Greetings, friends, and welcome back to Spring Trends Week! Okay, so I totally made that up, but that’s what I’m calling this week here on the blog. Today I rounded up some of the top accessory trends for spring 2022, and they’re all available at Nordstrom.
Adding a few on-trend accessories to your closet each season is probably the easiest way to update your wardrobe, and they can really pack a punch. After all, as the wise Clairee once said, The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize.
Bold necklaces are making a comeback, including collar necklaces, pearls, and chunky chain necklaces.
This chain link necklace by Stella & Ruby is a great way to add a focal point to a simple outfit. I love how the textured chain links are joined by smaller links for added dimension.
Pearls are another big trend across all jewelry categories this spring, and layered looks are still in style, but they’re getting chunkier.
It has a good balance of modern and classic, and both pieces have a good weight to them without being overpowering. Best of all, these necklaces are adjustable so you can get the lengths exactly how you want them. I also I added a pair of chunky gold hoops.
I have a whole post coming on handbag trends, but one that I’m loving right now is the baguette bag. This bag style gives me all those Lorelai Gilmore vibes.
I discovered this Coach Tabby 26 when I was shopping in-store last weekend, and I literally stopped in my tracks to take a second look.
It’s such a gorgeous pebbled leather with elegant brushed gold hardware, and I like how it gives a nod to the baguette bag trend while maintaining a timeless appeal.
This bag comes with two removable straps — a shorter shoulder strap and longer, adjustable crossbody strap. You can use either one or leave both attached so you have all the options at the ready.
I was also really impressed with the interior of this bag. It’s lined with a luxurious microsuede fabric, and it has several interior pockets for organization. Plus, the flap has a magnetic closure for ease of use.
While bold and bright colors in handbags are definitely trending this spring, so are white and ivory, and I love the versatility of this chalk color.
Speaking of bold and bright, decided to incorporate that trend into my footwear for this outfit.
These ballet flats are a more feminine alternative to the menswear-inspired loafers and mules that I often wear this time of year. The square toe keeps them fresh and current, and the leather is soft, so they’re very comfortable.
They do run a bit narrow, so you may want to size up if you tend to run in between sizes. I’m wearing my usual size 8.
I like these square toe ballet flats so much, I got them in both the Lotus Green and Deep Orchid. I actually tried the green with this outfit, but I felt a bit like an Easter egg, ha!
I tend to be a less is more kind of girl, but the power of a few carefully chosen accessories is undeniable.
Which of these accessory trends is getting you excited for spring fashion?
