When it comes to putting an outfit together, statement accessories can make all the difference. For me accessories are more than an afterthought. In fact, I would go so far as to say that I usually decide what accessories I want to wear and then put the rest of my outfit together to match or clash with my accessories. Kind of back to front if you like.
Everyone has their own individual style and style isn’t determined by how expensive an item is. A savvy fashionista knows that it’s all about how you put an outfit together. There is no need to dress in brand name labels from the crown of your head to the sole of your feet for it to be said that you have style.
If like me, you like statement jewellery that stands out from the crowd then look no further than Jewellery brand Maybell Smooches. This up and coming accessory brand is the brain child of Anita who was raised by her grandmother Maybell on the paradise island of Jamaica. We all know that Smooch means “kiss” and most of us like to be kissed and also love how kisses make us feel. Growing up under the nurturing care of her grandmother gave Anita the inspiration for the name of her brand.
Anita is hoping that wearing pieces from the label and also the service received will make customers feel like they have been “smooched” you know that feeling that puts an extra pep in your step! And who doesn’t want to feel like that? The brand has big plans for the future and their ultimate plan is to create a full beauty spot where women can come and find an outfit, accessories, hair etc. and get stylist recommendations on how to put the whole look together.
They currently have a selection of attention-grabbing pieces guaranteed to lift the most basic of outfits. They are an online company based in the UK who are passionate about creating a platform that women into fashion can express themselves through creating their own style. In the words of the brand owner and creative director:
“WE LIVE BY THE MOTTO IT’S NOT WHAT YOU WEAR BUT HOW YOU PUT PIECES OF CLOTHING/ACCESSORIES TOGETHER”
One of my favourites (trust me it was hard to choose) are these Pom-Pom Tassel earrings. As soon as I saw them I knew that I would style them with this Leaf Print Flamenco Inspired dress from Store WF. There are 2 main reasons that I chose these earrings. 1. I love that they have a myriad of colours making them the perfect accessory to compliment any outfit. 2. They are on trend as Tassel Earrings are big news at the moment.
