As the weather heats up and we shed our winter layers, a lot of us start to show more skin and play with accessories. We’re no longer bundled up, shapeless blobs, and fashion is on it’s way to becoming fun again. Whether it’s stacks on stacks of rings, some avant-garde sunnies, or a new bag, this is the time to play, and play we will!
Check out 10 Canadian accessory brands you’re going to want to rock this spring and summer.
Go on and take your #ootd up a level…
If you’re looking for fun, yet streamlined statement pieces, Jennybird should be your go-to. This season’s collection is all about geometric shapes and clean lines. And ICYWW, big hoop earrings are still trending hard!

An outfit just never seems complete without a stylish pair of sunnies or specs. We’re totally digging Guild’s Iris Apfel-inspired pair of sunglasses titled Royals. You’re sure to turn heads when you’re cruising down the street in these!
If the Montreal-based vegan handbag brand isn’t on your radar, then you have some catching up to do. Their simple styles never fail to catch our eye and we love the way they interpret the latest trends. Check out this fanny pack and you’ll totally get it!

So chic! ____________________________ Je vous parle de notre boîte à souhaits depuis toujours mais est-ce que vous connaissez le concept derrière? Rêve ? Écris ? Accomplis ?Visualisez vos rêves. ?Écrivez-les et gardez-les dans votre boîte à souhaits. ?Concrétisez vos ambitions… Celle dans cette photo est une de mes préférées à cause de la perle. Tellement un beau détail! ?? #carolineneron #bonnefetedesperles #happymothersday #carolineneronwishvault
Caroline Neron is a badass boss lady who never fails to impress us. Her latest collection from Toronto Women’s Fashion Week basically had us drooling! Better yet, her website is bound to be a one-stop-shop if you’re in the market for new jewellery and a new bag.
Looking for a pair of statement earrings? Then BIKO is definitely a good place to start! There are so many unique shapes and fun dangling things to choose from. Not to mention they also have some pretty great stacking bracelets if you’re building an #armparty.
Handbags, Luggage, and Accessories
When it comes to luxury, WANT Les Essentials is totally underrated. As well as being high quality, the designs remain fairly timeless, which is always a plus when you’re dropping some big bills. They also have an awesome selection of backpacks and men’s bags.
If you’ve been dying to snatch up one of those trendy ring bags, Opelle has a couple good options we have been coveting. They also have some great styles if you’re in need of a new everyday bag that is good quality, while still remaining reasonably priced.
The Montreal-based Jewellery label has some unique finds, if you’ve been on a quest to add more alternative jewellery pieces to your collection. Every item is hand carved and cast in silver, bronze, or gold; it’s basically like wearing a tiny sculpture or work of art!
Fellow Earthlings from Prince Edward Island is actually such a cool concept! The company specializes in sunglasses and eyewear, but everything is custom and made to order. After you select a shape, material, and lens, your creation comes to life and is made by hand.
This Toronto-based jewellery designer has been making some big waves in the local market. While ARMED does your standard types of jewellery (rings, bracelets etc.), what we like most about the brand are the one-of-a-kind body pieces – stunning!
