Collaborative Post | After months of chilly weather, spring has well and truly sprung which means that summer is just around the corner. While many of us spend the winter eagerly awaiting the warmer seasons, often they come upon us so suddenly that we are left unprepared. Get ahead of the game with your hot weather wardrobe by investing in these essential luxury accessories for summer 2023.
Statement straw hat
What better way to make a statement with your look than with an oversized hat? Think Andie MacDowell’s entrance in the beloved British rom-com Four Weddings and a Funeral.
Classic straw hats are back this year, but bigger than ever before and in a range of unusual designs. Traditionalists can stick with enlarged wide-brimmed styles, while those looking to revamp their look will delight in the funky cowboy hats and 90s-inspired roll-up visors.
Bags with a bang
It seems that all trending accessories for summer 2023 are about making a statement – and bags are no exception.
Many designers are running with the idea that ‘bigger is better’. Laidback lovers of boho-chic will delight in the vast colourful crochet numbers such as the Granny Square Shoulder Bag by Anya Hindmarch, or you can opt for a large leather tote in a muted tone like camel or stone.
Bags are also being influenced by the recent 90s revival, with brands like Coach and Chanel releasing a range of small shoulder bags in blush and hot pink to honour the upcoming Barbie film starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling that is set to be the biggest cinematic release of the summer.
The world of watches has been flourishing recently as people get back into the swing of office working and the daily commute. This season, function is meeting fashion: the luxury watch is being upheld as the ultimate wrist adornment for summer.
Watches from high-end designers like OMEGA are wonderfully varied, with options to suit every lifestyle and personal taste. Choices range from delicate gem-embellished designs and subtle silver bracelets to bold black rubber straps and vibrant smartwatches with all the latest tech.
Given the ‘in-your-face’ hats and bags that are trending this summer, it will come as no surprise that subtle studs are being replaced by eye-catching earrings this season.
The 90s is a common theme in ear accessories, too, with hoop earrings making a comeback. This revival is seeing hoop earrings reimagined in a medium size, in designs that are more chunky and embellished than their classic counterparts.
Drop earrings are a great alternative if hoops aren’t your thing. Big brands like DIOR and Saint Laurent have created dramatic drop earrings in gold with their logo prominent in the design. DIOR’s entire collection of drop earrings is sure to attract attention, dominated by large pearls and gemstone detailing.
