I’m the laziest dresser I know. A creature of comfort. A slave to routine, if you will. My daily ‘OOTD’ (outfit of the day) for as long as I can recall has consisted of black pants and a tee, paired with a great pair of boots or sneakers. I looked great, sure, but this past year something came over me… The want and need to tsjuz up my style, update my look, and have a lil’ bit more fun with it all.
It all started out with the great Bonds Chesty Resurgence Of 2017 (I still wear the same Chesty singlet I’ve had since I was 12—no word of a lie.) The shape is perfect, and they can be layered super easily *cough* transseasonal dressing sorted *cough*. After this, onto the scrunchie bandwagon I hopped. I was feeling cute, sassy, and sort of like a 7-year-old again. I loved it. I didn’t just stop at that—I added socks, hair clips and belts into the mix as well. I had completely updated and renewed my look, just by adding a couple of accessories that cost less than my morning coffee.
Updating your lewk doesn’t have to cost a bomb—in fact, it’s infinitely more rewarding to give yourself a makeover when the items in question cost all of $6. The COH team know a thing or three about cost-effective accessorising, so we put together an edit for you of all our favourites (that aren’t going to cost you an arm or leg). You’re welcome!
SCRUNCHIES To be completely honest, I never stopped loving scrunchies. I just feel like there sudden shortage of them, really. Nevertheless, they are back in full force! Slipsilk has made the dreamiest scrunchies made to protect your hair, not breaking and damaging it as other hair ties do. And they’re 100% silk. So carpe the diem, and grab yourself a different colour for every day of the week.
STRING NET BAGS
These bad boys have taken the werld by storm. It makes sense because they are practically free, are reminiscent of cute sunny days spent at the farmer’s markets and are the only ~It-bag~ that won’t make your bank account cry. In fact, these ones only cost $6, so why not buy one in every single colour?
I never really cared for what kind of socks I was wearing, that was until I saw my friend rocking a pair of these SOCC bad boys. Super cute with a pair of sneakers, or even peeping out above a pair of boots or Mary Janes. You heard it here first.
