We don’t mean to push summer out the door, but with the wave of newness flocking to our wardrobes we’re feeling more ready for the new season than ever. As style updates go, our three new accessory trends for AW18 give the quickest injection of fashion’s new mood. Is your future orange or somewhere in the animal kingdom? These must-haves know the answer.
1. Modern Retro
The retro starlet is rethought for AW18 with a modern take on her iconic accessories. Cat-eye sunglasses are clear winners in a transparent frame (with a touch of tortoiseshell raising the trend stakes) and circle bags have the feel of cool-girl classics in new, blown-up proportions. A set of hoops is all you need to round off the Hollywood look, and if you’re over the sleek metal pairs of season’s past then our resin earrings will surely reignite the spark.
2. Burnt Orange
We’re finding it hard to let go of summer’s brights, which is why we’re falling in love with burnt orange as the seasons change. Warm and autumnal but still with a kick on the colour chart, this spicy hue is perfect on handbags for a look that’s way more versatile than you’d think. Try a block-colour scarf when the temperatures dip or add statement power to your jewellery box with orange tassel earrings.
3. Animal Print
Answer the call of the wild with a helping of the season’s most sough-after print: leopard. This trend lends itself so well to the accessories, adding just a pop of attitude whenever you need it. Get major wear out of a silky, lightweight scarf – tie it into your hair for an on-trend outfit detail or team it with your go-to tote – or else choose printed arm candy with animal magnetism.
