Let’s face it, when it comes to fashion the goal for spring and summer is to lighten up your style and free yourself up to have as much fun as possible. Part of the lightening up regime includes gravitating towards brighter and richer hues that mimic budding flora and other refreshing treats. The other part of the equation is in the reprise from heavier outerwear that can put a damper on showing off carefully chosen accessories.

Getting Into Shape
Design and function in the handbag world sometimes pass each other like ships in the night. As women we’ve learned to make poor design work as long as it looks good slung over, or dangling from our arm. For spring 2016 architectural, clean and strong shapes give way to a more pulled-together vibe, but these shapes can also usher in unexpected inspiration and creativity.
Fringe detailing is often a staple, particularly in warmer months. We attribute this timing to the fact that summer evokes memories of carefree hippie days; or the fact that spring is the start of festival season for millennials. Playful and whimsical, fringe details add texture and movement which commands attention no matter where you swoosh and swish!
