Accessories are a lot of fun to wear; they are like the cherry on top of an outfit!

Jewellery and bags don’t just have to be an added part of your wardrobe they can be the main focus of your complete look to make the ultimate statement of style. And the good news is they fit you for a lifetime! So it is important to invest in a few key good quality pieces.

Here are some simple styling tips to accessorize everyday:

Keep it Simple – The best thing about statement accessories is that it only takes ONE piece to make your whole outfit stand out.

Whether you opt to wear bold piece of jewellery or a bright handbag, is all about how simple you keep everything else.

Try and focus on one part of your body to wear the item and if it’s a necklace watch that it enhances the neckline of your top or dress.

Get colourful – Spring & Summer is the perfect time to wear colour, go forth and be bold! Consider taking cues from your own spring/summer wardrobe, and if you like fashion keep an eye out for upcoming trends and colours.

Mix it up on shapes, styles and sizes – The more outlandish and unique the jewellery or bag is, the better it is when it comes to making a statement!

Be adventurous and try different sizes and styles of accessories! I like to pick jewellery with different textures and shapes. Look at the size of your fingers, wrists, neckline and ears when picking out jewellery to try on and also the length of your torso for handbags.

Match to compliment your outfit – Your jewellery or bag doesn’t have to be the same colour as your outfit, but it is important that it goes well with your complete look. Just remember to wear what you like and be confident in your own personal style!

Caring for your accessories – When you are not using your accessories, in particular silver jewellery and leather, it is important to store them properly and use the right cleaning tools to keep them looking new and shiny.
