Spring is here! But if you can’t “spring” for a whole-new seasonal wardrobe fear not, a few choice accessories will instantly update your #SpringLook! Here are some ideas inspired by the Spring 2014 runway to help you get started.
The dark, exotic florals seen all over the spring runways from houses like Christian Dior, Balenciaga, Dries Van Noten, Stella McCartney and Marni, add instant chic on purses, hats, tech accessories and scarves. The trick is to look for exotic blooms with monochromatic backgrounds or rich orientals in big, bold groupings.
Or try cotton-candy tinted pastels for shoes, bags, ties, sunglasses. Blush pink was definitely the color of the season at Balmain, Miu Miu, Giorgio Armani, Burberry Prorsum, Isabel Marant, Tory Burch, and Oscar De La Renta. These pair well with crisp spring whites, neutrals like tan or beige, and dramatic contrasting black.
Metallic gold and rose gold were all over the runways at Givenchy, Lanvin and Saint Laurent, but all it takes is a little bit to instantly look chic and on trend. Put a little (or a lot) of sparkle on your wrists to make this look work for work (and play!)
The right shoe, bag, sunglasses, or jewelry in a spring color or print will instantly bring sunlight and freshness to your wardrobe when paired with basics you already own like jeans and trenches.
