The clouds have parted and, after a chilly spring, we are finally seeing the light of day! Shed some light on your closet with our Summer Accessories "It" List because this summer is your time to shine . . .
The rich warm color of cognac may bring to mind many memories of summers past- the color of the saddle that belonged to the horse that you used to ride at Camp Whatchamacallit, the color of your skin at the end of the summer, or the drink that your shared with Bobby Jones under the old oak tree (don't worry, we're not telling!)
Flash forward to Summer 2014 and get ready to savor that Cognac ( color) all over again. It is pretty simple to find a handbag or a shoe in this warm hue, however, you will get double the fashion points for tying it into your jewelry. Try an amber or topaz piece of jewelry to really amp up your summer time wardrobe.
Lets take it back for a second- time that is. It is fun to wear what you have worn before yet watch how it has evolved to fit the lifestyle and mindset of fashion today. Try a 70's inspired snakeskin clutch, paired with a button-down shirt, a cigarette pant, a menswear inspired loafer, and a 60's nod to the past with a foot in the future!
Or should we say - Buckle up! It's time for a ride on the fashion roller coaster! While fashion is always up and down with its trends, one thing is for sure, buckles are always,always, always in style, and we are not talking belts. Right now buckles are seen in backpacks, shoes, and even jewelry.
All Tied Up
Things are heating up, and we're not just talking the weather. Temperatures are sure to rise with a style that eludes to your other side - think peekaboo footwear, handcuff jewelry, bikini bracelets and sexy leather wrap belts - Tie one on!
The Golden Rule
This summer's most scandalous romance happens to be between black and gold. Black is gilded with gold everywhere from goddess worthy gladiator sandals or a stunning wristlet. Our favorite of the black and gold affair has to be a gold chain kissed with black onyx. This is a trend that you can embrace for a while since b+g 4eva is probably being carved on a tree as we speak.
The seeds of your fashion have budded and are getting ready to blossom with florals, one of summer's favorite looks. Floral prints are being seen everywhere right now, so why not go out of the box a little and smell the roses? From floral cutout handbags paired with Summer's white dresses and gold footwear to the grown up version of the daisy chain, this season is smelling sweet!
Whether you are vying for the black and gold look or the Cognac craze, remember that your own personal style and beauty is what makes "It"!
