There’s a definite feeling of spring in the air. It’s amazing how the ever-so-slightly-lighter evenings make us want to discard our winter wardrobe and free our limbs of scratchy knits and too-tight jeans. While we’re not quite there yet, there’s light at the end of winter’s tunnel. The long weekend is in sight and whether that means jetting off for two weeks of sun or even a Great British staycation, these 4 accessories should definitely feature.

You’ve heard of arm candy but what about EAR candy? This season, we’re rediscovering our love for lobes and adorning them with avant-garde danglers! You might have snapped up some tassel earrings at the start of the season but now it’s all about taking inspiration from modern sculpture… think mismatched metals, colourful resins and asymmetric shapes. Apparently, earrings are ‘the thinking woman’s jewellery’ – we like the sound of that – so stock up on some statement styles and take them for a spin over the long weekend!

If architectural earrings aren’t really your cup of tea, don’t lose faith. We’re back to arm candy for the second drool-worthy accessory to add to your shopping list. When the weather improves and we start phasing in our spring wardrobe, it’s no surprise that our reliable carry-all companion begins to look a little… sorry for itself. Warm weather requires lighter colours and tactile fabrics when it comes to bags, not the weather proof, robust lookalike leather we’ve been lugging around for months. Enter our gorgeous natural stripe ring handle beauty.

Do you ever finish getting ready to go out, ponder your reflection and come to the conclusion your outfit is missing the finishing touch that pulls it all together? Well look no further! A silk neckerchief is SUCH an underestimated wardrobe addition. Perfect for those who aren’t really into jewellery (but also great if you are!), it can be worn in a multitude of ways to give your look a more ‘considered’ feel. We’re wearing ours the usual way, round our neck with the ‘tails’ to the side but it’s also very en Vogue to tie it around your ponytail. Now pass us the rosé…

Sound the holiday klaxon!! These are ready and waiting to be packed. We’re not sure what we love most… the timeless woven design, the summery ochre or the fact they’re leather which makes them a sensible shoes to be exploring in. As well as being the perfect accompaniment to your holiday dresses, these will contrast effortlessly against true blue denim – for those summer off-duty looks we can’t WAIT to wear.
