Accentuate with accessories

Investing in a robust collection of accessories is the easiest and most cost-efficient way to add variation to your wardrobe. Bigger is better when it comes to the complementary pieces this season, but style experts advise to mix with more simplistic ensembles to create a put-together look.

Jewels in turquoise, blue and purple are big on hair accessories from bands to hair ties and jazzed-up clips. The pieces can even serve as jewelry in most pieces, so be careful not to overdo it. Same goes with the punk rock-tastic stud trend. Keep it clean and simple by using a select number of studs or spikes to add spice to straight hair or a tamed ponytail.
