Bold Move

Spring/Summer ’16 accessories preview.

Forget the minimalist, pared-down bows and bangles of seasons past. This spring, it’s all about over-the-top accessories. As Jamara Ghalayini, owner of Pumpkinheads in Brentwood, CA, puts it, “anything that really stands out,” will earn a spot on her store’s shelves. Gleaning inspiration from a range of exotic locales—from the outer limits of space to the great depths of the sea—children’s designers imbue an array of styling staples, from necklaces to neckties, with an otherworldly quality. On that note, look for exotic textures, arresting colors and mesmerizing finishes to make mirrored sunglasses and holographic backpacks best bets. Ready to make your accessories section shine? We asked experts from across the industry to share the top trends for Spring ’16.
