Fashion Accessories for 2010

in Animal

This years fashion accessories do not see any strikingly new trends, instead giving more momentum to trends that have been steadily growing over the past few seasons, which of course works very well for the bank balance as generally speaking last year's accessories that you splurged on have not hit the "that is so last season" pile just yet!


Animal prints are going full steam ahead this summer with earings, bags, shoes and clothes all bearing animal print fabrics, of course you may not want to combine them all together!  If you are not quite ready to don a leopard print dress or leopard print pumps, try something a little more subtle in the form of animal print earings, you never know maybe you enjoy them so much you'll be marching to the high street searching for an animal print jumpsuit!  Animal prints can add a nice touch to a simple outfit.


Knee high and over the knee socks made an appearance in autumn and have continued through to this year's spring/summer range.  These accessories look great with shorts and flowing dresses.  They are trans-seasonal so investing in a few pairs will see you through into the following year.  There are a range of colours from bright neons, patterns and more natural block colours.


Just like animal prints, studs are continuing in popularity.  Studs are adorned on most fashion accessories – bags, shoes and clothing.  If you're not quite ready to embrace studs in your wardrobe, you can start with a few subtle embellishments on shoes and bags before being brave enough to move to a complete studded outfit.


Accessories for the head region this summer include bow headbands which are keeping with the 80s theme we have being seeing everywhere and cannot escape.  Big bright bold coloured headbands come with a warning not for the faint hearted or easily embarrassed, if you want something smaller and less conspicuous, there are many more subtle versions to complement any hair do.


Another head accessory that you can really go to town with in summer is the hat.  There are more hats than ever this season, but the hottest hat trend is the Fedora.  This style hat is rather boyish but contrasts well with longer hair.  Another hot hat this summer is the Panama hat for both men and women.  The Panama comes in a range of neutral colours such as khaki, tan, beige and brown.  A staple favourite straw hat never fails to disappoint, and with celebrities such as Cheryl Cole being spotted wearing straw hats at the beach, there is no wonder they are flying off the shelf.
