Hey Accessorizers,

The safety of our store stylists and you are so important to us, which is why our staff will continue to wear face coverings as we encourage you to do the same. 

We’re keeping other safety measures in place, such as enhanced cleaning methods and sanitiser in store for everyone. 

We’re always open at and we have everything you need for stylish summer. 

Be kind to yourself and others, 

Team Accessorize x

Change & Check This Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Somehow it’s already October and that means Pumpkin Spice Lattes, darker nights and Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

While we encourage getting up close and personal with breast checks all year round, this month we are taking part in the Change & Check campaign. This life-saving campaign is all about learning what changes to check for (hence the name!)

It was set up by Helen Addis (also know as @thetittygritty), who is the Features Editor for Lorraine ITV, after her own experience being diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer.

Change & Check

Helen discovered people didn’t really know what to look for when they were checking their breasts, so she created a handy guide which you can download here  – don’t forget to share it with your family and friends.

Dr Hilary has also shared his step-by-step guide to checking your breasts – you can watch via the ITV website.

Signs and symptoms to look for:

Visible changes in shape or size.
Skin changes such as; dimpling, puckering or rash around the nipple.
Lumps or bumps.
Bloody discharge from the nipple.

How to check:

Sit comfortably in front of a mirror with hands on your hips so chest muscles are relaxed.

Firstly, look at the contour of the breast to check that it matches on each side and see if there is any puckering or dimpling.

Look for any change in the nipple such as a rash, indrawing or pulling in.

Look for any skin change all around the nipple.

Using the fingers of your left hand to examine the right breast, walk your middle three fingers around the breast. You’re feeling for any abnormal lumps or bumps or any irregularity that hasn’t been there before.

Divide the breast into four quarters.

Start on the inner upper quarter, walking those fingers around the breast.

Do the same on the lower inner quarter and then across to the lower right quarter and then the upper right quarter.

Walk fingers up to the tail of the breast in the armpit.

Walk your fingers back to the areola around the nipple.

Repeat steps above on the left breast, using your right hand to do so.

Dr Hilary advises that menstruating women check their breasts following their period each month. For menopausal and post-menopausal women, pick a date each month that suits you.

If you notice anything unusual, see your doctor or nurse as soon as possible. Early diagnosis could mean a better chance of successful treatment.

Your Guide To Healing Stones

Crystals and healing stones have been used for years – inspiring and encouraging wearers to take what they need for a happier and healthier life. Though there is no scientific backing, their popularity continues to rise and it’s no surprise they’re called for everyday wear – enter, healing stone jewellery.

Instead of carrying crystals or healing stones around in your pockets, you can wear them on your sleeve – literally. 

Accessorize healing stone jewelleryPart of our Z by Accessorize collection, our healing stone jewellery range features beautiful semi-precious stones in gold-plated rings, necklaces and bracelets. 

Each stone is believed to have its own healing abilities for the mind, body and soul. Whether that’s promoting the flow of good energies, such as love, courage and strength or the support to face negative energy, such as change, fear and general negativity. 

Whether you think it’s ‘woo-woo’ or worthy of time and space in your collection – there’s something nice about having extra special meaning behind your jewellery. And at the moment, we could all do with a little extra support of good energy, right?!

5 ways you can spark positive change​

In times of great uncertainty, it’s even important to go the extra mile for yourself and others. To bring a little brightness to the day or make a difference. 

We asked our team some of the things they do – or have had done for them – that make them feel like they’re sparking a positive change.

message a friend 

“A few weeks ago I received a message out of the blue from a friend telling me how much she appreciated me. It was like a modern-day love letter and it made me feel so grateful for the people in my life.”

Let your girls and guys know how much they mean to you with a simple message. We’ve even started some for you!

I appreciate you because …
I’ll never forget that time we …
Thank you for always …


learn something new

“I recently taught myself how to do macrame – it’s so relaxing and you get some cool pieces afterwards. It made me appreciate all of the things my Gran knitted me so much more, the time those ‘ugly’ jumpers must have taken …”

Learning something new is not only fun (and educational, obviously), but it can also give you a new appreciation and outlook on life.

Grab your besties and pick up a new book, shop for some new crafts, listen to a new podcast or sign up for an online course!


recycle used accessories

“Like most of us, I have a lot of accessories…while most are used season after season to update my look, there’s been times I don’t want them (or can’t fit them in my collection) anymore. I’ve started to donate these pieces,  it made me feel good knowing I’d given the accessory a new life and made a conscious choice!”

You can pop into your local Accessorize to donate your used accessories and will send them to New Life


buy some plants

“I became a new plant mum during lockdown and bringing nature inside has made a massive difference to A) the look of my room and B) how I feel –  indoor plants have proven health benefits  – plus it’s satisfying keeping them alive!” 

Studies have shown plants can boost mood, productivity, concentration and creativity – all of which are so important now that our homes have become our offices. Best get shopping.


send a surprise gift to someone

“The doorbell went one day and the postie handed me a parcel I wasn’t expecting (I originally thought I’d ordered it in my last shopping spree and forgotten…) But it was a gift from my bestie. It brightened my mood for the rest of the day and was nice knowing she’d seen something and thought of me.”

Give your friends or family some excitement and send them a special gift. The more personal and thoughtful, the better – think a zodiac necklace or initial jewellery. Plus, science has actually proven we get great pleasure from giving, and we feel even happier when spending money on others. Win-win!

Top 5 New Normal Accessories You Need

Phone, keys…face covering and anti-bac. Our ‘can’t leave the house without’ list has grown in light of current circumstances – and there are many new normal accessories that can make your new every day easy and stylish.


micro bags

Whether you wear it alone or pair with your other bags, a micro bag is as fashionable as it is practical. It’s also the perfect home for your face coverings and anti-bac, so you can just grab and go.


drink bottle

Whether you’re going to the hairdressers (finally) or getting a much-needed mani (yay) it’s important to take your own drink, so you may as well do it in a cool and eco-conscious way!



The number one thing we’re starting to learn is the less you can touch, the better. As most stores go cashless, it’s only necessary to have your cards with you – ideally easily accessible. 


comfy shoes

While comfort has always been important – yay for sports luxe – it’s even more necessary now as many of us opt for longer walks opposed to public transport. Put your best foot forward in comfortable sneakers and flip flops.


face coverings 

We’ve created a range of face coverings to keep you safe and stylish. Pick a pattern or colour that expresses your personality – matching accessories optional!


Wear it right 

Wash your hands or use hand sanitiser every time you put the face covering, snood or gloves on or off. Store them in a plastic bag until you wash them.


Use the ear loop ties to put the face covering on and off and avoid touching your face. Refrain from adjusting your mask once it’s on.


Remove safely by grabbing the glove at the wrist, avoiding touching your bare skin. Peel it away from the body and turn inside out. Remove the second glove by putting your fingers inside the glove at the wrist and peel away, turning it inside out.

3 Ways To Wear Pearl Jewellery

We’ve been obsessed with pearl jewellery from the moment we dressed up with our mum’s string of pearls as a child. Once a classic look worn by royals or at 1920s dress-ups, pearls have found their place in modern jewellery boxes. And they aren’t going anywhere!

The pearl is sophisticated, stylish and timeless. They’re ideal for embracing effortless dressing.

Whether you adorn your locks with pearl clips or make the classic pearl necklace look your own, there are countless ways to embrace this oh-so-cool trend. 


classically chic pearls

Pearls had a reputation of being the kind of piece your nana dons with her Sunday best – nana was a trendsetter! Now they’ve had a modern makeover, but that doesn’t mean you can’t embrace the classic side of the look. Think elegant studs, simple slides and one show-stopping pearl pendant.  


modern muse

Welcome to the new era of pearls – where simple strings have had a makeover. Pearls are now adorning any and every piece in our collection, from statement Baroque pearl earrings in our Z range, with gold-plated finishings, to stylish options that embrace more is more.


crowning glory

Last year was the year of the pearl hair clip – a fresh blow dry with a single pearl clip and you were set. While that’s still a popular choice – one we don’t see going anywhere anytime soon – this season it’s all about more. Whether that’s bold pearl headbands or stacks of pearl style. Don’t be shy, add more!

5 Of The Best Summer Accessories Of 2020

Looking for some new summer accessories to brighten up your wardrobe? We’ve been watching Instagram, parks and SS20 runways and it’s pretty clear these are the best and brightest trends of summer 2020.

Whether you’re planning a staycation, looking forward to a simple pint in the pub or making your backyard tanning next-level cool, you need these summer accessories.

Straw hats & visors 

Sunsmart and stylish, a straw hat is a perfect way to achieve effortless summer glam, that’s a little House on the Prairie and a lot it-girl. Fancy something different? Try a visor – it’s a ’90s trend we didn’t expect to see again and now are obsessed with, of course. 


Shell necklaces 

Remember the days of collecting shells on the beach and threading them onto whatever ribbon/chain/rope you could find? Well here’s the grownup version of that, the ultimate beach babe look. We’ll be wearing all the shell jewellery we possibly can to make us feel like we’re on a tropical beach.


Cat-eye sunglasses

They’re cool, they’re sunsmart and they really don’t seem to be going anywhere. Cat-eye sunglasses are an easy way to bring effortless style to your look while getting a dose of vitamin-D. Pick the perfect pair for you in different colours and sizes. 


Bucket hats

If you’d told me a few years ago that I’d be coveting a polka dot bucket hat, I would have laughed at you. A style I had put in the ‘only looks cute on kids’, bucket hats are now the summer accessories must-have (and I want one too!)


Straw totes

What else yells ‘summer’ like a straw tote, jammed with your suncream, chick-lit and beach towel…answer: nothing! So, while summer plans may look different – bring the spirit of beach getaways and coconut smelling sunscreen with a straw tote.

You can stay up to date with information on where and when we will be opening here.

Ahead of reopening, here’s what you can expect when shopping in-store with us:

  • – Limit on how many people can be in store
    – Signage to help maintain 2 metre social distance with screens at the tills
  • – We kindly request items are not tried on, any that are will be placed in isolation for 72 hours
  • – Deep clean at both the start and end of the day
  • – Touchpoints cleaned every 30 minutes and till points cleaned after each customer
  • – Sanitiser available for all customers and staff
  • – Our preference is for cashless payment, with a new limit of £45 for contactless card payments

Freshen Up Your Hair, No Hairdresser Needed

Just because you’re staying in, doesn’t mean your accessories (and hair) can’t stand out – so the most stylish members of Team Accessorize are sharing their styling tips.


First up, here’s Henna with 3 easy looks to keep your quarantine hair looking fresh.

zoom happy hour

Anyone else lost track of the Zoom happy hours, and meetings, they’ve attended?! We sure have. Look your best on your next call with little effort by taking inspo from Henna’s double clip look. Embrace your natural hair or go all out and curl your locks.

If you’re shying away from heat tools to give you hair a much-needed break, Henna suggests plaiting damp hair and leaving overnight. The next morning you’ll have dreamy waves.


garden glam

As warmer weather graces us with its presence we’re dreaming of the days where we’d dress up to head to the pub or the park. Instead of missing out, we’re popping on our favourite summer dresses and taming our manes with new season headbands. Bonus points for taking selfies like Henna, after all, the rare moments of glam need to be documented!


nine to thrive

First, we were asking if sweatpants were acceptable work attire and now we’re turning up to our desks in bikinis and activewear and calling it dressing up for work (hey, we put clothes on after all!)

Ensure your top half is fresh and fancy with an easy updo, complete with an on-trend scrunchie. The best part is this ’90s must-have takes the attention from the fact you haven’t washed your hair in a few days…

How To Enjoy Summer Activities At Home

The days are longer and sunnier and we are dreaming of picnics, festivals and outdoor cinemas. Just because summer looks a little different than anticipated, doesn’t mean these things are cancelled. We just have to get … creative.

With a little preparation (and a super cute outfit) you can be dancing in the sun all day long, watching your favourite film under the stars and sipping on Pimms while Serena Williams dances on the court.


Let’s start simple with a picnic – a chance to eat all the delicious summer goodies while lazing in the sun and reading a good book.  The good news is that you can still do this! Either pop your blanket in the garden or on the patio or take a trip to the park. (following the rules, please!)

If you miss your friends, why not do it all together (over Zoom, of course). Share some of your fave recipes and maybe take it one step further reading the same book.


Ah, the event of the summer for many. There are few things more fun than dancing and singing to music you love with your besties. Well, the good news is you can still do this! Create a shared playlist on Spotify, or YouTube if you fancy music videos, pop on Zoom and have a festival dance party.  Don’t forget to dress up, cause that’s one of the best parts of the day, right?!

Make it even more authentic by lining up outside the toilet for at least 5 minutes!


As one of the most anticipated sporting occasions of the summer, Wimbledon is also an excuse to show off your sophisticated style, and why should you miss out!? Pop on some tennis (YouTube is handy), grab some fresh strawberries and cream, make a Pimms and put on your winning outfit.

Don’t forget your Wimbledon-essential Panama Hat.

Outdoor cinema

Watching a film you love under the stars is pretty damn special! So, do it at home. Get together all your blankets and pillows, pop some popcorn and get the projector set up. If you don’t have a projector, just huddle around your laptop.
