Perhaps not THE most important accessory a bride carries or wears on her wedding day, but an important one nonetheless.  Where else to keep your lipstick, some tissues, and your cell phone?  No need for a clutch on your big day?  A pretty clutch would also make a great bridesmaid gift! Currently loving these great super-boxy, angular clutches.  – Tram @ Phi-Style.com

Gingham may not necessarily be synonymous with “modern,” but with a keen styling eye, gingham is a great way to add a twist to a modern palette.  It’s fun and whimsical, and can be easily adapted to a variety of color palettes and stylized details.  Also, have you seen that drapey organza Marc Jacobs dress up there?  LOVE!  – Tram @ Phi-Style.com

Phi-Style: See-Through Shoes

1. Steve Madden Wizarrd, $90 | 2. 3.1 Phillip Lim Cody d’Orsay Heels, $625 | 3. J. Renee Arctic heel, $93 | 4. 3.1 Phillip Lim Cody Metallic d’Orsay pumps, $595 | 5. Prada satin clear heels, $790 | 6. Jeffrey Campbell Jehens sandal, $135 | 7. Donald J. Pliner Pelusp wedge, $202 | 8. Maison Martin Margiela mesh ankle boot, $1095 | 9. Sigerson Morrison Dali wedge, $425

Remember when clear, lucite heels immediately conjured images of, well…exotic dancers?   No more!  The clear heel trend as of late features a refined shape and the smart use of see-through details, from a smidgen of heel, to a seemingly entire bare foot.  I love the use of an unusual material in a shoe, especially using something as clear and beautiful as lucite or acrylic.  – Tram @ Phi-Style.com

Phi-Style: Bronze and Copper

1. Triple Bronze Chain, $150 | 2. Citrine Cushion Studs, $72 | 3. Laurel Bouquet Necklace, $62 | 4. Scale Set Bracelet, $22 | 5. Bronze Pearl Branch Strand, $210 | 6. Frond Cuff, $34 | 7. Stoned Links, $72 | 8. Glam Lozenge Drops, $88 | 9. Champagne Crystal Bib, $36

Can’t decide whether to wear gold or silver for your big day?  Easy solution – wear neither!  Bronze and copper metals look great as statement pieces of jewelry and will give your look at great modern vintage twist. For all you art deco lovers, bronze and copper lends itself beautifully to that romantic era.

As an aside, have you seen all the great jewelry on Bauble Bar?  The prices are super reasonable and the selection is great.  Would make really nice bridesmaid gifts too! – Tram @ Phi-Style.com

Phi-Style: Chambray Details

1. Charlotte Olympia Dolores pumps, $845 | 2. Forever 21 bow pins, $2.50 | 3. Forever 21 surplice chambray dress, $24.80 | 4. Erica Anenberg peace dove bracelet, $100 | 5.

Forever 21 mens chambray shirt, $14.99 | 9. 7 for All Mankind platform pump, $88

I love a good chambray fabric because it reminds me of quintessential sunny spring days.  Lightweight, breezy, and readily available to be dressed up or down.  Imagine a row of groomsmen in crisp chambray shirts for an outdoor wedding.  Your bridesmaids in their fluttering (and comfortable!) chambray sundresses will thank you! – Tram @ Phi-Style.com
