Head over heels

Excess of excellent accessories

Though neutral clothing items have become the main form of style, accessories have made up for what outfits are lacking. A bold belt or patterned head scarf are trendy items that are commonly worn at Starr’s Mill.

This year, bold accessories are in. From patterned belts and large hoop earrings, there are a multitude of options to choose from that will add pizzazz to any outfit.

Because clothing has been extremely neutral in colors, people can add an accent with a funky belt. Whether it’s animal print or involves a show-stopping buckle, a belt is a subtle way to elevate an outfit. Bandanas and small scarves have also come back into style. Tie one on a front belt loop for a bohemian look. Forever 21 and thrift stores like Goodwill are the perfect places to shop if you are searching for the perfect belt.

Jewelry has morphed into a staple for any outfit. Simplistic, stackable necklaces are commonly worn with most clothing. Hoop earrings are the must-have comeback item this year. No matter the size, color, or shape, a hoop earring is a versatile item that pairs well with casual leggings and a sweatshirt or a nice dress and cardigan.

Small, mix-matched bracelets are on trend this year as well. Worn with hair ties and scrunchies, this combination makes for the perfect arm candy. Shop at local boutiques like Lizard Thicket and Unhinged for the perfect item of jewelry.

Hair scarves are also incredibly popular this year. Fun prints and colors give a neutral outfit the right amount of bold that it needs. This accessory works with any hairstyle and is easy and comfortable to wear for long periods of time.

These popular accessories are here to stay. Choose a few of your favorite versatile items and pair them with a multitude of outfits.

Accessories give you the freedom to express yourself where clothing cannot. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and wear a bold item!
