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

When it comes to style, the mule shoe is a time-tested thoroughbred. The look is effortlessly chic and the slip-in, slip-out nature of the shoe is perfect for any location — the pool and the dance floor included! From easy flat slides to chunkier styles and block heels, this trend is popping up everywhere this spring.

Lace-ups

Spring is the perfect time to lace it up, and what better way to do so than with trendy, Scottish-inspired ballet flats? This is the must-have shoe for the warmer weather and there are tons of unique variations on the market. Plus, they're great for upping your denim, cropped pant and midi skirt game this season. Make sure to stay on the lookout for the wider fabric straps that wrap around the leg several times for dramatic effect or, go full-on golden gladiator in fashionable, knee-high lace-ups.

Espadrilles

Espadrilles, both flats and wedges, have elbowed their way to the front lines of spring fashion and they are the perfect new take on a classic trend. We love the cap-toe take on the classic ballet flat and the more modern platform style. Comfort never looked so great!

Mini bags

One of the biggest trends this spring is the mini bag — purses that resemble tiny, shrunken versions of some of our favorite iconic shapes. From quilted bags in bold colors to mini bucket bags and tiny messengers, this trend is an ideal way to add pop to any outfit.

Chokers

This trend has a real case of the '90s! But nonetheless, it's a hot trend for jewelry this spring. Bring back the grunge look and add a hint of edginess to your outfit with a choker. And, you can wear chokers alone or layer them with other necklaces.
