It can feel pointless at the moment to put effort into your accessories when they’re a few people to show them off to. However, as with all aspects of our dress, it is important to remember that you are dressing for yourself not other people. Wearing a bright pink bow or adorning our fingers with rings in the shapes of skulls might not have passed in your work environment but you can get away with them at home. In fact, being at home means that if we want to wear our dinosaur hat all day long then we can do so without fear of judgment. So, I implore you to spend this time experimenting with your weird and wonderful accessories in the freedom of your own home. To help I have compiled a list of six of the current hottest accessories brands.
It is no surprise that Accessorize made this list, it is named after all for its range of accessories. This high-street staple produces bags, hair accessories, and jewelry that are on trend at affordable prices. Their sister brand Monsoon focuses on fashionable clothing, so at sites where their shops are combined, you can find accessories that perfectly match your clothes allowing you to buy your entire outfit in one go. Their pieces appeal to those of any age, with some items specifically targeted for older or younger customers. So, no matter your age, you are sure to find the hottest accessories for your generation available.
No matter the year or season, Gucci will always be on-trend. The brand was created by Guccio Gucci and is based in the city of Florence in Italy. Whilst they do produce clothing, their main focus is on accessories. If you can afford their high prices, then their world-famous handbags or golden belts are must-haves. Their pieces are iconic yet timeless so can be well worth their high price tags. Their recent collaboration with North Face has ensured that not only are their items durable they are also practical.
Blackshore is a British coastal clothing company that offers a range of handmade designer bags, the most famous of which being their canvas duffle bags. They are made in the local style of Norfolk, using the same type of canvas found in boat covers which makes them waterproof. Their unique style mixed with sea proof practicality helped to win their place on the Make It British’s list of top 30 British made bags. So, if you would prefer to support more locally independent companies instead of worldwide brands then why not spend your money on a well-crafted handmade item from Blackshore instead.
Accessorising isn’t just for women. There are plenty of brands dedicated to accessories that cater to men as well. Audemars Piguet is a high-quality fashion brand that specializes in watches ad clocks. The company was founded nearly one-hundred-and-fifty years ago in Switzerland, so they have had plenty of time to perfect their craft. Their quality watches have become a must-have for any professional gentleman.
As stated earlier, we can use our current time at home to experiment and explore accessories that might have gotten us strange looks if we were to wear them in public. EMP is a website that has merchandise from various brands from Disney to My Chemical Romance. They have many fandoms to choose your accessories from including Marvel and Star Wars, and they are always up to date with the hottest TV shows and bands. They also do unlicenced items that cater to a more gothic or grunge look if that is more your style.
They might not appear to be the hottest accessories to older audiences, but when it comes to popular accessories for children and teens, Claire’s always has it covered. Whether the latest trend amongst tweens is to wear massive rainbows in their hair or earrings in the shapes of fuzzy pompoms, Claire’s will have it stocked. If you have children in your family and you are unsure of what to buy them, then you can be assured that anything you buy for them from Claire’s will be on-trend, however garishly so.
