5 Spring Fashion Trends You Need to Know

We are SO excited for spring! Fresh colors, fun accents, flowy skirts and scarves are just around the corner. Update your wardrobe just in time for patio season with these trends to help you shop.

DELICATE GOLD SPARKLES

Simple, classic styles get a fun flair of geometric accents and sparkle this season. Choose pieces with unique shapes, personalized letters, and thin bands and chains for a delicate look that pairs with all outfits.

PRETTY PASTELS

It's no surprise that spring shopping means pastels! Add a little edge to the softness by mixing in neon colors with a traditional pastel palette. 

TASSELS

Beautiful yarns and threads are popping up everywhere! Bracelets, necklaces, and earrings with softly textured threads add a unique juxtaposition to the hard stones and metals.

BRIGHT STATEMENT PIECES

Mix up that all-black work wardrobe with some fun pops of color that still say professional. Add a bright yellow clutch or saturated statement necklace to add flair to any monochromatic ensemble.

ONE-OF-A-KIND

One-of-a-kind pieces are always in style, but even more so this season we see handmade and locally made items that are especially unique. We love statement pieces designed by local artists both as gifts and as an update to your new spring wardrobe.

Michelle Starbuck, a featured local designer, has created these signature pieces especially for our VIP Event on March 30. Browse her beautiful creations and more during the event. We will have more featured local products, appetizers and sangria, and free mini-classes of jewelry design or watercolor painting! Register here for the event. We hope to see you there!

Shop Alert: Product Highlights

Though spring has yet to sprung, we here at OSB are ready. The shop is looking extra flush with new products and loads of cute gifts options and stylish accessories. Who doesn't deserve a special treat after all? And with a our online store brimming with items, you don't even have to leave the comfort of your own home to check out all the new goodies. Happy browsing!

Witchy Gems

It's no surprise gemstones, rose quartz and druzy ear studs are at the top of our list when it comes to sparkling accessories. These pieces combine earth mother tendencies with a touch of glam and, if we say so ourselves, make for a show-stopping statement look. Layer on the rocks or pick one bold piece. Either way, channeling your inner mystic never looked so good!

With multiple stones and hues to choose from, we dare you not to collect all the druzy sets!

With a touch of blue, this sleek and sophisticated stone pendant is sure to amp up the drama when paired with any outfit. Add an edgy touch to a chunky knit or layer atop a trapeze dress and denim jacket to preview this year's music festival style.

Stick 'em Up!

Jazz up your school supplies or work notebooks with some perfectly springy stickers. Oh-so twee, we can't help but use these everywhere, seriously!

Burn Baby Burn

Who doesn't love a new candle? Though the season generally calls for fresh florals, this time around we decided to feature some muskier, richer scents - it is still February after all. Amber and smoke lay a warm and comforting vibe throughout any home while we adore the sea salt and sage combo: the quickest way to feel like you are in southern France, on the shore in a striped boatneck top and black capris. Plans for Spring Break anyone?!

A Hair Do!

These cute headband shortcuts come in three colors and we can't help but drool over the different ways to style hair with them. Topknot your mane and toss one of these on to hold back bangs or go for a sweeter princess style with a half pony and loose tendrils. No matter what, there is sure to be several videos and how-tos on Pinterest to help navigate which way to rock the twist scarf headband.

Starry Knee-Highs

After months of wearing big boots, heavy wool socks and getting feet down and dirty with the winter blues, a new pair of socks is just the ticket to feeling fresh and lively again. We have added quite a few fun and funky pairs but shoot for the stars with these constellation knee-highs.

Totes

If you have taken to the coloring book craze like we have - you know you want to! - then you know a special tote or carrier for your colored pencil and supplies is a necessity. Grab a large accessory bag like this one with the Eiffel Tower across the front to feel artsy yet organized and keep all your coloring tools in tip-top shape. Not into the coloring trend? A tote is a tote and who doesn't need another bag to carry all the day's necessities around in?!

Brick and Mortar at 2124 W. Division

Though online shopping in pajamas is hard to beat - maybe with a mimosa on your bedstand too! - don't forget to check out One Strange Bird's brick and mortar location. With additional products to peruse, Alliance Bakery down the street and Wixter Market next door, an official shopping day might be just what the doctor ordered.

'Til next time!
