Accessories have the power to make or break your outfit. They are also an easy way to create a whole new look when paired with old favourites from your wardrobe. With this in mind we have rounded up some of this seasons best accessory trends so that you can keep your look fresh.

Slim Sunglasses

We aren’t sure how we feel about this trend. Oversized sunglasses have been our friend for many years. Not only are they great for people watching but they provide more coverage from the sun over the skin around your eyes. Slim sunglasses are incredibly popular thanks to the likes of Bella Hadid and many Insta-models. These tiny, sleek shades were also spotted on the catwalks at Miu Miu and Louis Vuitton. If you aren’t keen to ditch the oversized frames trying giving slim shades that have a sportier edge a try.

Transparent Shoes and Bags

Transparent bags seemed to appear most summers but this spring they have been joined by clear shoes. The bag is no longer the main focus as you carry your life around with you, it now seems to be all about what you have in it. We suggest a handbag clear out before you invest in one. No one needs to see your receipts and sweet wrappers. Chanel and Balmain are making transparent boots a trend so we best book in for a pedicure!


A few seasons ago it was all about the Chloe Susanna boots and this spring Chloe are offering up more low heeled boots. After all, who really has time to totter from A to B in stilettos?

Patterned Bags

We go from one extreme with transparent bags to the other with patterned bags. Who says fashion is confusing? At least there is something to suit every taste! If you love a monochrome outfit this trend gives you the chance to go crazy with your accessories and make your bag a conversation starter.
