Summer Accessories Forecast from Oh, Suzanne!

Oversized Sunglasses from Oh Suzanne

Is it summer yet?

I caught up with Suzanne Monsebroten, the owner of Oh, Suzanne! — a jewelry and accessories shop tucked away in the Pioneer Center in West Fargo — to get her take on what accessories we’ll be wearing as the weather heats up.

Neon Infinity Scarves from Oh Suzanne

“Neon is still a big seller,” said Suzanne as she showed me around her little shop.

I can see why. The graphic brights look great against neutrals and really pop when worn together. And the infinity scarf is so easy to wear.

Oh Suzanne Cross Necklaces
Side Cross Bracelets
I love this twist on a classic motif — and side crosses like these have been popping up everywhere.

Bracelets are a great way to experiment with color and texture because they look great layered and the cross element ties everything together.

Rings from Oh Suzanne
70’s Style Cocktail Rings
“We’re seeing more color and less metal this season,” said Suzanne. “And turquoise always sells well in the summer.”

Chunky statement rings like these look great when worn with something simple like jeans and a T-shirt or a breezy summer dress.

Neon Varsity Scarves from Oh Suzanne
Varsity Style Stripes
I’d never heard these preppy stripes referred to as varsity style, but I think it’s a perfect description.

Add a little zing to your look with a scarf in this summer’s color palette – try coral, teal or citron.

Pins from Oh Suzanne
Vintage Brooches
Suzanne stocks a variety of beautiful vintage brooches, which — thanks to Etsy and Pinterest — are extremely popular with brides who are looking to add a little sparkle to their bouquets or headpieces.

The look doesn’t have to read bridal, though. Use a brooch to pin a scarf, re-purpose it as a hair accessory for evening or cluster a few special pieces on a hat, bag or collar.

Pendants from Oh Suzanne
Handmade Pendants
“People really like anything that’s handmade looking,” said Suzanne.

These pendants come from a vendor in Minnesota and they’re both personalized and very affordable — Oh, Suzanne! offers two pendants for $20, plus a free necklace, so you can customize your favorite combinations.

You’ll find the West Fargo store hours and location listed below, but Oh, Suzanne! will also be at the Shady Hollow Flea Market in Detroit Lakes this summer, starting Memorial Day Weekend.

Her boutique is located in the white buildings at the south end of the market, closest to Highway 59.
