The year-end festive season will be upon us soon. Get ahead of the crowd and bag the best of accessible luxury from Reebonz for yourself and your loved ones for style essentials that will become wardrobe staples.
Too often we fall prey to ‘last minute shopper syndrome’ attempting to nab the most festive accessory without considering the daily wearability of the item. Start early and go in with a clear plan of what you need and how you can style your luxury accessories to last well into the coming years.
Reebonz is the trusted online platform for buying and selling a wide range of luxury products.
Key festive colour trends include red, white, gold and silver, with black as a staple.
Red is timeless and appropriately festive, drawing the eye and making a statement be it in the boardroom or at a party. It is also very much a key Autumn/Winter 2015 colour trend.
Choosing a red bag or shoes is a fashion statement in itself as it does stand out in a sea of black or neutrals.
A red Salvatore Ferragamo Beky bag will see you through festive visits, and will transition seamlessly as a boardroom must have.
However based on your personality you can play up or tone down the red through the shade, size and height of your accessories for example a large scarlet tote compared to a sleek, slim burgundy red clutch; or maroon ballet flats versus crimson stilettoes.
The Saint Laurent Classic Monogramme Clutch in New Red is a perfect style statement to sashay into dinner parties or elegant events. Pair it with Valentino Garavani Rockstud Ballerinas for an edgy and chic look this festive season.
Red accessories make thoughtful gifts for significant people in your life as it adds uniqueness to even a belt or wallet.
Go for Glamorous Gold
Unleash your inner diva with a touch of luxe gold accessories this festive season and observe as all others bow down before you.
While gold accessories may not always be workplace appropriate unless you are in creative fields or entertainment but you can make the gold handbag, flats or heels a party or weekend essential, to announce your fashionista cred from afar.
Bask in the limelight with a pair of glittering classic Salvatore Ferragamo Varina Flats. Layer on more gold with a metallic leather Alexander McQueen De Manta Clutch. Dress down with jeans and a white tee and barely there make-up, or let your accessories take center stage against a matte black ensemble and a bold red lip.
Select gold accessories for the flamboyant individuals in your life, they will wear it with flair. A pair of Chanel Pearl Drop Clip-On Earrings will make the special lady in your life – be it your mother, sister, wife, boss or BFF know just how much you treasure her.
White Out Whimsy
For the ultimate in high maintenance minimalism opt for white. In gloss, matte or with subtle shimmer it is for the Ice Queen who is ultra confident that stains are unable to penetrate her aura of invincibility.
Pair with a black outfit for high contrast, or be ethereal in white on white layers. Either option will make you a style maven that others envy.
Be an Ice Queen this winter with a lightweight and stylish Issey Miyake BaoBao Lucent Flap bag that is au courant.
Showcase your mastery of Winter Whites with either the Balenciaga Giant Gold Mini City with its vintage crafted lambskin leather body or the Chloe Small Emma Shoulder bag. As you strut in your white power suit or float by in diaphanous layering, you will be noticed.
Shimmer, Shine and Studs
The festive season and year-end parties are the time to indulge in shine and shimmer and edgy studs, especially for your night look. Accessories with heavy hardware, sequins and high gloss and glitter finishes work best for people with big personalities and a strong sense of personal style.
Pair with dark leather to channel your inner biker, or be a pageant queen in head to toe sequins and shine. This look is not for the faint-hearted!
Among Reebonz’ picks are Versace Studded Medusa Wristlet Clutch for an added edge to your look.
For the diva in your life, present the Valentino Garavani Rockstud iPhone Case that will shine as bright!
