The How-to Accessorise Guide S/S 2018

fashion accessories

Whether you’re a dedicated minimalist or extravagant maximalist; we all know the warm fuzzy feeling that comes after adding your ‘final touch’ to an outfit, knowing you’ve just taken it to a whole other level.

From boho rings that make you feel at one with the world to statement shoes that garner ‘oooh’s’ and ‘ahhh’s‘ from colleagues in the kitchen – accessories are an essential part of the fashion bible and a sure-fire way to elevate any look. So, just in time, here are a few of our handpicked favourites for spring 2018.



Chandelier Earrings are in (try saying that three times at speed…) and we’re loving them. We were all for the bright tassels and feathers in season’s passed, so to know that the world has upgraded further to sparkling sophistication fills us, and our lobes, with joy. These Monica Vader Siren Chandelier Earrings are firmly on the list.

Hold me closer, tiny glasses…

The runways (and Kanye, apparently) have confirmed it; tiny sunglasses are winning, come rain or shine. This spring and summer, be sure to put those oversized’s in storage (for your grandchildren to discover after their inevitable revival) and take it back to the 90’s with some Lolita Cat Eyes from Le Specs. And if £75 seems a little steep for a style that you’re not yet totally in love with, ASOS has a great range from £12. Take that Kimye.

Fantastic Fringe

The movement, the layers, the colours – the fringe trend is one that elevates even the most standard of accessories (and clothes for that matter). This WAI WAI Petite Balaio woven-rattan bag manages to implement the fringe-effect with it’s gorgeous tassel, as well as the growing trend for rope-styled fashion AND woven accessories. Tick, tick, tick.

The Cowgirl Arrival

That’s right – cowgirl boots are back (did they ever really leave?) and there are some incredible styles, from Calvin Klein to Topshop (pictured) to choose from. Don these, your Wai Wai bag, teeny tiny sunglasses and those extravagant chandelier earrings and you’ll be really for the catwalk. Or a trip to the pub. Whatever.
