I'm not ashamed to admit that I spent copious amounts of time on Instagram, mainly because I can justify it as research for my job. I consider it my duty to bring you the latest wares as they happen, and I relish in finding new stylish people to follow and fresh labels to buy.
My favourite thing, however, is rediscovering brands that have fallen off of my peripheral and falling back in love with them all over again, and that's exactly what happened with Accessorize. That's right—the place where you bought keyrings in bulk for your BFFs and likely your first grown-up camisole-and-pants set.
Its recent success started when the brand's pearl hair slides—an homage to Simone Rocha or Shrimps' considerably more expensive originals—gained cult status amongst those in the know in the summer of 2018. Accessorize has since proved, however, that it's more than just a one-trick pony.
Naturally, its hair accessory department is consistently strong (I personally own the Alice band and the diamanté hair clips), but I've also clocked influencers wearing other Accessorize pieces on repeat—think scarves, sunglasses and bags.
