This season, accessories are going big! The '80s have been making a big return to the fashion world with simple satchels, adorned handbacks and "The Bumbag" back in stores. Meanwhile shoes, like boyish brogues, have been upgraded with innovative new shoe silhouettes.
In case you've missed it, statement jewellery is everywhere! Chunky, be-jewelled and draped over any neck, the super-sized beaded necklace adds essential polish to the simplest ensemble. There really is an accessory to suit everyone.
Aside from deciding which frock to don, there are the important details to worry about. A mussed chignon or come-hither locks? Strappy sandels or fierce stillettos? To glam up with jewels or keep it understated?
The key to wearing accessories is not to try too hard – or at least don't look like you've tried too hard. There is nothing worse than going out and meeting someone who looks pained from the effort that has gone into the "out-fit". Pulling together the perfect look is no easy task , so remember if you are going to partake keep the rest of your look simple!
If you are the type of person who is worried that this style will look unflattering, or are wondering, "Why bother, it's just another trend it will pass, is this tiresome preparation necessary?", then listen up.
Accessories, no matter how simple they are, complete any outfit. You could take it easy and add a little jewellery, drape a scarf around your neck or slip on cute shoes instead of trainers.
So embrace this trend. After all, it's an affordable, easy way to get a new look without overhauling your entire wardrobe.
