Accessories are the finishing touches that add oomph to any outfit or room. Learn what's in style right now and pick up tips on buying them, wearing them and decorating with them in our new "Accessory of the Week" feature.
It's a big season for floral accents, and the flower clip or pin is one that can go just about anywhere. Clip one in your hair or on your handbag. Attach one to your lapel or onto a long necklace.
Or use them to accent baskets, drapery tie-backs, pillows, you name it. We especially like a flower clipped onto the ribbon of a wrapped gift, in lieu of a bow. It's a small gift in itself.
Sizes, fabrics, fastener types vary, as do prices. We found this flower clip for 99 cents at Michaels. Really.
