It is my firm belief that any outfit can be completely transformed and improved by the perfect accessories. Better still, some of my favourite accessories are very inexpensive yet extremely stylish and versatile. And so, I’ve managed to come up with my three most essential accessories for the Spring and Summer seasons.
My first essential accessory is a pair of on-trend Sunglasses. I recently made a trip down to Brighton, and struck gold at the market when I found this pair of round vintage glasses for just £8. Although they have no top bar, they do have a slightly longer bridge joining together the tinted lenses – a design that I really love. I would definitely recommend purchasing a pair of sunglasses with a similar style to these, as it’s a style that’s current and very popular. What’s more, their minimal aesthetic makes them super easy to match up with any outfit. I managed to find some very similar alternatives, from Topman and River Island.
Next up has got to be a high quality watch, such as this one I was lucky enough to be sent from LordTimePieces. It’s the Solitude Black Blue watch from their Solitude collection, and I’m a massive fan of the minimal design – one that I think represents my style. It’s fairly lightweight, which is a factor I look for and is ideal for me as I really dislike watches that feel heavy and uncomfortable. I’m not going into too much detail on the watch right now, as I’ll have a full review blog post coming out very soon. If you’re interested in picking up a watch from LordTimePieces, use code ‘BLAND10‘ at checkout to get 10% off all purchases.
If you’re looking to elevate your style with something inexpensive, then some jewellery is your best bet. This could include bracelets, necklaces and rings. To start with, I’ve been obsessively wearing the Plain Black Ring with Etching from boohooMAN as it’s basic colour and design makes it versatile for different types of outfits. Likewise, the Silver Look Twist Pendant Necklace from Topman is very minimal yet stylish and is perfect paired up with a plain tee.
Topman are also great for doing a selection of bracelets together, which allows you to mix and match depending on your outfit. The ones I have feature earthy tones and are mostly a wood material. Although they’re not available online, they are still able to purchase in-store. Finally, the gun metal chain-link bracelet from boohooMAN is very easy to match alongside a watch. But don’t forget to use code ‘BLANDBYNAME50‘ at the boohooMAN checkout for 50% off everything.
