When it comes to fashion, accessories are essential because they complete the look of the outfit. But when the weather gets warmer and we start to celebrate Spring, it can be a little hard to adjust to the change.
Do we still wear jeans? What about cardigans? Is it warm enough for open toes?
Make the change a little easier by focusing on Spring accessories which can spruce up our looks during the season transition. Accessories range in a variety of things, and we don’t have to invest in all of them at once – sometimes just one striking accessory can change and make a look.
If you need some Spring fashion inspiration and are looking at incorporating accessories to make your outfits that little more wow, then read on…
Jewellery has an essential impact on clothing because it holds the power to dress down an outfit, or dress it up. Jewellery comes in a variety of styles, sizes, metals, and colours. To learn how to style various pieces, you could contact filly flair. Earring, rings, bracelets, and necklaces can turn a boring outfit into one that grabs everyone’s attention.
For example, a little black dress can be rather ordinary if it’s a simple style. However, when the right jewellery is worn with it, the dress can transform from daywear to an exciting evening out. Think about crystal drop earrings worn with a slick back ponytail and stilettos Suddenly, the black dress becomes a sophisticated evening outfit.
Make sure you don’t confuse the look by adding larger pieces of jewellery when you’ve already added one killer piece. You should have one statement piece, while the other pieces are smaller and more delicate.
Handbags are not only functional, but they are an important fashion accessory for women worldwide. Bags are an accessory which can beautifully co-ordinate with any outfit due to their range of colours, styles, sizes, textures, finishes and of course- designer brands.
Many times, women will wear a subtle outfit so that their handbag can be the focal point. This is especially so if you are lucky to own a rather standout designer brand bag.
If you’re used to wearing creams, beige and soft shades of taupe and brown, look at a caramel shade of bag, those rich browns and buttery shades. If you’re more of a denim jeans and fitted tee kinda girl and want to keep this look going into Spring, you can stick with a classic black bag but maybe look at gold finishings or rose gold details to warm up the look and add a touch of glam.
For Spring, muted greys and pastel pinks are big news, so if in doubt, these trend shades will look beautiful.
What would we do without a pair of Sunnies in Spring! Sunglasses serve a practical function, but they are also a fashion accessory. Not only are they designed to protect your eyes from harmful rays UV rays, but they are often used as a statement piece for women to express their sense of style – you can really change up your look depending on the style of sunnies you pop on.
The best tip is to choose a pair which suit your personality. Sunglasses do not go unnoticed by others, and they most definitely complete an outfit, but if you choose a funky, oversized pair which are overly trendy yet you’re more of a classic girl, it’s worth stopping to think.
Opt for classic metal rim sunglasses that are delicate on the face if you prefer smart dressing, or a more modern, classic look. Those who are quite wild and trend led can pair their eccentric outfits with more dramatic cat eye or chunky square sunglasses.
But overall, make sure they suit your face shape. There’s tonnes of posts online about the right frame shape to suit your facial shape, so take a look!
Scarves have been around for many years and are such a versatile item that women can incorporate into their outfits each season. During Autumn and winter, it’s all about those big, chunky knit thick scarves being draped around your neck in various ways.
For spring and summer, lightweight, floaty and sheer neck scarves are more ideal. I even use them to wrap around my hair bobble if my hair is in a high ponytail, or to double up as a cute headband! However, a light scarf in a fresh shade such as grey, mauve, cream or even a subtle leopard print looks beautiful around your neck when wearing work shirts or vest tops.
When you are putting together an outfit for a formal cocktail party this Spring, strongly consider a statement ring as a part of your look. For evening, nothing can bling up your hands more than a sparkling cocktail ring. Just wear the one though – too many rings will just clash together and take the shine away from the key cocktail ring.
Wearing statement rings are a great way to introduce bold colours and style to a rather formal dress or outfit. Especially if you feel your outfit is a little ‘one colour’ or ‘slightly boring’. A touch of bling to your finger will add a touch of style.
If you do choose to go for other jewellery items to wear at the same time, just remember ‘dainty does it’. A simple chain bracelet and sparking stud earrings could easily do the job!
Wrist candy is the final accessory for this round-up. Watches are functional, as they help you keep track of time, but they have fast become a key fashion item. Of course, they range in price and style, and most people think if they wear a premium designer branded watch, their look will instantly look expensive. Not always the case – you can get some stunning slimline looking watches from High St brands which equally look as beautiful
If you are at a formal event during Spring, consider a delicate watch that is made from silver, gold, or a combination of both metals. This is a classic look and adheres to the formality of your outfit and the occasion you are attending. For more casual looks, consider watches with larger faces and bands. The band can be made out of metal or leather. To keep things simple, have a variety of watches that you can switch up from time to time.
Alongside the ones mentioned above, accessories span from jewellery and scarves, to hats and hair accessories, but just remember one golden rule: don’t clash! Try to make each one stand out on it’s own and become a standalone part of your look, rather than mixing in.
