How Fashion Accessories Will 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.
Follow our tips and add these basic fashion accessories that never fail to elevate a look.
Simply Scarf It
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.
Make a Spectacle
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.
Fashion accessories do 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. Choose Western details for a more casual look or wider corset-style for a bolder look.
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. Some years back Carrie Bickmore helped give the humble beanie renewed popularity with her Beanies for Brain Cancer campaign. But there are loads more hat styles to try this autumn and winter. While baseball caps are a summer staple, the hat that’s enjoying the most popularity all year round is the humble bucket hat.
You might not be the go big or go home type, but however you choose to wear your jewellery, there’s no doubt they can give your outfit an eye-catching lift. Long earrings, oversized neckpieces, even wrist chains have all come of age to be bolder and more daring than previously thought possible. Whether you opt for these big brash pieces or more sublte adornments, a single piece can refresh your entire look in an instant.
