For me, it's the fuchsia shorts that complete this outfit. It's that bright pop of color that brings a certain energy and appeal to this whole look. To tie different pieces together and create a unified ensemble, I added matching fuchsia bangles and a fuchsia ring into the mix as well. I love finding pieces in my closet that match certain accessories I have - that's what I call a "win." Since each clothing piece in this outfit is a solid color, I decided to also utilize my accessories in order to add some pattern to this outfit (accessories are a girl's best friend). That's where this fabulous dalmatian print clutch comes in - I thought it added the missing piece, that little dose of pattern and excitement that this outfit otherwise lacked. It's all about taking simple pieces, putting them together, and adding striking color, prints and textures through accessories in order to create a stylish and unique look. 
Your outfit is only as good as the accessories you pair it with.
