I hope you are having a lovely weekend. We are slowly but surely heading into the warmer months (please let there be an actual Summer this year!) and that means it is time to change up the wardrobe. Recently I have been introduced to the online platform Spring that features more premium brands to shop so I compiled a "Spring Wish List" showing my top five accessoires to style yourself with now that we have entered the season. All items featured are from Spring's accessories store.
Sunglasses: The first thing that comes to mind when I think about the sun that is finally starting to peek through is "Yes, time to wear my sunnies again!" Was it your first pick as well? Although I was born in December I simply cannot handle the cold. So when the sun comes out my mood is immediately turned up. I love wearing sunglasses as it adds something extra to whatever you are wearing. I love it as a style piece and I have a serious obsession because I find myself buying several new ones each year.
Belts: If all turns out wel, Spring means the start of a rise in temperature so say goodbye to those thick coats, jeans, and leggings and welcome the the skirts and shorts (with tights). Though jeans are practical, nice, and comfortable (if you are lucky enough to find the right ones am I right or am I right - it can be a pain) shorts are usually my go to. What better way to accessorize those lovely pairs of shorts with a staple belt. These heavily buckled ones in particular really add that edge to the look that I like.
Rings: What about those scarves to bundle up in? Or those gloves you have been wearing and keeping in your bag just in case it gets too chilly to cycle to work or wait on the train. That's me. Yes, we can soon leave those behind as well. You might be thinking, jewelry can be worn all-year round. Yes, that is true. However, knowing I do not have to worry about my necklaces getting stuck in my scarf or gloves being a bit difficult to put on because of the rings I am wearing makes me want to wear them more. Plus they are more noticeable without all the layering of fabric to stay warm. Of all of the jewelry out there, rings are probably my favourite and I am a massive fan of stacking them up or combining them with midi ones.
Watches: Some people might cover this under jewelry, but I wanted to give them their own spot on the list. Recently, I have really been into wearing watches. For a long time I viewed a watch as a necessity to keep track of time when I was at work and therefore could not be bothered with how it would look, but to be honest I have grown to love wearing them as an accessory. There are also so many models to choose from to fit to your liking. At first I thought why would I want a chunky one, but if it is the right one you will not even feel it on your wrist. Though that is not always a good thing...I often find myself reaching for my phone to check the time instead of looking at my watch because it just wears too comfortably.
Collars & Bows: Last but not least I just have to feature these items and because they have a similar function I put these together. As soon as I saw them on the website I was like "Yes." Both add just an extra piece of textile that can completely transform your style whilst at the same time giving you that extra bit of clothing for this in-between weather situation. A very clever and great way to amp up your look.
And there you have it, my wish list of top five accessories for Spring. What are your top picks? Let me know in the comments below.
