I always say, accessories really pull an outfit together and give it its finishing touches. I am a huge fan of belts and bracelets because its a very easy way to add some color or pattern to an outfit. For spring and summer, I like to stick to light colors and pastel shades as well as nautical themes- its perfect for vacations by the lake or shore.
One of the best aspects about preppy style is the ability to support smaller, local companies. Below are some accessories perfect for spring and summer from two of my favorite preppy companies: Kiel James Patrick and Southern Tide.
Bracelets by Kiel James Patrick:
These bracelets come in a wide variety of light, pastel colors and make the perfect addition to the wrist with their woven leather and nautical theme. I love the classic navy and white combo with the anchor!
Belts by Southern Tide:
The belts from Southern Tide have a whimsical nautical theme featuring different fish and water activities. The bright colors pair well with white chinos and an oxford for a simple, classy spring or summer ensemble.
