Accessories & Handbags Report

Spring is the time of year to revive your wardrobe with new accessories. Say goodbye to the drab of the colder months, and reinvent yourself with bold necklaces, jeweled shoes, chunky platforms and layers of bracelets. Statement necklaces worn long, short or layered, with crystals, gems and stones, geometric shapes and ethnic inspiration instantly update an outfit. Stand out by wearing shoes with personality. Embellishments of stones, studs, and spikes become the focal point and will give a sexy, rebellious edge.

Chunky platforms have made a comeback with slingback, lace up, ankle straps and styles to suit almost any occasion. Pile on bracelets and have fun experimenting with bangles and cuffs in all colors, shapes and sizes. When it comes to accessorizing, go bigger and bolder.

Colors, naturals, oversized totes and convertible bags are on the top of the list for spring. Incorporate vibrant pops of color into your wardrobe with a bag, which will contrast the neutral tones of an outfit. Handbags made of natural elements like straw, raffia, wood and bamboo can tone down bright colors and prints. Oversized totes are a great investment for warm weather because they go from work to a weekend at the beach. Enjoy having two style options when carrying a convertible tote, hobo or clutch. If you choose to invest in a new handbag, make sure it is one you will love for years to come.
