Listen, I have to be honest with you on this: I wear statement earrings all year round, regardless of trends. In fact, I don't understand non-statement jewelry trends. So, while these are back in a big way for spring, they are ALWAYS in for me.
All that said, I was very happy to see so many statement earrings in fashion magazines this year - they look especially good with a bare shoulder, and even more so with a jump suit.
In my work life, I tend to stick to black, and more black, but lately I've found myself really drawn to prints. While my current prints tend to be on black backgrounds for work, I've been embracing a more adventurous look for after work. I'm a huge fan of palm leaf prints, and who knows, I may even get brave enough to attempt a paisley print this summer! Incidentally, prints pair beautifully with chunky brass jewelry, which you can always check out over at the Bombay Taxi Boutique store.
Straw bags and pom poms
This trend is absolutely EVERYWHERE and personally, I could not be more excited about it! However, I'm doing my own little twist on this trend, and unlike all the fashion bloggers in my feed carrying the straw clutch (you know the one) or the round bag below, I've decided I'm going to upcycle mine by picking up a straw bag at a thrift store and using these handy pom poms I ordered off Amazon to create my own look for well under $20, maybe even under $15!
What fashion trends are you embracing this spring?
