Summer is finally trickling in which means it’s time to pull together some foolproof warm-weather outfits. Sure, it’s easy to throw on a sundress and cute sandals underfoot, but it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd in a more simple outfit. Enter: accessories.

Whether it’s glamming up an otherwise ‘boring’ outfit or refreshing your day-to-day looks, you don’t have to spend money on a whole new wardrobe; a simple accessory like a dainty shell necklace, or even a pearl embellished hair clip, can instantly take your look from 0 to 100 with minimal effort.

From strappy sandals to tiny sunglasses and hair accessories, keep your spring summer #OOTD game feeling fresh with these six swoon-worthy accessories.

Incase you haven’t noticed yet, Instagram’s ~fashun~ scene has been flooded with barely there heels. The minimalist yet stylish silhouette shows more foot than actual shoe, which firstly elongates your legs (win!) and secondly instantly draws more attention to what your wearing. Oh-so simple, but oh-so divine, and perfect for showing off that new sundress. Carrie Bradshaw would be proud.

Itty-bitty sunglasses have been seen on the likes of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, supermodel sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, and every fashionista on Instagram, proving that the ‘90s shrunken style isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. Opt for a chic tinted pair to dress up a basic white T-shirt and jeans, or an ultra skinny cat-eye teamed with an all-black outfit for a Matrix-inspired moment.

Another Noughties resurgence that has cemented itself as a new must-have, and will transport you straight back to secondary school, is hair accessories. Whether it’s a pearl embellished pin, rhinestone hair clips or a patterned scarf headband, hair accessories add a splash of fun to any outfit, instantly.

Incase you missed it: shells are everywhere. The seaside staple has had a sartorial makeover and is better than ever.

No longer reserved for just ‘80s ravers and ‘90s skaters, bucket hats are officially back. Seen on the heads of celebrities like RiRi and Bella Hadid, they go well with pastel coloured-outfits, matching denim and even floral dresses, as influencer Lucy Williams proves.
