5 Not-So-Basic Accessories You'll Want This Spring

As we hitch a ride on the climate change rollercoaster, spring seems to slip farther and farther away from us every day. Thankfully, the calendar never lies, and regardless of the weather we endure, our wardrobe will not take the L.

With the seasons changing, there’s no better time to update your wardrobe on a trend level. It’s all about stepping aside from your basics, or instead, complementing them, with the season’s latest flares. Today, the boldest and brightest color schemes are popping up everywhere in accessory form, and we’re totally fangirling every moment of it.

Here’s the ultimate fashion-girl’s not-so-basic shopping guide to spring into the season!

1— VIBRANT MULES. Give your black booties a break, and step into a brighter shoe to give your outfit a peep of your personality. You can tell a lot about a person from the shoes they wear, after all. (Photo via @maddyhaller)

2— NEWSBOY HAT. Take it from it-girl Kendall Jenner and channel your inner Hannah Montana, because this blast from the past is street style’s newest trend. (Photo via @mmoor)
