We can finally say goodbye to those stuffy winter outfits that offered little to no freedom when it comes to creative expression with fashionable accessories, and we can now slowly start envisioning our spring and summer combos that will daze and confuse!
However, this time we would like to focus on making the most of the details you can use to embellish and elevate your look, while we go over some of the trendiest combinations spring will surely inspire.
1. Out-of-this-world eyewear
Whether you prefer retro aviators or you’d like to test-drive those sleek, futuristic eyeglasses, no sunny outfit will be complete without a matching (or mismatched!) pair of shades. With the rise of rebelliousness in fashion, the emphasis will be on statement pieces that do not necessarily have to match your outfit as much as they can match your persona.
Try out a pair of edgy rave sunglasses with your fresh street look of ripped jeans and a clean white t-shirt, or you can always style up with a pair of aviators with a modern twist.
2. Bring out the chokers
Baubles will just flourish this year, but make no mistake – the timeless choker is back, and it is more versatile than ever! With a wide selection of raw and rugged examples of leather and chain, to delicate satin and colourful gems, chokers will rule the streets of spring. Oversized, sparkly, understated or glam, you name it, it’s perfect.
A simple, yet fierce Infinity Choker by Rag & Bone is an ideal example of what the upcoming season is all about. You can wear it with your most elegant evening gown, a pair of denim shorts and a lumberjack plaid shirt, or you can even use it as a classy accessory for your afternoon coffee with friends.
3. Asymmetrical Earrings
Although patterns like stripes and flowers always seem to find their place in every stage of fashion evolution, boldly stepping out of the matching craze will be one of the best ways to decorate yourself this spring.
Wear a single, oversized earring with gems, tassels or Rodarte nature-inspired shapes and curves, or a mismatched pair such as Marni’s crystal-embellished horn earrings perfect for a sophisticated evening gown.
4. Chameleon belts
Think of them as waist chokers or even an integral part of your outfit, because you can wear them with high-waisted jeans, skirts, or spice up your floral dress, but there are few outfits that can go wrong with a cleverly styled belt.
Tie the knot with a Maison Margiela electric blue belt, and you can mix it with your boho Desigual skirt, or a pair of your most daring leather pants. Look for prominent buckles, vibrant colours or multipurpose materials that will let you play with your look and change you style with a different buckle position or a different knot.
5. Urban bags
Another indicator of this spring’s selection of diverse choices is the tendency towards practical, comfortable and timeless items. That is why almost every fashionista will complete their collection with the help of a classic over-shoulder bag that doesn’t only fit your essentials, but also gives you a classy, smooth look.
If you’re heading to a business meeting or just an afternoon window-shopping session, the Urban Stroll designer shoulder bags will style up your professional outfit, as well as your comfortable linen flowy pants and a floral tunic. You can even give your bag a personal touch by embellishing it with a stylish Chanel brooch for a splash of colour.
All in all, the upcoming season will be perfect for you to bauble up your look with effective details, while some of the most innovative designs both in accessories and wardrobe will certainly take centre stage for the months to come. Make the most of the warm season by stepping out of your fashion comfort zone and experimenting with a plethora of new outfits!
