Fashion is the one creature which never gets tired of feeding and masquerading into new faces every six months or so. A few weeks ago I gave you some of the accessory must-haves for the festive season and somewhat beyond. We’ve covered my obsession with sunglasses and all sorts of amazing rings you wanna be seen rocking this season. Today we continue the lust-list with one of the fashion essentials which has found it way to cross the borders of femininity to the men’s department.
First up we have the oh so chic pochette. I am now having a crazy crush with this ‘It’ bag, with it firmly structured design it can literally take an outfit from ‘oh you look nice’ to ‘OMG you look totes AMAZING!!!!’
Don’t believe me? Give it a try, I bet you’ll be happy with the compliments. Pochettes guarantee you that extremely chic element while giving you that very ‘career girl’ type of look and that’s all thanks to it’s structural design. My personal favorite has to be the ones with a metallic finish but if that’s one bit too much shine for you then the graphic monochrome printed ones are for you. The options are limitless, you can also get ones with a matte finish or neon.
The second summer accessory which is getting quite popular with the fashion forward beings, is the sporty visor.
With athletic-chic so big lately it is becoming impossible to overlook the trending visors. At some point I just didn’t understand the need for a visor on someone who’s not jogging or doing any other form of exercise but 2013 welcomes visors with a somewhat fashionable flair to them which can just finish off any sport-luxe look perfectly. Retailers have also responded to the trend alert and started putting this item on their summer ranges.
This then means finding yourself one won’t be a mission at all. All you need to do is take some style inspiration from the spring/summer 2014 collections and fashion magazines and you will be sorted for a fashion killer season on all occasions.
