A world of accessories! It’s not quite spring yet but it’s getting ever so tricky to resist the temptation to try out some new colours and clothes! Well, until spring is well and truly sprung, you can console yourself with some fantastic accessories instead of just piling on multicoloured clothing to cheer up a dreary day. Only 4 has absolutely loads to choose from, but one particularly special must-have for this season that will bring serious pizazz to even the most serious of looks is the bohemian-look flower headband, a trend that Hollywood’s leading ladies have taken a shine to.

Another accessory adopted from traditional Arab culture to become a cult and omnipresent accessory is the Keffiyeh. You’ll find the plain and patterned versions both in The Store, two great options to liven up the simplest of combos.
