Fashion Accessories to Shine with on Vacation

The best fashion accessories for a vacation can update your holiday style, keeping you up to date with trends without needing to buy a whole new wardrobe. By choosing new fashion accessories, you leave yourself with more spending money whilst you are away and it’s better for the environment as it cuts unnecessary waste.

Wherever you’re on vacation, reworking your outfits can be simply achieved with a new hat, a pair of sunglasses, an item of jewellery or an on-trend bag. 

 

Jewellery

A dainty ring can go unnoticed, and if a pendant is kept covered by your top, your jewellery will have little impact on helping you shine on vacation. Be on-trend with jewellery that makes a statement and will draw in compliments. 

Floral jewellery, particularly earrings, has taken the fashion world by storm, with bold colours across the spectrum. Layered earrings work well, though require more piercings. Alternatively, combine diamonds, colour and 24k gold earrings for a look that will get you noticed. Laboratory diamonds work well as it is almost impossible to know they are not real. 

A multilayered shell bracelet complete with gold links and clasp will add a bohemian feel to your look.

 

New bag

Wicker and shell basket bag

A straw basket bag is perfect for any beach vacation. Go retro with a straw bag with a cowrie shell and tassel trim design with enough space to store all you need for the beach. A cotton lining and zip will keep the sand out.

 

Geometric clutch bag

Geometric patterns are on-trend and make an impact against a little black dress. Try a bohemian style delicately woven from soft cotton or one with embellishments to really stand out in the crowd. These are an easy way to update an outfit without taking up precious luggage space. Add a beaded shoulder strap to a plain clutch bag for a different look that adds some shine when out in the evening.

 

Abaca bucket bag

Your bag can be a conversation starter not just because it looks good, but because it makes a statement from the material from which it is made.  An abaca bucket bag is both silky and translucent in a neutral colour that will lift any warm-weather ensemble. Abaca is a species of banana that is highly durable, flexible and resistant to saltwater damage, making it perfect for your beach holidays. 

 

Headwear

A wide-brimmed natural straw hat with a contrasting ribbon and oversized bow is fashionable whether you are on holiday in the Hollywood Hills or Bali. To make an elegant statement, go retro with a wide brim hat in black with tan leather trim and gold buckle for a touch of luxury. 

 

Hair brooches

Barrettes and hair brooches are perfect for adding something special to an evening look, but they also add a touch of finesse to an everyday outfit. Gemstones, pearls, bows and florals are just some of the feminine touches you can choose from. A diamanté-embellished shell on a gold-tone fastening creates a perfect statement accessory to tousled beach waves. 

 

Headbands

When it is no longer time to wear a summer hat, a plush velvet headband encrusted with shells and pearls that will really make you shine on holiday.  Consider a headband made from twisted loops completely covered in beads that look like tiaras. 

A simpler woven patterned cotton headband will enhance any beach aesthetic when worn with free-flowing dresses. For unusual designs, look for fairtrade brands actively working alongside women worldwide to improve their quality of life through access to healthcare and education.

Elegance, tailoring and sophistication were all on the Maryling runway for Fall / Winter 2018.19 collection, as well as a highlight for monochromatic looks, especially in red and for the elegant plaid patterns.

Maryling Fall 2018 MFW

I went to check out the Maryling fashion show during the Milan Fashion Week here in Milan and here are the main looks and trends chosen by Maryling for the next winter.

The college inspiration gains a much more sophisticated look, with a plaid print and 3/4 stockings, in a very adult and elegant look.

 

Dresses in fine fabrics create a movement and sensuality for the brand’s winter:

Two of my favorite outfits from the Maryling fashion show from the winter 2019 collection, one in red with a beautiful plaid print and one in ton sur ton red outfit. Lately I’m so into the red vibe, and it’s a color that was super present on the Fall/ Winter 2018.19 runways here during the Milan Fashion Week.

Cangiari Fall 2017 – Milan Fashion Week

One of Milan Fashion Week’s presentations I have been was Cangiari Fall 2017, a brand that has rescued an old tradition of fabrics from Calabria (Italy) and which creates handmade woolen fabrics, taking eight hours to create each meter of fabric.

• Cangiari Fall 2017 MFW:

Cangiari - Fall 2017 MFW

The Cangiari Fall 2017 collection was inspired by the Nature’s colors during the fall/winter season, all with handwoven fabrics produced by the brand.

With patterns that were inspired by the Ancient Greece that meet the new fashion trends. Using a selection of unconventional materials that were inspired by the origins, by the work in the factories and the nights during the war.

 

Cangiari - Inverno 2017

With patterns created with Byzantine and Hellenistic designs, Cangiari takes this ancient inspiration to create modern pieces for the Fall 2017 collection.

 

Cangiari - Fall 2017 MFW

With garments such as coats, ponchos, capes and kimonos, Cangiari brings us a comfortable fall/winter with beautiful pieces with a lot of style. Perfect to create that cosy style that I love for the fall season.

 

Cachecol Cangiari - Fall 2017

 

With fringed pieces and ankle long coats and gilets, the Cangiari Fall 2017 collection has neutral colors such as shades of grey, black and cream, combined with details in red and green on its patterns.

inverno 2017 - Cangiari

 

Cangiari collections was created under Maria Paola Pedetta’s creative direction, being a brand which works with the production of fabrics in a sustainable and ethical way, with the traditional  made in Italy quality.

Kimono Cangiari

Cangiari creative director told that she “thought about a collection that, more than any other, told through the materials the meaning of Cangiari story. Its sprit, its values, its pride.”

While visiting the brand’s presentation at Milan Fashion Week, I’ve learned more about the brand and its process to create the handwoven fabrics: the are created based on a traditional from Calabria (region on the italian south).

This technique was  passed from generation to generation through the music of the region and it was falling into oblivion. The brand had to join the songs and their translations to rescue this form of fabric production to create handmade fabrics and pieces of the Italian label.
