Spring is right around the corner, soon enough it will be time to toss the winter warmers and go shopping for flowing dresses and sandals. There are plenty of other ways to get into the spring-summer vibe when it comes to fashion, and that’s with accessories! It's the perfect way to perk up your ensembles for the warmer climate and showcase your style.
Adding a statement necklace to an outfit is a great way to instantly dress it up. Put a statement necklace over your summer dress with a blazer and some heels, and you can transform an outfit from day to night. Put it on with some flat ankle boots, and you have a smart/ casual look that’s perfect for an evening at the cinema or lunch with friends. The addition of a statement necklace can make all the difference! Go with a cute pastel shade for spring and something more vibrant for summer
If you’re wearing a relatively plain outfit, maybe a plain white summer dress or just some jeans and a t-shirt, a great way to bring in some colour and interest is with a brightly hued bag. Perhaps go for anything from a large satchel to a small cross-body bag, depending on what you’re doing that day. Brightly coloured and patterned bucket bags have been seen on the runway and are set to be a huge trend in 2017, so you’re sure to see the style filter down to the high street over the coming weeks.
A spring and summer essential! They block out damaging UV light preventing crow’s feet and look very chic and trendy too. Shop around for a gorgeous pair that flatters your face shape and work well with your facial proportions. Buying in a store is much better than just guessing and buying online- get it wrong and they can look very odd!
Not part of your outfit as such, but let’s face it most of us have our phone glued to our hand the majority of the day! As well as being practical and protecting your beloved device, phone cases are ideal for showcasing your personality and style. You could go with something super chic and on trend like rose gold or marble. You could use a photo, or find a royalty free image you love online and have something custom printed. Companies like Put a Case on Me offer this. Or you could find something that just looks spring or summer inspired, whether it’s a sweet floral print or a pastel shade.
Your nails are another great way to show off your personality and bring in some spring/ summer colour without using clothes. Mint, baby pink, lavender, and peach are all beautiful for spring. For summer why not try something really fun and vibrant- hot pink, electric yellow and bright orange will give your outfit a pop of colour.
