THE STYLIST DIARIES | Accessorise for Summer

Our Westfield Stylist Sara breaks down accessorising into Summer

Accessories are a great way to start bringing a summer feel to an outfit. Make those winter options feel light and work their way into the new season.

Comfort meets style with shoes like espadrilles which come in wedges and flatforms. Heels remain low with kitten and block shapes. Flats are pointed and decorated for the ultimate style statement. Scarves can be added to bag handles or ponytails and clips adorn everyone’s hair.

Bags are small and versatile - hand held and cross body styles reign supreme in colours and textures. Rich autumn tones mix with summer brights and prints while woven elements blending baskets and leathers are complemented with handles and embellishments in gold, tortoiseshell and wood.

Gold is the metal of choice for jewellery this coming season. Pieces with sentiment, such as coins, talismans and starlings, are mixed with seasonal extras like pearls, shells and ties to create an effortless style to adorn the neck. Earrings remain the accessory of choice - be it large and oversized in textured metals, wood and shapes from nature or delicate pieces layered. Delicate earmuffs in stones and metals allow everyone to embrace this layered look.

Some of the best items this season come from the places you least expect – so get searching!
