Accessory Trends Spring-Summer 2018
Handkerchiefs, belts, hats, gloves – all these and many other accessories play an essential role in every woman’s life. Due to the wide range, women have the opportunity to change the image quickly, and to highlight the style and personality. With their help, women can draw attention to certain parts of the body parts, and, if necessary, on the contrary, take the prying eyes of the problem areas. It’s time to familiarize yourself with fashionable accessories for spring-summer 2018 season.
As practice shows, modern belts have long ceased to be exclusively male accessories. In addition, they have ceased to have only a practical function. Now ladies often use them for decorative purposes, i.e. to give the image integrity and originality, as well as to focus on certain body parts. Maison Margiela, Dries Van Noten, Louis Vuitton has decided that from now belts and straps must be tied in knots, Erdem and Altuzarra offered long thin straps that can be wrapped around the waist by 2-3 times.
While some designers have tried to focus on original belt fastening, others have paid attention to the decor. For example, Gucci has embellished straps with gold metal structures and large mono buckles, Marc Jacobs with stones, crystals and other metal accessories. At Rodarte and Fendi belts can be seen gorgeous metal flowers and on Giorgio Armani items – large colored buckles that resemble natural stones and braided patterns, Altuzarra instead, offered braided designs in black, white and brown shades.
Many are concerned with the question: what would be the actual belts thickness in the new warm season? The answer is quite prosaic – any thickness. However, brands have paid a special attention to thick belts (Roberto Cavalli, Versace, Balmain, Haider Ackermann), thin straps can be found in the collections of Lanvin, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta.
The colors of fashion belts in Spring-Summer 2018 proved also to be quite varied. Besides standard achromatic and brown, often were seen articles in blue, yellow, light blue, red (Ralph Lauren, Alexander McQueen, Michael Kors, Balmain). Designers often offer belts in colors matching exactly the color of the main clothing.
Fashionable scarves, handkerchiefs, kerchiefs Spring Summer 2018
Many handkerchiefs, scarves and headscarves entered firmly and steadily in the feminine fashion. And if in winter, there is some difference between handkerchiefs and scarves, then in the warm period, these two accessories are virtually identical. And no wonder. In summer, a woman does not feel the need to put around her neck a woolen scarf, the weather conditions allow her to be limited to a handkerchief, which by the way, can be worn as a head accessory.

Fur boa and capes
A little while ago we talked about light handkerchiefs and scarves for summer. Such accessories are also very suitable in warm days of spring and cool summer evenings. For cooler weather, for example, the early months of spring, fashionistas must find something warm. In order to not beat their head too much about this, designers have taken care of everything. In their opinion, the spring-summer 2018 season is the perfect time to appear in public wearing a fur boa or a fur cape. On this occasion, it has been proposed both natural shades of fur as well as bright artificial fur.

Moreover, these brands urge us to decorate the gloves with rings, as much as possible. In Louis Vuitton collection can be found bandage-gloves, which are often used by women in sports.
Head accessories are required not only in the cold season, but in the warm season as well. And if in winter the most popular are the fur hats, then during summer, ladies can afford to wear a light beret, a wide-brimmed hat or a summer scarf. For example, Gucci encourages acquirement of knitted berets for spring-summer season, which can be decorated with funny pompons or fashionable prints.
