Micro trends offer a kind of cheat sheet for the new season. An of-the-moment earring, a key handbag style or a fresh hair accessory can elevate a simple uniform of jeans and a T-shirt to a completely current, well put-together ensemble. Here are eight items that will update your look instantly.
A scarf can liven up the simplest of outfits. This tribal-inspired print is perfect for summer, adding colour and texture to the plainest of tops. Plus, there’s something terribly chic about a woman who wears a scarf well.
Everyone from Gwyneth Paltrow to the stars of New York Fashion Week have been spotted sporting pom-poms in one guise or another. I love this pom-pom leather bracelet from Finery London. It offers colour, texture and a touch of whimsy too.
Chokers came neck and neck with drop earrings as the must-have accessory of the season. This version from Zara offers two necklaces in one – a pink leather choker and a pretty pendant.
Designers were fit to be tied this season as bows, knots and lace-up detailing adorned belts, bags and shoes. Keep it simple with this contemporary tie-up leather belt from Cos.
Embellished heels will show you’ve got your feet very firmly in this season. I like the contrast of a sturdy heel with sparkles and sequins, so these River Island sandals are perfect.
The street style set had plenty of fun with their accessories this season, sporting graphic prints, irreverent logos and quirky illustrations on T-shirts, handbags and jackets. Test out the trend with this cute logo handbag from Les Petits Joueurs.
