6 Dated Spring Accessories I Don't Plan on Wearing This Year

There's a special place in my heart for winter accessories, but it's time to move on for now. The official start of spring is next month, and it'll be a welcome change in temperature for most of us. It'll also be a significant change for our wardrobes as we dust off our tank tops and white dresses and put away the winter gear, which I'm too tired of to even list right now.

The thing that I enjoy most about spring accessories is that they don't have to be quite as functional and practical as their winter counterparts. They don't really need to keep you warm or cool—their main purpose is to enhance your outfits and add some personality to your basics.

As I've been doing with my entire wardrobe, I've taken stock of my spring accessories as the season looms near, and I found a few hiding in my closet that have peaked. Hence, I plan on replacing them with some fresher trends. Scroll to see what they are if you're curious, and shop the spring accessories I do plan on wearing this year.


Skipping: Colored Frames
Buying: Oval Sunglasses

There was a time when sunglasses with brightly colored frames were my go-to, but now, I turn to more sophisticated pairs. In particular, I think oval-shaped shades are trendy, timeless, and flattering on a variety of face shapes.

Skipping: Floppy Straw Hats
Buying: Baseball Logo Caps

Baseball hat trend



Perhaps if I was vacationing on the French Riviera, I'd want to pack a floppy straw hat, but otherwise, I'm over the trend. But a hat trend I don't think I'll ever be over is baseball caps, and there are tons of fun logo ones on the market to choose from, some of which are quite affordable.

Skipping: Espadrille Sneakers
Buying: Platforms and Flatforms

Espadrilles, in general, aren't a trend I'm crazy about, and I never felt like the espadrille-sneaker trend suited me. A trend that definitely shows no signs of cooling off is platforms, and while I'm a little hesitant to try the ultra-high platforms, never say never.

Skipping: Bucket Bags
Buying: Motorcycle Bags

Balenciaga moto bag



There was a time when you couldn't have pried my bucket bags out of my hands, but all good things must come to an end. (Although, I'm positive the trend will return.) The current style I'm into is a little more specific, but Balenciaga's reboot of its motorcycle bags has made me fall hard for the trend.

Skipping: Shell Jewelry
Buying: Dopamine Jewelry

Spring jewelry trend



I think we can all agree that seashell jewelry is fun and vacation-friendly, but it's a trend that cycles in and out. Right now, it's all about brightly colored baubles that can't help but lift your mood and lure in compliments.

Skipping: PVC Shoes
Buying: Pointed-Toed Shoes

RIP, my one pair of PVC shoes. Two things drive me up a wall about them: They're uncomfortable, and they look pretty gross when they fog up, which is often. I'm happy to bid the trend adieu and will instead be shopping for pointed-toe shoes, as they are back again (but they never really left).
