Accessories have the ability to transform a simple outfit into an extremely creative ensemble. No matter how great the clothes, an outfit can fall flat without the perfect adornment. This season, we’ve put together four on-trend accessories that ladies on campus are sporting. Now, we may love them ourselves, but what do members of the opposite sex think about what’s in this season?
