Spring is here and it’s time to freshen up your wardrobe. With maxi skirts, blue and pink hues, denim tops, and all things military being in style, you’re going to need the hottest accessories to pair with them. While some accessories are major staples for all seasons, this spring brings new trends and old favorites into the forefront. I work in the fashion industry and am excited to see runway trends find their way to every woman’s wardrobe. Grab a few fun, trendy pieces to freshen up your style for spring.
Statement necklaces started making their appearance on runways and in store during the holiday season but are really stepping into their own for the spring. Statement necklaces can be worn with simple tops and tanks, or are a fun way to make an outfit look mixed up yet still chic. You want to find necklaces that are short and chunky to stay on trend. One of my favorites is this awesome statement necklace from Maurices. It’s affordable, cute, and will match all of your spring fashions in an adorable pink.
Heels and Socks
I know it may sound crazy to bring this 1980s staple back into your wardrobe, but retro is in this season. A pair of low-heeled pumps paired with a bright and funky sock make a statement that you’re bold, unique, and a whole lot of fun. Be the first of your friends to be brave enough to rock this look. Wear a maxi skirt with colors that match the shoe to let the boldness of your sock really stand out. Try this Kelly & Katie Caris pump with fun geometrical socks from Forever21. Both pieces can be worn together or stand alone as great spring accessories.
Just like statement necklaces, statement nails are bold and fun. Remember when you were little and went to town painting your nails in crazy ways? That’s exactly what statement nails are about. Statement nails can be anything from stripes to gems, studs, and rhinestones. You can choose to jazz up just one or two nails, or go full out and do your whole hand. Try the “What’s Your Design?” kit from OPI. It includes a pink and blue nail color, two hot spring colors, glitter, and a dotting brush so you can create your own funky statement nails.
Clutch-style purses have never really gone away, but they’re on the forefront this spring for style. Two-toned styles, like black and white, are timeless and will carry you through all seasons. A bold, bright clutch in a blue or pink matches spring color trends and can add a pop of color to any outfit, but still has a classic feel. Try finding a clutch with a wrist strap to make it easy to carry while on the go. The Dooney & Bourke nylon wristlet brings the blue hues of the season to your wardrobe without feeling too trendy or over the top.
Everyone needs a good pair of sunglasses in their bag as they start spending more time outside. Picking a pair that are on trend can help you look stylish even when you’re just enjoying the warm weather. Round, cat eye, and oversized aviators are all throwbacks to classic styles. White and bedazzled frames are an especially fun way to get in on this trend. Every face shape can find at least one pair that makes them look fantastic. Don’t be afraid to try a few on or ask for advice. I bring my friends with me when I go sunglasses shopping to find a pair that is flattering and fun. Try the Lauren Conrad Myth Round Framed Sunglasses to give your look a pop of retro glam. The purple shades and white frames remind me of the 1990s and fashion trends signal that the 90s are on their way back in a big way.
Grab one or more pieces from each category to build a great accessory wardrobe that will make you feel fashionable this spring. Whether you’re bold and outgoing or shy and conservative, you can find a way to mold these trends into your own personal style. Think outside of your style box, get creative and try something new this season.
