As always, accessories can make or break an outfit. They’re hard to get right because they can look a bit too try hard when not got right. As sighted in the 15 failsafe pieces of advice, try and think of whether you actually need it to an extent. Eg wearing a winter scarf over a t-shirt is a terrible sin.

When it comes to jewelery, nothing chunky. As long as it’s not pink with flowers, you can get away with most things and if your outfit will suit it, nod towards the nautical theme this summer with an anchor or swallow. Longer necklaces look a lot better than short ones and please ensure to don’t get a plain chunky silver chain or rosary beads.

When it comes to your watch you can take two routes, go for a retro classic such as a Casio or find something fun thats going to look interesting but not like a swatch watch. A good brand is Toy Watch Company and they are about as sound as you can get. But I don’t have £125 so it’s best to shop around for a retro watch. The classic casios that are being sold at urbanoutfitters are everywhere so if you want something a bit different check out the selection on amazon. This is my pick.

When it comes to scarves in the summer, make sure they are light and never knitted. These can be a subtle and not in your face way of incorporating the tie dye trend for the summer.

Denim Bow Tie.

The bow tie was big news in AW 08, either giving you an alternative to a skinny tie in the workplace or occasion, or adding a nice twist to a shirt on a normal day. Clear lens glasses appeared to be uniform with this look and it was just another one of those ‘geek chic’ things which I’v never really enjoyed. However with this denim neck tie, you can incorporate everyone’s love for anything denim, and try not to look overly American by toning it down, or even better, incorporate it with a denim short in the same way a white neck tie adds more life to a plain white shirt.

This new Danish label seems very exciting. The clothes I’v seen that have arrived on the oki-ni website feature oversized silhouettes and bold prints at good prices. The jeans are available from May 8th.
