Cute and feminine, the Mary-Jane shoe is the must-invest style this season, as seen on the runway at Dior, Dolce & Gabbana and Miu Miu. Choose from kitten heels, flats or the high chunky heel variety.
Nothing says elegance like a pearl earring, and this autumn it is going to be the go-to jewellery of choice for those looking for understated glamour. Take inspiration from the runway at Chanel, Givenchy and Prabul Gurung.
Snakeskin shoes and bags are the ultimate status statement. Opt for rich autumnal tones as seen at Celine and Chloe or light stand-out shoes as seen on the runway at Givenchy.
Headgear came in all shapes and sizes but the one thing they all had in common was to make a strong statement. From Amish-style bucket hats at Valentino to slouchy caps at Marc Jacobs, there was something to suit every taste.
The fuss-free convenient way to wear a bag is across the body. As function prevails over fashion for today’s modern woman this cross-body bag is the perfect solution. Take style inspiration from Fendi, Hermes and Versace.
Throw it back to the old school with oversized gold and silver chains. This costume jewellery piece isn’t for everyone but wearing it with something simple as seen at Bottega Veneta, Alexander McQueen and Balenciaga gives the style a whole new lease of life.
Top handle bags are the most feminine of all – so much so even The Queen wears them. Elegant new bag designs were seen on the runway at Loewe, Prada and Salvatore Ferragamo to name a few.
Sometimes more is more, and this season’s jewellery trends embrace just that. Think over the top blingy, matching necklaces and earrings worn together for a full sparkly look. Dolce & Gabbana, Paco Rabanne and Chanel perfectly embraced the style.
Socks and Shoes
Once thought of as a fashion faux pas, socks and shoes have proved themselves to be edgier than ever imagined. Court shoes or Mary Janes were paired with colour clashing socks or tights at Versace, Fendi and Dior and we think it’s catching on.
Sunglasses take a step back in time this seasons with oversized, colourful retro frames being the style of choice. Fendi, Max Mara and Gucci all displayed new and cutting edge vintage-inspired styles.
