‘Proper’ Summer Trends (Pt. 5): It’s About The Details

Now that you have an idea of the colors, shapes, styles, and patterns to wear this spring, let’s focus on the final touch: accessories. I like to think that accessories—from jewelry to purses to shoes—pull an entire outfit together. Think about it: How would that black tie affair gown look with flip flops? #NotTheSame

Take a mental image of these accessory trends when you are pulling together outfits. Or, refer to my Pinterest board while you are out and about.

Here’s how to class up your outfit:

Do It Dainty

Statement necklaces stole the show last spring. This spring, its time to simplify. Less is more. Pair dainty necklaces, rings, and earrings with those wild prints to create balance. #DoItDainty

Wear Many Hats

Whether it’s a modern fedora, western style, or an oversized sun hat, you will be on par (derby style) if you rock this look. And the extra UV protection never hurt anyone!

Practical Purses

In 2015, we are always on the run. I, for one, don’t have time to be switching out purses (I just have too much shit). So, I’m all about a clutch turned cross body. Proper & Prim has the bag that saved my life. You can never have enough pockets, zippers, and color.


Sporty Spice

Just like joggers and tees are in for clothing, sporty sandals and tennies are being paired with dresses. If you can’t quite get the nerve to wear your running shoes with your floral dress, try sporty sandals instead for a more subtle look.
