First jumper – $20 (£17) Monki; Second jumper – $90 (£57) Chic Nova; Third jumper – $68 (£43) Romwe.

Slouchy knits have kind of been my favourite thing since forever purely because if you get a gorgeous one you can wear it with nearly everything else in your wardrobe. They come in handy on days when you can’t be bothered to make an effort; people will think you actually have. It’s the perfect wardrobe staple for me as it means wrapping up warm actually looks good (none of that, “I don’t care if it’s minus 30, embellished shorts will get you noticed.”), and it means lots of delving into your boyfriend’s or dad’s wardrobe – they’re sure to have some absolute beauties.

First scrunchie – $3 (£1.89) Snow Leotards; Second scrunchie – $32 (£20) Marc Jacobs; Third scrunchie – $6 (£3.77) American Apparel.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. It’ll be the exact same thought I had when I saw a girl wearing a black velvet scrunchie on the bus. Your trail of thought went a little something like this, “What is she thinking? She’s brave. Making a statement. I really like that material. I wonder if I could pull that off. I’m going to get one.”
I think they look super cute with a messy top-knot – see Ashish’s Spring/Summer 13 collection for inspiration!

First necklace – $24 (£15) Thread sence; Second necklace – $14 (£8.80) Nordstrom; Third necklace – £15 New Look.

Do I need to go into why statement necklace’s are the best thing in the world, ever? Do I really?
For those of you who are yet to be won over by this trend (why?!?!!) then here are some points as to why you should love some bling on your neck:
1) Statement necklaces, especially like the ones pictures are an extremely good way of giving your look a touch of glamour and luxe,
2) Most necklaces go. It’s about making an eye-catching statement. Can’t seem to let go of your favourite doll as a child? Wear it on a chain and people will love you for it*.
3) You can get some really beautiful necklaces and they make you look cool. That’s reason enough.

*this may be a slight exaggeration. But you get the drift.
