Patent leather accessories are a big must-have this spring. A beautiful patent handbag in a bright red or yellow makes a bold impression with a smart suit for work. If you don’t want to make a huge impression, but still want to be trendy, try a brown faux snake-skin patent pump. And remember, a little bit goes a long way.
A cute peep-toe pump, like this Tortoise Heel from Wet Seal is perfect for work. Wear with a suit, or trouser jeans and a fitted blazer. Patent shoes spice up any outfit, so don’t go overboard with jewelry. You don’t want to look like a circus!
Straw, wood, & cork are going to be huge this spring. We are seeing them pop up in all the stores now. Everything from Old Navy to Banana Republic. You can get on board with this trend no matter what your budget is.
Look for things like straw tote bags and cork heel wedges. These natural fiber pieces are great with florals and prints bringing a fresh, natural look to your outfit. If you are looking for something a little fancier, try a jute and leather trim weekend bag.
Yes ladies, the nautical trend isn’t going away any time soon. Sporty stripes on handbags and shoes are a huge must-have this coming spring season. You might be worried about what to wear them, but don’t worry, this look is easy to create. Wear some smart striped ballet flats with a white suit to work, with a red button down shirt underneath.
You can also pair a cute striped handbag with a spring dress – the biggest must-have of 2007. This is another “a little bit goes a long way” type of trend. Just one fabulous striped accessory adds a whole new dimension to a simple outfit.
A great floral handbag like this one is another bag that is perfect for work. Match it up with simple, solid colors. A great chino suit is perfection with a cute floral handbag. It’s also a must-have for every woman that works.
Floral print shoes are also hot this season. We see them popping up in stores from Payless to Victoria’s Secret. This fabulous pair of platform sandals with an ankle strap would look great with dresses and cropped pants. While this pair of cute floral wedges would look great with bermuda shorts or skinny jeans (if you still want to wear them!).
Last, but not least, keep your eyes peeled for flats, heels, and wedges. Those are the three main shoe styles you are going to be seeing this spring. (No, flip flops will never be in style!)
This year, it’s all about comfort when it comes to shoe styles. These three styles look great with just about anything. Jeans, whether wide-leg or skinny look super smart with wedges. And flats are feminine with dresses and cropped pants. We all know heels make any outfit look smarter, so buy away and get ready for spring with these hot off the runway tips from The Fashionable Housewife!
