Trend Alert: Accessories

Navigating the maze of accessories can be tough, here are a few no-fail tricks that work to jazz up any outfit. One of my favorite things to do{and celebrities rock this all the time} is to add a pop of color somewhere to an outfit. It could be a handbag, a necklace, a shoe, anything really.  Here is a great example of a simple jeans and top {a fabulous top at that, its Sweet Peaby Staci Frati Ruffle Sleeve Bib Top} with a pop of color in the shoe. The bright purple is fun and unexpected-love this look!

Another hot accessory trend is an over-sized clutch. What girl doesn’t love an over-sized bag?? This look is so functional and fashionable, love that combo don’t you?? This look clearly has a pop of color in the pants, and a busy print in the Keelin Squareneck Lace Top by Velvet so the neutral black and brown accessories are spot on. Notice how the clutch is black and the bangles are brown, don’t be afraid to mix!

 And lastly, something that I like to call the three B’s: Boots, belt and bangles. Boots have been major for the past several seasons and there are no signs of that slowing down. They can instantly add some rock-n-roll, retro, classy, or cowboy to your look. Belts are are great way to create a waist, and can even work great to camouflage a waist when wore when a blousy top. Bangles are so easy to throw on and it seems that ‘the more the merrier’ trend with them is still going strong. So don’t be afraid to stack them up! I love how all three of these accessories jazz up this simple{yet beautiful} black tunic dress by Ella Moss. Again notice the pewter on the belt and the gold bangles, mixing these is ok and looks chic, don’t be afraid to try it!
