What styles are going to be hot in 2013? If the catwalk is giving us any clues, then there are some accessories that are going to be big this year- and many of last seasons trends are being recycled, so there’s no need to throw out those leopard print jeggings.. well, unless you want too.
Here are a few trends for 2013 I’ve handpicked from the catwalk- all styles are wearable and can be adapted with high street options, as demonstrated.
Every year it seems the neck jewels the models wear get bigger and bigger, and this season is no exception. Multiple materials, from pearls to leather and acrylics were used to show big shiny baubles on long ostrich like necks- and they’re pretty cool for jazzing up an outfit on a day when you feel like turning some heads.
Ring a Ding Extra
Rings are all about the bling this year, but rather than be ostentatious with too many stones, you can opt for a chic twisted variety that gives shine to the hand without looking overdone. I like how Balenciaga balances thick cuffs with smaller circlets and this is a simple but effective way to update anything. Plus, I’m a total ring addict, so this is right up my street.
Earrings get Exciting
Who says earrings have to be delicate small studs anymore? Rodarte takes an edgy look at this accessory with a dragon inspired ear cuff, which is all embellishments and detailing. For something less aggressive but still very stylish I love the Daisy Rae Ear Cuff, from Bank Fashion, as it’s an easy way to wear this look, and the extra cuff part makes it pretty unique. £7 / $10 – how can you go wrong. For those with more gothic inclinations, the skull spikes would also help you get catwalk chic.
Cute under the collar
Collars come in so many varieties- chains, necklaces, Peter Pan and tailored options that they really won’t go out of style. Anything you already own can be reused and if you have to invest in a few new pieces, well the above options are pretty adorable, and each one would work in a different way.
