With the first buds of spring comes the thought of Easter outfits, bright accessories and all things pastel. The spring palette is always a fun way to embrace seasonal change and inspire a new wardrobe. Whether you’re planning Easter outfits, Passover ensembles, or just getting ready for a spring update to your wardrobe, celebrate the end of winter with vibrant spring accessories. As we start to put away our thick coats and head outside for much-needed vitamin D, the latest thing in shopping carts are dark tones and heavy fabrics. Enter new spring accessories: cat-eye sunglasses, multicolored handbags, pastel sandals, and even floral-patterned socks, perfect for sprucing up your Easter outfits or everyday spring ensembles. Not ready to put away the black, navy and gray yet? Consider some of the soft-hued pieces below that will make any outfit sing. We think you will thank us.
It’s been a long, cold winter. One of the most exciting seasonal accessory transitions is switching from boots to sandals for spring. Whether it’s pale blue sandals from Loeffler Randall (fresh pedicure not included), lavender pumps from Liu Jo or buttery yellow kitten heels from By Far, these are the perfect pastel shoes to pair with Easter outfits and beyond this season.
This may seem like the biggest outfit modification, but adding a touch of pastel with a small handbag is extremely impactful. Whether it’s a multicolored bag from Barcelona brand Mietis or a classic shaped ruched shoulder bag from Staud, brightly colored handbags are sure to leave an impression.
Enamel and gemstones are an easy way to incorporate the pastel palette into your wardrobe. From these enamel drop earrings to Sophie Buhai’s marbled chalcedony-strung blue bead necklace, this is the piece of jewelry you should wear all season long.
Hats and hair accessories
As for classic Easter outfits, headwear or hairpieces are a must – the old-fashioned bonnet is not included. Don’t miss the chance to add a pastel accent from crocheted bucket hats, a delicate tulle bow or hair clip, a colorful print scarf or even the Apple AirPod Max headphones (which are just as fashionable than functional).
When the sun returns, sunglasses will be an integral part of your spring wardrobe. Sunglasses are a great way to add a touch of pastel to your outfit that can be as extreme or matching as you want. Opt for exaggerated cat-eye glasses from Kuboraum or a buttery yellow lens from Oliver Peoples.
While we’re still holding out for bare-legged summer weather, early spring temperatures can often mean continuing to wear a pair of tights or socks. Consider adding a splash of color with these Prada and Calzedonia tights, or a pretty floral pattern like these Loveshackfancy socks.
