The fashion world is no stranger to stripes. From classic nautical to pinstripes, stripes have been a fashionable mainstay for decades. But spring 2017 is bringing in a new, bolder look at this timeless pattern. Think bright colors, patchwork patterns, allover stripes and even contrasting widths. If it’s a major stripe statement, it’s happening this spring. Here’s a look at how I styled it with another one of my favorite trends, the silky bomber jacket! Continue reading →

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.

The Dress

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. coach-bag-and-marc-fisher-shoes

The Accessories

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?
