With the snow a distant memory and colorful blossoms finally peeking out, that can only mean one thing: It’s time to ditch those heavy winter clothing in favor of cute spring dresses. As with any other outfit, you can give year’s spring gear a fresh look is with the latest jewelry and accessories. The following items are especially hot this spring:
Give others the impression that you’ve just returned from an African safari by adding a touch of tribal to your style. The tribal look is a hot one for spring, with every designer from Michael Kors to Donna Karan jumping on board. You can easily incorporate tribal into your style by getting a pair of shoes made with natural materials and enhanced with prints. To complete the look, opt for big and bold pieces. The right statement piece can turn a dull outfit into a spectacular display.
Typically associate with the summer months, white has arrived a bit early this year. Ladylike white clutches are especially popular among fashionistas, who love the way this look can be used both in the office and out on the town. White shoes with a demure touch also look great when paired with a classy outfit.
This one is a no brainer. When the flowers bloom in spring, they also make an appearance on both clothing and accessories. Floral diamonds are especially big this year, with rings being the top item. These dainty rings typically feature a thin white gold band with a diamond centerpiece that takes the shape of a small flower. Flowers have also made their way onto costume jewelry and the season’s latest footwear, with several designers using them to adorn high heel shoes.
Take a break from those chunky necklaces and hit up one of the more recent trends in jewelry —
long earrings. This style looks best when the hair is pulled back, making it a great one to pull out on a bad hair day. The great thing about the recently popular dangly earring trend is that the earrings don’t necessarily have to be super expensive. Many of this season’s earrings are made of inexpensive materials, such as plastic, cubic zirconia and rhinestones. For a more regal look, opt for dangly earrings made from sterling silver or 14 karat gold. These earrings look great when enhanced with colorful jewels such as rubies or sapphires.
Following these trends will have you in loop this spring but do you have any styles of your own to share?
