Autumn / Winter 2012 Preview -
Opulent Neckwear & Luxurious TimePieces
A #FashionFriday Blog Post
Very so often, a new breed of accessory comes along that seems to give every outfit an edge, a je ne sais quoi element that you can’t quite put your finger on. At the minute, it’s statement necklaces and collars: whether it’s in the form of a dramatic necklace or a quirky detachable collar, if you invest in one accessory this season, make sure it’s for your neck. Tiny delicate jewelry it ain’t: Autumn/Winter 2012 is all about adding embellishment to your look wherever possible, and a go- anywhere piece of jazzy neckwear is an easy way to get in on the trend and add a new season edge to plain shirts and t-shirts (and jumpers when it gets chilly).
To further the look, add a luxurious watch to the ensemble. Pairing a jewel encrusted bezel with a similar colored necklace can dress up even the simplest pair of jeans.
And don’t worry about fitting a specific mould with this look, as there’s a different version for almost every AW12 trend. So try out fringing, heavy metal plating, neon, beads, lace, with a Red Christian Dior Watch…pretty much anything goes as long as it’s bold, eye-catching and oversized.
Plümo’s stand-out beaded version reflects the true meaning of statement: styled with minimal make-up, a fuss-free up-do and a plain white collared shirt, the tribal-style beads can take centre stage. River Island and Accessorize both have cute collar-style necklaces that will take an outfit from plain to Saturday night. Pair this with an opulent watch by Versace and it becomes a VIP Saturday night! Marks & Spencer’s sophisticated take on the trend blended with a classic Chanel watch will add a ladylike feel to your ensemble.
No matter what your personal style, a statement piece of neckwear paired with a luxurious timepiece, will be the link that pulls it all together this season.
