It never really got cold enough to shop for seriously warm wool so we’ve decided to take a leap straight into Spring. After all, it is a leap year. Below are three of the top accessory trends that you need for Spring. There are surely more to come.
Interchangable Handbag Straps:
Disconnect your furry monsters and robot charms. This season we are replacing our shoulder straps with guitar straps or (buying bags that already come with them.) Fendi offers a studded floral strap alone, Valentino has an embroidered animal print and this Rockstud bag comes with a colorful Aztec shoulder strap. It’s just as much fun to add an inexpensive strap to a fancier pocketbook or tote. Here’s an embroidered floral pattern strap or here is a stained glass patterned version on white.
The Victorian ladies, hippies and 90s girls all have something in common with one of spring’s biggest jewelry trends– the choker. The newest wave of jewelry collars come in a variety of options including, velvet, metal, rhinestone or leather. This trend seems to be working it’s way up from street style and we haven’t seen that many designer interpretations of the trend. Many stylish girls are happy with a strand of velvet ribbon or a sting of leather. Keep a look out for Dior’s short scarves that were shown on the runway wrapped around models’ necks and fastened with jewels.
Taste the Rainbow:
We’ve been playing with rainbows for almost two years but designers are still looking for their colorful pot of gold. Multi-colored statement pieces are plentiful. Some of our favorites include the Red Valentino shift dress, Aquazzura suede sandals, a Chloe maxi dress and Saint Laurent flip-flops.
