Spring is the time to bring back color into one’s wardrobe. This Mothers Day, help your mom revamp her accessory collection with some fine gift ideas that we’ve listed down below. But before we dive in deep, here are some Springtime accessorizing tips that you might want to consider when investing in pieces for yourself and for your mother.
- Be creative. The whole point of fashion is being able to express one’s self through style and pieces that you like. Wear scarves around your waist or wrist to bring a fresh take on the accessory. Don’t limit yourself to the function of a particular piece. Take for example the clutch, which is often used in the evenings. Harper’s Bazaar suggests using one in daytime because after all, it still functions well even during the day.
- Wear accessories on your head. Spring and Summer are a perfect time to sport sunny hats, headbands, and the like. Headbands are back in style thanks to the Spring/Summer ’19 runway looks provided by Dior and Miu Miu, among others.
- Sport them totes! Big bags are in. In fact, they’re so in that people are wearing two bags instead of just one. This is another Spring/Summer ’19 runway look that somehow makes sense. After all, many women are telecommuting nowadays and the office has become anywhere they can plug their laptops in.
- Don’t skip the sandals. They’re in this season and appropriately so, as the season calls for adventure and travel.
