Working With Accessories

Accessories have always been something that I loved. They can really make an outfit especially if it is of simplistic attire. And that is something I am very familiar with.

The necklaces

My go to would have to be the 3 tiered bar necklace. Simple yet sophisticated and adds a little something to a simple outfit. For those of you necklace junkies, try the layered look. It’s another great way to create a tiered effect, particularly down a plain white T with some jeans and a leather jacket.

Rings

I feel like rings look best on me when the hands are looking a little bare or in this case, with somewhat freshly painted nails. Again, layering is something possible with rings. But in this case because of my jewellery overload, I went with a simple arrangement of 2 midi rings and a thumb ring.

Ankle candy

Despite the cringey name, I feel like ankle bracelets have drifted in and out of trends for years. And for me right now, this is a winner. With the turned up jeans, they add a little something to a strip of bear ankle. It is also a great subtle way to add some colour if that’s what you struggle with.

Earrings

Now I am partial to the plain and simple studs. I find that once you start putting different patterned earrings in etc., it can start to get a little busy on the ears. These oval shaped earrings are a little twist on the classic hoops whilst being simple and sophisticated. They won’t distract from the main outfit.

Bag

No woman is complete without a trusty handbag and mine seems to be of a work chic look but I love it. Simple and small in size but sure as hell can fit a lot in it. It is also a great base piece and colour for any outfit. But a video all about my bag and what’s inside it is coming soon

Sunglasses

I am not the biggest sunglasses wearer all year round but I sure do own a lot of them. Finding the right pair for you can be tricky but I recommend one that suits your face, of a never ageing style and in a colour that would work all year round like a black or brown. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stray from branching out. My go to style would have to be the cateye.

So although accessories can tricky to begin with, there are a multitude of ways to go about styling them and there are such a range to choose from. Perhaps an autumn accessories guide is on the table for upcoming blog posts.

Why not take a look at this post here and find out another way I like to add the “finishing touches” to an outfit.
