Warm weather means a lot of things -- impromptu patio parties, backyard barbecues, not wearing socks until at least September and farmers markets filled with delicious goods. We’re letting one of our absolute favorite farmers market finds -- juicy red berries -- inspire our current crop of covetable style picks. From footwear to accessories, read on for some sweet, berry-hued fashion must-haves.
We knew we had to have these gorgeous Marc by Marc Jacobs platform sandals as soon as we laid eyes on them (shopbop.com, $380). The peep toe suede platforms have a decidedly vintage vibe, but the bold raspberry hue and bronze heel give them an urban twist we love. Pair these ultra-cool heels with anything from maxi dresses to skinny jeans.
Dip dye tote
On days where the errands pile up to the point of not being home for hours, we need a bag big enough to carry a day’s worth of essentials. For spring, the job will go to this colorful, berry-soaked tote dip-dyed for an eye-catching ombre effect (loft.com, $70).
We’re big fans of Alice + Olivia with good reason. They create fun, flirty frocks that flatter no matter the season or occasion. This spring we’ll be sporting this gathered blouson tank dress in a pretty shade of strawberry (aliceandolivia.com, $368). Pair with statement heels and an oversize clutch for get-noticed spring style.
Casual need not be boring. Case in point: this cute strawberry-hued top with three quarter sleeves and pretty ribbon tie detail at the neck (stanwells.com, $163). Wear this simple but stylish piece with your favorite jeans to give your comfy weekend look a little something extra.
Berry and bloom ring
Jazz up your jewelry box with this fun and fabulous bronze plated ring adorned with berry-hued blooms and Swarovski crystals (forzieri.com, $58). We love the richness of the colors and of course, the sparkle makes us smile.
Cuffed denim shorts
While we’d never be able to part ways with our favorite faded denim cut-offs, we will definitely be switching things up with a pair of these cute shorts in a bold shade of raspberry (macys.com, $62). Wear these summer-ready shorts with wedge sandals and a white off-the-shoulder T-shirt for effortless warm weather style.
