A great outfit is all about finishing touches and as every savvy shopper knows, a well chosen accessory is the simplest (and most economic way) to bring your wardrobe staples up to date. There was plenty of inspiration during the recent Spring/Summer 2015 fashion weeks and we plan to start trying out the trends right now.
The statement cuff bracelet made a comeback of heroic proportions, and was enthusiastically employed by everyone from Raf Simons at Dior to Phoebe Philo at Celine. Aviator sunglasses were another classic that received a 2015 revamp, and looked especially chic when paired with a 1970s silhouettes. Tom Ford will be pleased.
There were also interesting developments when it came to handbags. Gone were the oversized minimal totes and in their place appeared classic ladylike styles downsized to dinky proportions. Impractical yes, but perfect if you're looking for some time-out from your iPhone/makeup bag/wallet. The trend was seen everywhere from House of Holland to Fendi, but with it was Chanel's "votez coco" mini box bag that got our, er, vote. Print was also a big deal, and a plethora of styles were adorned with dazzling florals.
If all this sounds too faddy and you're looking for an investment bag to take you from winter to spring and beyond, we have two words of sage fashion advice: mock croc.
Take a look at the biggest trends from the S/S 2015 shows below.
