Stylish women’s accessories to warm you up this winter
Article posted: July 6, 2021
As much as we enjoy dropping the oh-so-casual “This? Oh it’s just something I threw on!” every committed Camberwell fashionista knows that with every new season comes a new opportunity to create gorgeous new looks and claim your style prize.
In winter 2021, though, the competitors for number one style maven isn’t between the fashion obsessed, it’s between the accessories themselves – and the name of the game is: who can be the most fun at the same time being the most stylish?
Here are three on-trend fashion accessories all vying for the title of accessory most likely to lift your spirits and elevate your look to most on-trend of the season.
The essential crossbody bag
Adding a crossbody bag will give any outfit a lift, but these little gems gift you something even greater – hands!
Say goodbye to struggling to carry your purse as well as your shopping bags; no more searching for something to rest your handbag on while you find your keys; and absolutely no chance of accidentally leaving your handbag behind on the train.
Enjoy your new-found freedom with quirky, bright, fun designs for the weekend or a night out, or opt for a sleek leather or classic quilted look for the office or more formal events.
If you really want to nail the ‘it’ look of winter, make sure at least one of your crossbody bags comes with a thick, striped, cotton weave or braided strap in contrast colours – and don’t forget to mix and match the straps with each outfit.
Not to be outdone by their handbag counterparts, this season scarves have upped their fun game and taken centre stage.
There’s no place for the sensible, plain and simple scarf on the fashionable streets of Camberwell – this winter the scarf is all about texture. And the more interesting the better.
This season’s scarves juxtapose winter greys, whites and blacks with embellishments of pom poms, tassels, pearls, and ruffles.
Or choose a classic, unadorned scarf with a chunky, thick, lattice or interesting weave.
Not to be outdone, this winter jewellery is hitting peak statement, with bangles, necklaces and earrings taking pride of place in the fashion stakes.
Bangles and necklaces fashioned from beads as big as Tom Bowlers are key style pieces and can be teamed with a simple cut suit for the office, or big chunky jumpers and jeans on the weekend. Think big, bold and colourful.
For evenings, accessorise with elaborate silver or gold earrings, or an intertwined collection of bangles and bracelets. As long as it looks like it came from Aladdin’s cave, you’re good.
Living up to its reputation as Melbourne’s epicentre of style, Camberwell precinct’s fashion stores have you covered for all the fun, quirky, bright and luxe accessories to put a smile on your face this winter.
