Accessories Report

We have been experiencing a wave of warm days here in Richmond, and the hope that spring will soon arrive is lingering in the air.  Anytime that we get the wonderful chance to take a break from winter weather, Fashionistas/os use this rare opportunity to showcase their latest spring attire. Now that the weather is slowly becoming warmer the atmosphere on campus definitely changes. Instead of heading straight home after class students linger around campus, sit outside, read a good book and socialize while enjoying the amazing weather.

As I was making my way around campus, this Fashionista’s outfit caught my eye immediately as I saw her passing by. She was wearing a fun and flirty black and white printed dress. The dress is perfect for a warm spring day. I also loved how she added a pop of color to her outfit by paring up the dress with hot pink espadrille shoes. Espadrille shoes are a big trend this upcoming spring, and they can be seen in a variety of colors and bold prints such as floral and tribal. Lastly, this Fashionista accessorized with a simple wrap around studded bracelet to complement the look.

In terms of creating outfits, one of the great things about the spring time is that you can have tons of fun with your accessories. Accessories are a great way to bring any outfit to the next level. Instead of wearing hot pink espadrille shoes this dress could have been paired up with a coral or teal waist belt. This great dress could have also been accessorized with colorful strappy sandals and a pair of chic sunglasses. If you’re wondering where you can purchase stylish and inexpensive accessories both Forever 21 and H&M are exceptional stores that offer the latest trends in accessories.

Spotted: On the runway of Valentino spring 2012 ready-to-wear collection. Models can be seen wearing laced espadrille shoes.
