If you’ve already shopped your seasonal wardrobe staples yet still find your outfits are missing a little something, it probably comes down to accessorizing. You can wear the simplest outfit (think jeans and a plain sweater), and with some great accessories, it can quickly become an ultra-stylish look. This season, it’s all about accessories. And for that, we can thank the quiet luxury trend! And as simple as adding some accessories sounds, it can actually feel a little overwhelming if you don’t know where to start. So, we’ve put together a guide of accessories to shop that can easily be incorporated into your wardrobe to effortlessly upgrade your style for the upcoming months and beyond!
Shop these accessories to upgrade your current style
Statement jewellery has made an elevated comeback! Minimal jewellery will always be in style, but mix and layer it with some chunky jewellery pieces to add extra depth to your look. Whether it be with stand-out earrings, a thick chain necklace, or even a large watch – chunky jewellery pieces, in gold, silver, or both, will add interest and shine to your outfit.
As we enter the colder months, we’ve been seeing more styling of gloves! Not to be confused with knit, practical gloves and mittens that will keep your hands warm. We’re talking opera, lace, fingerless, and leather gloves, with their sole purpose being style here. Depending on their fabrication and style, gloves can either completely elevate and make an outfit more elegant, or they can add an element of edginess and contrast.
In recent fashion weeks, there’s been a surge of waist-accenting silhouettes, so it’s no surprise that statement belts have taken centre stage to go alongside the waist-defining trend. Invest in a statement belt to add to your outfits that could use some extra shaping (think blazers and knits), or simply pair with any bottoms that have loops! Not only do belts allow you to play around with shape and proportion, but they also add a stand-out detail to your outfit, helping to break up the clothing a bit.
Heeled, chunky, or sleek – loafers are the shoes of the season! They’re practical, stylish, and can be styled with practically anything and everything, making an outfit look more expensive and smart.
We know what you’re thinking. Socks are hardly an accessory, right? Wrong! Styling socks has become a major trend this season, and it’s one you may not even have to shop for! From plain white socks to more stylized versions, having your socks peaking out, especially while wearing a skirt or dress, is the moment right now.
The boots of choice this season seem to be knee-highs in all shapes and forms! We love knee-high boots for styling purposes, as simply putting on a pair instantly elevates your outfit, making it high-fashion and intentional.
Baseball and “Newsboy” caps are everywhere right now! Keep your head warm while still staying on-trend and stylish with the addition of your cap of choice! They give a subtle model-off-duty look thanks to their casual vibe.
Don’t leave your shades behind, even in the colder months! Though it isn’t as bright out anymore, the sun still shines, and let’s face it. Sunglasses just look cool. This time of year, we prefer to opt for a darker-coloured pair with thick frames.
Upgrade your style by investing (and no, this doesn’t mean it has to be designer) in a great go-to bag that will tie together all of your outfits! Yes, bag styles may have to vary slightly depending on the occasion; however, everyone should have at least one small to medium-sized purse that can go with most outfits on a day-to-day basis that carries all the essentials (phone, wallet, keys, and gloss).
