Summer Fashion Accessories 2012
I never thought I'd see neon comeback, and so strong, but not only did it find its way back into stores, neon orange seems to be THE color- I guess if we're going to make a statement, let's be loud and, well really loud! Setting aside the neon's, which is being flaunted on the catwalks coloring shoes, blouses and jeans, the other really popular colors this summer are tangerine and mint green- which I LOVE. I think what makes pastels so great is their natural, soft tones mix and match really well, so if you are like so many of us, living on a budget, this can be really helpful.
I get sidetracked easily, so let me get back to the topic and keep in mind that colors are important to trends this year(but aren't they always?!). So, accessories-
Pearls are back in fashion, really big! They are a timeless accessory, but if you are going to splurge make sure that you feel comfortable with what you are buying and that you will wear them for more than this summer; there is nothing worse than spending money to keep our closets fashionable! Natural tones are the color to choose, and they pretty much can be a piece to your necklace, bracelet, earrings or whatever accessory you choose… They are in this summer.
In addition to your accessorizing, be bold and make your statement. If you are wearing beads, whether it's a necklace, bangle or cocktail ring it should be big, bold and have a lot of shape.
Moving on to handbags, bright and colorful is definitely trendy this summer. Whether it is a bold orange or red, even purple, exotic skins and floral designs are what seem to be getting a lot of attention on the catwalk (while have to admit I am not crazy about the floral designs!). I think the key to flaunting floral patterns is in wearing them as scarves or headbands to accessorize and accentuate the rest of your outfit. A final note on handbags; there are a few out there that are suggesting lace is in, but I haven't seen it a whole lot of lace.
And a final note, shoes! Slip-on flats are in and there is an eclectic variety to suite just about every personality (and if you have multiple personalities, you can have a pair for each!). Paisley, pastels, bright, and bold shapes are a few fashionable flats that are in and can be purchased. Del Toro shoes has a wide variety of flats to choose.
