The simple act of slapping on some accessories before you walk out the door can truly be the difference between looking drab and completely put-together. How you accessorise your outfit says a lot about you, and can make or break your look.

Here are some 2021 style tips for accessorising simply but effectively.


Your glasses say a lot about you – whether they’re for your vision or simply keeping the sun out of your eye. When your frames are on-trend, you have a default accessory that adds a pop of fun and intrigue to your look.

Wide frames and two tone glasses are some fun and vibrant but still classy trends that you could try out for your next pair. Don’t be afraid to shake things up a little!

Tote Bags

This is a trend that seems to be surviving the ages – tote bags are a fun and practical addition to any outfit. Whether you opt for leather, cotton or woven bags, a plain jane or a tote with a bright print or sarcastic quote, you’re always good to go with one of these bags slung over your shoulder.

Statement Earrings

More and more ladies are deciding to go down the simple route when it comes to their outfits, and rather letting their jewellery speak volumes for them.

A simple T-shirt and jeans look, paired with a striking pair of earrings in a bright colour is becoming a fashion favourite in 2021. Think big and bold, and if you’re brave you could even try out mismatched pairs.

Face Masks

An important trend that seems to be here to stay (at least for now), is the humble face mask. Sure, you could just grab the first clean one you can get your hands on and head out the door. But where’s the fun in that?

Since the start of the pandemic, brands have gotten creative with their mask designs and it’s no difficult feat to match your mask perfectly to the rest of your outfit just for a little flair.

Beaded Necklaces

Do you remember making matching beaded necklaces with your BFF when you were eight? Best believe those are making a comeback in the fashion world, and it’s time to haul out your old collection.

Layering up beaded chokers in different colours, or mixing and matching them with necklaces of different lengths is a fun look that can add dimension to any outfit. (Let’s not forget you can do this with bracelets too!)


Another returning trend is that of the cute and dainty headscarf. Adding one of these to your outfit is enough to make it look like you’ve made an effort – they’re effortless and perfect for a bad hair day too.

A pretty patterned headscarf is the perfect addition to any cute boho look, a white sundress, a T-shirt and jeans or even a warmer winter style – the world is your oyster.

The Bottom Line

Try to remember that any outfit can be spiced up and finished off with a little tender loving care put into how you accessorise it. Let your closet hold your essential, staple items, and have all the fun with your add-ons.
