Flower accessories transition from day to night

One of the biggest trends right now is flower-adorned accessories — shoes, handbags, shirts, belts, headbands, etc. We’re always looking for new and upcoming companies featuring this trend because it helps transition any work outfit to a date-night outfit in a snap!

Recently, we came across IslandBelle, a shop onEtsy that features handmade hair accessories, brooches and more, featuring adorable rosettes in a bunch of different great colors for fall.

We received the Laura Headband (pictured, $10), which is probably one of my favorites in the shop because it features a muted light pink organza rosette on a plum-y linen fabric — both of these colors are on-trend this season. It’s soft and feminine, with slightly frayed edges. I’d probably hit it with fray-stopping adhesive, like Fray Block™, to preserve the gentle fray while preventing it from fraying further. Headbands are an easy way to instantly dress up any outfit, whether you’re wearing a cute sheath dress or a plain dress shirt and dress pants. And they’re so chic!

IslandBelle brooches are even more adorable (and affordable at just $8 each!), and would look great pinned on your work blazer or a denim jacket for after work. We received the Aqua and Brown Fabric Rosette Brooch, which one of our coworkers immediately fell in love with, since she wears something very similar on her dress shirts.

My favorite piece from IslandBelle is the Fabric Rosette Necklace because it’s big, bold and makes a statement over a neutral colored top! It’s a little pricier at $25, but that’s a total steal for something so beautifully handmade. Plus, it beats your typical costume jewelry because it’s so unique!

In fact, all of IslandBelle’s pieces are made with care and give that “little-something-extra” to your favorite fall ensemble.
