Accessorizing | Sometimes, the wrong accessories—or the lack of!—can make and break your clothes.
Styling does not end at the pieces of fabrics you wear and match; your whole outfit takes into account the wallet you pull out or the arm party you’re showing off on your wrists. Depending on how classy or experimental the accessory you’re wearing is, it can totally maximize your total style. We picked four accessories, like a floral belt and a structured coral tote bag (both from Dolce and Gabbana) for women, and a messenger shoulder bag (GF Ferre) and fun statement keychain for men (Dolce and Gabbana) from Attica Clothing and worked them into clothes to come up with hot-weather friendly looks you can sport this spring and summer, too, which is just around the corner!

The whole idea for this look was sparked by the floral belt from Dolce and Gabbana: resembling the blooms and bounty of the spring season. Because the belt can already make a statement, we kept the look free from any other prints, but not necessarily dull in terms of style. Instead of a typical dress, pair this belt with a jumpsuit like this full-length, white one. It exudes so much more sophistication and, not to mention, makes for a tasteful canvas for the printed floral belt. Pull on some nude strappy sandals to lengthen the legs (black would otherwise clash with the outfit); closed pumps would definitely be more appropriate for business meetings. Some more delicate accessories in yummy, pastel colors and classic metals will keep the sophisticated vibes going.
The structured Dolce and Gabbana tote bag from Attica Clothing is in a lush coral shade that rocks the pastel accessories and printed belt, and splashes more color to the outfit. Let your hair down to add a chic touch and ease the outfit out.

The leather GF Ferre messenger shoulder bag is slouchy and laidback, which called for a very casual outfit to go with. So, guys: why not maximize it with a pair of shorts? It’s definitely apt for the warm weather, too. We put together a dark blue Galliano printed shirt under an Ermanno Scervino white dress shirt with a simple, easy plaid pattern (because who says you can’t rock plaid in spring?)—both items you can get from Attica Clothing, too. Then we paired that with some khaki shorts. Your best pair of black slip-ons or rubber shoes would definitely pull the look together with the bag. For some character, this fun keychain from Dolce and Gabbana (also available at Attica Clothing) will add a statement to the outfit.
