The start of a new season is a very exciting time for fashion lovers, with the new "this season" collection in full swing! Changing of seasons allows for the perfect opportunity to experiment with your style and freshen up your look. A start of a new season does not only mean new clothes: the stores are now filled with the latest accessories perfect for this time of year. Accessories are the perfect way to customise your outfit and can also be the main feature of it!
Today at Eleven Oh Seven we talk through our favourite accessories for the coming summer months.

S' Picks

1. This Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume is the perfect scent for summer. It's light and fresh with a long-lasting scent, and the packaging is a statement in itself: beautiful and delicate. This scent is perfect for any summers day.  

2. Z for Accessorize has become of of my favourite jewellery brands on the high street. Designed to be layered for a luxe aesthetic, Zara Simon's collection is this season's must have jewellery trend with it's dainty designs, discrete detail and stacking ideals. I already have my eye on her 2x wishbone stacked midi ring.

3. Pastel bags are perfect for the summer months and they're a great way to add colour to your style after the winter season. I am currently obsessing over this Topshop Boxy PU Tote. The cream colour could brighten up any outfit and the laser cut detail on the side of the bag adds an edge to the design. 

4. Nail colour is the perfect way to customise an outfit. This summer, Olivia Palermo has teamed up with Ciaté London to create this luxe collection. I love these colours as they are perfect for summer. With a mix of bright red, coral and a pinky nude perfect for a Summer wedding, this collection will definitely get your nails summer ready.

5. Heeled sandals and fringing are two of the most popular trends this summer and when I spotted these fringe high heeled sandals from Zara I couldn't help but have the urge to buy them there and then. Also in cream, this shoe would be perfect to add a statement to any outfit without being too overpowering.

6. As soon as summer hits, everyone becomes obsessed with sunglasses! This year I love the ShayxQuay collection (similar here). Her statement designs add a modern twist to the classic sunglasses design. I couldn't resist picking a pair up when they were released in the UK (check out our Instagram to see which ones I chose!)

K's Picks

1. This Zara perfume: Vanilla Wood is a firm favourite of mine, with hints of mandarin, peach, cocoa and praline as well as the obvious vanilla, this scent is lightly floral and fruity - perfect for summer days and evenings.

2. Birkenstocks seem to have the 'Marmite' effect: you either love them or hate them. Safe to say that I'm definitely in the former category, and with the majority of high street stores bringing out their own versions of this strap style sandle, you can wear them for a more affordable price. I love these original Birkenstocks from ASOS in white as they're a classic colour that will perfectly accompany your summer wardrobe.

3. Phone and tablet cases are a perfect way to dress up your tech and update their aesthetic throughout the year, giving that extra flash of colour and design to your overall look. I'm a huge fan of this Rifle Paper Co. case, as it's boldly floral and hand-designed.

4. As S said, nail colour is the perfect way to finish off an outfit, matching them to your accessories or a colour you're wearing. I personally love pastels for summer (as well as spring) as they always look great with a tan! These Topshop colours: Boy Next Door and Parma Violet are my current favourites, and being part of Topshop's limited edition '5 Years of Beauty' range, they come in this gorgeous rose gold packaging!

5. A summer styled hat is a definite essential for me this time of year. Not only do they aid with keeping the sun out of your eyes, but can pull a outfit together, especially when you're off to the beach! This braided Madeline hat from Free People is gorgeous with a wide brim and ribbon detail.

6. Ear cuffs are the perfect jewellery statement this season, ranging from dainty to bold and elaborate designs. Being a rose gold fan (if you couldn't already guess!), I love this cute leaf/vine inspired design ear cuff from Topshop. It's understated design will add that little bit of extra attention to your jewellery this summer.
