Freshen Up Your Wardrobe with Acccessories

Summer is just around the corner, and, along with the fresh weather, every woman of fashion knows it’s time to freshen up her wardrobe as well. The easiest way to make the transition from Spring to Summer is with your accessories. Leather bracelets offer a modern, sleek, natural, and unique alternative to your usual springtime bangles and beads.

A number of high fashion designers feature leather bracelets for women in a range of fun summer colors. These rainbow collection of bracelets make it easy to accessorize for any occasion, from running to the store to a beach wedding, and in any location, from a city outing to a country picnic. Here are some ideas to help amp up your Summer wardrobe and keep up with the trends while wearing stunning leather bracelets:

Find the Right Balance - Color and Texture

Bright colors are hot Summer trends for 2012. While color can make a big splash, be sure to balance your palette with a touch of neutral. Basic black or earthy brown leather bracelets can help tone down a bright pant, blouse, or dress, and can bring an interesting note of contrast to any look. A knotted leather and sterling silver bracelet, in its elegant complexity, can take your outfit to a new level of demure and relaxed fun.

Leather bracelets make excellent resort wear for warm-weather getaways and cruises in the Summer. Alongside a cotton shirt and seersucker trousers, a leather bracelet will look tropical and stylish as you hold a margarita in one hand, and your camera in the other. For this look, call upon a woven leather bracelet with sterling silver beads, pick a uniquely crafted statement piece with high quality materials to last a lifetime.

Color Blocking and Florals

Some designers are even creating leather and birthstone bracelets with red, orange, turquoise, green, purple, and pink gemstones, which are perfect complements to one of the season’s fashion-forward favorites: color blocking. Color blocking consists of wearing two or three bold shades together—either different gradients of the same color, or even of contrasting colors. Adding a bracelet with red gemstones such as agate or coral to a color-blocked outfit of greens, can make your accessory a focal point.

Florals have been extremely popular on the runways for this Spring and Summer, with designers like Ralph Lauren taking this flirty and feminine print and running wild with it. You should, too! So why not wear a floral summer dress with a stunning sterling silver and leather bracelet? Such a pairing is feminine, with a glamorous and edgy touch.
