Trendy Accessories Spring/Summer 2010

What are some of the leading trends in accessories for Spring/Summer 2010?

Big necklaces, bracelets, bangles, colorful handbags and clutch bags, belts, hats, brooches, ruffles, flowers, embroidery and lace.

If you're one of those gals who love to accessorize, you'll be happy to hear that this is the season when fashion gurus say: Go for it! Accessorize all you want, ladies, as it has never been more fashionable to do so. No color is a taboo, and bold color and pattern combinations are encouraged. Ruffles are to be found everywhere; on dresses, jackets, belts, handbags, shoes and even gloves. Flowers are also dominating the fashion runways, as jewelry, prints in fabrics, embroideries and, of course, in shoes. Hats are a trendy accessory, prescribed by many leading designers. Belt are a must have accessory for virtually any outfit.

See for yourself ...


Many designers had hats to complete their ladylike look, but we saw a variety of styles, textures and colors.


Bright and ornate clutches were not an isolated event of the fashion runways. Many of the handbags and clutches had a metallic element, chains, buckles and/or cuffs. In some cases, the clutch was also a beautiful piece of jewelry.

We also saw that ruffles, bows, embroidery and intricate embellishments look gorgeous on bags.


This season belts come in all shapes, colors and sizes. And who said you shouldn't wear a bright blue belt on top of a green-and-purple dress? It's the perfect time to be color-creative!

Bracelets and Bangles

Bracelets and bangles are a very trendy accessory this season. Oversized ones are especially in style. Floral elements were preferred by many designers, while others went for a more abstract designs. In my opinion, they are are all gorgeous.

Super bold and artsy necklaces are all the buzz.
