From the perfect carry-all clutch in a hot shade to a bright, bold scarf that will elevate any outfit, our Style Expert Jacqui Stafford hand picks the only accessories you’ll need this spring.
The Gladiator Heel
Freshen up your wardrobe with a high-heeled, lace-up gladiator sandal. Go for a metallic or snakeskin print—they’ll work with everything. And no need to spend a fortune: This pair from Nine West looks much more expensive than it is.
Nine West Karoler Gladiator Sandal, $119
The Carry-All Clutch
The clutch is not just for evening anymore—it’s all about the oversized day clutch. I’m obsessed with this super-luxe one from GiGi New York. Roomy enough to hold your iPad, lipstick, cash and phone—you’re good to go from day ’til night.
GiGi New York All In One Embossed Python Clutch in Magenta, $105
The Bright Scarf
A bright, bold scarf is the easiest way to make any outfit look more stylish. Get one from Theodora & Callum—one of my all-time favorite scarf brands—to dial up the style ante of your weekend jeans and tee.
Theodora & Callum Bangalore Scarf, $175
The Mirrored Sunglasses
I love a mirrored lens because it hides all sins. Let’s face it: We’re either up too early or out too late. One of my new favorite brands this season is New York-based Illesteva. This unique pink reflective lens and tortoise print combo adds a youthful vibrancy to even the most dog-tired, caffeine-deprived complexion.
Illesteva Leonard Olive With Pink Mirrored Lenses, $177
The Pastel Necklace
Mint, lilac, buttercup and cotton candy were spotted on practically every New York Fashion Week runway. A great way to try this trend without looking like an Easter egg is with accessories like this mint choker. Insider style tip: Wear this necklace with a monochromatic white dress to really make it stand out.
Juliet & Company Serenite Necklace, $66
