Accessories Report

The sun is shining, temperatures are in the 50s and 60s and birds are chirping; that can only mean one thing. Spring is here! After a brutal winter of boots, puffy jackets and gloves I am so thrilled to be seeing flats, skirts and dresses worn among fellow students. Perhaps my favorite spring trend I’ve been seeing is the use of bright colored accessories. Nothing says spring has sprung better than a burst of color in an outfit.

This week’s Fashionista does just this by carrying an adorable Steve Madden shoulder bag in bright pink. I love how the pink is the only noticeable color in her ensemble to draw all the attention to her bag. Whether worn over the shoulder or on the arm, this bag provides a pop of color that captures anyone’s eye as they walk by. To complete her look she rocks a sleek leather jacket with stud details, a black and white striped blouse and sunglasses. On bottom she wears a simple pair of blue jeans and nude flats to keep the rest of her ensemble neutral so the bag can pop.

When shopping for your bright burst of color this season, consider a pink bag. It’s very bold but so high fashion when worn in an understated way like this week’s Fashionista. If pink’s not your thing, perhaps try a softer mint or sky blue color. Whichever you choose, you can’t go wrong adding a burst of color to your ensemble!

Spotted: The 3.1 Philip Lim fall 2014 ready-to-wear runway show featured a variety of bags in different shades of eye-popping colors.
