So, you want your outfits to be on trend this spring without going out and purchasing a whole new wardrobe? We have just the thing: The accessory trend that makes a big impact, whether you spend over $500 or under $50 to tap into it. You see, the freshest accessories right now—shoes and bags to be specific—all have one thing in common: a zingy, refreshing lime-green hue. Think of this new shade of green as the evolution of the neon trend; it's more toned-down and wearable than true neon but does have the same outfit-making effect. These days, the bright hues are mostly reserved for accessories and everyone from buzzy Insta labels to mall brands are putting their spin on these 2020 versions.
Naturally, as we like to do with other emerging trends we spot, we wanted to offer our own perspective. We went ahead and designed several affordable lime-green shoes and bags (in trendy shapes, of course) for our Who What Wear collection because it's what we do best. To see our favorite ways to wear the lime accessory trend and shop our versions among others, keep scrolling.
