Getting your accessories right is almost as important as putting together the right outfit. A bad choice when it comes to accessories can instantly ruin a look that you’ve spent ages putting together. From shoes to bags and vintage jewellery, here’s a few top tips when it comes to accessorising with style:
Sunglasses are Always a Yes
Bags under your eyes, wanting to look cool and mysterious, or it’s genuinely sunny, sunglasses are the ultimate all-purpose accessory. No other accessory has the power to transform your outfit from average to cool than a pair of well-chosen sunnies. Be sure to shop around for a frame and style that suits you, whether it’s big square frames Victoria Beckham style or round glasses a la Alexa Chung, once you’ve find the right frame for your face you’ve found the perfect accessory to last a lifetime.
Add a Little Sparkle
There’s nothing like a touch of glitter to instantly update your outfit and add a bit of glamour. There’s no need to go all out bling, unless you want to of course. You can subtly add sparkle with some jewellery from F Hinds. Whether you go for some small sparkly earrings, a bracelet or finish off your look with a necklace is up to you.
Choose the Right Bag
Getting your bag right is a mix of what’s practical and what looks good. From novelty bags to clutches, side bags and totes, first think about the essentials you need to carry and what style of bag will go better with your outfit. Small side bags and cute clutches are better for going out at night, as you’ll just need to carry your phone, purse and a lipstick. Daytime bags tend to be roomier, with totes and side bags being the perfect shopping companion. Side bags with a chain strap look particularly chic and add a fashion edge to any outfit.
When it comes to shoes, it’s all about the look you’re going for. Heels can instantly take a jeans and t-shirt look from daytime to night-time in no time, loafers can smarter up a casual outfit instantly and ballet flats can make a smart look more casual. It’s easier to make bold accessory choices when it comes to shoes so don’t be afraid to try out different prints and textures.
With all these top tips to follow you’ll be able to build the perfect outfit with all the chicest accessories in no time, prepare yourself for the compliments.
