When you hear the term “statement piece,” a vision of chunky jewelry is probably the first thing that comes to mind. When I think statement pieces, I think of anything that will set an outfit apart from the norm: bold heels, a gorgeous handbag, or something a little more unconventional like a cherry red lip or fun manicure. This week’s Chic dons her favorite statement piece of choice: a sweet mini bag. Who knew that a little bag could pack a big punch? Keep scrolling to see how our Chic of the Week turned a simple accessory into her favorite statement…

Congrats to our latest Chic of the Week, Alina!

Our Chic of the Week has the cutest statement piece!

Red lips and a blush blazer is the ultimate combination!

This week's Chic is beautiful in blush!

With a classic color palette like this one, Alina can do no wrong. From her ballerina pink blazer down to her classic heels, this ensemble is a winner in my book. Did you check out her accessories? I’m smitten over her sparkly ear jacket and simple pendant necklace. Not to mention that berry pout! Here’s what Alina had to say about how a small change made a big impact on her outfit…

I’ve been carrying around with me quite a massive bag on an everyday basis for as long as I can remember. It was a no-brainer, since I could fit all of my stuff (and I have loads of stuff that I apparently need to have with me) and basically my whole life inside a bag. That was until I first carried a mini bag with me. And let me tell you, my life has changed! I found out that, as a matter of fact, all I really need to have with me fits in a significantly small bag. You have no idea what a relief it was to walk around without a heavy burden in my hand/on my shoulder.

Seeing as how I lug around a giant bag on the regular, I know I can definitely take a tip from Alina!

What’s your favorite statement piece?

Let me know in the comments.
