LET THE ACCESSORIES DO THE TALKING

Thursday, 5 April 2018








We all have those days where we're at a bit of a loss of what to wear, right?

Often on those days, you can bet on the fact that I'm 100% going to be opting for the incredibly original and groundbreaking combo of jeans and a t-shirt, or the cold weather edition; jeans and a jumper.

Sometimes we end up getting a little bored; I know that by day 4 of jeans and a tee I feel as though I haven't actually changed clothes in a while. It can be repetitive and monotonous, and I don't know about you, but my style and fashion are one area of my life that I categorically do NOT want to become monotonous and boring (save that for my daily routine and future day job lol). So I have a couple of tips for those of you who are often at a loss when it comes to ways of making our outfits more interesting, without going out to buy a whole new wardrobe.

See, it's all in the accessories, folks. A few 'on trend' accessories are all you need to jazz up just about any outfit. Which I hope to prove in the outfit featured in this post.

So, say you're having a bad hair day, are looking to conceal your identity or simply want to keep your head warm, throw on a hat. Instantly, you've elevated your outfit to #trendy status with one quick step. 

Secondly, for all you fellow lazy gals out there, then this one is also a lazy dressing 101 tip. You could be wearing a basic af outfit, but add a pair of wacky '90s trend sunglasses and you've just reached #treschic status in one quick and easy step. Incidentally, sunglasses are also a very good accessory option for a range of situations. i.e. if you're A.) pretending you're famous or practicing your 'hiding from paparazzi' face in preparation for when you are actually famous, B.) to disguise the fact that you stayed up til 5am watching RuPaul's Drag Race and therefore only got 2 hours of sleep from the world, or C.) Actually want to shield your eyes from the sun on account of your eye health.

A third option is to add a pop of colour (cliche expression I know, but it does the job so perfectly!) to your outfit, as I've done here. We all know that I'm a big fan of the ol' monochrome aesthetic, but recently I've been getting very bored with just how neutral my outfits are. Enter this gorgeous Radley bag; the perfect accessory to liven up my very two toned outfit. There's currently a beautiful selection of Radley bags in some wonderful bright colours, such as this berry, as well as a teal, and sherbet pink, all perfect for adding a 'pop of colour' to an outfit, without being too 'out there'.

If you're like me, you're probably someone who is usually rather wary in investing in pieces that aren't black. When I'm buying something that's got a slightly bigger price tag, I always reason that I should get black, because it's the most 'practical' and will go with all my outfits - for some reason we're so scared of brights! But we shouldn't be! I often find that brights can actually often be just as wearable as neutrals, in that they can be paired with far more colours than we think. Take this bag in the berry shade, for instance, (which, incidentally, is now on sale!). I think it'll look great not only with whites and blacks, but with brown, camel shades, pinks, navy, forest greens and mustards, whilst the classic style means I'll be able to wear it season after season.

So to re-cap, here we have the baker boy hat, the 'pop of colour' bag, and some interesting footwear with the white boots, which I think all together totally elevate this outfit. And ta-dahhh! That's how I jazz up my simple outfits, lovelies! I hope you found this post interesting.  Let me know in the comments below how you make your simple outfits more interesting!

Until next time,
Bisous <3
