A Street Style Guide to Accessories

When it comes to accessories, there are a million different ways to go – however there are a certain few items that you need in order to keep your style looking cool and fresh! Here is your perfect guide to accessories – all year round!


If you think you don’t need sunglasses, you’re wrong. Doesn’t matter if you’re a girl or guy, old or young, or whether it’s summer or winter – you need a pair of shades! Your sunglasses should reflect your personality; if you’re a girly girl, typical big white sunglasses suit you – if you’re a bit of a hipster, the rounded 70s style will do you some good. Get with it – get a pair of shades!


It might sound crazy but it doesn’t matter what time of year it is, you always need a good scarf – or ten! Even in summer, keep a couple of really light material scarves in your wardrobe – a good scarf can take any outfit from drab to fab! And once again, it doesn’t matter if you’re a boy or girl – guys can pull of scarves too.



Anklets are coming back in a big way and you better get on the bandwagon before it’s too late. Unlike in previous years, we’re not talking silver charmed anklets, we’re talking cute ‘boho’ style material anklets! Don’t take it too far though, 20 anklets on the one foot might be a bit of overkill. The key here is to go for simplicity, to spice up that cute beach outfit – or anytime you wear thongs or sandals really!


Sun Hats

Sun hats are really in right now – it seems like every time you go to the beach or even the park, there are girls every where in hats the size of UFO’s! While it’s good to be sun-safe, sometimes this look can be taken overboard. Solution: Get a sunhat, but an understated one – a hat that’s big enough to still be on trend, but not so big that people will be wondering if you’re harbouring aliens inside your head!


Watches are practical, useful and always cute. The right watch can really set off an outfit – if you’ve got a top that comes to the elbow, and a dainty bracelet on one wrist, a watch will perfectly finish off your look. The trick with watches is the colour you go for – it sounds silly but it’s just like with any outfit; the colour of the watch needs to go with your skin tone!

There you have it – a street style guide to accessories! Accessories can be so much fun and quite often, you’ll have an outfit that looks unfinished until you add the right watch or scarf! Keep your options open – stock up on all the accessories you’ll ever need and then you’ll never be without! And if you’ve seen an accessory in this list that you don’t have, be sure to head to Universal Store – whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it there!
