Whether the lipstick itself looks good or distracts from less-than-stellar products, you feel pulled together as soon as you put on a bold lipstick! Red lips are a classic, but they’re also always on-trend. They’re classy, edgy, polished, and elegant but unpretentious too. They work in a busy office as a truly woman-empowering accessory not just for special occasions but for every day of the week. Red lips don’t always have to be bold.

2. 60’S Wallpaper & Sunnies

Apparel:

Retro prints rule the runways. Bringing both major color and pattern from vintage wallpaper to paisley psychedelic prints, they are all making a comeback. To nail the thrift-chic, hippie look, go for bohemian fabrics, breezy dresses, and peasant blouses with floral or art-deco designs. They are an essential element to sixties style, which is all about keeping it playful and free-spirited. Good vibes only.

Accessories:

The sun will soon be shining, and you will likely want to protect your eyes with some of the stunning spring/summer 2020 sunglasses! While you might like tiny glasses, it is the oversized retro-inspired shapes that are taking over this spring. Wearing oversized sunglasses can make a strong fashion statement, so this season go for big, bold frames in round or square shapes. I have always found that sunglasses, a necessary accessory for any woman, are the kind of thing you can justify spending on. If you buy them right, you’ll have them forever.

What better accessory to complete this 60’s look than a vintage pair of oversized sunglasses. It’s a no brainer – they complement each other so perfectly. If you’re going to go retro, you might as well have fun and go all out, sunglasses included.

This is yet another spring color trend that’s likened to food. Embrace pistachio green as an alternative to the textbook pastels this coming spring. This happy color can be incorporated into your wardrobe through dresses, separates, handbags, or shoes, giving all your outfits a fresh, modern feel. Pistachio is the perfect versatile shade to transition from winter to spring. That’s why I think every woman needs to run out and buy herself a pistachio green outfit ASAP!

4. Bright Orange & Wedges

Bright Orange & Wedges

Apparel:

Is it even spring without a fun, vibrant color to throw into the mix? Designers have already made liberal use of the cheery citrus shade in their spring 2020 collections, so expect even more orange in your future. From subtle shades of sherbet to traffic-cone hues, orange is getting all of the attention. This flamboyant color is more polarizing than most, since people tend to either love it or hate it. Whatever your feelings are about this color, there’s no denying that orange is one of the most dynamic colors out there. It’s attention-grabbing, stimulating, and vivacious. And for all those reasons, I think every woman should have a splash of orange in their closet to help brighten up their wardrobe.

Accessories:

If you want to boost your look and your height this season, there’s no better accessory than bold platform/flatform shoes. Yes, those thick and chunky shoes are back once again and are going to be dominating the street style scene. Those who prefer flats to stiletto heels also might prefer the comfort of these as compared to heels. Plus, they just have a nice fashion-forward look.

Why they make the perfect combo:

Let’s dive right into the color orange paired with wedges! Well first off, ”why not”?! This combo is nothing short of a feel-good, fabulous look that screams both bold and stylish. It’s great if you’re looking to make a statement without compromising your comfort. If you’re a little bit hesitant about wearing bright orange with a statement shoe, then try partnering it with a neutral platform. This will help draw less attention to the shoe and more on the outfit. The bottom line: this combo is just so fun!

5. Tropical Prints & Scarves

Tropical Prints & Scarves

Apparel:

This style is inspired by exotic islands and wild forests, and this is the season to celebrate your adventurous spirit. Let’s face it: you are heading to the jungle in these tropical prints. Whether there’s an actual trip on the horizon or not, thanks to this particular spring and summer trend, you can at least dress like you’re headed on the tropical vacation of a lifetime through nature and fruit-inspired prints!

Accessories:

Colorful and versatile headscarves are back as a great option for those bad hair days. You can easily style your hair with any fabric while simultaneously adding that whimsical, casual vibe to your overall look. There are various kinds of headscarves and lots of different ways to sport them. Roll it, wrap it, or tie it – the options are endless. If you’re ready to start spring the right way, be sure to add them to your list of “must accessories” for 2020.

Whether or not you’re on a tropical island, just have fun with your look. Clash those patterns, pile on the brights, and hey…why not add a printed headscarf to the mix?

6. Florals & Buckle Belts

Florals & Buckle Belts

Apparel:

Spring is a classic time to showcase florals. This well-known pattern gives us a wave of nostalgia that can be incorporated into modern garments. Not only are florals available in a rainbow of colors, but there are also a million ways to wear them! With unexpected pairings and bold flowers, these modest styles depict gardens and bouquets in fresh, new ways.

Accessories:

Whether they have gold buckles, are set with rhinestones, or are embellished with animals or insects, belts have always played an important role. Nowadays, the bigger the buckle, the cooler the belt. If you are among the fashion-forward, you know how much of a difference a belt can make to your outfit and how some accessories can serve up as much style as they serve a purpose. While buckle belts are a great way to add personality and charm to your look, they can also help cinch flowy maxi dresses, trousers, and skirts to add structure to your look. No outfit is complete without a buckle belt.

Why they make the perfect combo:

If you like to take risks, then you might like to incorporate retro florals with throwback styles. Try on Bohemian or grunge styles and make them look modern and fresh by adding the right accessory. For example, a luxe leather buckle belt can create just the perfect contrast when paired right. “Perfectly sweet” with a touch of “tough girl” – now that’s the look we’re going for ladies!

7. Crochet & Straw Hats

Crochet & Straw Hats

Apparel:

Crochet is getting a cool update this spring. Think ultra-feminine dresses, skirts, and tops with a special touch of Grandma’s handmade crochet. As the fashion industry looks for ways to become more sustainable, there’s something special about a “trend” that embraces a slow, handmade technique that can be passed down generation after generation.

Accessories:

Straw hats are an important staple for the spring/summer season, since they help to shield us from the sun, but they also make for an excellent addition to any outfit. Opt for an array of fetching styles, from wide-brimmed to panama, floppy, or fedora. Wear with anything, anytime, anywhere. And remember, the wider the brim, the more of a statement you’ll make.

Why they make the perfect combo:

Is there a better way to usher in spring or summer than with a golden straw hat & crochet apparel? It immediately conjures memories of vacations to hot, exotic places, where the sun shines bright and hot. Nevertheless, as much as we think of vacation with these two things, it doesn’t have to be relegated to the beach. This look can be chic and effortless on the streets too. It’s all about how you wear it. The look we are going for is crisp, fresh, and feminine.
