Western belts have been around for over a year already and I'm so happy to finally have my hands on one! I purchased mine from ASOS for $25 CAD which I thought was a steal for the quality and price. A lot of other companies sell identical ones for so much more so if you're looking to get one, definitely check out ASOS. I love how versatile it is and the double buckle detailing makes the outfit different.
2) WHITE CROSSBODY BAG
I know everyone says to get a black crossbody because it's a staple and I believe that it is as well. I like using a white crossbody instead because I think it works better for me because of the clothing I wear. I tend to wear a lot of darks and neutrals in the winter. I think a white crossbody makes the outfit pop a bit. Then in the spring/summer months, I tend to wear lighter colours anyways which white compliments perfectly!
3) GREY WOOL FEDORA HAT
This is one of my favourite hats to wear! Surprisingly, I was able to fit in a one-size hat in Forever 21 (which if you know, is nearly impossible for me most of the time!). I wear a bunch of different hats like beanies, cabby hats and even a straw hat. Each season, I swap out my capes and hats for the appropriate season that I keep in a box above my closet. This particular hat is the one I always keep out because it's the perfect style that fits any season! Plus, with the neutral colour, it makes it easy to match with any outfit. If you don't know, I always love choosing a shade of grey over black because I feel like black is too harsh.
4) MIRRORED SUNGLASSES
I always thought the idea of wearing sunglasses in the winter didn't make sense but because we had a lot of sunny days in the winter this year, I realized how sunglasses are perfect all-year round. I particularly love mirrored ones simply because they make your outfit 2389473892x cooler. You all know how obsessed I am with the PENELOPE pair from EyeBuyDirect and you bet I'll be wearing them on repeat this spring/summer!
5) STATEMENT NECKLACE
I'm sure I've mentioned how whenever I'm too lazy to put together an outfit, I throw on a plain top with a statement necklace...it always makes it look like you tried without actually trying. I always opt for my Bauble Bar necklaces but in particular, it's the silver one photographed below! I got it a couple of years ago and find that it matches with so many different pieces. I also have a rainbow one that I use whenever I want a pop of colour.
