Accessorize Your Look from A to Z
by Nicole Brewer
Great accessories are like fashion tools. You can use them to dress up the most basic outfits or completely transform your look from one occasion to the next.
This season, the hottest accessories are all about re-inventing the classics with jaw-dropping designs, interesting new shapes and irresistible colors and prints.
Use these fierce fashion tools to turn up the heat on your spring wardrobe with standout accessories in bright, bold colors.
Compliment jewel tones with statement gold jewelry like eye-catching earrings, layered necklaces and cuff bracelets or pop off neutrals like nude, white or all black with rich, golden cuffs, or vintage inspired brooches.
This season’s arm candy? Mix & match bangles in all different shapes, colors and textures. Color block any outfit with layers of bangles and stock up on the latest accessory staple.
Streamline your silhouette with spring’s sexy and sleek mini clutch. Go totally vibrant with neon bright colors or try safari style with edgy reptilian prints. Ladylike box bags get just as much attention in rich neutral colors for a look that’s Madmen chic.
Platform wedges, updated espadrilles, and ladylike sling backs are this spring’s must-have fashion shoes. So have fun in bright citrus colors or wild graphic prints and brighten up any monochromatic look. Or, save your prints for your pumps with sweet florals or petite polka dots.
The secret to accessorizing is in knowing what works best with your style, body type and personality. So, consider that less is more and choose quality over quantity for the perfect little extras that add new dimension to your everyday style.
I can’t get enough bangles and I live in my platform wedges! Here, I love stacking up neutrals and layering interesting shapes.
