Spring has finally arrived, which means it's time to break out the warm-weather wardrobe. And this season, one outfit essential is receiving all the buzz: fun and colorful accessories!
Chassie Post from Gilt.com stopped by Studio 1A to share a few of the hottest trends for the spring.
Mules & slides
