Summer is the perfect time to play with all kinds of fun accessories since there are just so many types of occasions to dress for! Is there a wedding coming up? A beach day? A picnic in the park? The types of accessories you choose for each one of these events will be completely different, so you’re free to experiment with styles throughout the season. Since accessories are generally pretty inexpensive, you can also pack a solid bang for your buck with several options to spice up your summer wardrobe. Read on to see the seven accessories I’ve picked that are sure to be on all of this season’s must-have accessory lists.

1

Retro Sunnies
This pair of cat-eye sunglasses from Mango would be the perfect complement to any beach attire. The pop of red makes them unique from the many neutral shades on the market right now and adds just the right amount of colour to any summer outfit.

2

Espadrilles
Think of espadrilles as your summer alternative to sneakers! Either in a wedge heel or a flat, these warm-weather shoes are super comfortable for walking around and keeping you looking stylish.

3Statement Earrings
With this trend, you can really find a pair out there as wild as your imagination will take you. With beads, fringe, feathers or metals, a dramatic pair of attention-grabbing earrings makes a bold statement this summer.

4

Chic Sun Hat
A fashionable accessory that also protects your skin from the sun is a double win for me. The bigger the brim the better, as some of this season’s latest versions are supersized for ultimate style.

 

5

Woven Bag
Take a page out of classic French Girl style and choose a simple woven bag for all your beach essentials. You can also opt to keep your valuables safe inside a smaller pouch and use it as an alternative to your day to day handbag.

6

Logo Slides
Plastic slides are no longer just dedicated to beachside and poolside fashion. They add a relaxed, cool-girl vibe to any outfit this summer, and are just about as comfortable as you can get without leaving the house in slippers.

7

A multipurpose Scarf
Tie one on your purse, in your hair or around your wrist – the options are endless! A silk scarf in a bright print can liven up even a simple look and make it look effortlessly pulled together.

Fashion Jobs – From Desk to Dazzling: The Do’s and Don’t’s of Office Party Dressing

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs2b77e8e6c23d5fc97452a64b435e0f67It’s that time of year again- the office holiday party! Some love it, some may hate it but nevertheless it’s a great chance to showcase your personal style, especially if you work in an office that usually has a very drab dress code. However, there are some things you need to consider before showing up to the party, to ensure you look your best and keep the respect of your coworkers (and your boss!).

Consider the venue of your holiday party. If it’s at a casual restaurant, there’s no need to go over the top with your outfit. On the other hand, if it’s a large formal evening affair, make sure you put effort into how you look!

Stay modest! You may want to wear something more revealing than the frumpy suit you wear every other regular day, but it’s not worth risking your reputation at work or losing respect. You can still look glamourous without baring it all.

Remain true to your personal style. Don’t bother wearing something you feel doesn’t suit you or you’re not comfortable in because it will only prevent you from having fun at the party. Don’t try to be something you’re not just because you want to impress others, you probably already impress them enough in the workplace!

Be festive! No, this doesn’t mean you have to wear head to toe red and green, but it’s always fun to add a bit of holiday spirit to an outfit for a party. It can be as simple as wearing something with sparkle or sporting a red lip.

Most of all, enjoy yourself! The whole point of an office party is for people to relax, mingle and have fun, it’s not a wardrobe competition. As long as you pick something appropriate and you feel good in, it’ll be a party to remember.

Here are some great options for holiday office party wear:

 




1. Closet Skater Dress, $117, available at ASOS

2. Zara Silver Pleated Skirt, $49

3. Deletta Garden Guise Top, US $88, available at Anthropologie

4. Banana Republic Metallic Blazer, $198

5. Express Black and White Striped Pants, $79

6. Chelsea28 Metallic Surplice Blouse, $95, available at Nordstrom
