Spring is finally here, and in celebration of the warmer weather, we are bringing you the pieces you need to have in your wardrobe this season. While I am definitely not a proponent of replacing your entire wardrobe each season with the latest and greatest items, there is no harm in investing in accessories that will uplift your look—and these will certainly do the trick.
While color returns in full force to our spring wardrobe, it always comes packaged just a little bit differently. This year, it’s all about the bag. In addition to bold colors, this season’s bags will feature some interesting shapes. From slouchy shapes to more structured aesthetics, nothing is off limits this season. Runway shows like Fendi, Marni, Proenza Schouler, Prada, and Dior, just to name a few, are good references as we curate our wish lists.
For those who aren’t quite ready to show off their toes that have been hiding all winter long, it’s time to invest in a seriously stylish pair of flats. While the flat is the usual go-to shoe for spring, every season we search for deviations of the classic cut. The ease of beauty and comfort is sometimes hard to master, but these Free People loafers are the perfect combination. Pair these with jeans or work slacks for a casual or more professional interpretation.
Baseball caps emerged in full force this past winter with funny catch phrases on the front, but they are not just meant as comedic items. They have transitioned into a spring fashion staple. You can find solid polyester ones like this one from ASOS, or you can wear one that’s more colorful. When the sun comes out to play, we need to have some protection, and these hats are the answer. The best thing about this emerging trend is you can always play the retro or vintage card and pull out your parents’ old sports caps, thus recycling fashions, making an old a new.
While statement jewelry has been a term in fashion for years, most often what we turn to is a collar necklace or a piece with a larger plate. Another way we would rock some statement jewelry is bangles or stackable bracelets. But this spring, it is all about the earring. Light and large, they are artistic pieces reminding us of sculptures and statues. With minimal makeup and a bare chest, these items make the look come alive. While still gaudy in nature, they are almost minimalist, not calling for any other pieces around it to distract from its presence.
