5 Spring 2022 Accessory Trends That Will Elevate your Style

Accessories can make or break an outfit, and no-one understands that better than Jenn Loyd, Fashion Stylist for NBC & CBS, a Personal Fashion Stylist, Lifestyle Expert, and founder of Lobe Love, a bespoke accessory company.

Over the years, Jenn has styled hundreds of women, and is passionate about helping women look and feel their best, and uncover their own unique, personal style. When it comes styling a look, Jenn pays attention to details with accessories.

“When I’m not helping women win their freedom from Outfit Overwhelm into Clothing Confident, you’ll find me creating and celebrating a life that is functional AND fun”, says Jenn.

Jenn was interviewed on Spring 2022 accessory trends, and we’d love to share her insight with you:

1. What colorways are you seeing for Spring?

There are going to be so many dreamy colors: Periwinkle, soft lilac, soft tan, and my personal favorite – hot pink.  A gorgeous infusion of color!

2. Do you foresee all-white ensembles featuring? What does this mean for accessories?

I  love all white ensembles because you can pair them with any color statement. An all-white ensemble will instantly pop with colorful accessories or you can keep your statement pieces all white for a clean, sophisticated look.

3. With the abundance of crochet predicted, what accessories do you have in mind to 

complement this look? 

I would love to pair crochet looks with jewels… we have some coming in spring that will work exceptionally well with crochet. The juxtaposition of organic wool with glittering stones works well.

4. Any gingham accessories for Spring? If so, what colorways?

Gingham will be a fun pattern this season and I would wear it in the colors for spring. I’m gravitating towards soft lilac and hot pink for earrings and headbands in particular.

5.  With sexy bra tops making a return, what earrings will best compliment this look?

Depending on the detailing of the bra, I would pair them with some fringe earrings or jewel with fringe earrings. The minimalist bra look allows for a ‘wow’ earring to fill up the space.

6. Your top embellishments for Spring earrings?

I am big on jewels this Spring in soft tan, purple and blues. Chains and pearls will be making a statement as well and adorn your ears perfectly.

Leather shorts are my jam!  When you see them, your mind automatically drifts back to the 80’s but they’re a versatile pair of bottoms.

They can be worn in the winter or summer months.  Leather shorts look amazing when attending a special event.  Especially if you’re trying to dress chic with the ability to move around and be social with ease.

The leather shorts I’m wearing were purchased from Victoria Secret; here’s a comparable pair on Amazon.  A few easy ways to wear leather shorts include pairing them with tanks, t-shirts, or sweaters.

Take the look up a notch by wearing with textured tights or brightly colored heels.
