Style editor AISLINN COFFEY rounds up the KEY PIECES for SS18 …
1 A shapely bag: Circle, square, half-moon, geometric. Anything interesting will do the job. Make sure there is enough room for your phone, wallet and keys.
2 Pointy-toe heels: Add sparkle to your step with ladylike pretty pumps – courts, slingbacks or kitten heels. Wear with everything from a pencil skirt to combats.
3 Tiny sunnies: Big sunglasses are out, teeny-tiny ones are in; didn’t you get Kanye’s email?
4 Dramatic hat: Maria Grazia Chiuri elevated the humble cap from workwear to statement accessory by overlaying it with a veil. Extra-large straw hats stood out at Paris SS18 fashion week. These hats are to be worn with make-up – they’re not hats to hide under.
5 Futuristic sneakers: Box up your Balenciaga Triple Ss, Louis Vuitton’s outlandish Archlight sneakers have been spotted on the feet of countless people in the know.
6 Crystal and pearl jewellery: Shoulder-grazing pearl and crystal earrings, crystal-embellished resin necklaces and bracelets: surprisingly lightweight and easy to wear all night long.
7 Feminine slides: Dress up a relaxed outfit with a hair slide for instant polish.
8 The come-back kid: Scrunchies
Love them or loathe them, scrunchies made an appearance on the SS18 runways. Pros? They do hold hair well and don’t leave a dent like regular hair ties. Cons? The throwback factor is too much for some … We like Balenciaga’s high-sheen leather version. Wear yours like Mansur Gavriel’s girls: secure a low, loose ponytail below the base of the neck.
