Streetwear, or everyday wear, is just as important to feel fabulous in as your fancy frocks or work wear, but it often gets left behind.


Sure, you can throw on a pair of jeans, and a tee to run out the door, but don’t discount how much adding a few accessories can elevate your look!


Trainers have become a staple in most of our wardrobes, but don’t be scared to branch out with a different colour or fabric – you can never have too many, right?!


As extra stylist tip when wearing your trainers with pants – roll up the hem  to expose your ankle a little, it will make your look feel less clunky.


Want to add some more funk to your everyday look? Why not add a hat? They are my go-to when I haven’t had a chance to wash my hair and the dry shampoo has stopped doing its job (haha!)


If hats aren’t usually your thing, then don’t be scared to give them a go! Try on a few different styles to work out what you like, and then make the effort to leave the house wearing one every now and then!


Here are a few of my favourite street-style accessories that will really give your everyday looks something extra:
