The rest of the world can buzz about Balenciaga’s structured floral dresses and YSL’s masculine blazers, but I have my eyes on entirely different prizes. True, there are lots of great clothes this season, but I’m really excited about spring’s accessories and can’t wait to incorporate them into my wardrobe. Of course, I play with the seasonal themes and color schemes as much as anyone else, but nothing seems to pull an outfit together like an of-the-moment bag or a hot pair of shoes.
While it’s expensive (and not very innovative) to wear runway looks from head to toe, I always invest in at least one or two “seasonal” (read: trendy) accessories to spice up my look and make me feel current. (Not to mention, those splurges may become collectors’ items somewhere down the road.) Read on for a list of what I love for spring…1. Karl Lagerfeld Sunglasses KL603S ($160)
