Loft Chambray Top c/o Concord Mills

Hey love bugs and happy Friday!
Today, I have partnered with Concord Mills to talk about their spring sale as well as this seasons top accessory trends!

First off, let's talk about the amazing sale Concord Mills is hosting. The accessorize your spring sale is lasting all the month of May (ending May 31st)!

When accessorizing this chambray top from Loft, I wanted to include all of this seasons trending accessories in a subtle yet feminine way. This seasons four trends include: stripes, florals, metallic's and cobalt. 

Stripes: 
Gap Dress (50 % OFF during the CC Mills Sale - not online)

I wanted to step outside the box of your normal accessory and substituted a dress instead when styling this top. The top accents the stripes perfectly and gives you a little perspective on styling a chambray top differently. Stripes are always a huge staple and can go with pretty much everything! I love mixing stripes and florals together; it's a favorite combo of mine! Style tips: Wearing vertical stripes can help elongate the body. Don't forget to mix and match your stripes with other patterns!

Florals:

I have always had a love for floral print. It's so feminine and can make any look chic! This floral accessory I added is from Forever21 and is actually a headband! I didn't like how it looked in my hair but loved the print so much with the outfit, so I tied it around my neck and voila! Style tips: When wearing florals always be mindful of the size of the print. The size of the pattern should match the person. Don't forget you can mix florals with florals! Pair a floral dress with some contrasting floral heels! (I need to try this)

Metallic's:
J.Crew Bangle (on sale at CC Mills- not online) || Forever21 Floral Bracelet (not online)

Metallic's have always been a huge part of my style. I am all about adding a little shimmer to my look whether it's gold, silver, gunmetal or all of them together! There are ways to incorporate more than one trend in a piece. For example, the floral bracelet. It's a metallic gold base and a floral print; two trends right there in a stylish yet subtle way! Style tip: Try adding a metallic shoe to your look in gold or silver to make the most out of a casual look. It's okay to mix your metals and treat them like neutrals; nothing will clash with them!

Cobalt: 
Francesca's Cobalt Puff (on sale at CC Mills)

Cobalt has always been a favorite color of mine! The vibrant color can really put a POP into your look. Take this little puff for example. It's a very small accessory but makes all the difference in the outfit! Not to mention, it ties in perfectly with the neck tie creating a balance within the outfit so it's not too overwhelming. And, it's adorable haha! Style tip: Try adding a cobalt bag into your wardrobe and modernize your everyday looks with a pop of color! Cobalt pairs very nicely with gold and silver accessories; trying adding a cobalt bangle in your everyday arm candy for some va-va-voom!

Accessories really do transform any look from weak to chic! I really hope you enjoyed today's post and gained some inspiration on adding trending accessories to your look!
