Emma wears Colour Pop
Emma Breschi, image maker and model, is crushin’ on colour pop this season, mixing vibrant shades with bold accessories for the ultimate style clash-up. Bringing a burst of brightness to AW17, bags come in stand-out saturations of fuschia, mustard and blue, with cosy winter warmers (including berets – v Eurostar) following suite. Bigger is better when it comes to jewellery, with statement earrings sealing the deal with supersized proportions and punchy pops of colour.
Felicity wears 80’s Gold
Felicity Hayward, plus-size model and body positive campaigner, is giving us all the glam-girl feels with the 80’s gold trend. From statement hoop earrings and chunky chain necklaces to stacking rings to make ‘em stare, these retro-cool jewels are jumping on the high-shine hype with added side of sparkle. Clutch bags are also turning up the glitz with glimmering glitters that were made for all-night parties with the girl gang.
Kate wears Animal
Keeping it fierce for AW17, singer Kate Stewart is pouncing on the animal print trend for the season ahead, making the fash pack classic her own with mega new deets. Think luxe leather prints on XXS mini bags, must-have shoes and the hottest hair accessories, plus stand-out snakeskin in contrast colours and color-block designs. The new season just got wild.
Tinea wears Clean Silver
Clean silver is the name of the game for presenter and DJ Tinea Taylor. Making a case for max-out metallics, this mega babe is getting on the trend with glossy silver jewels in chunky shapes and barely-there designs, all made to be mixed and matched. Backpacks are also getting in on space-age styling with liquid silver textures, while cold weather winners play it a little more low-key with muted wintery palettes.
Elizabeth wears Vintage Vibes
The vintage trend is giving us all the old-school Hollywood feels this season, and artist Elizabeth Ilsley is firmly on board. Jewellery takes on a heirloom vibe with luxe stones and faux pearls, and antique-inspired designs, and chokers get extra-swish with velvet textures and treasure-forever charms. When it comes to winter warmers, faux fur tippets in sumptuous jewel tones are the only way to go. Movie star, coming though.
Millie wears Disco Sparkle
Glisten to this – Millie Hailes, photographer and director, is giving disco sparkle the go-ahead for AW17, ramping up the fancy factor with her pick of party-girl accessories. Statement earrings, chunky chokers and rings get their glam on with so-extra embellishments, while clutch bags are hot on their heels with glitter, sequins and jaw-dropping gemstones.
