Summer is upon us, and fashion designers have clearly been busy preparing for the new fashion season. A special emphasis has been put on accessories this year. Here we present to you an accessories guide for summer 2014. If you follow it, you too can strut your stuff just like the models on the fashion runway.
This year’s accessories have prominence in three major areas:
Clutches and fringe bags are all the rage this year. The clutches come in a variety of shapes, styles, and materials. Some even fold onto themselves. They even include metallic and iridescent looks. Fringe bags, a few of which are a combination of clutch and fringe, are reflective of earthy and natural materials and themes. According to FashionDivaDesign.com, designer J. Mendel has even constructed some of these bags out of snake skin.
This year’s accessories are all about reflecting nature. We can find shoes designed out of feathers, and, as with the bags, we once again see snake skin as a design material. Flats with buckles and thick heels have made a comeback along with loafers. Overall, low heels are the heel height of the season. Skin tone heels, nude and metallic colors also play a part in this category.
Metals and handcrafted jewelry are seeing a revival on the fashion scene. Amber has taken the forefront as the stone of the season, and we should see many pieces showcasing it. Big and bold is what rules in this area, and gold tone pieces predominate with silver tone metals bringing up the rear.
The fashion accessories for summer 2014 are all about expressing the beauty of nature through fashion and showcasing womanly strength. Big, bold, and unique is the call for the day. All types of natural materials are being utilized for both fashion and functionality. Jewelry pieces are crafted with the idea of putting a focus on the neckline and the hands.
The good news is that you won’t have to break the bank to add these accessories to your wardrobe. The bad news is that there are so many accessories, but so little time.
These are only three of many areas in which accessories are making a fashion statement in summer 2014. With this accessories guide you can get a head start on the competition and start sprucing up your closet.
Go ahead, fashionista! Show ’em how it’s done.
