Accessories are a vital part of any stylish outfit, and they’re often much easier to wear across different seasons, even as fashions change. A statement accessory can breathe new life into an outfit and help you stand out from the crowd, and in this post we’ll look at 3 runway-inspired accessories for the 2017 spring season, and suggest some ways you can get the look for less.
- Coloured lenses
A popular choice for a range of luxury brands on the runway, including Celine, Balenciaga and Oliver Peoples glasses, coloured lenses have been making an appearance on all the high-end frames, with rose, blue and orange being the most popular colours. This trend appears across different styles too, from aviators to clubmasters. Of course these luxury brands won’t come cheap, but you can get much cheaper options from the likes of Shade Station, Spec Savers or Le Specs in the US.
- Floppy hats
The floppy straw hat will be a big trend this season, giving a bohemian feel to a classic style. It doesn’t need to be straw either, all long as the hat is big and floppy you’ll be bang on trend. As always you can opt for one of the luxury French or Italian brands, or you can look at somewhere like Old Navy, who has a stylish straw sun hat available for less than $20.
- Wide belts
A look that harks back to the ever-inspirational 80s, wide belts are well and truly back for the 2017 spring season. If you’re looking for a smarter look then opt for a leather style, or pick up a bright, floral print for those sunny days out and casual get-togethers. If you want high end, look at Victoria Beckham, and for high street prices look at OBI or NEXT Checkout the fashion jewellery at Shoppers Stop.
Of course there are plenty of other on-trend accessories for this season (in particular agate jewelry and wearable, handsfree bags), but these three will allow you to stay on-trend without breaking the bank.
