Some people adhere to the philosophy that you should take one thing off before you leave the house; others in the opposing camp say you should add one thing. It really comes down to the type of person you are, whether you have a tendency to go overboard, or whether you’re more inclined to be too timid in your accessorising.

Working out which you are can help in striking that perfect balance. Enough accessories to make an outfit interesting, yet not so many that it becomes a jumble. Here’s an example of the balancing act being walked with precision.

Quirky street style

The outfit is kept simple enough: a high waisted skirt and crop top being one of spring’s winning combinations. A quirky mix of tartan cross-body bag, houndstooth sunglasses, colourful jewellery and a pom-pom hat are enough but not too much. And leaving no detail unattended, there’s also the multi-coloured nails.
