Accessories Report

As the University of Kansas campus begins to bloom with red and yellow tulips, your style should also begin to blossom as winter says its goodbyes. Whether your spring closet consists of florals, neons, pastels, neutrals or all of the above, it’s essential to be able to go through the seasonal conversion process efficiently.

A smart way to do this is to make sure to mix your prints and neutrals wisely. One can never have too many neutrals, because they are so practical to use throughout every season and year by year. This Fashionista does a wonderful job at landscaping the neutral and print mix. Her white button-down shirt is a piece that can play many different roles, whether it be an interview, class, going out with the girls or picking up some groceries. It’s one of the most versatile articles of clothing one can own, and a smart one to invest in. She uses this shirt to create a feminine look tucked into her khaki A-line skater skirt. The only accessory she pairs with this duo is her floral combat boots. These boots perfectly match the rest of her outfit, and creates a style that is unique, simple and delicate— just like the flowers that are blooming on campus and on her boots.

Investing thought into accessories is important because the right ones can withstand the tests of time as well as fashion trends, much like neutrals do.

Spotted: The Peter Som spring 2012 ready-to-wear collection and Oscar de la Renta‘s resort 2014 collection both exemplify the pairing of floral prints and neutrals.
