Accessorising has the power to transform your look from ordinary to extraordinary. From bags galore to matching your friends to your handbag, here are the chicest ways to update your look. Right now.

Here are 10 Instagram posts that prove just that. Take a look.

1. The more bags the merrier

Want to wear more than one bag? Why not! Make like Chiara and even don three. More space to carry your make-up in, right?

2. Accessories can liven up a plain outfit

Accessories make the everyday looks look amazing. Take note of how Negin turns this simple outfit of jeans and a jumper into a fierce, fashion-forward outfit by adding a fringed bag and some statement Aquazzura heels.

3. You can never go wrong with a pair of statement earrings

Arielle always looks fabulous walking down the streets of New York but the earrings she is wearing here really make her outfit pop. Oh and the amazing pair of red Louboutins help too! Could a double-denim look be any cooler?

5. Who said accessories couldn’t be functional?

When Olivia Palermo wears something, we know it is chic. Nobody gives a sartorial seal of approval like Olivia. So the Apple Watch, which some may have seen as a clunky, un-stylish gadget, is now official IN. Plus who doesn’t love an accessory you can send emails from?

6. Your hair and make-up can count as accessories too

Millie Mackintosh showed us exactly how this can be done with her festival-inspired braids and cute nail art. Give it a whirl.

8. Experiment

Try out different accessories to find which ones works for you, just like Leonie. Try a fedora, a mini cross-body bag in an eye-catching colour, or even a statement piece of jewellery. Experimenting is what the great fashionistas of the world do all the time, so why not try it too?

9. You can accessorize all year round and have fun with it

Wind, rain or shine, accessories will always brighten up your outfit. Throwing a leather jacket over a summer dress will forever look stylish, but adding accessorises really makes an outfit pop. Don’t you just love Lydia‘s Chloe Susanna boots and Faye bag paired with this Boohoo dress?

10. You can accessorize with your friends

Whether you want to use your friends as accessories or accessorize your outfits with your friends, you can. Travel on your sartorial journey with those around you. Also yes, a red lolly can count as an accessory too.
