On Trend: New Accessories for Spring

-Rache’ll Brown

The sun is shining and spring is near, so ditch the gloves and throw on a statement ring instead. Forget the old tribal look, bright shades, and futuristic shapes of the prior vernal equinox: spring 2013 has an array of exciting new styles unparalleled to last year’s coveted pieces. With a new season on the horizon, it’s time to start preparing for the upcoming trends—and I can’t wait.

This spring, expect to see a variety of trends that will be easy to wear and even easier to find. With fringe necklaces, see-through bags, and chunky heels at the forefront of the trends, versatility and simplicity is key. And forget neon hues—it is all about pale pastels for accessories like shoes, bags, and scarves. This season is about simple femininity with a modern edge. To be more daring, throw on some knee-high Grecian inspired sandals or cutout booties, and metallic anything because gold, silver, and bronze are going to be huge. Regardless of personal style, this season holds trends suited for all.

It will be easy to incorporate these trends into everyday life, especially since most are simple and understated. Fringe necklaces make a great statement piece, so use it to dress up a simple dress or top for an effortless vibe. And the chunky heels? On behalf of every girl in the world: thank you fashion gods. Now those who have been afraid to rock a heel before can wear them with ease. Or, grab a bag in a beautiful pastel color (totes are back in!) to complete a look. Remember: an accessory is meant to enhance an outfit, so start with a good base, and whichever accessories that are added on will only make the final outfit look even better.
