Spring accessories will inject a little life back into your wardrobe. From new season shoes and statement clutches to gorgeous jewellery and hats, boosting your fashion credentials has never been easier.
Spring accessories can inject a little life back in your wardrobe if you’re finding it a bit lacklustre this January. The grey wintery months can make your outfits feel limited and boring, but a new bag or pair of shoes can freshen things right back up.
If you’re fed up with layering up with “sensible” clothes for the winter months, why not mix things up with some brights and prints. Throw on your usual weekend look, maybe jeans and a sweater, with a pair of Whistles sneakers in SS14’s favourite colour combination: monochrome. Or update your work look with a fun new floral Marc Jacobs rucksack.
Take a look at our Marie Claire Spring Accessories Edit for a piece that will brighten up your January for years…
