Christian Dior had once said, “The less you can afford for your frocks, the more care you must take with your accessories.”
They can either make a great wardrobe staple, and turn any black knitted sweater into the most stylish piece… or they can spoil the entire look if matched in the wrong way. That’s why it’s definitely worth studying your accessories more carefully than just focusing on your clothing.
Accessories are of great importance. Let’s take a look at what will be trending this season:
From teeny-tiny cuffs to delicate bracelets, the minimalist pieces are more than just basic jewellery. They are subtle yet sophisticated, which makes them perfect for forming a variety of stylish looks, and they create a simple and modern silhouette. These delicate cuties will carry you through any occasion in style.
Bring on the brooches
Brooches are back and designers are pretty passionate about them this season. Not only are they experimenting with various shapes and sizes, but we’re also being offered unexpected new places to attach them. From classic stones on blazer lapels to multiple brooches attached to the collar – a brooch adds an instant elegance and edge to any look.
These bold beauties are back, as evidenced by the Spring/Summer 2016 runways, and are certainly on our radar. When it comes to statement earrings, bigger is definitely better. But apart from the classic oversized sets, choose from the trending futuristic designs, sculptural earrings and long pairs in all shades of rainbow colours. The beauty of statement earrings is that the right pair can make any basic look stand out.
Choker meets long necklace
We’ve already revealed some ways of how to wear the choker necklace – 2016’s biggest jewellery trend of 2016. A choker looks amazing when paired with a simple minimalist long necklace or some layering pieces. Each a different length and decoration, they can be mixed and matched. Layer up these pieces to create a beautiful chaos. This combo looks more than perfect against the weightless button downs or low necklines.
SS16 fashion shows prove that the idea of asymmetrical or mismatched earrings is on trend. Some earrings differ from each other in small details or shades, while others are designed in completely different styles. Earrings can be mixed and matched, and this trend can be quite practical, especially if you tend to lose them. Don’t hesitate to opt for earrings that are one-sided. Combine a massive oversized earring with a teeny-tiny cuff, or a hoop earring with a minimalist stud to stand out.
The bohemian themes and motifs are rocking the fashion world. The free-spirited mood is reflected in pieces made in sterling silver and antique gold. Hand-pieces, hoop and stud earrings, delicate pendants and rings… you can choose one of these for a bohemian feel, but why have only one when you can have many? Layer up with rings of different sizes and shapes on all fingers or pull together a couple of necklaces that are bringing out a laid back bohemian look.
