Throughout history, the world's most fashionable women have understood the power of the accessory. Ladies fashion accessories tend to be both extremely trendy and also deeply personal. Dressing up a classic suit with hip accessories is usually more affordable than buying a new suit each season. As such, women are willing to take risks with their accessories purchases that they might not take with their clothing.
Tracking trends as they shift from season to season will help you invest in pieces that better stand the test of time. The difference between an accessory with staying power and one that ages quickly can be as simple as an unusual choice in pattern or material. Choosing items that veer slightly from the textbook example of a specific trend will help you collect pieces that last
Judging by what is coming from the fashion press over recent weeks, two very fashionable Ladies Accessories
are capes and long leather gloves. Capes are extremely versatile and can be worn cardigan style by being draped over the shoulders or they swept and across the body for a different style and extra protection from the cold. Another tip to remember when buying a cape is to keep it natural. Make sure the fabric is non-synthetic (cashmere and silk works best as they are lightweight and fantastic temperature regulators) and ensure that the colour suits your skin tone and shape. This will ensure that your cape stands the test of time.
Long leather gloves have been a staple accessory since roman times, making an appearance in Homers Odyssey. Over the years this garment has divided opinion; there are those who never go to an evening cocktail party or opera without them. However, there are those who view the gloves more a sexual fetish accessory than a fashion accessory. However, it seems for the moment that long leather gloves are being brought up from the dungeon and having their day in the sun . . . or autumnal drizzle to be more precise.
Whether by design or by luck, these two ladies accessories make the perfect match. Can you imagine yourself draped with a camel coloured cashmere cape whilst donning a pair of luxuriously soft black nappa leather gloves? If so visit Black.co.uk, the home of luxury ladies accessories online.
