We love our basics. Nothing can beat a cute LBD or black jeans with a gorgeous jumper or a perfect white shirt. However, sometimes sticking to the pretty-but-safe playbook can make a gal feel a tad dull. Enter stage left quirky accessories and a world of promise and excitement. These fun and gorgeous accessories will give your outfit the equivalent of a fashion drip. You’re going to stand out in the best possible way.

Two words: glitter socks.
