5 Must-Have Accessories This Spring

March is coming to an end which means Spring has finally sprung! And we all know what a new season means… a new wardrobe! Accessories such as jewellery, bags, and scarves are one of the easiest and most affordable ways to update your wardrobe, and we’ve compiled a list of the top 5 must-have accessories this Spring.


In case you’ve been living under a rock, a tote bag is a mid-large sized unfastened bag with parallel handles that emerge from the sides of its pouch. Designed to be carried on the shoulder, they are super lightweight, comfortable and are versatile enough to be used for a variety of purposes, such as carrying groceries, books, or beach essentials.

Tote bags can be made from a wide variety of fabrics and come in multiple colours and patterns. They are often made from lightweight, durable materials such as canvas, linen and cotton or from woven fabrics like jute. You can also find leather tote bags on the market! 

As well as their incredible versatility, tote bags are also eco-friendly, especially if you opt for biodegradable canvas totes. They are a sustainable alternative to plastic bags and can therefore help reduce waste.

So, whether you’re taking a trip to the beach, running errands, doing your weekly food shop or studying at the library, a spacious tote bag is the perfect addition to your outfit. Not forgetting the fact they are incredibly stylish! What’s more, tote bags have been popular for a while now, meaning they won’t be going out of style anytime soon.


During the warm spring/summer months, our hair and necks can become hot and sweaty and end up sticking to each other, especially if you have long, thick locks. Even the thought of this makes me feel uncomfortable! This is where hair claws are super handy as they can hold your hair up off the neck, keeping you cool on those sweaty days. 

What’s more, hair claws are easy to use and can create a variety of hairstyles within seconds. This makes them an ideal accessory for summer when you want to spend as little time styling your hair as possible and more time enjoying the outdoors.

Available in a variety of colours and designs, hair claws are a stylish accessory that can complement any summer outfit and add a touch of style to your hairstyle, whether that be a messy bun, sleek ponytail or half-up style.


Bold necklaces have been a popular accessory for many years and continue to be very much in style today. Chunky statement necklaces are currently trending in the fashion world, and as we head into the warmer months, the focus is on bright and vibrant colours, and unique shapes. 

Homemade is the new chic, which is why beaded necklaces are all the range right now and have been seen on many celebrities. So, if you like to get creative, why not pop down to your local arts shop, purchase some colourful pearls and beads and craft yourself the perfect spring/summer necklace. 

Layering multiple necklaces of varying lengths and styles is also a popular trend right now, allowing you even more opportunities to showcase bold colourful pieces to complement your outfit.


Spring can sometimes be a tricky time of year to dress for. A coat may feel too heavy but a t- shirt alone might not keep the chill away. The answer? A lightweight silk scarf - the perfect accessory to cross the bridge from winter to spring dressing, and a great addition if you want to add a pop of class or colour to your outfit indoors. 

There are copious amounts of silk scarf colours and patterns on the market, so you can really get creative and find the perfect one for you and your style. 


Statement jewellery shouldn’t just stop at necklaces - complete your outfit with a pair of bold statement earrings. These are typically larger in size than regular earrings and feature unique shapes, vibrant colours and/or intricate designs and textures. They can also be made from a variety of materials, such as metals, beads, gemstones, or feathers. 

From oversized hoops to beaded drop earrings to tooth stud earrings, there's a style for every occasion.
