Last week, the Accessories Council unveiled top picks for Valentine's Day, hosted by Accessories Council President, Karen Giberson and TV personality and best-selling author, Jene Luciani.
Jewelry is always a popular choice for Valentine's Day, and this season I'm excited about the Boy Meets Girl® x Roman Luxe Jewelry Collection, featuring my favorite, the Triple Spike Pendant Necklace ($150) with pave crystals, black faux-leather and enamel.
The Bling Society Emily Necklace (on sale for $39.95) features a beautiful bow, adding a nice touch to your outfit or that little black dress.
The Caravelle by Bulova Men's Chronograph Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch (on sale for $96 at Macy's) is a handsome choice for the man in your life.
The Judith Leiber Heart Minaudiere ($2,995) is a stunning work of art, detailed with sparkling Austrian crystals. This beautiful, coveted accessory is one that you'll treasure for years and inspire you to attend more cocktail parties!
You can celebrate your Valentine's Day without splurging on accessories, like layering your look with the Icing Silky Gauze Heart Scarf ($22), which has a vintage script pattern for a romantic look, or the Echo Design Pleated Infinity Loop Scarf (on sale for $34.95), which can be worn as a hood to protect your hair/head in cold and windy weather or by single or double looping it around your neck.
Soxxy non-slip ankle, knee and thigh socks are perfect for that new pair of boots! The ankle socks are available in stripes, prints and fun colors like the Lily Socks ($12) in pink. No more worrying about your socks falling down in your boots!
When I think of Dr. Scholl's shoes I always think of their original sandal with the iconic wooden bottom, and loved seeing the new Dr. Scholl's Justify polka dot oxfords. I didn't realize all the shoe options they have, from sneakers and sandals to boots.
I always get excited over a new pair of sunglasses, like the sporty and stylish Under Armour AU Align in shiny crystal tortoise (on sale for $89.99 at zappos.com). These performance sunglasses are comfortable and lightweight and perfect for jogging this spring.
You can never have too many umbrellas, and I notice when I use ones with more fashionable prints, I pay extra attention to make sure I don't lose them or forget them somewhere! Madden Girl umbrellas feature fun aztec, mustache and polka dot prints this season. A favorite for trekking around the city is the Steve Madden Crossbody in black with studded details, adding a little edge to your outfit.
Good luck shopping and Happy Valentine's Day!
