When choosing belts, shoes, and bags, pick items with a little edge and a little attitude. Black is back (again, thank God!) and no more "chocolate" brown everything. Grey is HOT. Belt everything - thank you Sex and the City. Anything croco, quilted, or studded will give your look that little something extra it needs.
Booties are everywhere, especially with skirts. The good news is when that trend is over, you can still wear them with pants and they will look great.
My favorite look this season is hard vs. soft. An example would be a cream silk ruffled top worn with a black leather (leatha for you Project Runway fans) studded belt or bag. Perfection.
