As the cornerstone to any great look, accessories magpie Laura Byrnes, of @LaurasLittleLocket, gives us her edit of this summers must have outfit makers and explains how they can refresh your wardrobe in an instant.
I love accessories so much, they can dress an outfit up or down and totally transform a look in an instant. For me, a bag always finishes off an outfit, so I love to have an amazing selection of bags to complete my looks with. Shoes are also super important as this is the item that is going to dress your outfit up or down, give it a relaxed day time look or a more evening going out vibe. I then love to throw jewellery and extra accessories like scrunchies to add those extra little details!
I’m obsessed with linen at the moment, it’s the ultimate summer fabric, I love the versatility of a matching set, you can wear them together, or as separates! A wicker bag is a must for the summer and I’ve paired this look with some cream raffia platforms which are so incredibly comfy, coordinating the accessories to the tones of my outfit really help to complete the neutral summery vibe whilst adding some texture too, which I love.
Texture is key for sandals this summer, from rafia heels and straps, rubber soles, to suedette soft-to-the-touch finishes, all in an array of colours and prints, these 4 styles will cover me for the whole of summer. Wedges and platforms are back and a great way to bring some added height when I feel I need it. Mules are perfect as a smart summer alternative, great with a dress or jeans when I want to feel more polished, and these animal print slides will add a nice twist to my daytime looks.
I never like to go too overboard with jewellery and accessories, instead i'll choose one or two finishing touches that bring the whole look together without taking over it. Scrunchies are a lovely way add some girly softness to an outfit. I either wear in my hair or around my wrist like a corsage, match with a tonal colour and it will bring your whole look together.
