For example, they can be wrapped around tightly for warmth, hung loosely for a cool style, or looped and pulled through for a simple chic look.
Don’t forget a warm hat to go with your scarf. A cotton two toned fisherman style hat offers a clean autumn look. A beanie hat with a leather strap comes in beautiful fall colors. Or try a knitted winter slouchy hat that comes in grey, off white, or black. If you have a gal that likes more structure, then try a wool bowler hat.

There are few seasonally appropriate patterns like the floral print. This design has made a huge comeback in recent years so why not take advantage and add some blooming foliage to your spring and summer ensembles.
Floral prints are perfect for the spring and summer time. They come in a variety of color palettes, from neutral to neon, to bold, and earth tones, you name it. The nature of these patterns is easily reflected the blooming foliage you can readily see this time of year so why not use it to inspire some of your outfits? Add some life and dimension to your look by adding one of these fashion accessories or statement fashion pieces.
Accent or statement pieces can work much like accessories. Leggings, printed skinny jeans and the like can be mixed and matched in any number of ways to create various outfits. These are especially good for making your basics look more dynamic and thoughtful. Plus pairing solid tops or tees with these items adds just the right amount of balance to your outfit. You can also use clothing items like sweaters or cardigans in the way you would use an accessory. Add some depth and color to an outfit of solid colors and patterns with a floral cardigan or shrug. Use some of the colors used in the print or wear it over neutrals and basics to maximize your look.
Smaller fashion accessories are also great for flaunting your springtime florals and floral prints. Canvas bags are especially popular, whether they come in the form of a trendy backpack, hobo bag, or crossbody. If you are looking for something a little more classy then a small clutch will do the trick as well. This sort of handbag can be worn to both casual and more formal events easily. Scarves are another great option and can be added to most any outfit. Not only that but they serve a practical purpose, too! They go wonderfully under any light jacket, fitted blazer, or sweater.
You can also opt for jewelry and other statement pieces. Large bib necklaces can feature floral themes and designs, whether in metalwork or in inset fabric with lace and other materials. Large chunky bangles can feature this design as well and can be easily added to ensembles. But if you’re looking for a more subtle way to add this print to your look, you can look beyond jewelry to other small fashion accessories like skinny belts or shoes. These can help bring balance to an outfit, whether you use the design elsewhere or simply wish to tie together an ensemble of different colors and solid pieces.

With spring arriving it’s soon going to be great weather for days spent outside. But long days cause a Goldilocks problem. A clutch is too small to hold all the stuff you’ll need and a hobo bag has too much room. But a crossbody handbag is just right!
This red textured faux leather crossbody handbag is the perfect size at eleven inches long, four inches wide, and nine inches high. The twenty inch adjustable shoulder strap allows you to set it to a comfortable height for your body.
A crossbody bag is great in general because it allows you to feel secure when walking along a boardwalk or on a city street. An added security feature of this bag is a zipper under the top flap.
The crest like design on the flap gives the faux leather bag a great vintage feel. The red is a nice subdued color but if you prefer something more neutral, it also comes in black.

As basic and neutral as they might originally sound, white accessories make for great beach or resort wear. Not only does the color make any skin tone look instantly and effortlessly tanner than usual, but this color goes with whatever you plan on wearing.

White accessories, such as bags, hats, enamel bangles or necklaces, or light, chiffon or satin scarves, give off that effortless resort chic look while matching absolutely anything you may wear. White can be easily dressed up or down and is one of the ultimate neutral colors. It can transform to meld in with whatever color palette you’re wearing, whether it’s jewel tones or pastels.
Some textures and styles are more appropriate for summer or vacation wear. Oversized hats and other woven or handmade material comes into fashion once the weather warms up so grab your floppy hat and woven hobo bag. These styles look effortless and a little bohemian, which suits the vacation season and warm weather. It evokes that feeling of relaxation and leisure that is synonymous with vacation. Oversized anything pretty much goes, including totes or flowy tops and dresses. You can layer light chiffon or silk scarves, wrapping them loosely around your neck in the warmth of the afternoon and draping them like a shawl over your shoulders once it cools in the evening. Loose, light cardigans and kimonos are also a great leisurely look to layer and experiment with. These relaxed looks will have you feeling calmer in no time.
These looser, lighter styles will help you break out of your schedule and your fashion routine, and can be appropriated for any personal style. If you happen to be headed somewhere warm or you are just planning on having some down time away from your everyday life, you can look great while feeling comfortable, too. Willowy, bohemian styles are perfect for relaxing, allowing you to remain chic and fabulous, even on your days off.
