5 must have accessories this Spring!

Fashion, Tips--Tricks

October 2nd, 2013 by Adore

Now that Spring is here lets talk about the 5 must have accessories this season.

The wide-brimmed hat

Fact: nobody does airport chic better than Rosie Huntington Whiteley. And the statuesque model never hits the tarmac without one of her signature coloured felt hats. But this style piece is so much more versatile than that. Leave the classic straw fedora for your next tropical vacay and up your travel, brunch and cocktail outfits with this on-trend trans-seasonal number.


The Isabel Marant Sandals

Every style blogger is sporting a pair of these as spring/summer’s answer to queen of the “It shoe” Isabel Marant’s legendary wedge sneakers. You know the ones… But for those of us not wanting to splash mortgage repayments on (essentially) glorified flip-flops, look for footwear pieces in similar styles of half gladiator-esque height, studded finishes and wooden heels.


Layered Pendants

This season, necklaces are making a statement in a different way. Chunky, full neckpieces are being retired in favour of delicate chains and romantic pendants. Don’t let them take the backseat to your outfit though. Stock up and pile up on silver and gold pendant chains that layer up and finish at all different points down the décolletage.

The box carry-all

Statement bags are taking a new direction this season – it’s all about the box. Keep your day bag angular and structured; the boxed look is all about clean lines. After dark sees clutches shrink and tiny little Perspex box purses rule the bar.


Spring’s all about shedding the layer and showing some skin without resorting to high summer’s uniform of cut offs and caftans. Enter the espadrille. Easy to slide on and off, hides an over-due pedi job and keeps feet breathable when the temps start to heat up.
