blue nails (400x400)Well known fashion icon, Rachel Zoe, aptly stated, “style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.”  Fashion accessories certainly do speak volumes about your style sense.  Thank goodness, the world of fashion accessories continually revamps itself to stay fresh.  Read this post to discover what’s hot for the summer of 2014.

The fashion forward color in nails this summer is blue.  As described in the July 21 issue of People Magazine, “whether you go for aqua, cobalt or deep navy, this season it’s all about dipping your fingers and toes in a cool shade of blue.”  Follow this link to see an example of a pretty shade, Sky Blue, from Charming Charlie.

And remember, you don’t need to paint your fingernails and toenails the same shade; have fun with complementary colors for an even more exciting look.

In addition to impeccable nails, belts continue to be a must-have.  While skinny belts in a variety of colors will serve you well, you should also invest in at least one wide belt in a “kicky” color.  Celebrity interior designer, Kari Whitman, sported a wide gold belt paired with a royal blue dress for a recent magazine photo shoot.  Needless to say, she looked amazing!

Another darling accessory that’s made its way to the top is the backwards headband.  No longer is a bun or other up do complete until the back of the head is decorated.  Imagine a tiara sparkling in the back instead of the front, cute!   (You’ll make quite an impression even as you walk away, that’s for sure).

If you don’t want to put your hair up, just place the headband on the back of your crown.  Confused?  Click here to see images of this trend.

A final accessory to love is the tassel necklace.  Imagine a slinky tassel dangling at the end of a long chain…romance at its best.  Wear a gold or silver tassel necklace with a solid color shell and contrasting skirt for a formal look, or pair it with a breezy t shirt and shorts for a casual appearance.  Either way, you’ll be a style hit.

Check out Charming Charlie’s Clover Tassel Necklace here.  It’s only $10, a definite fashion steal!

Keep your summer night’s hot by trying one or more of these accessory options.  Rachel Zoe knows, and I’m sure you do too, that showing off your personal style has never been easier in 2014!  There’s just so many fun (and reasonably priced) choices.
