Whether you get the pocket-friendly version or splurge on something a little more luxurious, these trendy pieces will take your look from drab to fab.

Ballet flats are a girl’s go-to comfy shoe, and can be taken from casual to elegant depending on what they’re styled with.
Stylist’s tip: Wear them with stockings in a matching colour to create the illusion of longer legs.

You don’t have to be a rock star to wear studs. Add some bite to an ordinary outfit by matching your studded belt with a cool leather jacket, distressed jeans and some sexy ankle boots.
Stylist’s tip: Make sure you get the belt in your right size. It should buckle through the middle hole – any longer or shorter and it won’t look quite right.

Make a statement with a bold Aztec-inspired necklace. Wear one with a denim shirt, or colourful blouse for a sparkling daytime look, or pair your jewelled piece with a sharp bodycon dress for a smarter affair.
Stylist’s tip: While statement necklaces are traditionally used to spice up plainer outfits, don’t shy away from wearing a bit of bling with a bold top – the key to pulling off the look is to keep the rest of the outfit simple.

BLUSH TOTE BAG
Blush colours have been taking over runways and fashion blogs. This previously overlooked colour is the perfect alternative to a classic brown or black tote bag, and incorporates well into a minimalist look.
Stylist’s tip: This shade works best when paired with monochromes, burgundy or light denim. Wear shoes in the same shade for a very polished look.
