This week, we're shopping for the must-have accessories to pair with our outfits and we won't lie to ya Gwen, this lot are TIDY.
We’re talking gemstone rings, headbands to disguise a bad hair day and monogrammed baguette bags, the gang’s all here and they have our full undivided attention.
Be still our beating hearts – these are the pieces we’re adding to our wish list (our Monzo account just doesn’t know it yet).
I’ll never been a huge accessories enthusiast, I’m more inclined to buy a dress or knitwear over the bag or the jewellery but I do love a simple gold ring here and there. The Daphine Oli ring is right up my street so that’s on my wish list this month.
I’m still not over bucket hats, despite the fact I look like Vera whenever I try to pull one off – one more stab at the trend can’t hurt, can it? If in doubt, I’ll opt for a headband instead. The knotted / padded ones are great for disguising a bad hair day.
I’ve never been much of a jewellery girl. I have a few staple necklaces/earrings I wear on a daily basis but I am all about the hair accessories. I wear some kind of clip or scrunchie on a daily basis and even though I have been told I look like a 5 year old, I love them. I would wear hats but I’m yet to find one that comfortably fits my head.
I’m also not that adventurous with shoes/bags. I have a few staples that I’ll occasionally switch up but you can’t beat classic vans and a multi-purpose backpack to contain all my hair accessories.
My must have accessories are quite basic, I’m not a massive jewellery fanatic and never go for anything to out there. I love sticking to dainty chain bracelets, I normally wear a mix of gold and silver bracelets (controversial I know). I have recently been loving hi top converse, they just look so good with everything. Lastly, another accessory must have for me is a little black cross body bag, perfect for any outfit or occasion.
When it comes to accessories, I’m definitely a delicate jewellery girl. I love stacking, whether that’s rings or necklaces, the more the merrier I say. These are the brands I wear most of, and some of these I actually already own and wear a lot already so felt it was worth popping them in here! There are also a few i’ve got my beady eye on. When it comes to jewellery, I tend to spend a bit more money on something I know will last me a lot longer and feel more special!
I LOVE accessories and Jewellery (who doesn’t!?) but i’m terrible at remembering to add them to an outfit. I’m convinced this is because I haven’t figured out a clever way of storing what I do own so I never really see any of it to change things up. This means I pretty much just wear the same 4 rings and 2 necklaces every single day. That being said, one thing that I have gravitated towards and experimented a bit more over the last 6 months is headbands, I love them so much i actually wore one on my wedding day. Whether they’re chunky and statement or delicate and dainty i think they can really complete a look, plus on a bad hair day they disguise a multitude of sins!
I’m such a big jewellery gal I’ve decided to dedicate my accessories must have to lots of delicate and beautiful pieces from Carrie Elizabeth. I LOVE this brand, even my engagement ring is CE. I’ve gone for this little moon and stars vibe for a necklace and a bracelet with a couple of rings that I think would look fab. If you’re looking to invest in some lovely bits or need to buy a gift for a friend I can’t recommend Carrie Elizabeth enough!
Accessories for me are everything. Give me a statement boot or earring any day of the week and that’s me sorted. For some reason my picks are very green this week- pistachio is particularly in at the moment so that may have something to do with it. Missoma is my go-to for lust worthy jewellery- I only have one necklace from them but if money was no object I’d have a collection of gold jewels enough to attract magpies far and wide.
For bags, sunnies and boots I’ve stuck to the Shrek theme, and to be honest I’m loving how coordinated my ASOS saved basket is at the moment.
I’m typically a low-key accessories gal, and like to buy pieces from ethical brands so I know the materials have been sustainably sourced or have benefitted the makers livelihoods. I usually wear dainty earrings day-to-day, and these Moon and Star earrings have been on my wish list for a long time after buying some for a friend. I also love some comfy trainers, and this VEJA pair has a chunkier sole than my other pair which is great for height and a bouncy step in your walk!
