Bold Move
With warmer weather comes a change of pace. Switch your routine from layering clothes to piling on color. First layer, B Brian Atwood’s Braganca sandals, $450.

Last, slide on Alexis Bittar’s The Lucite Collection bracelets. From top to bottom: Wanderlust Dust in neon yellow, $195. Wanderlust with white coral, $195. Skinny tapered in neon yellow, $65. All available at Jildor in Cedarhurst.

Understated Elegance
It doesn’t take a grand gesture to make a fashion statement. Effortless style is easy to accomplish and often the most envied. Dolce Vita Pavo, $179, is a staple wedge that will accent any laid-back spring wardrobe. Christopher Kon Allison woven leather clutch, $215, will become your grab and go all season long. Top it all off with the perfect amount of adornment, like Paige Novick’s Bianca Bling medallion necklace, $425. All available at Nahla & Co. in Cold Spring Harbor.

B&W & Color All over
Designers sent black and white looks stomping down the spring runways. We’ve seen the shades coupled up before but the addition of modern shapes and interesting hues bring the trend up to speed this time around. French Connection Nina leather strap sandals, $120, and Chanel oversized sunglasses, $290, bring the right amount of b&w to any outfit. Balance your fashion savvy accessories with a punch of color. Michael Kors Selma satchel, $358, in emerald green will do the trick. All available at Bloomingdale’s in Walt Whitman Mall.

Brighter Days
Neon-hued accessories are taking spring by storm. Proceed with caution. It’s easy to go from eye pleasing glow to harsh fluorescent. Jimmy Choo Crown citrine patent leather peep toe, $695, freshens up the classic style by turning up the tone. Tote Stella McCartney’s Falabella, $895, salmon fold over clutch with polished chain trim. The two shades complement without blinding bystanders. All available at Saks Fifth Avenue in Walt Whitman Mall.
