Spring has well and truly sprung and that means it’s time to spruce up your warm-weather wardrobe to suit this year’s hottest global trends. Yay! Here are three inspiring springtime accessory trends to try on for size this year:
Printed scarves in all its guises
A nice printed scarf is a thing of beauty – it’s the ideal way to add a pop of colour or hint of swagger to your look without having to splurge on a whole new ensemble. Animal prints continue on its popularity trajectory, but goes a little more geometric, and almost abstract.
The great thing about this trend is that it’s so easy to wear. Add a dash of flair to your go-to springtime look by tying back your hair with a snake-print scarf, or knotting a multi-coloured cheetah-print scarf around the handle of your Mally bag.
Or go old-school and tie it around your neck for a jaunty, just-off-the-yacht vibe that can take you from posh at the office to relaxed at after-work drinks without missing a beat.
A fun, removeable collar is a great way to elevate even the most basic jeans-and-T-shirt ensemble to something you can wear to an uppity PTA meeting or drinks with the girls in no time flat. Local designers have taken this trend and run with it in a big way – there are gorgeous beaded and fabric options to choose from.
Cool-looking head gear
Don’t you just love a fashion accessory that allows you to be kind of lazy while still making you look super polished? We sure do, and the pre-knotted turban-style headscarf is one of the best tools of the trade when it comes to dressing up a bedhead we’ve ever come across. Simply slip it on with an easy ballerina bun or second-day hair for a fuss-free yet super stylish look.
There you have it – three awesome spring accessory trends you can try on for size as we head into the prettiest season of them all. Remember, the key is to have fun, so if something doesn’t work for you, move right on without batting an eyelid.
