We all know that killer accessories take your outfit to that next level. Especially over this party and racing season when there are endless events, and my outfits are running dry, I reach out for accessories so they can do the hard work to mix up my looks.
I am so excited to partner with Mimco to share with you my top accessories for work, party and the spring racing season.
At work, I keep it low key with denim and my favourite silk cami, but after work, I like to glam it up with a cool bag and some gold bling. It’s all about colour this season, and I love red and pink worn together (yes, together) In the past, this was considered a fashion faux pas, but ‘more is more’ when it comes to colour. Red accessories look great paired with denim, black, burnt orange or yellow as I am wearing here and don’t forget about gold jewellery- it teams perfectly with red.
I love the racing season, as it allows you to play it up with accessories that you usually wouldn’t wear. It’s the time of the year to go out and make a statement. Think long cascading earrings, big hoop earings and beaded fringing in gold shades. It’s important not to forget about your shoes. I look to platform styles for outdoor events like the races (so your heels don’t get caught in the grass) You need to nail all three of these accessories for a winning race day outfit.
With millinery, metallics are big again. Delicate gold crowns are going to be popular as well as bold turbans. I am really excited to give the wide brimmed or boater hat a whirl as big headwear is a big trend.
As you know, I like keeping it simple and classic with my clothes, so this allows me to play up with different trends with my accessories instead. At night, I am all about beading, sparkle and bright jewelled tones.
What are you favourite trends this season?
