The best part about accessories is that they have the power to totally transform an outfit, even if you’re still wearing the jeans you’ve hung onto since high school. A brand new bag, a bright suede platform or a choker necklace (that maybe reminds you of those high school days too) are really what bring freshness to your wardrobe and announce that you’re right on track with the runways. With so many options to choose from this season, we’ve helped narrow down your choices to the trends that will matter most over the next few months. Sporty sandals? Chain handle bags? Exaggerated earrings? Check, check, check! We’re also into round shapes (Mansur Gavriel’s top handle is a must-have), chokers, wicker bags and block heels.

Nothing beats shopping once the weather finally turns balmy and the stores are finally brimming, so get out there and do some damage.

Here’s our top spring 2016 accessory trends guide.
