Essential Accessories Pieces your style can't live without

There are accessories and then there are essential accessories. Whilst some are satisfied with the former, we are more inclined towards the latter. Think the difference between plain white bread and a baguette from the French patisserie. DO you see the distinction? This season, be a baguette with these esential accessories.


The Bohemian Bag


It’s no secret that the boho bag is this season’s must-have shoulder piece. No longer relegated to toting around a market or to the beach, the boho bag has moved up the fashion food chain to be the esential accessory. Whether it is 70’s-inspired leather fringed satchel, a Thai Hill Tribe embroidered tote or a Moroccan gypsy clutch, it is pared perfectly with any look, from casual to evening.

The Bralet

The greatest invention since sliced bread. The bralet has transcended the category of lingerie to be one of the most essential accessories for your summer outfits. A cross between a bra and a bikini top, the bralet is designed to be seen, peek-a-boo style, under all this season’s fashion.

Low-backed tops and dresses, man-style tanks with low sides and sheer dresses that just no bra can cut it under. Neon colours are on high trend with black a close second and made from delicate lace or mesh with detailed straps, this is an accessory you can’t survive summer without.

Reflector Aviators


Think 80’s, think summer, think Baywatch. That’s right people, the reflector aviators are back and they have brought some old-school style with them. True, they have some serious competition with the wayfarer (admittedly also 80’s, summer, Baywatch) but these are this season’s essential accessory for your face, beside some fresh summer makeup.

And when we say 80’s we mean it. Bright blue, oranges, yellows and pink reflector lenses are on high trend, bringing some serious colour to summer fashion. Whether you invest in a high-end brand or grab a pair at the service station, make sure you are wearing these this summer.

The Wide-Brimmed Hat

The wide-brimmed felt hat is the essential accessory right now. You can pair it with any outfit, it can be boho or chic, it come to the rescue on those inevitable bad hair days and it protect your face from the harsh summer rays. Find your style of the wide-brim hat and make your summer fashion cred skyrocket while reaping all the benefits listed above at the same time. Oh. Yeah.
