5 SS18 ACCESSORIES TO LOVE
By Maybelle Morgan, May 12, 2018
So, you've nailed your SS18 warmer weather wardrobe, but it’s not a head-to-toe deal until you’ve got the outfit add-ons to accompany. Following on from the trickle-down of the '80s trend, right now it’s all about kitsch, kitsch, kitsch. Follow in the footsteps of these ASOS Insiders with five accessories that'll take you through to the summer…
Witness the takeover of Instagram-hyped accessories in action thanks to ASOS Insider Lotte. Bright-red jeans paired with a cutesy embroidered top make for a summery get-up, but the addition of '80s Perspex accessories (a bobble grab-handle bag, plus cat-eye shades) add instant cool.
Spring prints don’t have to get vetoed just because florals aren’t your deal. ASOS Insider Sophia adds a bright pop of colour to her shoulders-up deal with this bold scarf. Neat, slicked-back hair and minimal glowy makeup showcase the accessories perfectly, and minimal silver earrings turn the glam level up a notch.
Here’s solid proof that the '80s trend is showing no signs of slowing down. A jolt of neon yellow on a belt is a welcome addition to ASOS Insider Jana’s casual weekend look. The retro twist is with the safety buckle and extra-long strap, which dress up her punky slashed jeans. To finish? A tied-up slouchy tee, plus some chunky monochrome Converse to balance out the detailing.
Teensy, barely there 2000s Olsens-style sunglasses are at the peak of their popularity right now. And check out ASOS Insider Elizabeth working super-retro shades with dark lenses and bright white frames. Matched with a white cropped tank and a patchwork oversized denim jacket, this is ultimate spring style goals.
Hats off to you
Formerly a solid '90s streetwear staple, for SS18, kitschy prints and fluffy textures have revamped the bucket hat for major cute points. ASOS Insider Ebony wears hers in loud leopard print to add an instant festival vibe to her look. For the outfit: black washed-out overalls over a plain slouchy tee for a relaxed look, but then, a slick of scarlet lippie and some gold jewelry for a more glammed-up finish.
