Autumn is well and truly upon us and to be honest we’re extremely happy about it. No…not about the colder days and darker nights but instead for the cozy knits and endless layers of clothing.
We both agree that during the winter, it’s not always the easiest to maintain a glamorous look when jeans, wooly knits and jackets prevail but one thing that can give you that edge is accessorising your outfits, whether that’s a cute pendant, stacks of rings or a statement clutch.
This month we’ve linked up with the accessories brand, Accessorize, in order to style up our autumn looks with some of our new, favourite pieces!
For us, Autumn and winter are always busy in terms of parties, DJing and events, so it’s important for us to pick looks and pieces that we can wear in the day but that are also versatile enough to wear at night , dressed up with our favourite party outfits! The smaller clutch bags in the Accessorise collection alongside their jewellery (which can be layered and stacked for a more glamorous look) are the perfect additions to achieve this.
As most of you know, we love our simple jewellery and it’s rare to see us rocking bold statement pieces very often, so we chose some of Accessorize’s rings that match our style perfectly. Super simple stacking rings both in gold and silver which pair amazingly with any type of colour of outfit. Both of us normally wear gold however Accessorise have some amazing silver rings so I personally thought I’d change it up a bit and rock the silver, where Jordan has stuck with her staple gold. Perfect for both a casual day out shopping or a fancy evening dinner party. You just can’t go wrong with these simple, stacking rings.
One thing you’ll always see us wearing with any outfit (even pyjamas sometimes) are pendants, and this season, Accessorize have some super cute ones we just had to get our hands on. A few that we are obsessed with at the moment are those with stars and moons on. We’re absolutely loving this pattern at the moment, which you’ll probably gather by the two matching clutches we’re wearing as well, both covered in gold stars. And… if that wasn’t enough, we also chose matching style berets. Stars galore! Talking of berets….there does seem to be a resurgence of the beret this season and we’re loving it. French, elegant and sassy! We both recently changed up our hairstyles for the winter, and there’s nothing like a cute hat to accentuate them. ‘Beret nice indeed!’
As well as the starry clutch bags we also chose a couple of cute over the shoulder navy, furry body bags which again are perfect for both the day and night and you can release the strap on them for a perfectly party ready clutch. We both wore them last week on a cheeky shopping spree around Notting Hill and wore them the same evening when out Djing in Camden at Oktoberfest. Transitional or what!
Talking about Djing, I’m sure other female DJs out there would agree, the last thing you want to be worrying about when playing to a crowd of hundreds of people, is lugging around a huge bag with you and having to faff around with all your unnecessary items lost amongst a jumble of mess. (Maybe we speak for ourselves here in regards to the jumble of mess!) A small bag is the the perfect choice when heading to play your music at a set. If you’re like us, we only DJ off USB’s now, which makes things a lot easier and a lot lighter. So having a small cute clutch bag or an off the shoulder bag to simply chuck your USBs, phone and money in, is literally all you need! Hence why we’ve chosen a few from Accessorise this season. Not only stylish but super practical! Where do the headphones go then? I hear you say… Just around our necks….We’re cool like that ;)
Now I'm not sure about you guys but we always find jewellery boxes hard to keep our dainty necklaces and pendants in, so draping them over decorative cocktail glasses seems rather fitting and stops the necklaces from knotting, it also looks pretty cute, bonus.
We’ve included a variety of casual day-time and smarter evening wear shots amongst our images to illustrate the transitional nature of the Accessorise pieces we’ve chosen this Autumn. We’ve already been wearing these pieces constantly: Come day, come night, come lunch dates, come dinner parties, come shopping sprees, come DJ gigs, you name it, these pieces are a perfect match for all of these occasions. All we can say is, thank god the stigma attached to wearing the same clothes isn’t attached to wearing the same accessories, if so, we’d be guilty of some serious fashion faux pas!
