We’re springing ahead into a colorful season of rich reds, soothing blues and hot pinks — but that doesn’t mean you have to pack away your favorite black dresses until fall. One of spring’s hottest trends — global vibes — is a celebration of beads, tassels, embroidery, color and crochet. In other words, the eclectic life! All you need to update your favorite LBD is a funky necklace, bold earring or stack of bangles. Or, how about a pop of color handbag? This is the season to funk up your accessories, and have a little fun with fashion! Here’s a look at how I added global vibes to accent my favorite draped black dress from Karen Kane.
Is there anything more simple yet elegant than the classic little black sheath dress? The style is a fashion mainstay, thanks to its flattering silhouette and comfort. But I can’t get enough this modern version from Karen Kane, which boasts a unique draped front for a relaxed vibe. The contemporary styling perfectly lends itself to the office with a cropped blazer; date night with a soft trench; or weekend with a boyfriend denim jacket.
The accents are the start of this style show, bringing a global vibe to this lovely frock. This bold red fringe necklace becomes the focus of the look, with its punch of color. To better emphasize the necklace, I chose large stud earrings to add a bit of shine, and thick silver bangles for a hint of arm candy. I also added a cute red crossbody bag by Coach to emphasize the necklace and add a pop of color. But it’s perhaps the shoes that give the look it’s most fierce statement. A statement block heel with copper glitter keeps the shine flowing from head to toe. Love!
Eclectic accessories are making a bold statement for spring, so why not try to integrate a few key pieces into your favorite looks — like an LBD — now?
