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.
