The moment you feel that winter has set in, spring creeps up around the corner. It can be a challenging and fast-paced world for those fashionistas who are keen to make sure they are always one step ahead of the curve.
Winter is a good season for fashion choices, mainly because you get to get your layering game well and truly on. However, the color palette for the colder months can tend to be a little moody and practically monotone, mainly because anything else just sticks out like the proverbial sore thumb.
However, spring is the chance to break free from the shackles and start to come out of your fashion hibernation. Color can start to flourish, and the chances you take can tend to be a little more daring.
To help you on your way, we’ve come up with a list of a handful of great accessory ideas that are seemingly set for big things in spring 2023. You’re welcome.
If you thought that custom-made jewelry was big in 2022, then get ready for 2023, when the trend is going to be everywhere. You don’t want to see the ship sail without having tried to board, so get moving right away.
We recommend considering a subtle Women initial necklace, and there are many styles and types out there, and there are many ways to ride this craze. You can look to spell out your initials in an engraved initial and date combination, or you can add the delightful detail of a birthstone to make it really pop.
Stars of stage and screen are really taking to the personalized jewelry trend, and that is helping to push it to the masses, so what are you waiting for?
Bags that Sparkle and Shine
This accessory trend is more of an idea than a specific type. When you make your customary spring bag purchase, in whatever type of bag you are buying, look for those with sparkly features.
Something that shimmers, perhaps with sequins or blinged-out additions that practically make your bag light up. This is the kind of ideal spring accessory as it helps usher us out from the cold of winter and into the much milder time of year that is spring.
This is the time of year to start to amp up that airy, light, and playful mood. You might even want to consider rhinestones. Yes…rhinestones.
You’re Gonna Need Your Knee-Highs!
By all accounts knee high boots are the way to go this spring. It makes sense. These delightful things are great with short skirts and midi-dresses, and the weather is getting a little better, so why not?
Dark colors are still very much the ideal path to take, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take a risk or two with a pair that are tres sexy or have some additional detailing to make them really stand out.
Heel or no heel, that’s up to you; the most important thing is these boots need to be long and, ideally, as the song goes, made for walking.
Bags With a Fringe
Tassels and fringes are set to be big in spring, and therefore your bag choice is a great way to play along. Now, if you are daring and willing to well and truly push the fashion trend envelope, then your bag fringes need to be long, so long they are practically dragging on the floor behind you.
Even when it comes to the humble clutch bag, we want to see fringes. There is a certain courageous ‘out there’ appeal to these, and you should be free to ride the train as far and as fast as you wish. It’s the thought that counts…and the fringe. By the way, bright color fringes will score you extra bonus points.
There’s no denying it, ballet pumps are a kind of love them or hate them thing, but for spring 2023, we urge you to get with the program. The good news is that they are very versatile, and there are many types, colors, and styles to approach this from, and one is sure to fit your personal taste.
They are good for the changeable season as they work well with long flowing dresses and with those choices that leave more leg on show. They are also adaptable when it comes to catering to your work/life balance. In other words, they are refined enough for the office but can also be an excellent look for a night out on the town with the girls.
I guess we should have seen this accessory trend coming. The past 18 months have all been about oversized items, be they tote bags or big platform boots. Now, you are encouraged to go all out and do likewise with your jewelry choices.
There’s no call for being dainty; now you want to chunk up your earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings. Clearly, how big you go is up to you, and some of us are less likely to go all-in, but you should at least play the game by looking for thicker items, like perhaps stacking items instead, which will more than help you adhere to the statement that is being made.
Light It Up With Neon
Spring is here, so it’s time to brighten things up. That appears to mean that for 2023 neon is the way to go. Whether that’s with your footwear choices, the bag selection you might make, or the jewelry you might wear, don’t be afraid to attract the attention of passersby, both day and night.
Important side note, make sure the neon aspect isn’t too jarring with the rest of your ensemble.
