Warm, sunny weather has been making brief appearances here and there in NYC and it is making us super antsy to start swapping our sweaters and scarves for skirts and sandals. Now, we would love to be able to go out and get a whole new wardrobe to welcome in Spring and Summer, but our wallets, unfortunately, won’t allow for that. But we can spice things up with a few key accessories. These are Lipstick & Sweatpants’ top 5 Accessories You Need This Spring and Summer!
Yes, these shades are a little pricier than the other items on this list. And yes, they are worth it. Not only will the modern update on a classic shape compliment literally everything you wear (for many seasons to come), you can also feel good about shopping for a cause. Warby Parker matches every pair of glasses sold with funding for/ a pair of glasses for those in need. Shopping with a conscience looks good on you. Read more about how Warby Parker gives back HERE.
Alright – so a hair product isn’t technically something you’d expect to see on this list, but your hair is definitely the best accessory a girl could have. However, your hair is probably still recovering from the brutal weather this winter threw at us and soon, it’s going to get hit with sun damage and humidity – so, ya gotta give it a little TLC. Ecru New York’s Acacia Protein Oil is a super lightweight styling and treatment oil formulated with Almond Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Extra Virgin Argan oil, Hydrolyzed Keratin, and Acacia Collagen™. The magical elixir will moisturize and condition all while protecting against heat damage, eliminating frizz, reducing dry time, and mending split ends.
Big, bold, three dimensional broaches and pins are back and this Diamond Spider Broach from Humble Chic is everything right now. It’s dainty, it’s edgy, and it will definitely be a conversation starter.
Menswear inspired accessories are still all the rage and these Teaton Cognac Crochet Cutout Oxford Flats are a great way to incorporate the trend in your everyday look. The pretty lace and cutout details add just the right amount of femininity to keep these oxfords from looking like they came straight from the men’s department.
From earrings and necklaces to swinging bags – fringe is in! This Punk Tassel Fringe Handbag Satchel Purse/Hobo Tote comes with a removable shoulder strap so you can rock this hippie chic bag two ways and with every outfit.
Jazz up any basic t-shirt and jeans, simple dress, or add a finishing touch to your bohemian style maxi skirt with a pair of big and bold earrings, like these Fame and Fortune Turquoise Rhinestone Earrings. While they are oversized, the slightly muted colors keep these from looking too costume-y and/or outfit specific.
So which accessory (or accessories?!) will you be adding to your Spring and Summer wardrobe?
