The hint of spring is in the air. Could it be the 50 degree weather? The barrage of Saint Patty's Day t-shirts in every store? Or could it simply be the fashion? Indeed, the latter it is. With spring comes change, renewal, and haute accessories.
In order to compliment that new breezy silk shirt and boyfriend jeans,or the designer graphic tee and your favorite True Religions, one must have the perfect accessory. The new trend for ladies, is blending femininity with edginess. Not enough to take away from our girlish charm, but enough to distinguish that you are eons away from the school yard.
Sandals are embellished with leather contrasting ruffles, featuring gold, and pewter grommets. Silver jewelry is taking a backseat, to the "dirty luxe" look or bronze, gold and pewter. Gladiator sandals are back, but have a different twist: heels, stiletto, wedge, chunky and architectural cut outs of wooden and metal soles. Try these only if you're bold and fierce enough, as singer Rihanna would say. It must go with the "right" outfit.
In addition to the fabulous springy outfits we all love, one must have the perfect sun kissed hair. Whether in a timeless chignon, a messy bun, short and spiked, braided and extended or wild and fluffy curls, the hair cannot always stand on its own. J.Crew has introduced satin and silk ribboned headbands with embroidery, jewels, stones, and even feathers to compliment your favorite coif. Many other stores have different versions of each. Be sure to check out the latest hair jewelry around in Target, Ann Taylor, Nine West, BCBG Max Azria and Macy's.
