The Power of Accessories

Accessorising can dress up any outfit, changing it up from day wear to night wear. Back in the days, I always thought accessories were only based around jewellery. No, there are so many things we wear and use on a day-to-day basis to pair with our outfits and make them look the best!

Here are my picks!

P R I N T E D   S C A R F


Zara £25.99

Reversible scarves have taken over in the accessories section this season! I got a little out of control when they came out in all these different colours- I ended up purchasing a little too many. This one is definitely one of my favourites, its super soft, oversized and has a lovely chic dogtooth print on one side and mixed grey on the other. I love pairing mine with leather jackets and long duster coats.

New Look (Assorted) £1.99-£3.99

Stacking up midi rings is a great way to add a little edge to an outfit (or hands?). There is no right or wrong way to wear them, the great thing about these is you can create your own look with as many or as little rings as you like. However, they should look balanced and not OTT. They are available in different colours (rose gold, bronze, silver, black) from your usual high street stores.

River Island £12.00

I was on the hunt for a faux fur Cossack hat but the ones I tried were way too big so I went for the alternative. These headbands are a perfect winter accessory to keep my ears and head warm. They are also great for keeping my hair in place when it's windy. They are available in different colours to match the colour of your hair if you prefer. I like to pair my headband with a parka, my hair out and a bold lippy.

Topshop £35.00

A statement black bag can transform any outfit, however big or small. A bag not only represents the outfit but it also represents you! It should be something durable, something that can be easily paired with any outfit and something that people talk about (I'm sure you've had the 'omg where is that bag from!' convo so many times). I love the gold detailing on this one, and it even comes with a handy strap.

Ernest Jones (gift)

Just like bags, oversized watches are great for dressing up an outfit. Although big watches look quite masculine, since the big craze over Michael Kors Rose Gold watch, the word masculine went straight out the window. I love the pinky/salmon face on this one, very feminine and chic (can you tell I'm a bit obsessed with the word chic?). Anyways, I like wearing mine loose so it falls on my wrist like a bracelet. 

C L A S S I C   B R A C E L E T


Swarovski (gift)

I never really was a bracelet fan but I was converted straight away when I was given this. I'm not quite sure if it was the Swarovski name or the rose gold obsession I was going through at the time. Although I love pairing this up with a plain jane dress and fancy nails, I do get worried that a diamond may fall out so I don't show it off as much as I should be.. silly paranoia!

Topshop £22.00

There's not much to say about gloves. Gloves are just gloves right? I do love detailing and there are some nice laser cut ones available in Topshop now. This pair has a warm fleece lining and a cuffed wrist. They are a perfect fit for my small hands and are touch screen friendly, so no taking off to use my phone in the cold/rain- yay!

Urban Outfitters £18.00

People wear shades during any season here in London. It's always good to have a classic pair handy, the sun might come out of nowhere, especially when you're in the car! Shades suit everyone and there are so many different styles and colours to match yourself with. The wayfarer shape is my favourite and obviously the gold detailing like this one.

Primark £4.00

Statement necklaces have been trending for quite a while now. I see it in every high street store ranging from £2-£35 (maybe more, maybe less). Like bags and watches it can transform any outfit. A statement necklace is available in different shapes, colours, sizes depending on preference. I love pairing mine with plain tops, dresses and jumpers. For an even more statement look, you can stack up the different chain length necklaces.
