Summer 2012 Retro Accessories Guide Part 1

The great thing about summer style is the fact that you can keep your outfits simple and style them up with bold accessories. With just a light breezy dress on, there’s nothing holding you back from dressing your wrists, adding inches to your height, and playing with different colored shades. This summer, two trends have reemerged from the past… We’ve put together some of our favorites and hope to inspire some love for these fun quirky accessories!

Almost-Flatform Wedge Sandals

Although the lack of a slant may look awkward at first, once you get a feel for them, you’ll wonder where they’ve been your whole life. These flatform wedges give you height without messing with your comfort and sacrificing your toes.

Lookbook Lust: Mother of Pearl FW12

After visiting the Schiaparelli and Prada : Impossible Conversations exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum, I found myself contemplating whether art and fashion are one and the same. While Miuccia Prada admits she doesn’t believe fashion is art nor does she view herself as an artist, Elsa Schiaparelli brought art and fashion together, working with artists like Salvador Dali to create unforgettable pieces like the Shoe Hat.

Boardwalk Empire reminisces the boisterous rebellion of Prohibition; Woody Allen resurrects cultural icons in Midnight in Paris and to top it all off, Leonardo DiCaprio is sure to break our hearts this winter as Jay Gatsby.

RALPH LAUREN

Ralph Lauren S/S’12 collection illustrates the elegance, femininity and luxuriousness of the Twenties. The ethereal collection is rich in silk and sheer, lustrous beading, and pastel-colored feathers. If Daisy looked this angelic, Gatsby’s heart never stood a chance!
