Accessories are a piece of fashion that I think are the best thing to invest in. They are completely versatile and can be used to compliment any outfit, whether it’s day or night, casual or smart. They are the pieces that pull a look together and ultimately add interest and detail to every inch of your outfit. My favourite ones have to be a classic handbag, as there is not only so many beautiful ones out there, they are also an essential for any woman, as otherwise you would have no where to carry your go-to items. I also love a great shoe, as they really elevate your look and makes sure that you look good even down to your toes. Jewellery is also another one of my favourite accessories too, its so dainty and delicate, and I love wearing pieces that have a special meaning to me.
So, if you’re looking to invest in some new accessories, ready for Autumn/Winter 2018, there’s four key trends that are owning the high-street and catwalks this season…
Velvet was so popular a few years ago, and now it’s come back with a bang. It’s the material that not only has a beautiful texture, but also looks amazing in so many different colours. If you pick a light colour, like this one on this nude block heel, you get a really feminine and girly look to your accessory. However, if you choose a darker navy colour, like the boots in the first image, you get a more autumnal and luxury vibe.
The one thing that velvet always gives is the ability to look beautiful for an evening out, but also lift and add texture to an every outfit too. No matter what you choose to have velvet in, it always looks expensive and adds an instant statement to any look.
It’s All About The Pearls
This season pearls are everywhere, whether it’s through the classic pearl earring or necklace,they’re also a key embellishment on handbags, shoes and also clothing as well. What I love about pearls is that they have always been so elegant and chic. Every older lady seems to have a classic pair of pearl earrings and a necklace, and that shows how timless they really are. They pair perfectly with anything, and instanly add a tocuh of classic glam and make your outfit look that bit more put together.
Pearls come in all different shapes and varieties, depending on your own taste and and you favourite colours. However, this year the classic white and cream pearls seem to be the colour of choice, as they pair with any other colour and also really stand out against darker colours. If you’re looking for some beautiful pearl accessories, ASOS would be a great place to have a browse. They have an amazing range of jewellery pieces, as well as handbags and also clothing pieces too.
Black & White = Monochrome
Black and White has been a classic for as long as we can remember, and only recently have we decided that it’s about time it got an official name. So, monochrome it is.
Monochrome is actually one of my favourite colour palettes and ways to dress, as it’s so chic and really channels the icon Coco Chanel. I love how you can wear it no matter what situation and you always look pulled together, chic and extremely fashionable. So, its a natural thing that I also love monochrome accessories too, as they literally go with everything!
However, this year it’s not about choosing a black or white accessory, it’s about having block colours highly featured in the design. Such as this Christian Dior flat bottomed bag. It’s all about taking two classic colours and mixing them in different patterns or designs to create a chic, yet on trend accessory.
Silky Head Scarves
The trend is one of my favourites for the whole season, as silky scarves have always been a love of mine. I just love the way they add such a luxurious, rich feel to your outfit and that you can wear them in so many ways. Whether it’s a head scarf, which is super big this season, as an accessory to your bag handles or as a traditional scarf around your neck, and even then there’s lots of different ways to style it.
This year it’s all about the wearing the scarf on your head, and making hair accessories fashionable again. You could wear it in the traditional way, around your head and tied in a gorgeous bow, or you could tie it around your bobble on your classic ponytail, or even wrap in your hair, through a plait.
