Accessories 101

It’s almost time to say goodbye to the heavy woollen scarves and to bring out the bling again for Spring!

Accessories can make such a difference to your look! They can take a simple (boring, dare I say) outfit to a WOW outfit in no time. Accessories are a great way to add your own touch, your own sense of style to classic, easy-to-wear looks. They can also help dictate how dressed up (or dressed down) you want to be. By simply changing shoes from flats to heels, you can go from office to dinner, or beach to bar.

So let’s look at 3 simple ways to use the amazing EziBuy accessories collection to change some outfits from dressed down, to dressed up.

 

JEANS AND BLAZER

Combine a wardrobe staple, with a classic shape and a pair of jeans and a blazer can pretty much take you anywhere!

Trainers, some bold jewellery and a cross-body bag dress it down for the weekend. Heels and some bling dress it right up for Friday Night Drinks.

Stylist tip: Cuff the sleeves of your blazer – it not only exposes the slimmest part of your arm (your wrist) but it makes the blazer feel less corporate.

The Little Black Dress

So hopefully we all have at least one of these in our wardrobe (some of us may have a few more!) but you only need one! It can be one of the most versatile pieces in your whole wardrobe. Think of it as a black canvas – what ever you add to it, will dictate what look you are going for.

Trainers with a dress is one of my favourite weekend looks (especially as it gets warmer!) There are heaps of fun options our at the moment in different colours and prints so get creative.
At the same time, nothing is easier to throw on for a work day. Add a heel you can walk in, a classy necklace (nothing too over the top), and a stylish bag you can fit your laptop in. Workday style done!

THE OUTFIT: Capture belted dress

THE ACCESSORIES (Weekend): Next denim jacket | Silver pull on sneakers | Next floral sequin scarf

THE ACCESSORIES (Work): Nina layer necklace | Next structured winged tote | Next leather block heels in blue

The Printed Pants

Now these are definitely one of the hottest looks for Spring – and a great excuse to get out of the jeans or black pants! Dress them up for a Girl’s Night Out, or use them as party of a stylish, smart-casual look for that birthday dinner or Sunday brunch you’ve got coming up.

Stylist tip: if your printed pants are too long or you want to wear them with a flat shoe – roll the hem up a few times just to expose a little bit of ankle – it will make the overall look less weighted and heavy on your lower half.
