Freshen up your look with the season’s top accessories

By Julie Davis

From Red Bank to Manasquan, stores have come alive with all things spring. Between the happily decorated windows (each delivering a feel-good seasonal message) and cheery selection of clothes, you can’t help but feel inspired—and feel tempted to buy just about everything.

The best place to start when spring fever sets in is with accessories. A new pair of shoes or a brightly colored bag is all it takes to instantly update your look, and make a wardrobe staple, like jeans and a blazer, pop with newfound energy and style.

Our well-edited selection of the season’s best accessories is a great start to get you into the spring of things. So go ahead—give into temptation.

Geneva Oversized Watch, Uphoria, 155 Markham Place, Little Silver


White Now

The watch of the moment (big, bold, and boyfriend-inspired) in the color of the moment—wear it with everything you own. The gold accents add a luxurious and feminine touch.


Metal Bar Clutch, Francesca's Collection, The Grove at Shrewsbury,

 Neon Bright

Grab hold of these clutches to give your look a little neon zing.

They’re a more subtle way to wear the electrically-charged trend, without glowing too bright.

Wimberly Cuffs, Jersey Shore Apparel , 24 Broad St., Red Bank


Chic Cuffs

Last spring’s hottest accessory is still ablaze. Wrap your wrist in any one of these hand-enameled cuffs to add a lot of color and a little prep.


Ecote Woven Pattern Tote , Urban Outfitters, 2-10 Broad St.,Red Bank

Vintage Tote

Wildly popular in the late ‘80s, the woven tote makes an impressive return thanks to its easy and effortless style. Swing this brightly colored carry-all over your shoulder to give your look a pop of color and a cool girl (or mom) vibe.
