Call them the 'icing on the cake' or the 'cherry on top' or the 'Justin Bieber to your Selena' but you have to admit, no outfit is ever as good without amazing accessories. Take your typical jeans and a tee: on their own - total Dullsville. But add a great pair of wedges, some aviator shades and a beautiful bag and you're suddenly Jennifer Aniston (without the private cars and Hollywood mansions, mind you).
Every season, designers send certain extras down the runway that resonate with the fashionable set, making lobes, wrists and necks feel suddenly empty without them. This spring, the new It zone is the ear. Yes, that's right, the oversized earring is back, bringing to mind ancient Egyptian goddesses with their lobe-defying danglers. The new earrings highlight the face and are a huge departure from the minimalist earrings we've seen for so many seasons. If you're not the big earring type, go for statement necklaces and stacked bangles to colour your world. Speaking of colour, accessories followed clothing trends with pretty pastel pumps and sweet minaudieres looking positively ladylike. For the more daring among you, go for bold, bright neons to add a little party rock to your look. For metallics, both silver and gold are totally on-trend. Keep your silver accents sleek with clean lines and simple silhouettes, or go for the gold with 1920's-inspired deco gold and black extras. As for print, earthy tribal extras, kitschy Hawaiian prints and fun florals will be your new spring go-to's.
I love the power of killer accessories but want to know the part I like best of all? They always fit. Yay!
