Low maintenance style guide: quirky accessories

I like my style to be low maintenance. Apart from occasions that warrant a bit of extra effort (I’ll put nights out in this bracket) I like clothes that work together easily and don’t look like they try too hard. The kind of low maintenance style that is perfect for day to day may include jeans, slouchy knitwear and other simple-yet-chic separates, so the key to making it work is to add a little something extra. A statement piece that can be the centrepiece of your laidback look, create conversation and remind everyone that, yes, you are still stylish (it’s not just that you couldn’t be bothered today). Quirky accessories are just perfect for this, and here’s some inspiration:
