The world might be turning all kinds of grey as winter descends, but you don’t have to. The upcoming season’s fashion trends are all about opulence, decadence and luxury, and jewel-like colours have been creating kaleidoscope patterns on the catwalk. The great thing about this winter’s trends is that you don’t have to give your entire wardrobe a makeover. A few bright, bold accessories and one-off items can add some serious accent and attitude on their own.
Here’s how to transform your wardrobe into a veritable jewellery box this winter:
One of the most exciting brands to emerge in time for winter are Urban Lab, a design team who are boldly breaking down the barriers between art and fashion. Their range of silk scarves features bright and beautiful images of street art graffiti from across the world, from the backstreets of Lisbon to the train tracks of Budapest. Only sold in a three boutiques across the UK (Arkangel & Felon, Luna & Curious and Fidji Couture), here’s your chance to stand out from the crowd with something truly unique yet right on trend this winter.
Accent your outfit with some fairytale-fabulous shoes this winter. It’s all about the sparkle and statement, and there’s never been a better time to treat your tootsies to something extra special. Vivienne Westwood’s Melissa range includes some heel clicking beauties that perfectly capture this winter’s look. Red suede skyscraper heels? Yes please!
If red’s not your colour then I’ve got three words for you: Midnight glitter shoes. In a pair of these dazzling beauties you certainly shall go to the ball, and you’ll be the sparkliest thing there.
It’s all about luxury colours and fabrics this season, so if your winter coat is looking a bit tired then why not splash out on something utterly unique and stylish? Bold colours are really in and brands like Lillith are leading the way with fabulous coats such as this turquoise number made from the softest of alpaca wool. Luxurious and comfortable to boot, this is the kind of coat that will never get boring. You’ll be warm and snugly whilst looking bright as a button, and the relaxed fit silhouette style means that you can layer and luxuriate. A dreamboat of a coat, I’m sure you’ll agree.
It doesn’t matter if your entire winter wardrobe is monochrome. Add a Zatchel bag and you will instantly stand out from the crowd. Their cute old school satchels come in a range of bold colours to eradicate the winter blues including metallic gold, silver, bronze and deep red. If satchels aren’t your thing then check out their unique barrel bags, which come in all the decadent metallic tones that have been sparkling down the catwalk in recent months.
