3 Affordable Ways to Instantly Update your Look

Cheap and cheerful…
 

Sometimes spending a lot to update your look is just not possible, something I know only too well these past few months. We are now about six weeks out from our new house being finished and saving mode is well and truly on! There are soooooo many things I want to buy to decorate the house once it’s ready so I have had to refrain from purchasing too many new outfits in the lead up! (For the record, it is HARD!) As a complete shopping ban may never happen for this self-confessed shopaholic, I have had to be creative in how I economically update my wardrobe while staying excited about wearing the same old things! One of the ways I have been able to update my look for less is by adding in a few new accessories. So today I thought I would share with you my top three key accessory trends..
 

This season’s hottest accessory trend that just won’t quit. The choker. There are just so many styles and variations around at the moment that it is hard not to find one you love. As a bit of throwback to my 90’s grunge loving self, I just can’t get enough!

 SHOP CHOKERS:

 

I have mentioned previously that statement earrings are having a moment. This is such a great way to add instant flair to even the simplest of outfits. Great for adding that extra touch to your trusty LBD for a night out or even dressing up a casual jeans and tee look!

SHOP EARRINGS:

 

My favourite thing about the bandana? Mmm hmmm.. you got it! It can be worn so many different ways! As a bag accessory, a neck tie or choker, a wrist cuff or even on the ankle!  For such an inexpensive item it really earns it’s keep!

    I haven’t given in to the chocker trend yet, it reminds me of my teenage years, which feels weird! But I do love statement earrings! I usually go with statement necklaces though, they’re my favorite!
