How do you feel about accessorizing? If I had to chose, Spring and Summer would be my favourite seasons to go bold with accessories. Maybe it is because our legs are bare, our arms go sleeveless, or its time to dust off those backless dresses and off the shoulder tops. Now, what to do with all this freshly exposed skin? I know, pile some bracelets and layer them necklaces!
This season’s accessories are a feast for the eyes and include bold, corky and utterly dreamy pieces. It got me thinking that at some point this summer, we should all attempt to try at least one of these looks. There are many accessories you can choose from and the following are some of my favourites!

You may have spotted one of the biggest fashion bloggers, Chiara Ferragni, wearing a tiara during Coachella this year. While tiaras are typically worn by real princess, donning a tiara for your next night out may be the daring piece you have been looking for all season. Remember balance and try not to go too girly with this look. Pair your tiara with chunky Doc martins and maybe some dark eyeliner to bring an edgier feel to this look.
Pull another Chiara Ferragni, or follow along with other fashionistas like Kendall Jenner, who were wearing bold jewels at Coachella. These statement necklaces bring a level of drama to an outfit like no other. Find the statement necklace that suits your style (and frame!) and be sure to wear it for any occasion. The bonus is that you can easily take this look from the cubicle to the cocktail lounge.
If large, chunky necklaces are not your thing, then try layering delicate necklaces for a softer more bohemian look. Layer them over a simple white shirt or draw some attention to your shoulders. Delicate necklaces are the perfect subtle accessories for gals with simple style.

Cozy and dark colored capes belong in your winter wardrobe. But don’t forget colour and bold prints this summer and accessorize with flowy capes, even on the warmest days. Find a delicate piece — one that is made of lace or sheer and draped with pearls or crystals and turn a simple dress into an elegant look to wear for those special occasions. A shear layer can also help you hide from the sun and protect your skin.
The 80s and its cacophony of colors clearly transpires in the hair band accessory pieces found this season. From pompom hair bands to floral numbers, it seems like this spring your hair needs as much attention as the rest of your outfit. And yes, the scrunchy is back with a vengeance!
Rings seem to have made a glorious comeback these past few years and this season be sure to pile those thin bands together and don rings on all of your fingers, even on your pinky!

A hot new trend, and oh-so Parisian look this summer is the scarf! Neatly tied around the neck with a simple white shirt or paired with a midi dress can go a long way. Skip the necklace and opt for the scarf, which can be perfect to wear to the office and beyond and channel a look that will never go out of style.
