
I always vote yes when it comes to booties, especially as fall arrives! The light shade of brown looks stunning against Isabella’s light wash jeans. If you look closely at the boot on the left, you’ll notice a petite floral pattern worked into the sides.
