ACCESSORIES REPORT: Time for Patterns

Accessories Report

With our brains draining out of the school mindset and slowly greeting the summer, we all want to wind down and relax. We want breaks from homework, class and work so that we can reflect on the semester and refresh for next year. Lucky for us, with relaxation comes comfy clothing. Yoga pants, soft tees and summer sweaters are always favorites to keep us feeling relaxed, but this season a real game changer is the palazzo pant.

These stylish pants come in a variety of fabrics, colors and patterns. They’re comfy enough to wear while you lounge around or can be dressed up for a fun summer night. They even have shorts that are reminiscent of this style so that you can stand the heat. These pants tend to speak for themselves, so often the best top is a simple one. Crops tops and simple V-necks are the go-to for wild-patterned bottoms, so white tees, like the one this Fashionista is wearing, are the perfect complement. Similar to the shirt, neutral shoes are all you really need to complete the look.

Since the pants are so loud and colorful, this is an opportune time to take advantage of simple accessories. Small necklaces, beaded headbands or even light bangles would spruce up this cozy outfit, but above all, a watch is a perfect topper when you need a simple accessory. Watches have stood the test time and truly offer so much to an outfit. Small, delicate ones could give off a business vibe or a trendy wrap watch can give the effect of a bracelet stack. No matter what the size or design, watches are bound to stand out. Even paired with the craziest of pants, a classic watch can say so much more.

Spotted: When it comes to men’s fashion, watches are always a good idea. The timeless look of a men’s watch is one even designers can’t help but appreciate. Givenchy uses watches to accessorize during their spring 2014 collection.
