“Fashion you can buy, but style you possess. The key to style is learning who you are, which takes years. There’s no how-to road map to style. It’s about self expression and, above all, attitude.” Iris Apfel

There are plenty of bold, compelling trends that I’m sure you’re dying to try, but none of these pieces are truly wearable without a few essential basics. Summer is here and surely you want to be prepared and ready for anything, and that means dressing your outfit accordingly! Read ahead to find out what gems are bossing my wardrobe!

Straw Bags

The basket bag trend that just won’t quit and every season without fail we immediately begin adding them to our wish lists! I think these accessories are popular because they capture the essence of summer – relaxed and casual, yet chic and stylish.

Its versatility is endless, whether you are heading to the beach or to a meeting, a straw bag is the perfect accessory and adds a touch of whimsy to your look.

50 of Shades of Beige

From beige tops to fluffy beige coats, this muted shade is all kinds of chic. Anything in the realms of camel, tan, honey, and brown are major this season!
Chic, classic, trending, packed with timeless appeal and so Instagram worthy!

Hair Clips

The simplest solution to sprucing up any hair length is to add accessories! Headbands, bandanas, glitter, ribbons, or a jeweled hairpiece.

Whether adorned with pearls, punchy slogans and diamanté, littered with beads, or a simple acrylic hair pincher, hair clips are one of the most pleasantly nostalgic hair trends to have resurfaced over the last few seasons. Luckily for those of you unsure how to embark on the trend, there are strictly no rules.

Statement Earrings

One of my favourite ways to accessorize is with a pair of statement earrings. They have the power to instantly elevate an ordinary look and make it look more chic, quirky, and unique. Earrings have the power to create a sense of personality for someone who dresses simply. They have an undeniable transformative effect and it is a trend that is not hard to try out.

Essentially, statement earrings are what shoes were to Carrie Bradshaw for a generation who wear Stan Smiths.


This is officially the best time to shop summer sandals.

Easy, breezy and breathable, the humble sandal is the only shoe you need this summer.
