These 29 Easy Accessories Will Instantly Elevate All of Your Outfits This Spring

Since the weather has been particularly dreary lately, I'm taking the optimistic approach and looking toward the spring days that lie ahead. And since I'm not the kind of person that resorts to buying a brand new wardrobe each season, I look to accessories to bring in the needed refresh. Think of them as the key ingredient needed to complete your outfit recipe. That plain T-shirt-and-jeans combo you wear on lazy days? A metallic belt or luxe leather handbag can bring it to the next level. It's as simple as that.

Shopping for accessories can often take less commitment than clothing and plus, they earn the cost per wear at a quicker pace. (You might be judged for wearing the same shirt four days in a row, but no one will bat an eye if you drag the same handbag around for weeks.) These past few months, I've been relying on chunky scarves, metallic bags, and tall socks, and the next season comes with both repeats and fresh takes. Some favorites include woven handbags, dainty chokers, and patent-leather flats. Keep scrolling to find and shop your pick of the bunch.

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
