Spring Into Accessories

Spring Into Accessories

Even though the Chicago weather is sparingly generous, the tempting sun and green grass are slowly encouraging us to trade our drab winter palette for something brighter and more cheery. It’s time to sport shorter sleeves and higher hemlines. Why not give your bare skin a little flair?!

Spring and Summer are the perfect time to accessorize to your heart’s desire. Whether you’re into bold statement pieces or delicate accents, your warm weather wardrobe isn’t complete without a few accessory essentials. MODA explores this season’s trends for jewelry, sunglasses, bags, and shoes to help you sharpen your spring and summer aesthetic!


While you can’t go wrong with the classic pendant, bracelet, or earring studs, this season’s jewelry redefines traditional structure. As seen with hand bracelets, body chains, and even the glittering gold and silver flash tattoos, jewelry can truly be an extension of your body instead of a resting accessory. This season brings more delicate gold-chained style jewelry, but also bolder pieces featuring neon enamel, gems, and leather.


Vision throwback! Older 80s and 90s styles frames continue to hold popularity this season. Various designers continue to introduce round lens and aviator shapes into their lines to convey a cool, casual vibe.

In terms of bags, small crossbody styles as well as minimalistic totes and over the shoulder bags continue to reign in trend. With travelling and errand running during the summer, a functional yet chic bag is essential. However, fun statement piece bags with graphic prints are also rising in popularity in the bag world.



If you’re into sandals, this season calls for slip on styles with very little to no embellishments. Yet, if you find yourself needing a little flair, metallics and sheens are definitely in. Other open toed shoe styles also seem to be very minimalistic with chunky heels or wedges and ankle straps. Neutral sneakers are also very in trend if you need a practical, fresh look.
