Accessories Report

Spring is one of the best times of the year for style. Why, you ask? It is warm enough to wear shorts and dresses, but just chilly enough to layer jackets and lightweight scarves without getting hot. Also, this is the first time during the new year in which wearing bright colors is not only accepted, but also adored. My favorite things to wear to showcase bright colors in outfits are my accessories. Purses, bracelets, necklaces and my personal favorite, tissue scarves are just some of the few accessories that I love in bright colors. Wearing accessories is perfect for creating a pop of color in an outfit. The outfits I wear the most are the ones that are neutral with one colorful accent piece.

Today’s Fashionista shares my love of a pop of color in the spring. Her hot pink kate spade new york purse caught my attention immediately within the sea of people walking to class. Her pink bag was juxtaposed nicely against her classic beige trench coat. The Fashionista’s floral patterned blouse also had pink tones that matched her purse, allowing them both to contrast wonderfully against her neutral coat. Her other accessories that made her outfit stand out even more included gold frame aviator sunglasses, a timeless kate spade new york gold watch and gold-toned shoes with a white embroidered overlay. The gold in all her accessories helped her kate spade new york bag pop even more, as it had gold hardware as well.

Today’s Fashionista wore the quintessential spring outfit. She had a classic piece in her trench coat and paired it with a purse that was honestly made for spring. She kept her other accessories minimal, but still polished, and let her bag have a moment in the sun.

Spotted: Who on the runway showcased her beautiful clothing accented with bright, classic bags? kate spade new york, of course! She had her bright, beautiful purses on every model in her spring 2014 ready-to-wear collection.
