Spring 2012 Trends

Light Bright Accessories

Colour is one of the biggest trends seen on the runway this season and a great way to start incorporating it without it being too scary is with some great accessories. I also recommend starting to incorporate them now to help get into the fresh spring feeling during the winter blahs that everyone is feeling. Here are a few great pieces to get some inspiration.

1. Dannijo Capucine Necklace. $445 USD. This is such an amazing piece, I instantly fell in love and snatched it up when I saw it in one of my favourite stores, The Narwhal, here in Toronto. I have already started wearing it with sweaters and it is a great piece to just add with a basic white tee or tank in the spring or summer.

2. Forever 21 Lacquered Heart Earring Set. $3.80 Cdn. These are so cute and a super affordable way to incorporate the Neon and bright colour trend into your wardrobe and also one of the most subtle and least costly commitments to the trend.

3. Christopher Kate Printed Modal and Cashmere Scarf. $530 USD. I am in love with any cashmere modal blend scarves, they feel like heaven when you wear them. This scarf buy Christopher Kane scarf would brighten up a winter coat now and then look great with a navy blazer in the spring.

4. Proenza Schouler Ps1 Medium Suede Satchel. $1975 Cdn. The Ps1 is such a classic and timeless bag and definitely on my wishlist. The tropical green is a a great way to brighten up the bag and helps distinguish it from all the boring black handbags out there.

5. CC Skye Neon Riviera Cuff. $375 USD. This cuff is such a great mix with the neon yellow and gold and is such a great statement. I could see it with one of the amazing printed maxi dresses that came down so many runways or with a military styled look for a fun pop of colour.

6. Aldo Fravel Suede Shoe. $90 USD. These suede shoes from Aldo are right on trend with the return to the pointed ladylike toe and the bright neon peach colour. I would love to see this with a great pair of skinny denim and a silk shirt.

7. Brian Atwood Claudia Embroidered Suede Pumps. $2115 USD. These shoes are a work of art, from the stunning electric aqua suede to the embroidered backs, they are a true statement. Your best bet, pair them with simple separates and let the shoes be the statement and show them off!
