April has been all about cleaning up and paring down. We’ve shown you how to clean out your closet, hack your storage, and build your capsule wardrobe. But with the weather warming up, it’s hard not to give in to the bright, exciting seasonal trends we’re seeing around us. So, instead of loading your wardrobe up with one-season wears, follow the rule of “one”: one piece of jewelry, one bag, one pair of shoes… and so on. We’re bringing you the best of the best: the one item in each category you need to stay with the trend. Buy your faves to make your capsule wardrobe feel current. Minimal living meets maximum style.
1. The Bamboo Bag
This bamboo bag has us dreaming of walking down a boardwalk barefoot, off to a beach picnic, or shopping in a sweet boutique town. For being a trendy piece, this bag still manages to be somewhat practical, large enough to carry your essentials, with an easy to carry handle.
Vintga Women’s Bamboo Handbag $59 via Amazon
2. The Slim Sunglass
If you haven’t tried the mini sunglasses trend, now’s the time – their moment is still going strong. Sleek and ultra cool, these are fashion that still functions (barely).
Slim Cat Eye Sunglasses $29.50 via Zara
3. The Shoulder-Grazing Tassel
This bright, bold, statement earring screams summer. These earrings may be large, but there is something effortless about the swing of the tassels that feels light as air. To follow the trend, find a pair that lightly (or almost) touches your shoulder for maximum effect.
4. The Transparent Shoe
The color of the moment is clear… literally. From transparent bags to jewelry to now shoes, the trend is see-through. We love this rain bootie – since rain boots tend to be more fun anyway, might as well dive fully into this trend. Can’t you see yourself puddle hopping in these?

5. The Tropical Hair Wrap
Feel like you’re on vacation every day with this hairband/scarf. Tie it in your hair, around your neck, or even on the handle of your bag for a pop of the tropical wherever you are.
Scarf/Hairband $9.99 via H&M
6. The Gender Bending Cap
From news caps to fiddler caps, to fisherman hats, this hat is back with a vengeance. If you love a cap to finish off any of your looks, this mustard one is all you’ll need.
Brixton Ashland Fisherman Cap $42 via Nordstrom
