As the new season’s looks arrive then vanish forever, a great accessory can be your best investment. They’ll be a key part of your wardrobe year after year.
Instead of retiring a favourite outfit, give it an exciting hot-off-the runway look with a new necklace or bag. Similarly, when you add a couple of on-trend accessories, you’ll transform an everyday work outfit to a Friday night sensation.
A personal fashion stylist can help you to style your looks, but I’m going to help you try to put together some ensembles all by yourself!
Here are some statement accessories that will instantly update your look:
Oroton Belt Bag, $149
If you’ve been searching for the perfect belt bag, the hunt’s over.
Nothing could be more on-trend—and practical—than this luxurious full-leather belt bag from Oroton. With an envelope pouch plus an adorable zip-around pouch, there’s room for your essentials (phone, lippy, credit card) wherever you’re headed.
And you can experiment; wear one or both pouches to the front, or to the side.
The belt’s brass hardware suits work and play, while the cotton lining protects your phone and other items.
Witchery Pearl bracelet, $69.95
Glamour is easily achieved with this stunner. The bracelet will add a luxe touch to daywear, as well as to your evening outfits.
Witchery offers an elegant bracelet, combining silver-plated metal with luminous freshwater pearls. Each pearl is natural and unique.
Imagine yourself at Sunday brunch, where the bracelet adds a touch of whimsy to your T-shirt and jeans. Wear this anywhere, with anything.
Witchery gold layered necklace, $79.95
A new treasure: this layered necklace of precious gold links will make a statement with any outfit. Witchery’s bold Delilah necklace brings texture and style and one of this season’s biggest accessory trends.
New to layering? The necklace’s two distinctive 9K-gold-plated chains, with a classic bolt-clasp closure, allow you to experiment.
Ready for some bling? You’ll stun everyone when you wear Scanlan Theodore’s glittering diamond-crystal rhinestone belt with an evening dress—or even with jeans.
At 88.5 centimetres, it’s certain to draw all eyes and attract compliments.
Don’t forget to always wear a waist belt ON YOUR WAIST! This is the narrowest part of your waist, not towards your hips.
Husk Pearl Earrings, $229
Pearl earrings as you’ve never seen them. Delectable freshwater pearls dangle from Husk’s handmade, Chan Luu 18K-gold-plated silver earrings like bunches of grapes on the vine.
Rare and precious, these pearls bring out the glow of your complexion and go with everything from casual day wear to a simple LBD.
Oroton Baguette bag, $369
Graceful and sleek, Oroton’s Italian leather, embossed-snakeskin bag in pale quartz (light grey) goes with you everywhere. Why not avoid the classic black bag this year and choose something different, but just as versatile?
Adjust the shoulder strap as you please. Your phone’s within reach at all times via the slider pocket on the back of the bag.
Seed headband, $19.95
Have you discovered headbands?
Not only are they a trendy must-have, a headband can turn your look from sporty to sophisticated instantly. Wear Seed’s animal print headband with an updo, or with your hair down.
Sportsgirl gold choker, $24.95
Classic heavy gold chain necklaces are back. Style them your way.
Wear Sportsgirl’s chunky gold chain-link necklace on its own, or combined with other gold necklaces for a layered look.
I love to wear this style over a basic white crew neck tee or for an elevated look, wear under the collar of your favourite cotton white shirt.
