For a number of years at eQUIP, Julie has successfully predicted the latest trends, sourced and developed directional ranges and managed a strong team of Buyers, Designers and Suppliers all in a fast paced and ever changing market of accessories. Julie shares her top 3 key summer accessories trends:
1) NEON BRIGHTS AND COLOUR BLOCKING
Neon brights and colour blocking are the true stand out trends this Spring/Summer. Striking shades of electric blue, lime green, hot pink, purple and fluorescent orange and yellow will light up wardrobes everywhere.
With no room for modesty, this trend calls for dynamic and punchy combinations. For those who like it loud, make your bold colour choice pop with eQUIP’s coloured satchels (RRP: $19.99).
2) WHITE OUT
For those who shy away from bright lights, take refuge in the simplicity of the minimal all white trend this season which sees garments styled in sleek and simple silhouettes.
The key to pulling off this understated trend is to keep it sophisticated and simple, add a pair of eQUIP’s plain gold hoops and stack of wooden bangles in muted tones. For a more glam take on this look, wear one of eQUIP’s statement gold neckpieces which will deliver an elegant impact to your outfit (RRP: &24.99)
3) 70’S GLAM
The approach of warmer weather heralds the beginning of party season, and this year will see 70’s glamour take fashion by storm. High waisted wide leg trousers, printed jumpsuits, long slinky gowns with plunging necklines and platform heels inspired by Studio 54 heyday fashions will make a splash into night time fashion.
The key to mastering this retro trend is to accessorise with statement pieces. Cuffs, bangles and neckpieces in bright colours and mixed textures to offset these sophisticated fashions. Try eQUIP’s statement cuff (RRP: $19.99). For an easy daytime take on this trend, try a floppy hat to create effortless 70’s chic. eQUIP straw floppy hat (RRP: $19.99) is the perfect match.
