New trends can be embodied in accessories; why disregard last years outfits when you can update them and this season there are plenty to choose from. For this collage I have gone for burgundy and black as they are key colours this season. This AW’12 the mood boards are Gothic yet with rich autumnal berry colouring, studded leather and jewel encrusted. Furs are also big again this autumn-winter and is predominant in accessories; fur bags and collars are must-haves.
If you are to buy only one new accessory this year, make it studded! Stud embellished black leather needs to be in your wardrobe this season whether it be on a belt, bag, clutch or even a cuff or collar, the choices are out there both on the high street and designer.
Collars were staples in the AW’12, many metallic and embellished gold. The fur collar even takes over from last years fur stoles. Bolo style necklaces are also big especially on the high street and this designer long tassel necklace by Lanvin is sure to add to any outfit. Add an embellished statement collar or long gold tassel necklaces to basic knits this winter.
Bags go big this season with oversized doctor’s bags and bowling bags as seen in Louis Vuitton, Alexander Wang and Chloe shows, on the high street look no further than Zara for the perfect new season bag. Karen Millen also showcase some of the best burgundy bags this season.
