Fashion may be driven by trends but styling your clothes and accessories is a lot about your individuality and staying true to your authentic self. As Iris Apfel, the queen of fashion and style, said, ‘Fashion you can buy, but style you possess.’ The top fashion accessories and trends of this year are proving to be as wild as ever. Originality comes from how you’ll choose to wear them.
We’ve taken a look at the bold themes of timelessness and essentiality that has resulted in some truly must-have statement pieces. We have delved into some of the most inspiring pieces to bring you this list of 5 must-have accessories.
1. Protective Charm Amulets
One of the most enduring trends in fashion is rooted in both religious and cultural beliefs. Charms, amulets, crosses, rosary beads have found their place on the runways this year. Perhaps for the woman who is looking for luck or protection from danger. She’s the girl who loves small, dainty pieces and only wants to give off the best kind of energy.
Given its highly personal nature, this trend is likely never going to end. Thankfully, you can rock it in a thousand ways: bracelets, earrings, rings, necklaces, anklets, and even buttons can all be part of your charm, literally and figuratively. Not every fashion accessories store will have these, but Poco Loco has a veritable treasure of amulet necklaces.
2. Sea Treasure
The seaside embodies a timelessness that seeps into the soul. Astrologers associate the ocean with love, family, and softness - even giving them a direct connection to the moon. Whatever it is, jewellery has gotten increasingly natural this season, perfect for someone who loves to spend her time outdoors.
Cowrie shells, waves and whales are making a big statement. Blue beads are also showing up on everything from bracelets, anklets, shoe jewellery, and earrings.
This trend is decidedly feminine, and people are rocking it with confidence. They are definitely a must-have for the woman who spends her days at the beach, in the water and soaking up rays. And they are a way of staying close to nature when we can’t always be outside exploring it. For such treasured accessories, Poco Loco store is your go-to option. We sell women’s fashion accessories online in Australia. We also have our sand and sea-inspired products in local markets at Bondi beach so you can take a piece of the ocean with you wherever you go.
3. Animal Motifs
Apart from practicality, the accessories making noise this year are also a show of authenticity. Animal-inspired accessories with animal prints and suede leather chokers are dominating in more ways than one.
Whether it’s a Turtle and sea opal anklet or Whale tail pendant, this is a fun fashion accessories trend. For maximum effect, go for silver detailing and small design because they add a subtle bohemian look to any outfit you choose to grace with them.
4. Choker Necklaces
Choker necklaces are getting a little more boho and a little bit of rock n’ roll - the ultimate ‘cool gal’ combo. There are now more designs and twists of this trend than ever before. If there was ever a time to spruce up your choker game, this is it.
To style a pair of denim jean shorts and a graphic tee, finish the look with pieces from our Suede Choker collection. For an even more down to earth vibe, why not try cowrie shell chokers? They are unique and absolutely gorgeous.
5. Hoop Earrings
Silver hoops have dominated the stage for years now, so it is not really a surprise that they remain a must-have for this year as well. Not only do they make a bold statement, but we are also seeing a one earring trend taking shape on almost every runway.
However, the solo earring trend is not limited to hoops. The only trick is to make it shout loud enough for it to stand out on its own. Whether you go for simple hoop earrings or elaborate designs, this trend will keep a while longer. It’s time you embrace your free spirit and get playful with it.
6. Statement Chains
Bold is the name of the game, and nothing can possibly be bolder than beaded and knotted chains. These threaded pieces are bringing back the 90’s grunge look with a bang, and it is taking the world by storm.
Married to oversized statement pieces like flowy dresses, relaxed pants and western boots, you definitely don’t want to miss out on this trend if you consider yourself a hip kid. Add a touch of colour or stick with timeless silver rings, and you can never go wrong with this trend.
