  • Accessories - What's your Style Profile?

    Guest PostWhatever your personal style, or what you have to wear on a day-to-day basis, one of the best ways to express who you are is through your accessories. There are so many diverse looks to experiment with within the realm of accessories that the possibilities can be endless no matter what you wear. Below are just a few of the different styles that can be spotted today.

    Kooky

    Kooky girls are always on the lookout for the weird and wonderful in accessories: unexpected objects as pendants, piles of mismatching bracelets, charms and strange shapes and materials. Sometimes it's about pieces that have other meanings, jewellery that can represent part of their personality or an individual interest. And sometimes it's just about finding something gorgeous to wear that bucks a trend or differs from the norm.

    Classic

    Classic girls have a chic, neat sense of style that works anytime and anywhere. Decoration is kept to a minimum - no stacked chains or jangling bracelets need apply - but with a level of taste that is timeless and undeniable. The classic ideal is to invest in beautiful accessories that will last a lifetime; special pieces in precious metals that can be passed down the generations and will never go out of style.

    Vintage

    Vintage girls have one eye on the past and the other on the fashion scene. Taking inspiration from decades gone before, they combine thrift finds and family heirlooms with looks which are constantly being recreated for the current season. From 1940s florals to the retro glam of the 50s and 60s, vintage lovers will always have a look to suit their favourite era at the same time as keeping up to date with modern trends.

    Glamorous

    Glamorous girls love to rock the Hollywood red-carpet look of high-end bling. Nothing can have too much sparkle and Glamorous girls have the ability to dress up any outfit instantly with gorgeous twinkly and colourful accessories. Chandelier earrings and crystals galore are essentials in the glamorous jewellery box, to make sure an outfit is never less than completely fabulous.

    Statement

    Statement girls love to let their jewellery to speak for itself and will always use their accessories as the main focus of an outfit. Big shapes, tribal influences and high colour are the order of the day and the look carries seamlessly through from day to night. Statement girls know that bold accessories will always be the quickest and most effective way to update any outfit.

  • Trend: Push the Boat Out - Nautical Jewellery and Accessories

    We're loving this season's nautical trend here at Accessories Online. It's a theme that generally pops up each season, and for SS10 it's the fashion favourite once again. So what do you wear with your breton stripes? Here's our guide on how to accessorize the look. We also have a trend specific nautical jewellery category where we've hand picked our favourites for you.

    Rope look accessories are key this season, making these chunky gold Butler and Wilson rope twist earrings perfect. They're also clip ons, for the piercing-phobics among you:

    Gold jewellery is an essential. Layered gold necklaces look particularly fabulous and set the look off perfectly. Below you can see our Dogeared Unlocked necklaces layered and teamed up with stacked gold bracelets. Chunky gold jewellery is also huge this summer, something that designer Angie Gooderham does particularly well.

    How about a starfish to suggest the nautical look without being too obvious? This pretty necklace by Hawaii based designer Catherine Weitzman has been cast from a real starfish:

    And lastly, the obligatory anchor which Tatty Devine have done particularly well this season:

    The key is keeping it simple - don't go overboard, or the look becomes too staged and uniform-like. Pick a few key pieces and team them together to complete the look, but don't exhaust it.
