Accessorize Your Mom for Mother’s Day

Spring has sprung in the Triad, and what better way to celebrate than with some springtime accessories: just in time for Mother’s Day! So what’s on trend this spring? Look below for some great gift ideas to remind mom of how special she is to you.

Statement Earrings: These aren’t your everyday studs! Statement earrings are big, showy, and a lot of fun. But how do you keep them from looking over the top? Tone down everything around them. This is especially pertinent for other jewelry; if your earrings are the centerpiece of your outfit, skip the necklace and bracelet. The same goes for your clothes; statement earrings are a perfect addition for a little black dress, where the dress won’t take attention away from the earrings.

Flats: Flats, thank heavens, are back in style. Mom doesn’t need to murder her feet in stilettos, and neither do you. Mules, cut-outs, gladiators? Pastels, brights, or just plain black? All options are available this season. Embrace the comfort and the style!

Chokers: Last seen in the ‘90s, this versatile accessory is making a comeback for 2015. Some chokers are true to their name, with a dog-collar look for the extremely fashion-forward. But others are lighter and more subtle, with styles that imitate tattoos or make use of ribbons, leather cords, or nautical rope. Like longer necklaces, they come in a variety of styles, from casual to red-carpet. Which style is best for your mom?

Handbags: A woman can never have too many handbags: especially when designers keep coming out with such enticing ones! This spring, the bucket bag gets an update with cutouts, exotic leathers, and interesting ties. A bucket bag holds all your mom’s stuff, so it’s always a good bet. If mom (or you) needs a smaller bag, think floral this spring; clutches and other small bags are in bloom! A new shape is also in style: the vertical bag. From casual to evening, the clean lines of this rectangular bag add style to any outfit.
