The Power of Minimal Accessories I Full story on

I get a lot of questions from you guys regarding how I manage to keep things simple yet interesting. Well, it’s all in the right mix of colours, textures and… accessories. The latter is often underestimated but the truth is: minimal accessories can be real game changers! Here’s why:

TRANSFORMERS. Take for example a basic jeans & T-shirt look. Nothing new, right? But picking the right accessories can transform a simple look within seconds. For work you might choose pointy sling pumps and a roomy tote, after work you can easily pick something more wild. Sneakers or sandals will beam this look into weekend. Don’t forget your sunnies and a straw hat!

SHINE NOT OUTSHINE. The trick is to pick accessories that underline your look rather than outshine it. Take fo example this monochrome Outfit – the sneakers and the bag makes it more interesting without stealing the spotlight of the embroidered shirt. Same with the knotted sandals or these summer essentials. Minimal accessories shine not outshine. That’s their power!

STYLING CHAMELEON. If an Outfit is quite loud itself, monochrome accessories help you to keep the balance. Sticking to one colour with shoes/bag/watch/sunnies etc. is always a great way to deal with not so simple looks. On the other hand accessories have the power to elevate a look: a touch of gold here, a pop of colour there and a instant styling upgrade is guaranteed.

My favourite accessory for styling upgrades are statement shoes.
That doesn´t mean they have to be “loud” and colourful, but special and unexpected.
Love your style choices!
