The Trend Report: AW21 Accessories
Dipping into our guide to AW21’s finest ready-to-wear trends might have your outfit sorted, but a good look is nothing without the perfect accessories. Discover the top trends from the new season that we’re shopping now.
It’s high time to gallop into AW21’s proverbial sunset with a truly excellent crop of boots. This season is all about blending the traditional equestrian silhouette with a sexier edge - think snug, elasticated leather that in the case of Givenchy, Versace and Khaite, creeps up to thigh-high. Where Bottega Veneta, Totême and Marsèll are concerned, it’s about sharp, modern shapes - these boots mean business.
Dare To Bare
Slip your feet into something sexy with AW21’s take on the peekaboo shoe. This time it comes in the form of transparent PVC textures (look to Amina Muaddi, Gianvito Rossi and Mach & Mach), slim barely-there sandal straps (Jil Sander and Bottega Veneta), or cutaway details from - you’ve guessed it - Khaite’s Cate Holstein.
Let It Rain
If you’re going to splish splash the cash on anything this season, let it be on some of AW21’s more practical accessories offerings - in this case stylish-yet-weatherproof options from the likes of Bottega Veneta, Burberry, Valentino and Chloé. Think neat gumboots; wipe-clean textures; drench-proof styles that practically dare it to downpour. After all, you can always carry some of the aforementioned barely-there shoes in your handbag for an easy eveningwear swap.
If there’s one thing we can all align on, it’s the fact that the onset of winter calls for a little TLC. Hence this season’s designers decided to offer us some furry friends to accompany our cold-weather looks, taking teddy bear textures in a stylish direction with fuzzy shoes and cuddly bags that you’ll want to hold tight to all season long.
