Elevating Your Outfit with Accessories

Here at La Redoute, we believe in the power of accessories. In fact, they might just be our favourite thing to buy. We love how a pair of strappy shoes, a colour-pop bag or the shiny flash of silver can transform an ensemble into something completely new.
We’ve all been stuck in a style rut before, but a few simple ideas can help you breathe new life into an outfit that’s started to lose its sparkle. Let’s go!

1. Don’t forget the jewellery

The right necklace, cuff, ring or earring can add fun and personality to an ensemble as simple as jeans and a t-shirt. This summer we’re adding Tasselled Earrings to everything, especially if they’re as loud and proud as these. This black and silver bangle Orla Kiely bangle is dainty, feminine and chic, a sure-fire winner with an LBD and sandals but will actually go with anything.

2. Add a bag

A handbag has the power to pull an outfit together and while we love all types, the clutch has to be our fave. This Woven Cotton Tassel Shoulder Clutch can be dressed up with a skirt and cami, or down with jeans and a cardigan, and it shines just as bright every time. For lazy summer days this Basket Bag turns a trip to the supermarket into something special – team it with a loose shirt dress and gold hoops. We’re choosing fuchsia pompoms ‘cuz we’re extra like that. 

3. Belt it

Often the shape of our clothes can feel a little blah, and it’s hard to look good if you don’t feel it. Belts are our secret weapon. Try adding one to a loose knit or straight-cut midi dress and watch it instantly transform the silhouette, giving you a whole new shape to work with. This 2 Pack of Snake Skin Skinnies is our must-buy, although we love this Wide Tie version too.

4. Sophisticated scarves

There’s something about a scarf that makes us feel fancy, so we use them to add a little glamour and maturity when we want to. This Tribal Print Scarf is perfect around the neck to add a little something to a denim shirt or dress. If it doesn’t work with your neckline, try wrapping a scarf around your ponytail or tie it to your handbag handle. This Printed Bandana would work beautifully.
