Whilst our eyes are darting from magazines to catwalk edits, stealing glances at what’s hot for this approaching season, we find ourselves being ignorant to those little yet crucial details that hold and lifts an outfit. It’s those accessories that can help an outfit express one’s personal style. The spring and summer collections for 2014 invite us to let our vibrant voices shine through.
Pastel’s favourite accessory
Pastel tones to join us throughout spring and summer and the delicate looks created with these colours can be complimented with midi rings. Feel free to stack this accessory with several different shapes available, from the infinity sign to a wishbone shape. This accessory that helps to complete this colour palette can be found in various high street stores from Topshop to Urban Outfitters.
How to tame your mane
Hair accessories always get lost and forgotten about, even though they have the ability to add that impact to an outfit that could originally lack creativity. Something so simple and affordable is a great styling tool. It started off with the old- school scrunchie last summer and this year we’re seeing even more old- school hair accessories, such as a simple bow, either in the form of a grip or in the form of a head scarf, tied around to help tame our manes into an up do. These can be found in Accessorise or American Apparel and are again affordable and are ideal for one who doesn’t want to stop with the midi rings when accessorising your pastel ensemble.
Let’s have a party on your arm!
If delicate jewellery isn’t your forte and blocks of bright colours shout out to you, then this accessory will appeal to you. Think chunky, think primary colours and think anything but minimal. Let your creative and imaginative minds flow and allow your brightly coloured items of clothing to work with your arm candy. Choose chunky stacked bangles for spring and summer 2014.
Beads and tassels galore
The warmer seasons are fast approaching and festival wear is back on the fashion radar. An event originally for the talented musicians and fans, we now welcome specific trends that have become uniform for a festival attire such as copious amounts of textures, materials and warm tones. This year, accessories with beads or tassels help to create that ideal festival ensemble. So don’t leave the beads, tassels and warm tones behind, make sure they’re part of your wardrobe and accessories collections.
Practical and ideal: the rucksack
This industry enjoys a challenge and every year we see the industry challenging the traditional stereotypes of what is portrayed as feminine and masculine. Let the practical rucksack into your wardrobe to complete the sports luxe look this season. It might not scream feminine, but we cannot deny this trusty accessory as realistically, what other bag could offer such a chic way of being able to carry round our heavy folders for a day spent on campus?
