4 accessories to take a plain outfit to the next level

Ever get that feeling that your outfit just needs something else? I feel you. And, I got you. Here are the accessories of the moment that will take your simple outfit from stylish to Insta-chic in 5 seconds flat.

1. Gold earrings

A simple white shirt can look incredibly stylish when you add some amazing earrings as you can see with Anna from The Anna Edit here. Her mid-sized chunky gold hoops are giving me serious J-Lo vibes. It gives off that awesome cool-girl Insta look instantly making you look put together af. Big or little, chunky gold hoops are seriously now.

We’re also seeing an influx of huggies, multiple studs and abstract earrings made from new materials such as resin flood the high street so there’s a pair of earrings for every style out there. Check out Topshop for some amazingly affordable earrings that you can easily pair with your fave jeans and a tee to elevate your look. Plus, you get a killer 10% off with your UNiDAYS discount!

2. Statement sunnies

Fashun queen Megan Ellaby is a sunglasses connoisseur. This gal really knows how to work a stylish frame and she does it with confidence. That’s her key! No matter how crazy the pair of sunnies, if you’re rocking them with flair and you don’t give af you’ll look amazing. Take advantage of your 10% off Topshop and check out their range of sunnies that will have you prayin’ for sunshine like nobody’s business.

3. Cute shoes

How often do we all get in the rut of wearing the same shoes over and over again? I am so guilty of this with my favourite Converse and as much as I love ‘em and they are cute in their own way - they don’t pack much of a style punch.

I love how Jess from fashion blog Copper Garden has paired her simple monochrome outfit with girly and cute gingham tie up sandals. Our toes might get a little bit chilly come the winter months but it doesn’t mean that shoes have to be boring!

Hit up ASOS and investigate their awesome boots selection, we’re talking red, printed, leopard - everything. Pair your favourite jeans and a white tee with a simple leather jacket and some red ankle boots? You’ve nailed chic with some serious added style statement. Check out Karina from Style Idealist’s amazing red on red look with these killer boots!

4. The silk scarf

Whether you’re tying it round your ponytail or rocking it a la French gal like Liv Purvis, the silky neckerchief can really elevate a cosy jumper to super chic Insta-worthy outfit. Obviously even more perfect when paired with carbs, especially baguettes!

Find one in a colour that complements your skin tone and hair colour and whatever plain tee you’re wearing will instantly become more gorge.

There we have it! 4 cheap as chips accessories that you can pick up on the high street (obviously with student discount!) and will instantly vamp up your day to day uni outfits. From hair accessories to simple sunnies, there’s bound to be a new accessory in this line up you’ll love!
