TREND: Modern-Day Flower Power

Accessories can liven up any ensemble, especially in the fall. While flowers in full bloom are scarce once the colder weather sets in, there’s no reason to neglect our floral accessories. Flowers are ultra feminine and generally seen as delicate. But, what happens when flowers and zippers collide? – an unexpected accessory that is the perfect combination of girly and edgy. Similar to the juxtaposition of other trends this season, such as military-inspired pieces and feminine lace, the metal of the zipper adds a tough aesthetic to an otherwise delicate idea of a flower. This Fashionista wears her floral zipper hair pin beautifully. In the center of the flower is a gold button that has an anchor in the middle, which gives the already gorgeous hair pin a little something extra. The green color of the zipper cloth matches perfectly with her emerald green cocktail ring, while the gold metal of the zipper goes well with her gold, beaded statement necklace. Her lovely draped skirt, lace top and over-the-knee black leather boots make a great outfit, but her accessories really bring the outfit together. Flowers are normally thought of as pretty and fragile, but there’s added beauty in the strength that comes from some edge.

Hint: Zipper flowers are a unique item to add to your collection of accessories. One way to incorporate the piece would be through a pin that you could always add on to a plain black blazer to add a little color. Kate Cusack designs some beautiful floral pins that come in a variety of colors in terms of the zipper fabric, as well as the metal accent.
