See-through shoes, snake-print purses and woven wedges: 36 spring accessories that will warm up your wardrobe now
If you’re looking to round out your Spring 2013 wardrobe before the thermometer hits a favourable temperature, we have some easy fixes and it’s all about accessories. From peekaboo panels on red leather purses to woven wedges, these on-trend pieces can complete any look.
For Spring 2013 we saw festival style take its place on the runways of Altuzarra and Band of Ousiders, so why not complete your Coachella packing with a woven bangle and wicker clutch? Sun-drenched raffia, wicker and straw are woven into wedges, stacked heels and shopping totes, signalling laid-back summer style. And if you’re not flocking to one of the many summer festivals and want to keep it basic, the new see-through trend is one that will keep you in the clear. Basic accessories have been redefined by giving oxford shoes plastic inserts and chunky heels on strappy sandals have been made see-through. These peekaboo plastic panels lend lightness to polished metallics and patent leathers.
Finally, fierceness this Spring 2013 comes in the form of bright python printed shoes, bangles and purses. From emerald green crossbody bags to purple snakeskin pumps, the year of the snake has slithered onto some of our favourite accessories. If you’re not feeling so bold, opt for tone on tone pieces for a tamer take on the trend.
