2017 is here but, what do we need to have in our closet for the seasons to come? After stalking a bit magazines, catwalks I know for sure what accessories you need this 2017. Sit down, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy.
Safety pins: Sounds really weird but even Hermès has made his own version of this accessory: a safety pin into a ring. A very edgy way of adding details to your outfit. They are not only being used to add something more to that boring black blazer, but for many other things. Safety pin on chokers, earrings, rings and even to decorate a hat. If there is one thing you can be sure about it that safety pins are going to be the accessory of the season.
Ring :Manchette Chaîne d’Ancre Punk, Hermès
Earings: Tiny Double Safety Pin, Lauren Klassen
Pearls, pearls, pearls: A very chic and elegant accessory, but also very iconic. I find that pearls have been a bit lost in time. Sure, moms and grandmas use them every now and then, and Carolina Herrera can’t go out to her own run way without wearing them. But the fashion world was not using them as an accessory anymore. That time is apparently long gone. Chanel’s last Paris runway was full of pearls, necklaces and earrings. Various other designers have been also doing their own designs and adding little details with pearls. I have even seen leather jackets with pearls sewed on. Don’t wait a minute go get your mom’s pearls out of the closet.
Chains: I find this is also very CHANEL and also long forgotten. How long ago had I not seen long chained necklaces. I didn’t even remember that I still owned them. Since everything in the beauty world is gold, the fashion follows. Gold chains over CHANEL print dresses is what you need to wear, no matter the season you are getting into.
Small details in gold: Since winter has started everyone has the gold fever. Everything in the makeup section is gold: lipsticks, eyeshadows, eyeliners everything. The accessories follow, everything in stores and catwalks is gold. So if you are looking for spicing up your outfit add some gold to it.
Fancy, not boho, chokers: The boho trend is slowly fading away, we are slowly entering a season of chic, fancy and high street, and it is not because new year is in the corner. The boho hippie designs are losing popularity. Everything we see now is elegant, classy and also very classic vintage comebacks. Chokers do not want to leave, that is why designers are creating fancier and classier versions of them to make them stay and stay for good.
Small bags with different fabrics and embroidery: Actually embroidery everything, blouses jeans and bags. This trend is so popular that it’s making its way fast into stores like bershka, zara and H&M. If you find a piece with embroidery that you love, don’t hesitate, do it! Besides what a better way to start adding color to your wardrobe. I must admit though that it’s not only about embroidery. I wrote about it earlier but I am so in love with it that I have to mention it again: CHANEL fabric. It is not only about me loving it, but it is in fact being used more and more every day. I mean whatever you chose to wear that has CHANEL fabric on it will scream “I’m in season”.

I think you are now ready to accessorise your outfit.
Happy New Year!
