Beauty can often be found in the details – in the little things. And that’s why this season’s accessories guide is just that, detail oriented. Bold shoes, statement jewellery, and embellished, structured handbags. This season, designers are all about wearable practicality – styles that work for the social student, the working woman, the effortlessly tousled sartorialist. With lower heels, smaller, burden-less bags, and personal jewellery, fashion is all about tailoring to the needs of the wearer rather than the other way around. It’s fashion for the working woman, it’s all about an eclectic mixture of ready-to-wear fashion combined with couture. It’s about designers being influenced by people in the streets rather than the other way around. But with a multitude of textures and geometric prints coupled with statement earrings and cocktail rings capable of completing an otherwise plain Jane outfit, fashion maintains its street style sparkle. Tousled ponytails and monochromatic makeup – it’s a look that celebrates the iconic looks Gossip Girl has created. It’s a new twist on minimalism; where the emphasis is placed on the accessories rather than the clothing. So ring in the New Year on the look out for these accessories and be sure to incorporate some statement accessories and a sparkling clutch into your New Years Eve ensemble to create a look that is, well, detail oriented.
