One fatal error many trend adopters make is to suddenly turn into fashion victims and forget they should be adapting runway pieces to day-to-day activities. Therefore, the result is not an impeccable look, but a wannabe fashionista looking amusing to the haute couture connoisseur. And since we want you to avoid such a tragic demise, we bring you the accessory must haves for this season!
The secret to standing out this season doesn’t lie in bright colors, but in neutral tones. So switch your hot pink stilettos for nude ones; heads will still turn, mind you, but your innate sexiness will have the benefit of an elegant choice. Cat-eye sunglasses are back in town, and if you go for a nude frame, you’ll be queen. We promise.
If you’re one that goes for delicate and feminine, accessories and you dreaded the statement necklaces and over the top bracelets, we have good news for you! Your size of choice in accessories won’t shame you in the eyes of trendsetters if you decide to pledge your allegiance to rose gold in terms of jewelry. Watches look stately in this material, and if you decide to wear them, so will you!
Bucket & Drawstring Bags
Clutches are no longer the focal point- this season is all about bucket & drawstring bag. Sizable and laid back, this bag will reign and not just because it fulfills its utility function flawlessly. There are so many patterns, textures and colors available that it doesn’t matter if you’re a rock diva or a dreamy hippie- we’ve got you covered!
Poison Ivy Pearls
Pearls are always appropriate; you just have to choose the right type. We’re not talking about Coco Chanel’s signature look or Margaret Thatcher’s double pearl necklace. We’re talking necklaces made of tiny, colorful pearls, organic in shape and color. It’s as if poison ivy lovingly clung to you or a froth of delicate beads sumptuously adorns your neckline.
Fur & Calf Hair
If you opt for a more conventional purse, the fabric must be unconventional this summer! Which is precisely why instead of choosing leather, fur or Calf Hair should be your fabrics of choice. It’s a little unorthodox, just enough to turn a clutch from zero to hero and give your look a groovy vibe.
Celine says we should go for artsy cuffs – painted colorfully, in organic, irregular shapes, bordering surrealism. To this, we add thin cuffs with celestial motifs that you can wear tight up your arm or let gently dance around your wrist. Worn from wrist to elbow, they are the fundamental element of an audacious look.
Then there’s Alexander McQueen with his pervasive rock vibe, who makes the bold proposition of replacing Roman sandals with warrior gold cuffs this year. Opulent, heavy and highly decorative, they are a remnant of statement accessories.
If this is too much for you, ear cuffs are a mild alternative and a way of faking multiple ear piercings without the pain involved, while being in tune with the latest trends!
