Accessories are a powerful tool to be used in fashion. They can elevate your outfit, transform from day to night, and add personal and unique flair to your looks.

Now is a perfect time to start maximising the use of accessories in your wardrobe and with spring officially here, we can expect warmer weather (fingers crossed!) and longer days. From statement jewellery to dainty scarves, trendy trainers to scrunchies, we discuss how best to accessorise for spring.


Spring is a great time to invest in a new pair of trainers. With the end of March marking the New Year in many cultures, why not put your best foot forward and treat yourself to something cute?


This spring, our adoration for all things Adidas knows no bounds. The classic and youthful silhouette of the likes of Sambas, Spezials and Gazelles make for a timeless shoe. Whether you prefer a monochrome Samba, or fancy embracing colour this spring with a Green Spezial, these elegant slim-line shoes create a perfect, effortless look for everyday life in spring. Plus, TOTUM members get 15% discount on selected items at Adidas!

Another shoe we love for spring is a good ol’ pair of chunky loafers. Paired with some neat white socks, a mini skirt, cute tee and oversized faux leather bomber jacket, you’re giving preppy perfection! These loafers from Schuh are perfectly proportioned – they offer a substantial amount of chunkiness while retaining their iconic shape. Check them out at Schuh and be sure to remember you get 10% off with your TOTUM membership.

If you’re unsure what heels are in this spring, we’ve got you covered. Pointed toe kitten heels are what’s hot.

This vintage-looking shoe is graceful and delicate, not to mention easier to walk in! Try worn with some long baggy jeans, so the dainty pointed toe peeks through, or with sheer stockings and mini knitted shorts.

To save yourself money and bag some authentic heels, have a look on Vinted. Alternatively, we love these Topshop Eden buckle detail painted mid heel court shoe in black croc, found online at ASOS. Don’t forget, TOTUM members save 10% at ASOS.


You might not think of your socks as an accessory, but hear us out – it's the little details that really make your whole look pop. Plus, as the weather gets warmer and you start showing more leg, a cute pair of socks can make all the difference in completing your outfit. Heard of the ubiquitous coquette aesthetic? This trend emphasises a feminine, romantic, vintage and soft style, favouring ribbons, frills, bows and light colours and textures.


So, it’s no surprise that frilly socks are in this spring. This adorable pair from River Island come in 6 colours, but we love the white ones. Got primary school nostalgia? These cute socks would pair perfectly with the Adidas trainers discussed above, as well as the loafers. Give these a go and get yours at River Island, where TOTUM members enjoy 10% off!


If you want to add a sporty element to your look, and want a trusty and versatile everyday sock, go for these Nike socks from JD. Adding a sporty sock to your outfit is a well-known fashion tip, with its origins lying somewhere with Princess Diana back in the ‘90s, and more recently found at the feet of supermodels Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber.

It’s an easy and cheap way to elevate your fit. You can enjoy a cheeky 10% off online at JD Sports with TOTUM.

Hair Accessories

Hair accessories are a great way to keep things playful this spring, not to mention their practicality! First, having a pack of these essential headbands in a couple of neutral colours is an effortless way to switch up your outfits. Radiating Y2K, they’re both fashionable and functional. Try these from Amazon to make accessorising affordable!

Back to the coquette aesthetic, it’s no surprise that we're loving the oversized scrunchie trend for this spring. Good Squish scrunchies have been having their moment since last summer, but their popularity continues to rise, and for good reason!

These huge scrunchies add both drama and quaintness to your outfit and can make throwing up any bad hair day decadent. Many variations of the glorious Good Squish can be purchased at RRP of £24-£65, but fear not we have some lovely, more affordable alternatives for you.

ASOS have a great selection of Reclaimed Vintage scrunchies which well resemble a Good Squish for a fraction of the price. They come in various colours, we love the cream one. If you want a more dramatic look and a pop of colour, this My Accessories oversized stripe scrunchie in pink for only £10 is perfect. Remember to use your ASOS discount of 10% with TOTUM, to make big savings whilst you shop.


Another good way to accessorise your hair this spring is to add ribbons. These are cheap, convenient and accessible for everyone! Try finding them in your local fabric shop. You can try tying these into little bows at the bottom of plaits, or at the top of ponytails for a preppy flair.


In terms of jewellery, you can’t go wrong with keeping it simple. A classic hoop earring should be a staple found in any jewellery collection; you can have multiple pairs and switch up the texture, metal, size and thickness to have a pair for every occasion and mood. We love these chunky silver hoop style earrings, available online at ASOS.


A necklace that’s very on-trend at the moment is a black cord pendant necklace, with some sort of silver circular swirl in the middle. This one from Weekday is the perfect statement necklace, bound to catch everyone’s attention.

Try paring this with a top with a deeper neckline to accentuate the jewellery. TOTUM members save 20% at Weekday, so you can make savings on your next shop!

Another popular style is cross jewellery. Try this simple cross diamante necklace from PrettyLittleThing for a subtle everyday look. We also love these cross statement earrings for a bit of drama for your next evening out! TOTUM members save 25% sitewide at PLT!


In terms of bags, an oversized tote is perfect for spring. Whether you’re travelling to uni or soaking up the rays and having a picnic with friends at your local park, this bag is perfect for holding all your essentials whilst keeping you looking cool! There’s also a similar one available in black if you want something fully neutral. Make big savings at boohoo with TOTUM!


Red leather (or pleather in our case) is a timeless accessory. They add a pop of colour to your outfit and ooze sophistication and style. This Public Desire slouchy bag in cherry red is a fantastic addition to your spring wardrobe. It can easily transition from a daytime look to a nighttime look due to its glamorous vibe.


Scarves in spring? Okay, hear us out. We aren’t talking the thick and warm ones your Nan knits you for Christmas. Rather the lightweight kind which adds detail and a sense of chicness to your look. Again, ASOS is where it’s at for these cute spring scarves! This beautiful shimmery silver one would work well for a night out, whilst this chiffon ruffle one is the perfect spring daytime accessory.
