Splashing your hard earned cash can be pretty daunting and a little scary, especially when it comes to accessories! We often leave our accessories as a bit of an afterthought, choosing to focus our spending on clothing instead. Contrary to popular belief, the key to an exciting and well put together wardrobe is actually well made, basic pieces which are then enhanced through creatively selected add ons such as jewellery, shoes and bags. If you’re looking to upgrade your wardrobe’s accessories but you’re not quite sure where to start, read on. These are the designer accessories that you should look into investing in this year…
A Leather Shoulder Bag
Hunting for a bag that won’t give up on you after a few months? You need to start investing in leather. Leather is waterproof, elegant, timeless and amazingly versatile – it also wears beautifully, meaning it doesn’t only last but looks good doing it, too! Choose a shoulder bag style to work with all your outfits and occasions. Investing means buying something that’s going to last, so veer away from trend shapes and tones and opt for classic bag styles that stand the test of time. A soft neutral, brown, black or navy are your best bet for purchasing something that you’ll love forever.
Sunnies That Suit You
Of course, the title of this one could just be sunnies – but we all have sunglasses, the issue is that they usually just don’t suit our faces and we’re left wondering what on earth we were thinking when we bought them. Slow it down and take the time to find sunglasses that suit your face shape as well as your colouring. Finding the style that suits you perfectly will serve you for basically the rest of your life so it’s a great thing to do.
High Quality Sneakers
White sneakers have become so much more than a trend, they are a core style staple for every fashion forward person everywhere! You’re getting maximum stye and comfort points, so, really, these shoes are worth investing your money in. White leather sneakers go with everything and serve you in all weather – do yourself a favour and buy some immediately if you don’t have a pair already, they will change the way you dress for the better!
A Cosy Scarf
Scarves are often forgotten about, but once you get your (probably freezing) hands on a cashmere or wool style, you’re going to be thanking yourself all winter long, not to mention kicking yourself for not buying one earlier. Look for a bold pattern or bright pop of colour to bring your winter wardrobe back to life.
A silk pillowcase is going to ensure that your hair is frizz free and your skin is protected from the wrinkles and fine lines that can emerge as a result of sleeping on your front – not bad for a pillow! Investing in a set of these is such a lovely treat, a bit of self care that you can enjoy night after night.
If you’re yet to discover the sheer joy of cashmere socks, then stop what you’re doing and go grab yourself a pair. These are perfect for wearing with boots and sneakers on bitter winter days or just for chilling out during your hard earned couch sessions.
With these luxurious designer accessories in your collection, you can be sure that you’ll always look and feel as stylish (and comfortable) as possible! Start exploring to find the perfect piece to invest in.
