Accessory tips for the spring 2011

1. A chunky bracelet on each wrist lends stylish symmetry to a pretty work dress. (Etro mastered the look, far left.) A resin design from BCBG or a pair of weighty metal cuffs will deliver maximum impact.


2. Silk Scarf- Easiest styling trick ever: tie a silk scarf around your neck bandana-like for an instant print pick-me-up. Echo DKNY (far left) with matching shoes for a bright finish.



3.  Layered Chains- Cascading strands are an unabashedly feminine complement to a dress or suit (note Oscar de la Renta's take on the look, far left). A Forever 21 necklace mixes ropes of faux pearls with metal chains for an eclectic romantic effect.


4. Another fav. of mine Flower Pins- A silk corsage adds a welcome dose of femininity to menswear-inspired separates at Jason Wu, far left. Get plucky and cluster a trio together, using rosettes like this one.
