1. Colored gemstones

This spring is all about bold colors and your gemstones are no different. Bright, colorful gemstones will be seen everywhere and they are the perfect way to add fun pops of color to your spring wardrobe.

2. Pearls

Peals are truly a classic but for the past few seasons, they’ve truly been having their moment. They can be seen in everything from your favorite necklace, earrings, hair accessories, and even embellishments on handbags and tops. Pearls are not just reserved for a fancy night out or tea time, but for anytime!

3. Colorful Purse Straps

This is something new we’re seeing this year, colorful handbag straps also called a guitar strap. Alison rocked this trend in the blog, How to Wear Veja Sneakers with Closet Staples showing some of its versatility. This style of strap is found on many different handbag silhouettes so you’re sure to find one you like. Plus, since they are most likely clipped on, you can interchange different straps creating many different looks. Pair this handbag with your favorite jeans or a cute spring dress.

4. Headbands/Head scarves

This is a trend that’s been in and out for the past few seasons. We tend to see it more in the spring and summer months as a cute way to keep our hair up and out of our faces. The headscarves also double as protection from the sun. Whether skinny or thick, you can’t go wrong with a headband this spring.

5. Double Layer Necklaces

Layered necklaces have been on trend but this spring it’s a little more specific. Two-layered necklaces will be seen everywhere and in a multitude of ways, dainty and minimalistic as well as bold and chunky. The best part of this trend is that you probably already have what you need in your jewelry box. Don’t be afraid to mix metals too.

Hoops are a classic but we’re seeing bigger, bolder, and chunkier hoops this spring. Bigger style hoops that almost graze your shoulders are making a comeback.

8. chunky chain links

When we talked about this trend last year we weren’t sure how long it was going to be sticking around, but the chunky chain links and the paperclip links are showing they have some staying power. They will continue to be seen everywhere this spring and heading into summer. If you haven’t tried this trend yet, it’s not too late to add it to your wardrobe arsenal.

8. Cat-eye Sunglasses

The sunglasses trend shape of choice this spring is the cat-eye. They look great on oval face shapes but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give them a try. They come in a variety of styles from a boxier cat-eye as well as something more rounded.
