Every season there’s a new batch of silhouettes, patterns, and “It” pieces plucked right from the runway that define the major trends of the moment.
But the truth is, it’s really not possible (or financially responsible) to COMPLETELY overhaul the contents of your closet every season to keep up with the latest trends.
My secret for staying in the fashion-forward game is to update my look seasonally with accessories. Use key closet staples as your foundation and build on them with accessories.
Accessories can make a look cutting-edge, without undergoing a multi-garment, head-to-toe revamp.
Many times people write off accessories as after-thoughts that don’t really matter but remember although they are tiny they are mighty! Their transformative powers are HUGE, while their level of commitment is rather low. A $5 belt can totally change the silhouette of a dress or jacket into something so much more chic. A quick accessory update can help a piece transcend seasons and give it new life.
Spring 2019 serves up three sporty accessory trends that will work magic on updating your wardrobe and give it a totally fresh on trend feel.
The Three Must Have S’s of Spring: Shields, Sneakers and Spray Jackets.
From futuristic to sporty to feminine, shields are becoming designers’ new blank canvas…and an accessory to watch, own and experiment with. From uber sporty biker-esc shades to futuristic mirrored goggles, super-oversized to sleek and aerodynamic, colorful mirrored lenses and only a top frame Spring 2019 is the time to keep your sunnies game in the athleisure realm. Bonus: They actually provide MORE sun protection than regular sunnies because they cover more if your face!
Chunky multi-colored dad sneakers have evolved from a fashion forward choice to the wardrobe must-have for everyone. The main feature of dad sneakers is the chunky soles, which add just the right amount of height and still look sporty chic. I love to make the unexpected pairing of chunky sneakers with a dress or skirt to keep them visually interesting and refreshingly new.
Three: Spray Jackets
The GORP-core trend has been a heavy fashion influence over the past few seasons and Spring 2019 is no different. Utility and practicality continue to lead the way. Spring = rain showers so why not opt for a lightweight waterproof jacket which comes equipped with a hood! Spray Jackets are the perfect airy layering piece that combines fashion and function in a flattering silhouette plus it will totally keep you dry!
