Do you feel like you want to shake up your look? When it comes to doing something a little differently cost can inevitably become an issue.
Oh, is it summer yet? If so, the perpetual hunt for the perfect accessories can officially start. I’m sure you’re all searching for the things you will recklessly spend your cash on, but who are we to judge. Forget about bags this time, because I know you have plenty of them, and get ready to splurge on some hot pieces of accessories. Here are some of the lust-worthy items for the upcoming season, and trust me, you will end up craving for more.
The bigger the hoop, the bigger the... Oh no, we won't say that out loud. They were once considered trashy and unattractive to be seen on a woman, but look how times have changed since then. Golden or silver, large or small, matte or glossy, these ear candies should never leave once they enter your jewellery box. Whatever colour you choose, they go perfectly with any hairstyle, especially with a tousled ponytail and loose waves. These circular stunners are easy to pair with any outfit as well, and you can also wear them with your favourite bathing suit. Beach goddess alert! Whether you match them with sneakers or a fancy dress, you can’t go wrong. If you haven't got a pair of them yet, it's time for a mini addition.
Skinny Frames Are The New Stunna Shades!
The 90's are back, people, and the teeny-tiny frames are taking center stage! From street style fashionistas to runway models, these retro pieces made a huge comeback. It seems like Kourtney Kardashian, Bella Hadid and Rihanna can literally put their trademark on them, since they barely take them off. After all, It's not about protecting your eyes from the sun, but it's all for the aesthetics. Although these types of sunnies don't flatter everybody's face shape, you can always choose sunglasses you won't get mocked for, such as round or square-shaped ones. But if you are determined and don’t care about what everybody else think, then there is no shape you can't pull off. Besides, everything is ugly until Rihanna decides it's not!
Less Is More, Always
Statement necklaces will get you noticed, but subtle necklaces even more. There's something about these accessories that will effortlessly complete your whole look. For ladies who adore the minimalistic charm, golden chain necklaces and subtle, layered chokers are the way to go. Perfect for any occasion, these discreet pieces bring out your feminine and classy side.
Straw Hats Are Amazingly Stylish
Straw hats with a contrasting ribbon never went out of style. You can wear them during the day, but most importantly, they keep your head safe at the beach. If you are one of those girls who aren't ashamed to speak their minds but you'd rather have your hat speak instead, then embroidered slogan hats should be your staple head accessories for this season. Oversized hats are trending too, and they are all over Instagram.
Diamonds are a girl's best friend? I'd rather say it's a nice watch. These are the most common and the most wearable hand accessories ever, and if you don't own at least one, then we're calling the fashion cops. It's 2018, which means you can wear the same watch with a baggy tracksuit and a glamorous dress. Stylish Daniel Wellington watches made their way into fashion, and Instagram influencers went crazy over them. Who wouldn't? Cuff and anchor bracelets are a perfect addition to this watch and trust me, no one really cares whether they are gold or silver because rules don't apply anymore.
Bandana Oh Na Na
Bandanas are the easiest hair accessories ever and they look super cute too. You can wear them with different hairstyles, such as voluminous ponytails and messy buns. Since it's summer and our wardrobes are getting more colorful, opt for the floral, red, yellow or white ones. For the beauties who’d like to bring the 60's back, these are super cheap and light-weight too. So make your hair big, and show the world your inner Brigitte Bardot.
So, ready for a little shopping spree therapy? If the answer is yes, look through this list again and spoil yourself with some new fashion updates.

This is arguably one of the most versatile piece of clothing you can bring. A slip dress can be worn various ways. Throw it on and pair with comfy sandals for a day of sightseeing, with a sweater for a lovely dinner, or even over your swimsuit for some cover up for an evening stroll on the beach.

While the floral print trend has been in full bloom for as long as we can remember, it is still one of the best ways to freshen up your wardrobe and get ready for the summer season. Fabulous florals combined with simple, minimalist accessories, will never go out of style.
If you are looking for a more edgy look, try mixing florals with other prints and adding bold accessories such as statement jewellery or oversized sunglasses.

If you prefer darker colors like black, gray and navy, because of the slimming effect, it is time to embrace color. So step out of your comfort zone and incorporate color pieces into your outfits.
Prints that flatter your figure
Do not over layer, even if you feel you need just one more layer to hide your shape, don’t. Keep it light, comfy and cute.
Do not be afraid of trends, so if the trend is off-the-shoulder, then wear it, nothing is stopping you.
Show off your best bits, so if it is your legs then flaunt it!!
Espadrilles and cool sunglasses are the epitome of summer so pairing the two together just make sense. The espadrilles will give you that casual and relaxed vibe while the color popping Adidas Original sunglasses will give you that cool street vibe look. Pick your pair for a rocking summer!!!
What is better than a pair of denim shorts and a pair of espadrilles. With so many different styles and designs of denim shorts you can really wear a pair every day. I love the one featured from Glamorous especially the 1940’s fringe detail, giving it a touch of vintage glam, pair it with a bodysuit, black espadrilles and your purple color popping Adidas Original sunglasses for a sexy street glam look.
The mini skirt, BOOM, show off your legs!! Keep it playful with a character cropped t-shirt, patched denim mini skirt and lace up espadrilles, paired with the purple tinted sunglasses for a subtle hint of sexy cool.
Classis chic, striped t-shirt and white mini, for a relaxed monochrome look paired with Blue sunnies for a hint of color.
Espadrilles and a mini dress, a girly combo, playful and flirty. I picked the white laser cut-out, off the shoulder dress because the white will show off your glowing tan and the wedge espadrille will give you the extra height, showing off your legs. The color framed sunglasses from the Color Pop Adidas Original collection will just make it all pop.
Trousers are great and we love dresses but skirts have a certain ladylike chic to them and you can never go wrong with a well styled skirt ensemble. Here at three looks to inspire you to fall in love with skirts.
Unexpected Hues and Prints
Bury the black and gray and go for a statement making skirt for the office a perfect option for a dull Monday.
Break up a printed midi skirt with neutral separates and accent your outfit with complementing accessories.
Go short, for a lunch date, a shorter hemline will make your legs look longer.
Considering the length of your skirt, the right shoe can make or break your outfit. So go for heels with interesting details.
A striped midi, for those casual weekends, vertical lines are always flattering as they give off the illusion of a longer line.
Try and keep your ensemble as simple as possible using your accessories to highlight the shade of your skirt.
