The early arrival of spring breathes life into Savannah style. Invigorating bursts of color appear mirroring the change in the surrounding environment. Using bright accessories to reinvigorate darker pieces can help transition fall and winter pieces into warmer weather. This Fashionista uses a neon-hued cross-body bag as a bold punch of color, giving her ensemble a fresh look. Stacked bracelets and rings paired with a statement necklace add another layer visual interest. Feminine accessories worn with a sporty shirt-dress give the look a perfect blend of casual and chic.

SS: I go to my friends majoring in fashion for advice more often than not. I also look to celebrities and blogs for trends.
CF: What is your favorite piece in your wardrobe and why?
SS: I’ve noticed, this season, my favorite piece is my army green jacket. It is not too light or too heavy, and also matches most of my outfits because of its neutral color.
How To: Casual chic style is the marriage between elegant details and comfortable ease. Get this look by pairing an athletic-inspired T-shirt dress with a statement necklace. Splurge on an investment piece from DANNIJO or get the same look and save with jewelry from BaubleBar. Layer your bracelets and rings to add polished shine and glamour. A neon or pastel bag will provide a final burst of color. Next time the weather is exceptionally beautiful, take it as a sign it’s time to debut your newest spring accessories!
