The Accessories from Hey Happiness to Brighten-Up Post-Festive Blues!

Coco Chanel once said that “accessories are what makes or marks a woman.” Here at YCB, we couldn’t agree more. During this bitter, post-festive period of winter we now find ourselves in, we see more and more outfits bedazzled in glistening golds and pops of colour. This year, we seem to be battling the bare trees and grey skies by infusing a sense of joy in our outfits instead! In this case, accessories are the perfect addition. However, to avoid the fashion faux-pas of going overboard, we’ve created a guide of how to put an elegant, finishing touch on a wintry outfit with the sustainable, Berlin-based brand, Hey Happiness.

Velvet, a Red Lip, and Pearls 

There’s something to be said about the subtle beauty of pearls. Whether they’re hung in a chain around the neck or from the ears in a dainty hoop, a string of pearls will always add an effortless touch of luxury to an outfit. So, if you’re seeking a sophisticated finish such as velvets and dark colours, we’d recommend adding a hint of panache with these timeless pearl hoop earrings from Hey Happiness. Effortlessly easy to pull off, these earrings are crafted in Sterling silver and embellished with an exquisite ring of freshwater pearl charms. Mastering the art of being both low-key and eye-catching, this set is the missing piece to a refined, yet head-turning outfit. All that’s left is to add a brilliant shade of red to the lips to channel your inner Audrey Hepburn and tah-dah! You’ve beaten the January blues. 

Match Dainty with Daring 

If your outfit is one which is adorned with bright colours and patterns, a safe option would be to skip accessories entirely in fear of looking more costume than chic. However, you can, in fact, have both. We have established that it’s important to not over-do it, so if your outfit is a daring one, we have one top tip. The key is to opt for dainty accessories- think thin chains and petite charms such as this gorgeous Galactic Pendant Necklace in 9K gold.

These types of styles will complement your outfit without making it head-turning for all the wrong reasons. What’s more, pair the necklace with these Galactic Studs, for a perfect set that adds a subtle finishing touch without stealing the attention from your outfit.

Put the Spotlight on Accessories 

Next, we have the lifesaving hack of using accessories to entirely recreate an every-day outfit. We may be feeling a little out of pocket thanks to all the socialising, gifts and expenses the festive season demanded of us. Therefore, we can all agree that now is not the time to waste money on multiple new pieces of clothing. Instead, why not revamp the ones you already own? That LBD will do just fine, or even a plain black jumper and skirt. Then, throw a spanner in the works and bedazzle them with a sparkly finish. These Hey Happiness Cluster Huggie Earrings and Gemstone Fireworks Necklace are the perfect way to spruce-up a pre-existing outfit.

The Appropriately Glamourous Finish 

What’s more, the option of spotlighting your accessories is also a foolproof way to be appropriately glamourous. For example, you may not want to attend an event in head-to-toe glitz if you’re unsure of the unspoken dress-code. If this is the case, opt for a refined outfit and throw on a pair of sparkly accessories such as these Radiant drop earrings and Floret Charm necklace from Hey Happiness. This way, you can wear a touch of sparkle without missing the mark.

There you have it. Make proper use of accessories to brighten-up those post-festive blues! Discover the elegant pearl for a sophisticated style, the dainty diamonté for a complimentary dazzle or some sparkling sets to steal the show. Whatever you choose, look no further than the Hey Happiness range of gorgeous jewellery to put the perfect finishing touch on your outfit.
