Black Face Masks
When it comes to protecting yourself, you may as well do it beautifully. Sleek black face masks match almost any outfit you wear, and they offer great coverage for your nose and mouth. The beauty behind this face-covering is the limitless styling opportunities that come along with it. From an accordion-style to a traditional shape, there are so many choices that will keep you and others safe.
Taking inspiration from the 50s and the 60s, this sleek fashion trend is coming back in a big way. Headscarves protect your hair and add a finishing touch to your outfit without overdoing it. Choose from a silky design with floral motifs or intricate patterns, or keep it simple with bold colors and block letters. When styling this accessory, you can wrap the fabric under your chin in a loose knot, or have it hanging off the back of your head – mix things up by wrapping it around your neck or let it dangle from your bag. Channeling your inner Grace Kelly has never been easier with this classic go-to item.
This season yellow bags have taken over the runways and the streets. This trend is easy to replicate and it is timeless – choose a small clutch to spice up an outfit or find a mustard tote for your daily needs. There are so many shades to choose from that suit your taste, and they look incredible when paired with other vibrant hues or a monochromatic ensemble.
Pop Blue Accessories
Why blend in when you were born to stand out? Add a pop of blue to your monochrome outfit to update your go-to outfits. The beauty behind this trend is the unlimited amount of options you can try throughout the season – from a duck egg blue handbag from Dior to a chic Marine Serre bucket hat, you can try it all. When styling these items, opt for all black or grey outfits. The bright hue will stand out amongst the deeper shades. Mix and match your accessories and discover a new favorite way to rock your key pieces.
The most popular shoes have not been stilettos, pumps, sandals, or sneakers. They are Birkenstocks, Crocs, and now that the weather is turning cool again, Uggs. A comfortable, anti-fashion shoe is proving to be 2021’s most bankable proposition.
Fringing on the Bags
When it’s time to make a statement, let your handbag do the talking. This season, one of the biggest looks we’ve seen is the fringing on the bags. Let the tassels dangle close to the fabric or watch them almost hit the floor for maximum impact – the over-the-top design is sure to turn some heads and keep you feeling chic. Choose from a leather fringe or shearling – you can rock this piece any season, and make it work for almost any event. For a classic feel, choose dark hues like brown or black, but if you want to stand out from the others, take a dip into bold shades like red or green. If you’re ready to shake up your go-to style, this is the item to pick!
Market Totes and Straw Bags
The best carryall for spring 2021 is humble and handmade. Anna Sui crafted her knit bags from recycled cotton T-shirts, while Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli sent out a shoulder bag in macramé leather. Crafters can try to DIY their own versions, inspired by Christian Dior and The Row’s woven totes.
Hold the Phone
Phone cases and lanyards are the granny chains of the forgetful, promising that you’ll never lose your phone somewhere between the kitchen, bedroom, and living room again—and that when you leave the house you have the number one accessory of the 21st century safely with you.
PEARLS ALL OVER
Though retro mini-sunglasses straight out of the 1990s, are still – and always – popular, futuristic-looking XXL sunglasses are having a moment.
