What do we want? Hot summer accessories! When do we want them? Now!

Summer is here and there’s no time like the present to nab yourself a must-have item. Accessories can make all the difference to an outfit, especially when the heat forces you to wear as little as possible. A chic clutch and bold jewellery can make a bigger impact than a dress! Good things come in small packages, they say.

Or how about statement earrings to complement an up-do? Whatever your style, be sure to accessorize it!

A Flash of Dolce & Gabbana News

Things aren’t going very well for Domenico Dolce or Stefano Gabbana. Last week the Italian courts found the pair guilty of tax evasion (read the details here) and sentenced them to jail time – one year and eight months to be exact. The lawyer for the design duo is confident that his appeals will prevent them from serving any time. Let’s hope so, because the clothes won’t make themselves.

But that’s not all. Dolce and Gabbana were showing their Fall 2013 menswear collection in Italy this week when a streaker crashed the show. Yes, a streaker and it’s not even a baseball game. Luckily the show had concluded and the designers had taken their final bow. That didn’t stop the audience from getting an extra eye-full. Wearing only a pair of red sneakers, the streaker ran around the runway before he was caught.

So far there isn’t an explanation behind the nudity attack. Likely, it’s a just a goofball who wants a little attention. Who knows maybe, Dolce and Gabbana will share a cell with the streaker and recently convicted ex-prime minister Silvio Berlusconi. Mamma mia!

Floral-printed pants are so hot right now, they’re basically on fire. Check out these blue-hued ones from Style Stalker.

In my last post, I highlighted the power of black and white. Opt for Vivienne Tam’s contrast knit t-shirt.

This stunning necklace from Adia Kibur is so on trend, it’s ready for fall. Tassel-style jewelery is making a huge splash next season.

The more the merrier. This season is all about prints and this A&R scarf gives you two prints in one.

Red is as much of a staple colour as black. This ABS dress is cocktail-ready.
