If there’s anytime of the year that you decide to wear pastel colors, spring is the perfect opportunity to do so. Pastels represent spring just as much as floral patterns, making them a must-have. These colors include shades such as baby blue, baby pink, mint green and light yellow. Beige and ivory are great neutral alternatives as well. Accessorizing with a pastel purse or waist belt can easily make any outfit feminine and appropriate for spring.

2. Sheer Scarves

Vibrant prints and patterns are common in sheer scarves, making them a great addition to your spring wardrobe. Whether you wear them with a light cardigan or tie them around your neck, sheer scarves will keep you both warm and cool.

Sunglasses are useful all year round, whenever there’s sunshine. Come spring time, you can brighten up your ensemble with a pair of white framed sunglasses. Black and tortoise might be the classic styles that every woman must own, but a pair with white frames is the ultimate spring accessory. Not only does it have a clean and crisp look, but it’s a neutral color that can coordinate with multiple styles and outfits. Types of sunglasses that can be found with white frames (or any other color) include wayfarers, cat eyes and oversized sunglasses.

Accessories in bright yellow shades are an absolute must for your spring wardrobe. This color is commonly associated with sunshine, something that there is much more of during the spring. While it’s definitely a statement color, you can wear it in many different ways. A large tote or wide headband is perfect if you love bright and bold accessories, while stud earrings or skinny belts make great accents. Colors that work best with yellow include navy blue, green, pink, and white.

Statement necklaces can really complete a look, regardless of the time of the year. It’s an essential accessory all year round, but even more so during the spring. With less layering and bundling up, statement jewelry has a greater chance to shine. The transition from winter to spring is quite drastic, making a fierce and bold necklace more than appropriate. Opt for statement necklaces featuring flowers, mixed media, and vibrant colors.

7. Polka Dots
