Fashion post #2 - Accessory trends for Spring/Summer 2012/2013

Hey guys! I decided to split up accessory and make up trends, as I felt it would be easier and, well, better to do so! So, let's go~!

Trend 1: BDSM inspired

From left to right:
Chain Hand Chain at Topshop
Mercy Belt by 17 Sundays
EVIVE Leather Harness Belt from ASOS
Single Bar Knuckle Buster by Deer Ruby*
Two Pack Spike Ponios by Topshop
Wicked Ring by CC Skye*

The rundown: This fetish has come onto the runway - and we all know why! (*cough*50 shades of grey*cough*) Use these accessories to spice up an otherwise feminine/elegant coord with a slightly forbidden allure. 

Not too keen? Incorporate accessories that have purely black leather, whether it be shoes or a leather clutch. Silver parts also give an edgy, BDSM-style feel without being over the top out there.

Trend 2: Cobalt blue
From left to right:
Contrast Fold Over Tlock Tote by Colette
Facet Cross Ditsy Necklace by Topshop
Rhinestone Arrow Earrings by Topshop
Enamel Line Dome Ring by Lovisa
Scandi Leather Triangle Ring by Topshop
Lady Fascination clutch by PeepToe*
Premium Blue Rhinestone Wristwear by Topshop

The rundown: Personally, I love this colour, especially when colour blocking with orange. Use it to add detail to an otherwise feminine silhouette.

Not too keen? A clutch or ring in this colour, and nothing else, is fine.

Trend 3: Rich metallics
From left to right:
Textured Point Collar by TopShop
Cut-Out Shield Earrings by Lovisa
Criss-Cross Cuff by Lovisa*
3 strand plate necklace by Equip
Metallic Snake Hardcase Clutch by Colette
Smooth Rectangle Band Ring at Topshop

The rundown: Silver and gold is here again in full force~  Such jewellery adds elegance and interest to an otherwise boring co-ordinate.

Not too keen? Limit yourself to a collar and a bangle.

Trend 4: Baroque
From left to right:
D'amour Trio Ring by Chrissy L Bijoux*
Oval and mesh cut off cuff by Equip
Filligree chandelier earrings by Equip
Woven Chain & Jewel Bracelet by PeepToe*
Premium Stone Drop Earrings by Topshop
Drape Choker Necklace from TopShop

The rundown: Renaissance style is back in a big way, and what better way to flaunt it than with your accessories? If in doubt, go for gold, turquoise and coral colours. If you're feeling keen beans, try accessorise your brocade-included outfit with baroque style jewellery. More of a wallflower? Use a stunning necklace as the centerpiece to your co ordinate.

Not too keen? Limit yourself to earrings or an ornate ring.

So, what accessory trends are you keen on? Leave a comment below, and stay tuned for the next and final instalment!
