Accessorising this Summer: Subtlety or Stand-out?


When it comes to accessorising any outfit we have been taught that less is more right? That has always been the golden rule. Coco Chanel said "Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off".

However, social media platforms such as Instagram have re-painted this fashion rule in favour of stand-out accessories. Here we see bum bags, visors, micro sunglasses, flower-power headbands at the forefront of this summers' fashion wave. Alongside, chunky sandals, Vogues' 80's sunnies and Instagram's barely there shades.
