It feels more exciting than ever to get dressed this spring and summer. And as you get set to refresh your closet this season, pay special attention to standout accessories you can use to update your existing wardrobe. After all, it can feel like, at least clothing-wise, last spring and summer didn't even happen: Old favorites and new purchases sat untouched in the closet as we figured out what the heck we were doing and how to dress for work and life that happened in the same space.
