Fashion Accessories To Complete Your Outfit


How Fashion Accessories Can Elevate Your Look

You’ve built a wardrobe of quality essentials and even a few statement pieces to boot, but you find yourself feeling stuck when it comes to daily style. Resist the impulse to go on an online shopping bender and learn to love the art of accessorising. As we shift toward more sustainable shopping habits, embracing the transformative power of fashion accessories is the best way to refresh your style without buying a whole new wardrobe.

Here are some basic fashion accessories that never fail to elevate a look.

The Scarf

A simple silk scarf is so multipurpose, it’s basically three accessories in one. Wrap a scarf around the handle of your handbag to add some colour or a print to your outfit. Incorporate it into your up-do, tie it around your neck or give your look some 1950s glamour and rock a headscarf.

Statement Sunglasses

Eclectic eyewear is a surefire way to amp up any ensemble. A dramatic cat eye adds a retro and chic twist to an outfit. Skinny sunnies, tinted shades and acid bright frames all add something drastically different to a look, so get experimenting! This season is all about pops of pastel.

Woven Anything

Summer is the season for woven accessories. Make like Jane Birkin and give all your outfits a feminine and playful twist with a woven basket bag, or even a straw hat.


A fashion accessory does more than simply add colour, embellishment or texture to an outfit. A fashion accessory that can transform a silhouette entirely is the belt. Embrace your curves with a cinched waist belt and match the buckle hardware to your jewellery for added effect. Western details are big right now, as are corset-belts.

Stylish Headwear

Berets and sailor caps have become a huge streetwear staple in the last few years due to their ability to turn a simple outfit into so much more. Sun protection is essential here in Aus, so what better excuse to wear a cute topper? Look cool and keep cool with a wide brim fedora or lean into the bucket hat trend for a more casual vibe.
