This spring, boost your wardrobe with fabulous accessories in bold colors. Handbags, jewelry and other fashionable accessories are a great way to change your look without having to buy a whole new wardrobe. Shari Shakun, General Merchandise Manager for SmartBargains.com, provided us with some of the hottest tips and trends for spring.
This spring we will continue to see oversized satchels, totes and hobos, but the standout trend for the season is oversized clutches. Look for kiss lock, envelope and magnetic closure bags in all colors — even browns — to make a statement in a big way!
We will also see bright patents in all shapes and sizes. Colors such as magenta, mango, bright green and yellow are among the season’s hottest shades. And skins are still in! Snake and croc as long as it’s in color – reds, purples, blues and pinks are a must.
This spring looks to be one of the most exciting and colorful seasons we’ve had in a long time, with a style to suit everyone’s personality.
