SheFinds Trend Alert: Patent this, patent that

What: Patent anything

Why: Normally tame accessories are taking a walk on the wild side this season with patent. It’s all over… from bags to belts to shoes. And the best part is, it’s a really easy way to update your wardrobe. That really adorable cardigan from last spring? Pair it with a pencil skirt and use a wide patent belt to tie it all together. Need to perk up a work ensemble for happy hour? Look for patent bracelets, headbands and shoes to spice it all up.

Fashion Advice: Black patent is the easiest to wear— especially in a wide belt or clutch. Brightly hued patents grab the eye— so a little goes a long way, and they’re most easily paired with graphic black and white prints.
