Studio 5 Trend Tracker Mindy Dunyon shows off this year’s trends in spring accessories.
Wedges have officially made a comeback this spring. Many women find wedge heels easier to wear than high heels. Plus, they will add definition and shape to heavy ankles, making them appear thinner. A wedge looks great with flowing skirts and dresses, or wide and flared pants. Try to avoid wearing a wedge with pencil skirts and pants with narrow or straight legs.
This spring we’re seeing belts in all widths and textures. A belt is the perfect way to update an out-of-date silhouette instantly. Plus, cinching your waist is a great way to show off your shape.
Jewelry this year is all about the bold and edgy. Try wearing statement jewelry with more conservative looks so that it’s not competing with other elements of your outfit.
If cutesy is your thing, bow headbands and clips are the perfect trend. A fun way to pull off a bow is by pairing it with a color palette of neutral, pink and black. Try wearing bows with a sweet dress and feminine shoes.
This season you can give your shoulder a break from big, heavy purses and instead try the soft simplified look of a small bag. It’s high on style and it won’t weigh you down while shopping.
A boyfriend blazer should be slightly roomy but you shouldn’t look like you are swimming in it. Make sure to keep it feminine by pairing it with a fitted top and heels. Another thing that makes this look work is rolling up of the sleeves of the blazer. Look for linings that when rolled up, add interest to your outfit!
Denim is everywhere this spring, from denim bags and shoes to blouses and vests. Denim works as a neutral and can be paired with almost anything. My favorite combination is a denim vest paired with great black and white pieces.
