I know, I know, we've all heard it - it's ALL about the acccessories, but I cannot stress how important it is to have fabulous accessories on hand to help make the most of your wardrobe. Especially in cicrumstances like my own, at 6.5 months preggos I tend to just want to throw on all black and boots or heels and go, so adding a pop of color with a stunning necklace or a clutch is an easy way to add that extra umph to my look.
I love the electric blue clutch above by Kara Ross. It takes my head-to-toe-in-black-look to the next level but also works with so much more. Plus, I'm a fan of pops of color year-round, especially in the frigid winter months it's warming to add a bright color to your look.
Color block and pair it with a navy blue mini dress like Kristin Cavallari's above (love this look!) or be bold and pair it with a pair of pomegranate-red high-waisted flared pants and a white button-down. Be daring or subtle - either way you slice it, you'll get tons of use out of a bold colored clutch.
Since pastels are trending for Spring 2012, the Kara Ross pastel blush-pink clutch above is the perfect pastel to add to your wardrobe and will never go out of style since it's a neutral, classic-shaped clutch perfect to wear from day to night.
The Oscar de la Renta crystal necklace above is absolutely stunning. You must keep your outfit simple so that the stunning-ness shows itself off when you wear this piece - it's a great partner for all your LBDs (little black dresses). Don't limit yourself to only wearing it with a dress. I can see it worn outside a fitted black cashmere turtleneck tucked in to a pair of black lace, high waisted dressy short shorts with a pair of black opaque tights - fierce!
Add some golden rays of sunshine by adorining your neck with this double Sunburst Neckalce. Kick up your crisp blazer and tank with jeans-look with this necklace or rock it with a long maxi dress this summer.
Whether you need them or not, rocking a stylish pair of eyeglasses, like the Elizabeth and James pair above, provides an instant change to your look in quite the scholarly manner. You'll feel like a new person and when you're in need of a change gives you a fabulous rush of instant gratification.
I've always been a huge fan of gold and this year rose gold is making a huge comeback. The budget-friendly Marc Jacobs' rose gold watch will provide you with a polished look and brighten up your wrist.
Let's face it, platforms will never go out of style, so for Spring 2012 they're back and a must-have for all. The Alice and Olivia leather platform sandals above (also avail in black) are perfect for your Spring/Summer wardrobe and will lengthen your legs beyond belief! Don't be intimidated by the height of the heel either - looking fierce is never an easy feat. ;-)
