Solid and Striped Scarves

Scarves are an indispensable accessory no matter what your style. Make sure you choose yours wisely!

Scarves are an indispensable part of anyone’s wardrobe. They are perfect for every season, they come in a variety of colors, prints, patterns, materials and finishes, and can be worn in so many ways that it could take you months to wear a different style every day. Spring is a great season for scarves. The transitional weather calls for versatile and practical clothing and accessories, and scarves do just that. They can provide warmth from cool breezes just as well as add some depth to an outfit. It’s useful for anyone to have at least a handful of these fashion accessories and to vary their pieces. Having some solids and some stripes can go a long way.

When it comes to solid colors, it’s always nice to have a variety. Try to have at least one neutral color that you can wear with absolutely everything. This will come in handy when you’re on the run, don’t have time to think about your outfit in too much detail, or even if a friend needs to borrow an accessory. You can choose the ever popular black, or any other neutral if you wear it often enough. You’ll also want to add some color in there as well. You can choose from pale to bold or jewel-toned to pastel, it’s all up to you. Choose one of each or go with one color palette and get a scarf in every color of that family. It’s up to you. Again, you might want to opt for colors that you wear often or alternatively ones that contrast with your clothing if you want to make more of a statement.

Stripes are basically the neutral of patterns. They are simple and sleek and can be matched with just about anything, except for maybe more stripes. These can be worn with other patterns as well, such as paisley, floral, geometric, you name it. Also, scarves with stripes can add some depth and dimension to an outfit while still essentially being a neutral. While you can have stripes in different colors, the most popular colors featured are often black and white, or navy and white, black and cream, or grey and white etc. These neutral accessories can do a lot for an outfit without using too much color that might clash with whatever you’re wearing.

Feel free to mix and match, experiment, and have fun. Scarves are one of the most versatile and useful accessories out there, so take as much advantage of them as you can!

Mix and Match Animal Print

Some of you may think that mixing different animal prints together is impossible. It can be quite doable if you know what you’re doing…

Mixing and matching patterns can definitely be tricky. It is very much like matching colors and uses many of the same elements in order to do so successfully and yet is also more complex. When it comes to mixing animal print there is a way to make it possible.

The first rule about wearing more than one pattern in general is to be subtle. Too much of both will definitely overpower your look so you will have to find just the right balance. One way to go is use prints that use the same color scheme, such as black and brown or black and white. This way the patterns essentially “match” and you can break up the outfit with solid colored pieces and accessories that either offset or tone down the overall look. One thing you can do for instance is say wear a black and white cheetah print top with a neutral snakeskin clutch under a solid cardigan and with a solid colored pant to add balance.

Another thing you can do is mix prints that are the same or similar but use differing color palettes so that there is still some symmetry there but is made all the more dynamic and interesting. You wouldn’t want to wear one thing right over another so it’s best to choose your pieces wisely. If you’re going with a pant and top that feature patterns, then break it up with a belt, bag, scarf or even a combination of all three. You can use a neutral color like beige or black that will always be safe but bold colors can work too that will make more of a statement without making your outfit look too busy.

While it is doable to perhaps combine two large pieces featuring a pattern together, they can be used to much better effect if used more subtly. Such as in the example above, one piece is a larger clothing and one is an accessory. This way, you can still mix and match if the look isn’t working for you and the smaller pieces works more to accent and offset the larger one. Wearing an animal print top with a different patterned shoe or bag is a good example of this use. Also, the pieces are not too close to one another so they do not clash. Adding pieces of clothing and accessories puts distance between them and balances out your entire look.

Styling a Red Prom Dress

Timeless is always in, so red is always a safe bet for any major occasion like prom. Here are some ways to make sure you make the right statement and let the red speak for itself.

Red makes a perfectly bold and timeless statement all on its own. It is no wonder that any prom dress in any shade of the color is bound to be a knockout and turn some heads. Since the color on its own is already eye-catching, it can be difficult deciding how exactly to properly accessorize it. The key to achieving a perfectly balanced look is to choose the right pieces and the right amount of them.

Since this color is already so bold, it would be best to stick with classic metallics such as silver or gold, and other accessories in similar neutral tones like black, cream, white, beige, or even brown or navy blue. A simple silver or gold chain necklace and matching earrings is a timeless look that will go with any dress. If you have a more vintage looking piece or even one that is simple and you want an elegant evening look, then pearls will go wonderfully with any shade of red. They add a touch of class and character without overshadowing the color of your prom dress and add an air of old Hollywood glamour that never goes out of style. When it comes to pearls, it is still important to choose your accessories wisely. If you’re wearing a choker or even a tiered 20’s inspired string of pearls, then studded earrings will work best. If you’re opting to go for a pearl bracelet instead then larger, longer earrings will make up for the lack of necklace and balance out your look. Another option is to choose one solid statement piece. A statement necklace works best with a low-cut or sweetheart neckline, and especially if you are wearing a sleeveless dress. A necklace, especially a choker or one that rests on your collarbone, will highlight your bare neck and shoulders while balancing the neckline of your dress as well.

Additional accessories can be a bit troublesome too, but keeping it simple will work best. If you are going with a pearl theme, then a white satin clutch will match nicely. It will add to the look of the pearls, matching it in color and sheen, but will not detract with added embellishment or look too much. You can also choose to accessorize using items that are the exact color of your dress or are perhaps a shade or two darker. This way, you can add depth and dimension to your prom look with minimal effort. Remember, red is a powerful color and can speak for itself. Adding subtle accessories will truly allow this sort of piece to dazzle on your special day.

Springs Prettiest Polishes and Purses

Embrace the spring with new colored polishes and purses. Add that subtle accent to maximize the season’s fresh new looks.

It’s time to break out of the dreary clutches of winter and walk into spring with open arms- adorned with the appropriate seasonal polishes and purses, of course. Now that your hands are free from the clutches of their gloves and your arms are free of bulky layers to weigh them down, it’s time to show them both off again. While winter is not completely monochrome and it is perfect for shimmery metallics and jewel-tones, spring is about livening things up and adding some fresh new color.

The 2014 pantone color of the year, radiant orchid, is a great place to start. Adding this bright and lively shade to your nails can do wonders to an ensemble. It will instantly brighten up any look and will add a splash of color. It also works wonderfully as a clutch. An accessory like this is subtle but eye catching, and can be manipulated easily. Clutches may be small but they can easily be added in or out of an outfit depending on your mood, but always make for an easy addition. Even colors that are not quite orchid, but are close, such as a traditional rich purple, will work wonderfully. Whether you wear it on your nails, in your hand, or both, this color adds a bit of springtime freshness to any outfit.

Emerald greens are perhaps the most traditional and expected colors to emerge during this season. After all, the snow finally melts to reveal the soon-to-be-green grasses and the trees reclaim their leaves. This color takes center stage and is the focus of rejuvenation come springtime. Whether you go for deeper tones or more pastel ones, green is a safe and appropriate color for the season and goes wonderfully with other neutrals and even other pastels.

But not everything has to be bright and colorful to look fresh. Grey is a fabulous neutral for the season, it isn’t as dark and overwhelming as black and acts as a middle ground between that and brighter whites. Just like any other neutral, wearing grey really provides a great canvas for showcasing other colors. Especially when you plan on mixing and matching nails and a handbag. Grey nails are great because they match any outfit and can accent any handbag, but grey clutches and purses really allow freshly painted nails in reds, greens, purples or pastels to really shine.

Both of these handheld fashion options are great ways to step into spring. They may seem small and subtle but they can go a long way and still make a statement.
