Just like the very flavour of summer - blended in a drink altogether, the fashion for summer of 2019 is a perfect mixture of brights, pastels, ease, glams and comfort! The summer fashion trends for women include the classic and elegant fashion styles of trousers and blazers, maxi dresses, slip dresses, structured shirts, pleated skirts and milkmaid tops, with minimalistic styles when it comes to bags and ease and comfort for shoes. The effortless path to exploring the best complimenting shoes for the attires stops at the vast category of sandals, sliders, mules and clogs. The bags as to be considered the value-added accessories are in fashion with shades of blue and beige in clutch bags and tote bags whereas the chic shade of black in the classic backpacks!

Easy Sneakers And Backpacks

Trainers and backpack paired with denim shorts or jeans is the ultimate king of comfort and classic summer appeal. The trainers have been in trend since last year and haven’t really gone out. Trainers in white and beige are perfect summer attire with ease and comfort fused with style, and the glam of prints. The graphic details added, is the millennial twist to the modern yet chic trainer design. When paired with milkmaid tops of bright shades and denim shorts or jeans or a summer dress, trainers can be encorporated into a casual outfit for the beach or even a day out shopping!

Sandals And Clutch Bags

Sandals are the ultimate all-rounder for fashion trends in shoes, with heeled sandals and strappy sandals in black, glimmers of metallic and jewels are perfect alternatives for the less comfortable stilettos and high heels! Small heeled sandals in black are perfect for formal as well as semi-formal party settings, and the flat strap sandals in gold and silver, glammed with jewels are perfect for a relaxed party attire, paired with playsuits or maxi dresses. The strappy heeled sandals in metallic shades also offer a complimenting look to midi dresses or split skirts and dresses as well. Sandals paired with a clutch bag is a multi-purpose duo for many settings!

Sliders And Mules

Sliders and mules are the ultimate casual attire when it comes to dressing for the summer season. The sliders in tan shades offer a perfect compliment to the classic pleated skirt-structured shirt duo this summer. Mules in black with kitten heels, provide comfort and stylish design to the vintage checked blazer-suit outfit for professional as well as casual days-out. Alternatively, brightly coloured mules worn with a simple dress, or coupled with baggy jeans and a thin knit top, offer that vintage look. Sliders and mules are perfect example of summer fashion which is easy and comfortable, yet still having high-end fashion appeal.

Essential rules for appropriate accessories

The fashion industry is evolving like never before.

With such a vast set of available accessories its hard to distinguish the right amount of additional 'stuff' that can enhance your look.

In a hope to appear more captivating, we tend to over exaggerate our style without the need for it in the first place.

The question is - how to avoid the unnecessary details of your look?

Let us take a look at what things you need to avoid in order to look tasteful and chic.

The Right Choice For The Right Occasion

The first rule to remember is that you should find accessories that compliment the colour of your outfit and your complexion.

A handbag is generally an accessory every woman needs to invest in, and choosing a high quality, and appealing Italian leather purse will match nearly any combination of clothing.

The right handbag, in a nutral colour can go with many styles and colours of clothing, and will stand the test of time and fashion changes too.

Bright colours in handbags and accessories such as scarves can be great, but be careful to choose them wisely so that you dont look more of a parrot than someone who has an undisputed taste for fashion.

Whenever you are unsure about your definitive choice of colours in accessories, go for blacks, whites and nutral tones, that prove to be adequate for nearly any occasion.

Details That Capture Everyone's Eye

Keep in mind that it is conceivable to combine large accessories together in one outfit, but there should never be more than two or three of them since you will never want to look overdressed.

Connecting with the material your accessories are made from is generally the right choice, and it can easily show off the level of style that you possess with just the right simple choice.

Try to conclude specifically what is that you want to achieve with your style, and only then add the additional accessories that will enhance the wanted outcome.

Needless to say, your makeup must be made out of colours that build on your outfit, or in a stylish contrast, which might even be the better choice for most occasions.

When in doubt, going for classic and traditional choices is always the right idea, since the general rule "Less is more" does indeed apply to your style and you never know who will compliment your outlook, with the stylish simplicity that you brought with yourself in your new favourite outfit.

For many, autumn and winter are a new chance to swap out those summer and spring styles for cold weather classics, like fuzzy sweaters, knit hats, and purses that complement your seasonal attire. It’s time to start off fresh again, and breathe some life into your wardrobe! Don’t throw away all your old bags, but adding some new classics to your closet for the new season will help make it easy to create the wardrobe looks you wait all year long to show off! Here are a few purse styles and shapes that will help you upgrade your collection from old to new again - without completely modifying your current collection.

Micro-mini

Minimising is in and with these micro minis all you need is your phone, credit card, and a lip gloss for the perfect night out. This is ideal for those cocktail dress nights out on the town, where you don’t want to lug around your regular mini bag.

Unique Clutches

The classic clutch never goes out of style. This autumn and winter, try a clutch that is a little more unique, like a hard plastic acrylic bag or a woven clutch - they make for an artistic touch to any outfit, and are a true statement pieces of their own. You can find simple envelope style cross-body clutches, as well as intricate textured designs. Try pairing these with a casual pair of jeans and blouse to really make it stand out.

Doctor Bag

This old-school look will have you replacing your classic totes with a much cleaner and more professional look. Totally roomy, you’ll love stuffing this bag with all your work and daily necessities! Match this with any office look or your date night apparel for a sophisticated style that’s versatile for your day-to-night lifestyles.

Belted Bags

You may be thinking fanny pack at the mention of belt bags, but this strappy design is a great autumn accessory, especially when hitting up those outdoor activities and festivals. Out of sight and out of mind, the strap fits snug around your waist when adjusted properly and won’t steal the show away from your outfit. When you’re out and about, pair your belt bag with your favourite leggings and comfy sweater!

Decorative Pouches

Not quite a clutch, and not quite a wrist-let, this combo makes it easy to grab and go. The pouch design is also super flexible, and makes it easy to throw in all sorts of necessities without cramming items in like a puzzle to fit just right. This little bag makes the perfect accessory for those fun dates nights! Whether you’re hitting the local carnival, or go-kart raceway, this flexible bag will look great with your semi-casual attire.

Scarf Strap

Yes, that’s right! A purse with a scarf strap has the combination of fashion and convenience — all in one. The soft strap won’t weigh heavy on your neck and shoulder, and will look creative too! Scarf straps allow more room for creativity, with bold and exciting patterns, and colours that add a little something to your little black dress.

Circle Purse

This little sidekick will look classy when you match it with your sleek trouser suit outfits.

Bucket Bags

There’s a new modern twist to the traditional bucket bag. These bags keep their structured design, but offer a little more fashion to them with special designs like woven looks to add a little something to your everyday attire. The bucket style makes it easy to carry an assortment of things with you at all times. Whether you’re a mum on-the-go or a busy manager, this is the bag that has all the room you need.
