Accessories may not be the star of the show, but they do have the power to make or break an outfit. With the ability to dress down an ensemble or elevate it to the next level, the importance of well-chosen accessories should never be underestimated. Here is a look at some of the top accessory trends to help you hone your aesthetic this season
Metallic chain belts are a retro favorite that has been brought back to the forefront for spring. These flashy accessories are quite daring worn over a bare midriff, and yet just as eye-catching and flirty when paired with a floaty dress.
Platform shoes are another vintage style that is making a comeback this season. Chunky stacked heels will be on everyone’s fashion radar, from the runway to the red carpet. Expect to see platforms explode in bright colors and metallics in styles ranging from strappy sandals to boots, to Mary Janes.
Hands-free is the way to go this spring. Practical and trendy crossbody bags are the go-to accessory that is truly functional and very chic. Look for small sleek designs with no outer pockets in neutral tans, taupes, and blacks as well as bold reds.
This next one's a classic that is both comfy and chic. Loafers are the perfect complement to jeans, tailored suits, and dresses alike. This versatile multitasker will be showing up in black, black, and white animal prints.
Choker necklaces are the perfect accessory for any outfit. Sometimes it’s difficult to pair the right necklace with the neckline of your outfit, but a choke length is always just right. This season's chokers will be pearl with accents of gold.
Large Tote Bags
If you’re not a good minimalist when it comes to your handbag, you’ll be happy to learn that large tote bags are a must-have accessory this season. There are so many unique options to choose from such as natural jute and leather bucket tote, nautical stripes, and canvas solids.
Sunglasses have a sporty feel this spring. These standout accessories add a cool element to casual looks. Polarized D-frame visors, steampunk aviator styles, and low-profile motorcycle glasses will all be favorite picks.
