Trend Alert: Floral Accessories
May 23, 2007
Pretty feminine floral prints are perfect for spring, however, you have to be careful to limit them to one main focal point in your outfit so you don’t look like a poorly upholstered sofa from the ’70s. We suggest wearing this trend in discrete places, like on shoes, handbags or accessories, where a bright pop of color adds pizazz to an otherwise basic ensemble.
Here are a few statement pieces we love, plus suggestions on how to wear them.
Allover Floral Scarf ($5 @ UrbanOutfitters.com): Wear a skinny scarf or tie as a belt for an impeccable combination of crisp white and bold color. We suggest these Gap Cotton linen pants and Puff-sleeve button-front shirt.
Arielle Peep-Toe Platform Slingback ($45 @ BakersFootwear.com): These darling satin platforms would look perfect with a solid-colored sundress like this Old Navy Matte Jersey Surplice in syrah. *Deal Alert* Buy one pair of sandals at Bakers and get the second pair 50 percent off.
Life’s A Beach Floral Canvas Beach Bag ($32 @ eBags.com): This sunny yellow tote would be a great shopper when you take a stroll through the farmer’s market on a lazy Sunday in this Mossimo Black: Crossover Linen Dress.
