Even if we are living the full effects of mid-winter, we can always daydream about spring and its beautiful lush colors and textures, the blooming nature and the… fashion trends. What’s in store for us this spring in terms of accessories, jewelry, footwear, bags and so on? Let’ see the next five accessories which are said to be the next big thing this season!

1. Thick, Heavy, Tank-Style Sandals

From Alexander Want to Chanel and from Vuitton to Kenzo, the footwear this spring season got a new heavy look. We are talking about thick soles, metal-spiked platforms, wide straps, chain adornments, clunky, chunky and tank-style sandals. It seems that long gone are the days of narrow, fine straps and (almost invisible) thin soles. This spring it’s all about comfort and quite the attitude.

2. Glittering Everything

It’s not only the shoes that will glitter this season, but everything wearable as well. Marc Jacob’s golden hued stilettos, adorned with beads, chains and refined jewelry make an outstanding add-on to any woman’s shoes collection, but when it comes to glitter, anything goes, from evening dresses to tank tops.

3. Stones and Studs Purses

From famous designers such as Chanel, to more affordable labels, such Jessica McClintock, the stones and studs minaudiere evening bag is a must-have this spring. Made in satin, velvet, leather or semi-precious metals, even plastic, the evening clutches this spring make a symphony of color, spark, glam and elegance. Obviously, they go great with the glittering shoes and the next types of accessories we will look at in a minute.

4. Imposing Tiaras

Vogue Magazine depicts the new headwear accessories in terms of  “Crown Jewels” and they are not far from the truth. Fresh off the catwalk and straight to the streets, here come head jewelry pieces in crystals, gemstones, precious metals, a myriad of models and sparkling colors. The classical bride tiara is no longer exclusive to brides, as Saint Laurent, Rodarte, Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana are convinced tiaras should be worn also on casual occasions, matching casual outfits.

5. Shoulder Duster Earrings

What is new in the shoulder-dusting earrings trends are not the earrings per se, but the innovative models, materials and styles. Prada really makes a statement with its oversized bubblegum-colored pompon shoulder duster earrings, while Alexander Wang brings some solid metal chain links. This season’s statement earrings use almost all possible materials, colors, textures and models, for a real splash of originality.

What spring accessories do you favor the most? What’s your guilty pleasure when it comes to jewelry, footwear or bags?
