Top 25 Must-Have Spring Accessories for the Ladies

Coco Chanel had a famous line about looking in the mirror before you leave the house and removing one thing. We interpret these words of wisdom to remind us that every accessory is important, and should mean something to our outfit. They also have a lot of power in making or breaking our look. In this week’s Clothes & Conversation “ Top Accessory Trends for Spring: Ladies, We’re Breaking Them Down” , we’ve broken down the top trends in each of the 5 key accessory categories – handbags, shoes, jewelry, belts, and sunglasses.
Here, we’ve picked the top 25 pieces of the season that speak to these trends in a modern and appropriate way that will make you feel updated, without being too over-the-top trendy. No one wants to look like they’re trying too hard (just as Coco said) but everyone wants to look and feel good. And don’t we all just love shopping for accessories? No judging ourselves, just happiness.
Let us know what you think in the comments below or on social media. Remember, whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

Handbags. 1. Thank you, Theory, for launching a handbag line and getting it so right, straight out of the gate. This bag is pure luxury at an accessible price. The design is everything we love about Theory – modern, timeless, and high quality. The soft suede is gorgeous in this tan shade that is perfect for spring, summer, and into fall. (It comes in a rich navy, too.) This bag subtly picks up the ‘70’s trend, but is also so functional in its versatility. Not only does it have a flap closure that has a useful pocket, it comes with 2 removable straps so you can wear it on your shoulder or cross body (the tri-color stripe on the shorter strap is just amazing). Though it’s suede and leather lined, it’s fabulously lightweight. It has a perfect slouch and isn’t too large, so you’ll love to wear it all weekend. And it’s big enough for a tablet, some files and all your necessities for a workday, too.

2. A business tote doesn’t need to be all business, especially this season. Monserat De Lucca’s soft broken-in leather just gets better with age, and the size is large enough to hold a laptop, but with a north/south shape that doesn’t look bulky. And this is where it gets special. It reverses to a suede that has a subtle shimmer to it. That's right, you get 2-bags-in-1 with this one, for 1 great price. So, whether you need a work bag, or a fun weekend tote, this is the answer. Click through the 'shop it' button to see for yourself. This line is all about accessories – handbags, belts, jewelry – with a lady-like feel that has just a touch of edge, and that’s what we love about it, for this spring and seasons to come.

3. There are a lot of bucket bags out there this season, and this Madewell one is not only our favorite aesthetically, the price is pretty amazing. It comes in black, and this rich saddle brown is ideal for the warmer months, matching everything from pastels to deeper tones – and great with denim. The optional longer strap gives you the easy alternative of wearing this bag crossbody or on your shoulder (the shorter strap can fit on your shoulder or be handheld). It has all the necessary interior pockets and lots of roominess in its rounded shape that doesn’t look too oversized or unwieldy for a sleek finish to a casual outfit for a day out, or something a little more polished for a night out.

4. With the big comeback of the bucket bag, we especially love it in a mini version for a night out or a casual day when you only need to carry your essentials. What’s so great about this rounded shape in a “mini” version is that it has more room than a typical clutch so you can maximize it’s capacity without carrying a larger bag. Rebecca Minkoff’s version is one of our favorite finds for it’s clean aesthetic and great color assortment. The longer strap works perfectly for this bag to be worn crossbody – great with a simple night out look like a sheath, maxidress, or jeans and lovely blouse. And it leaves your hands free for drinks and snacks. This Vinca blue is just so pretty and works with pastels, orange, deep burgundy, and any neutral. It also comes in black and creamy pale grey through the ‘shop it’ button.

5. Sporty inspiration and envelope styling, all in one stylish J.Crew clutch. The color combination is so spot-on and versatile, and the substantial (removable) wrist strap gives you the option to free up your hand for a drink or to hale a cab. This is an oversized clutch, so it will hold your cash, makeup, and even your sunglasses. Just because it has a sporty look, don’t dismiss it for your feminine outfits. We love it paired with a sleek black t-shirt dress and cute sandals, just as much as we adore it with rolled up jeans, heels and a sexy top. On a weekend, it looks great with an easy tee and relaxed pants, too.

6. Backpacks have always been practical, but now they’re fashionable, too. And you won’t beat the price of this adorable BAGGU canvas version. The stripe is great for spring and summer – for a relaxed weekend day, a casual office day, or a summer getaway. It’s got exterior pockets for the essentials you want to get to quickly – like your phone and sunglasses – and the main compartment of the bag has an easy drawstring under the flap which give it a slimmer silhouette and added security. Even at this amazing price, it has nice details like adjustable straps so it will fit a lady of every height.

Shoes. 7. Vince’s clean and modern design provides a sporty take on a flat that updates a wide leg trouser for work and any relaxed pants for a casual day at the office or running errands around town. The neutral woodsmoke is endlessly versatile and fresh looking with any summer color from navy and olive to pastels and whites. Of course, you can never go wrong with black (also through the ‘shop it’ button). The leather footbed and rubber sole not only give these shoes a stylish look, they make them incredibly comfortable.

8. The gladiator sandal is everywhere this season, and is a high-fashion look with options that lace all the way up to the knee. Diane von Furstenberg has our favorite interpretation of the season, with the lacing up the foot that can then wrap stylishly as high up on the leg or low around the ankle as you see fit. Once you click through the ‘shop it’ button, you can see a picture where they are laced up high. While this is a great fashion look, in general, we love tying them around the ankle, which is flattering on all leg types, and just as modern in a more timeless way. The flatform (a flat, with a thicker platform sole) gives some height, but is so cushiony comfortable. They are just as Grecian-chic in gold and both look great with a simple tank dress, a maxi dress, or rolled up jeans (or any casual pants) and a tee. This one is selling out fast, so don't hesitate.

9. What can we say about these Loeffler Randall’s soft gold lace-up sandals that will justify how ethereal and just plain pretty they are? The mini stars are just a touch of whimsical embellishment that adds a feminine finish to a casual summer dress or linen shorts and a simple top, accenting your foot and wrapping delicately around your ankle. We can’t stop looking at them – whether you are in an urban setting or off to the beach, these sandals will always bring a smile to your face.

10. Espadrilles have taken a front seat this season and this handmade version has an elevated look that is modern and sophisticated in its casual feel. Instead of a typical fabric, these peep toe slides have a super soft, well-made leather upper that offsets the jute detail of the sole stylishly. They come in black too, and this brown color has a slight metallic finish that adds texture without flash. While many espadrilles have a wedge, and it’s a look we adore, this flat version is a fresh take that you’ll throw on with shorts, pants, and your favorite casual dresses all summer long. Note: These run in whole sizes. If you are between sizes, we suggest sizing down.

11. The perfect way to wear white in a shoe, these J.Crew strappy sandals are laced with black in their rich, crackled leather that keeps them from looking stark. They lighten up a black outfit with ease, and work with any color in a fresh way. The single sole and tapered heel that’s just under 3 ½” is very “walkable” and beautifully lady-like. The slim ankle strap is comfortable and slimming on the leg.

12. Block heels are “back” and boy, do they make walking in heels comfortable. These Sam Edelman’s have an open feel with the crisscross strap and sling back so they don’t look heavy on the foot. The open upper creates an elongating line, and makes for a very updated mod look that is so stylish with a shift dress, swingy skirt or cropped pants.

Jewelry. 13. We always love a good ‘two-fer’ and this stylish long necklace does just that – the pendant reverses from pave crystals to a subtle etched pattern. So, whether you want to show a little bling to dress up a tank or blouse for a night out or you want a casual flare for a tee or maxi dress, this long necklace adjusts to whatever length you like and provides a touch of ‘70’s style to any of your timeless pieces.

14. Gold is as popular as ever, and statement cuffs are a great statement for spring and summer when we are wearing short sleeves and sleeveless options. Don’t think about this geometric pattern for just a dressy option, though it will certainly dress up a chic black dress for a formal event. It looks just as good with a simple white tee and jeans for brunch or a simple pair of trousers and a blouse for work. Gorjana always does great fashion pieces and this one won’t disappoint.

15. Hippie influences are stronger than ever this season, and adding a touch into your accessories is an easy way to incorporate the trend without feeling too trendy. This long chain has charms that all represent good luck, like a penny and a clover. We can all use a bit of good luck, but there are other pretty options for wisdom, success, love, and protection, too. Whatever you choose, you can wear it with a v-neck or round neck for a little pop to any casual outfit. We even like it with a button down, blazer and jeans for a little fun flare.

16. Chokers are back and we find chokers that hit the collar bone, rather than a true choker tight to the neck, are the most flattering for all body types. The architectural edge of this silver mesh triple-strand chain and 3 shades of blue painted cylinders is a true stunner. The gunmetal tone is striking with a simple black or white outfit – or one that combines the two for a color block statement that is modern and sophisticated. This is formal enough to pair with a dress for a wedding, but can also be chic with something like a crisp white suit and blouse that takes you to work and straight out to dinner.

Belts. 17.  Fringe is a big statement this season, and as we’ve been talking about, adding accessories is a really appropriate way to add some of these statements without making a big investment in them – or feeling like you are a slave to fashion. This fringe belt will add a touch of modern style to any timeless look, like a simple t-shirt dress or an easy linen tunic and slim pants. You can let the fringe hang down – a look we love with a maxi skirt or dress and flat sandals – or tuck the fringe around the back (see the 3rd image through the ‘shop it’ button) for a more subtle look. This is such a manageable way to work the fringe trend into your wardrobe without a big commitment.

18. For all the shirtdresses, easy tunics, shift dresses, and higher rise jeans, this belt is an absolute winner. There is no picture that does it justice, but it will elevate every outfit you wear it with. We are obsessed with this one. The leather is so soft, and it’s so easy to style – just close the button closure and then loop it like you were tying your robe. Both leather ends will hang effortlessly, and you can see how it looks on figure through the 'shop it' button. This style is sold out everywhere - you'll want yours before it's gone. Small is already sold-out through the 'shop it' button, but you may still be able to get it here.

19. A skinny woven belt in a medium brown provides a subtle retro influence that accentuates your waist in the most flattering way – especially with the higher rises that are prominent this season. This belt is beautifully feminine and flattering with medium to high-rise flare jeans, and just as beautiful with white or linen wide leg trousers for work or a night out. Tuck in your top to really show off the beautifully broken-in leather and woven detail. A pair of wedges or espadrilles will play up the feel for a polished finish.

20. This harness belt is a fabulous waist definer for any dress, skirt and blouse, or jumpsuit. We often talk about adding a leather belt to an outfit that has an elastic waist or to replace a fabric belt that many dresses and jumpsuits come with. This one does the job effortlessly and the burnished gold ring provides a little rugged edge to your look, so it looks great for a night out or a casual look for the weekend or a less formal workday. The black is endlessly versatile all year long, but it comes in brown too - at this great price from Anthropologie, you can’t go wrong.

21. Military inspiration is front and center with olive colors, pocketed shirts, and updated cargo pants re-emerging for the season. And with that comes ring belts. Madewell’s british surplus green canvas belt is adorable with khaki shorts or pants, and anything denim. Pair it with your favorite tee or tank (pops of yellow or orange play with this color easily) and saddle brown sandals to complete the look. One piece of military influence is all you need in your outfit for an easy style update. B-Low the Belt (one of our favorite belt makers for stylish belts in wonderful quality at very reasonable prices) makes a leather version for a more muted play on the military ring closure.

Sunglasses. 22. Round and oval sunglasses look really fresh and new again. Sometimes they can take on a very trendy ‘70’s vibe, but these Illesteva round-frames just look modern and updated. These are easily our favorite round frames of the season. The matte black frame is gorgeous and subtle, and the round shape isn’t so extreme so it looks great on a lot of different face shapes – whether you have a square shape (stronger jaw), heart shape (narrow jaw) or oval (balanced) shaped face. And that covers most of them. It also comes in tortoise through the ‘shop it’ button. And if you want to try your hand at some color or mirrored lenses, this is a great place to do it. The price is great for designer frames with 100% UV protection. They even come with a pretty leather case.

23. Have you tried Warby Parker yet? If not, let these be your first pair. The company was built on the premise of creating high-quality, good-looking eyewear at an amazing price by selling directly to the customer. And they’ve certainly succeeded. These sunglasses come in brown and black frames, but this tortoise with pink accenting (called Petal Tortoise through the ‘shop it’ button) is our top pick. It’s a subtle way to play with color and the combination looks great with most skin tones because the pink color is soft and neutral. Click through the “shop it” button to see them on a model, so you can see how the shape is really easy for many face shapes. They provide strong sun protection, and come with anti-scratch and anti-reflective lenses that they will make with your prescription, if you choose. The non-prescription lenses offer 100% UV protection. And you get it all for one amazing price.

24. These are a truly beautiful modification on an aviator, with an update of a slightly more rounded frame, yet the same timeless metal frame and slim arms that will make these a style you’ll wear for years. Yves Saint Laurent really brings the posh level up a notch by not just offering your basic silver or gold metal options. These frames come in a soft rose gold or a gunmetal called palladium black (shown) – both options are so sophisticated and face flattering, we simply could choose a favorite. Click through the ‘shop it’ button to see the glasses on a model and check out both colors. The quality is top-notch with 100% UV protection all the luxury of YSL’s Italian made designs.

Click through the ‘shop it’ button to see how flattering they are on –they sit flush to the face and the subtle uplift of the cateye works for round faces as well as longer and leaner shapes alike. This blush tortoise is a beautifully brown mix that we love for all complexions, but they come in black and some pop colors for fun, too. The metal accents keep these frames from looking too heavy, so you can easily wear them with everything – and for everything. When you’re not wearing them, you’ll love seeing the adorable case they come with in your bag.
