When spring finally arrives, it is time to shed the heavy coats and bulky boots.
Ditch the frumpy sweaters and formless sweats. Banish the bland, dark colors of the winter months. It is time for fresh colors, natural neutrals, and a little drama and bling to brighten up your wardrobe. So grab a glass of iced tea and take a look at these must-have spring accessories.
10. Super-Hot Hats
Justin Timberlake may have brought sexy back, but Kate Middleton brought back hats. Since Kate has been sporting them, hats are hotter than ever. Make no mistake, we aren’t talking baseball cap paired with jeans hats. No. Big, formal, elegant hats are the go to fashion accessory for spring!
9. Geek Glasses
Geek chic is all the rage. Suddenly, glasses, and the smart souls who sport them, are sexy! Think of the tortured poet, the reserved librarian, or that cute professor that you had a crush on in college. Yes, you definitely need a pair of smarty glasses this spring!
8. Hobo Bag
A hobo bag, in a soft neutral color, sets off the simple shades of spring. The bag is roomy enough to tuck away everything you need for a day trip on a romantic afternoon, yet refined enough for dinner at the nicest restaurant. Grab a bag in a variety of colors to pair with the lighter and brighter colors of spring.
7. Sexy Shoes
Sexy shoes don’t need to have stiletto heels or super strappy clasps. In spring, sexy is more understated, more refined, more…innocent. And a pair of simple ballet flats, in a neutral color, is infinitely more practical for romantic picnics or sunset strolls.
6. Big Belts
Belts are big this spring. Not just any belt, but lush embroidered belts that call to mind images of gypsies, and fortune tellers, Renaissance Fairs, and elaborate costume balls. Paired with a simple peasant skirt, this belt is perfect to show off an hourglass figure.
5. Sassy Scarves
The scarves this spring are not your grandmother’s scarf. These scarves are sassy and showy. They steal the show, and are not too modest to show off their flair. Paired with a monotone outfit, perhaps something in all white or a dove gray, these scarves are sure to garner some stares.
4. Silk Wrap Bracelet
A simple silk, beaded or leather wrap bracelet, set off with dainty silver charms, makes a quiet statement while allowing your showier accessories to shine. For a more dramatic look, stack several silk wrap bracelets in contrasting colors to create the look of a stunning silk cuff bracelet.
3. Hoop Earrings
Hoop earrings are timeless and elegant, but this spring they are freshened up with a sweet silver filigree design. The understated simplicity of the hoop is emboldened by the rich design texture. It perfectly complements the more intricate accessories of spring.
2. Vintage Rings
Vintage rings are very vogue this spring, especially when silver pairs with smoky gemstones to create an ethereal addition to your ensemble. Smoky quartz and London blue topaz add drama and elegance to springs cool neutral colors.
1. Rosy Lips
Rose is the newest color of spring—for your face as well as your clothing. Add a hint of rose to your lips with a new lipstick for spring, and freshen up your face. Invest in several shades, from a light pearl pink to a crimson rose for evening.
So while you weather the last storms of winter, shake off those winter blues and add some drama to your closet with some of these spring accessories.
