Ten Easy Spring Accessory Trends to amp up your wardrobe

Spring is the perfect time to go through your closet, dust off your sandals, and await the warmer weather. To say it’s been a crazy and unusual winter in Texas is an understatement. It’s pretty safe to say I’m looking forward to spring more this year than I ever have. While I’m a sucker for a timeless outfit formula, one of the easiest ways to change it up is with accessories.

While digging through what accessory trends we’ll be seeing this spring, I’m seeing some repeats from last spring as well as some old favorites from a few years ago. (This just once again proves that if you really love an article of clothing or accessory don’t get rid of it! It will have its moment again!) You’ll also notice a lot of the trends overlap each other making it really fun to mix and match. Below are some of the fun accessory trends I’m seeing this spring.

1. Long Pendants

The long pendants of fall are coming back around for the summer! They are the perfect light alternative to the scarf. Not to mention, they add a ton of visual interest to any top.

2. Statement Earrings

When you wear a pair of fun statement earrings you really don’t need to wear anything else which makes this a great accessory for the spring and summer. Another example of keeping it simple yet having a big impact!

3. Pearls

Pearls are still going strong whether in earring, necklace, or bracelet form. They even look great as a headband which you’ll see later on. I love seeing all the modern takes on this traditional item. Plus I’m seeing them in so many fantastic mixed mediums. Also, there’s no need to save your pearls for a special occasion, these pearls are ready for your everyday wear.

Not to mention the layering styles which offers a little bit of everything.

8. Textured/Hammered Jewelry

Textured or hammered jewelry can be seen at most retailers and it’s combining a lot of the different accessory trends. For example, the above hammered silver was mixed with pearls and here it’s in the form of a long pendant necklace. It offers a little extra on what could be considered a pretty simple accessory. I especially like the pieces that incorporate the mixed metals.

Wear the headband or scarf alone or pair it up with a top knot or even add the scarf to a pony tail. There are so many color and style combinations you’re sure to find one that you like!
