The Five Spring/Summer Accessory Trends To Invest In

Investing in a new-season accessory is a simple way to update your favourite transitional pieces for spring. While sandals and sun hats might seem a far-off necessity, a few simple updates will have you feeling ready for spring in no time. We pick our five favourites…

One: The Shoulder Grazing Earring

The shoulder-grazing earring graced catwalks from Gucci to Oscar de La Renta. For maximum effect, choose as long a pair as possible and try wearing just one.

Two: The Chain-Handle Bag

Spring/summer 2016 saw classic ladylike bags given an edge with the addition of a chain handle. Go for gunmetal grey for an industrial look or a chunky gold chain for Seventies glamour.

Three: The Backless Loafer

The backless loafer has been interpreted at every price point. Choose a pair in black and you will quickly find that once you slip them on, you'll never want to take them off.

Four: The Backpack

Burberry's girls marched down the catwalk with monogrammed backpacks, proving they need not be reserved for school children. Choose a chic all-black version for a grown-up take on the trend.

Five: The Logo Belt

It's official: logo belts are cool again. At an affordable price point, they are a great way to dip your toe into the logo trend. Wear one with your favourite high-waist jeans and a silk shirt.
