My favorite trends for Spring/Summer 2013 are Monochrome and Statement prints so I thought I would write a post looking at some accessories that would help bring the looks together.
I know technically that monochrome can be any combination of black and white, but in my mind I always think of clean cut, tailored and professional. The trend reminds me of a classic Chanel suit, or the iconic Breakfast At Tiffany’s outfit worn by Audrey Hepburn.
It makes me think of driving an old convertible wearing white leather driving gloves, as such I couldn’t help but put a black and white scarf and some black statement sunglasses on my monochrome board! The bag I chose is both suitable for work, but also practical and big enough for day to day use. I also have a fedora fetish at the moment, so whats better than a white straw fedora with a chunky black stripe?
As for the print accessories, we all know I am a sucker for leopard print, so the shoes and the hat are a go to for me. The shoes are perfect to add some print to any outfit. The snapback hat, I’d wear it when I go out skateboarding with the guys! It would look amazing with a 90’s inspired bomber jacket.
I’m a big fan of Ted Baker phone cases, and this floral print is so lovely and feminine, making it perfect for summer. I also liked the floral print on the sunglasses. As for the bag, I love the dog print and the contrast of the orange details with the black and white print really make it interesting. I chose the scarf, just because scarves are a day to day must have for me to liven up any outfit.
What are your key summer trends?
