Visual Merchandiser and Accessories
One part of getting ready we love here at Visual Merchandiser is adding accessories to bring an outfit together. One trend we particularly like is wearing a really simple outfit and letting the accessories do the talking. We’ve recently been loving fashionistas who have been wearing plain black dresses (a great example is a midi dress) and really piling on the jewellery. A great way to add that extra to add outfit is to wear oversized earrings and bracelets that add pops of colour and different textures. We particularly like rose gold oversized chunky jewellery added to a plain black dress. Also, as spring turns into summer, we also love the impact a great pair of sunglasses can add to an outfit. Unusual shaped sunglasses can add an edgy vibe to an outfit; whereas, classic shapes can add a glamorous feel to a simple outfit.
As the team at Visual Merchandiser loves going to gigs and festivals in the summer, we know how important it is to add accessories to a simple festival outfit in order to create a polished ‘boho look’. To achieve a laid back festival look, wear a plain white t shirt and simple shorts but add plenty of accessories. Adding tribal accessories will add a laid back bohemian feel. A woven handbag to carry all your festival essentials and drop down feather earrings add to a hippy vibe. Add several bangles and you’re ready to go.
A trend which comes around year after year is the floral trend. Floral accessories will add a pop of colour to any plain outfit. Accessories such as floral headbands can instantly transform your thrown together outfit of a plain white t shirt and denim shorts into a completed outfit that screams ‘hippy chick’.
If festivals aren’t your thing and you are into dressing up and hitting the town, then white accessories will spruce up any outfit. As monochrome is a big trend right now, a plain black dress can be contrasted with white accessories and be instantly transformed. We think a flowing maxi dress with wedges will look fantastic contrasted with an oversized white envelope clutch. Another trend which is similar to the ‘white accessory’ trend is having sorbet accessories. Sorbet accessories are perfect for adding a pale wash of colour to an outfit without appearing too ‘in your face’. Sorbet colours work perfectly with plain white outfits and their pastel tones evoke memories of summer. Even a wash of pastel nail varnish can add complexity to a plain white outfit.
