The 2015 Accessory Trend Report

Colour of the Year

Every season during the International Fashion Week's across the globe, designers not only showcase their lines but also hues that become the foundations for the upcoming season. As a Fashion Stylist, it's great to see these colours flood the runway whilst Pantone makes the important selection for the Colour of the Year. For 2015, Marsala has become a hue that you will see throughout a range of products from décor, beauty, fashion and of course, accessories.

As an Accessory Expert, I highly suggest that this distressed burgundy/maroon/espresso hue is perfect to wear in rich leathers such as this Preston Flap, Fossil bag which is a great cross body that you can work when you're hitting the Sunday Markets or heading to the beach! You will also find that it looks amazing with leather bracelets, leather sandals and more. This colour is great for an easy look in the summer and will continue to be just as wearable in autumn and winter!

Statement Jewellery

Whether you're rocking a romper, bikini or maxi one of the best ways to continue to have an effortless season is with perfect statement jewellery. Having a great piece that incorporates bling and fun coloured stones or a golden look that will work well with a variety of options is key. Over the past few months I have loved a great bib necklace! Necklaces like this one from Deepa Gurnani allows you have a tiered brass beaded feature that also incorporates leather and cotton for the optimal visual texture.

Arm Stack Updated

What makes a trend great is that it becomes a fashion statement and you can always enhance it in a number of ways! I love the concept of pairing a delicate piece with additional items that really showcase the ultimate arm stack. Henri Bendel's Luxe Uptown Hand Chain in 12K Rose Gold allows you to adorn your finger and wrist with an embellished chain to connect the two. Not only does this look exotic but it allows you to still pair it with your favorite bracelets and wraps.

Tote Exotic Skins

For the woman that's on the go and who wants to look luxe whether she's at the beach club or enjoying herself at a rooftop party, an exotic skin tote is an absolute must! Love, Alex is an exotic skin handbag and jewellery line that gives a percentage of the profits from the sale of their goods to the charity of your choice. One of my favourite bags from the collection is their Ornella Python satchel which is available within an array of hues. My favourite is the cobalt number that has a pop of blue/black python as well as being roomy with pockets and zips that take you from desk to the destination of your choice.

Adorn Your Ears

Earrings are an accessory that I personally do not wear a lot of! Interestingly enough, over the past few months I have become obsessed with ear cuffs. Wave Ear Cuff in Black and Rose by Graziela is a season must which looks regal with a bohemian vibe and will change your look dramatically in seconds!

And that's a wrap! Be bold and daring and add a little more bling to your daily look. As Michael Kors said, "Accessories are the exclamation point of a woman."
