The easiest way to update your wardrobe – regardless of season – is to revisit your accessory collection. Bill Blass once said that the two most important items in a woman’s wardrobe were the two things he did not sell. Hair cuts and shoes. You can get away with a whole lot in between, but if the hair and shoes are passe it doesn’t much matter what you’re wearing.

Statement Shoes

Shoes rule the summer 2017 accessory trends. Expected to be the shoe of 2017, mules have made a comeback. Mules of all shapes and sizes are hitting the stores. From vintage heels – with a decidedly Barbie feel to the stiletto mule – they can be styled for both casual and dressy moments, worn from brunch to dinner and everything in between. White shoes, which we have shied away from, lend a fresh look to spring pastels. Watch for the bejeweled shoe. Heels, flats, flip flops; none are exempt from the bling that designers have fallen in love with.

Raver Sunglasses

The forthcoming summer 2017 accessory trends have a strong flair toward rave parties, and these sunglasses fit perfectly within the theme. They come in all colors, shapes, forms, and sizes but have one thing in common: the ability to add a fun, over-the-top statement to any ensemble.
