Add these four fashion capitals to your little black book of...
Whether you plan on donning them front row at fashion week – it is September after all – the next office get-together or a fall dinner party, make these accessories your new power pieces.
Silk scarves have emerged as the accessory du jour thanks to the likes of Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs and Versace, so turn your printed silk-twill scarf into a bag strap, backpack accessory or headband , is just the right thing to do.
Buy: an oversized silk logo-print scarf to drape around your neck or shoulders.
Heeled or flat, snake-effect or sleek leather, cowboy boots are having a major moment. The comeback kid of footwear can be worn to offset a floaty floral dress or to give cropped frayed-hem jeans a little lift.
Buy: black calf-length boots with metal toe caps and a block heel to nail the Americana look. But don’t stop there: you also need brown croc-effect ankle boots with Cuban heels.
ALL THINGS SHEER
We’re thinking sheer totes, sheer coats, sheer boots, sheer… you get the message. Whether you’re into the life-changing magic of minimalism – sheer clutch bags, or are just into baring all, you can make sheer great again.
Buy: a stretch-knit midi skirt with a sheer fluted hem. It’s perfect for baring just the right amount of skin.
Barely-there jewellery be gone. Instead we’re championing neck-grazing earrings – gold-tone leaf and feather earrings were seen on last season’s runways – chunky chain-link necklaces and cuffs fit for a Khaleesi. Who needs pared-down style when you can dial it up a notch, or three?
Buy: extraordinary earrings – you’ll know them when you see them.
