For the shopper looking to save some cash between seasons as trends swiftly change, there’s no better buy than a few statement accessories. Popping on a few pieces with wardrobe basics can give new life to winter, fall and even last year’s basics. And since spring 2017 was all about the mix and match, the motto for 2017 spring accessories is: the quirkier the better.
This spring, you can load up the patterns and top them all off with equally vibrant eyewear, wearables or jewelry. The sun’s about to be shining and fashion is all about having fun again! These are the add-ons you must have — and how to find them for less.
Runway-Inspired Spring Accessories
1. Colored Lens Sunnies
Scooped from Celine, Balenciaga and countless others, colored lenses are turning everything rosy…and orange…and even blue. The spring runways had a pair for every aesthetic: slim shapes for the sporty gals, wire-rimmed aviators for the classics, and plenty of oversized options for the true glam squad. Shade enthusiasts know these elite brands don’t come cheap, but Le Specs makes the trend attainable with a more affordable price point.
2. Wide Belts
Wide has arrived once again, and it’s time to bring back everyone’s favorite ’80s belts. Cinch in your waist and give shape to boxier silhouettes a la Victoria Beckham, Monse and Altuzarra. Snag a leather style in a neutral for the office and chic nights out, then pick up a bright and cheery floral print that really welcomes in the season for playful, pattern mixing off-days.
