If you’re a colour/print/embellishment prude, let our top five quirky picks take you out of your comfort zone, without looking silly!
A smattering of raffia tassels here and an animated pout there; here are five crazy, quirky and partially bonkers pieces we want to wear right now.
Statement sweatshirts have reigned supreme over the fashion scene for some time now, and were totally digging this Zebra Sequin Embellished one from high street favourite, River Island. Give it a grown up edge by wearing with an asymmetric mini and white pumps.

Forget demure studs and go all monochrome earlobes on your accessory-drobe this season, by investing in these fun clip-on earrings from Marni. We say brave the boardroom in an all-black look wearing these beauties for some serious boss brownie points! Available at My Theresa.
The best partner for pepping up a classic white t-shirt, you ask? Why, a flippy pleated mini splashed in a fizzy retro wallpaper print, of course! Available at Topshop.
