Have you ever had one of those days when even though you’ve paired all your fave pieces, your outfit still isn’t what you want it to be? If you can’t afford, or simply don’t want to rejig your wardrobe, there’s a simple fix. Accessories!
Updating your finishing touches to the latest trending accessories is the easiest way to reinvent and elevate looks you already love because don’t we all need a little TLC at times?
Blair Waldorf is a fashion icon for a reason, ladies, and if you look closely it has more to do with her accessories than her outfit. This trend appeals to both the minimalist and the maximalist. If you like to keep it simple, a velvet, padded headband will instantly elevate your look. However, if you’re going all out, a bit of bling never hurt anyone. For the Blair-approved look, pair your crispest white shirt and face denim with the ‘Never Been Better Headband In Wine And Gold’.
Hair clips have been everywhere for a while now, and let me tell you this, they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. You can add them to an already cute hairstyle a la Bella Hadid, or you can use them as to add a little something extra to hair that hasn’t been styled. Blend this trend with another by opting for a pearl barrette or a resin-look clip.
Don’t worry, we’re not talking about the pukka shell anklet all your crushes wore in 2002. We’re talking about the dainty little chains you wear like a chic bracelet, but you know, on your foot. Obviously, this look works best when you’re blessed with warmer weather.
The 90s called, they want you to know they had scrunchies first. Scrunchies are the easiest way to add a little oomph to an outfit that’s falling flat. Better yet, they make hair that really needs a wash look a little less mission-critical. Take styling cues from Gigi Hadid and colour-match your scrunchie with your top for a five-minute fix that looks like you actually spent time on your outfit. If you want your look refined even further, a scrunchie with ribbons attached is all you need.
Whether you’re living your best life on a summer holiday or you’re in desperate need of wearable sunshine, seashell accessories are the season’s must-have. While nothing screams California cool more than seashore-inspired hoops, layer different styles of gold shells together for a chic-summery look.
