Earth Accessories for Earth Day

April 22, 2019


Don't ask me why, but Earth Day is one of my favorite days. I love a whole day dedicated to our home and the essence of doing good it encourages. Today was such a beautiful day outside, and it inspired me to tie my love for the outdoors and fashion together.

That being said, earth tones and accessories are a HUGE trend this spring. For colors, sage green has been a big topic. When shopping in stores, sage is usually a more muted pale green. For those of you who feel like you can't wear this color, go for a deeper tone like the Free People dress I linked below. Although this color falls into my seasons, I always add a little bit of lipstick and highlighter just to feel less washed out. Colors that look good with this are other earth tones such as tans or mauve. If you wanted a little pop, I'd go for a yellow, light blue, peach, or a rust color.

Some earthy materials for accessories that have been spotted lately are shells, woods, and straw materials. For me personally, I love subtle ways to incorporate different trends into my outfits until I get use to styling and pairing them. Having a quick an easy hair piece adds the perfect amount of rustic without looking crazy. I've been loving fun hair accessories lately and have this one on my packing list for my next big vacation!

If you're into more of the seashell movement, then I suggest doing little pieces of jewelry to incorporate this look. This way, you don't have to splurge an obscene amount of money on a trend that tends to come and go.
