While the weather might not say springtime; you can still be in the spirit of spring with a simple change of accessory. Here’s a look at what to expect this spring when it comes to accessories and how to style them.   


This season the fringe earring can be found paired with pearl and color gems for a statement piece.  Fringe earrings are great for dressing up casual looks, while chandelier style fringe earrings are a great accessory for an evening affair making it a point of interest. 


There’s nothing new with extra-long earrings but this season ball drop earrings is the shape that is on trend.  The brighter the better, look for bright colored ball drop earrings to make your entire spring look pop!


A straw bag will instantly add comfort and ease to any spring look.  This season straw bags are the it bag to own. These straw bags are more structured and architectural.  Pair a straw bag with denim, a casual tee and a little white sneaker for a weekend looks.


Pearls never go out of style but how we style them is what makes them fashion-forward this season.  Pearls are also finding form with other accessory trends like ball drop earrings and shoulder sweeping earrings. Pearls are standing out bolder and grander this spring.  Try pairing different pearl necklaces to make a statement. 


Less is more.  Look for gold, silver and rose gold light weight necklaces with gems and stones to coordinate your spring looks this season.  Go for longer pendants in one finish and avoid layering two pendants.  The longer necklace should only have a pendant when layering.
