THE ACCESSORIES THAT WILL TRANSFORM YOUR LOOK FOR 2016

When it comes to taking your look into the season ahead, you needn’t always break the bank with a complete wardrobe overhaul. Adding a handful of on-trend accessories can reinvigorate your look, breathing new life into wardrobe favourites and bringing them bang up to date for spring/summer. Here are the only accessories you need for SS16.

SOCKS

Socks and sandals were once the ultimate fashion faux pas but that is no longer the case. In fact, the sock and sandal combination swept the catwalks. From chunky knits with platform heels to fishnets and gossamer thin ankle socks with strappy sandals, it’s time to prep those legs, ditch the 80 deniers and brave all but bare legs.

Wolford’s Rahel, Nude 8 and Waves socks all tie up the trend perfectly when paired with sleek sandals, whilst we recommend borrowing from the boys for your chunkier knits.

BRIGHT BAGS

We love black, tan and oxblood hues for the darker months but it’s time to slip them into their dust bags and bring out the brights. From Fiery Spritz Mulberry to Electric Blue Michael Kors, there’s no hue too hot for the season ahead.  

BLACK RIBBON

One of this summer’s biggest trends won’t break a fiver, never mind the bank.

Head to your local haberdashery or craft shop and pick up a metre of great quality black ribbon; hey presto! You’ve got another SS16 trend all tied up. Tie loosely around you neck to work the choker trend or tie beneath the collar of your go-to white blouse to recreate the pretty necktie look that has stuck around since last season’s 70s show.    

SNAKESKIN SHOES

Snakeskin is the print of choice for SS16 and Michael Kors has the high and low on the trend when it comes to footwear. Go flat out with the MK signature pump or sky high with the snake print platform. Shoes are enough to show your style stripes
