Cut Fashion a Fringe
As part of the 70s trend that’s making a comeback, tassel handbags and other fringed dresses are super stylish and add a bohemian chic flavour to your clothing. They’re especially great in neutral colors so that they’re more versatile with a variety of fashion choices. They’re also an easy way to incorporate 70s style without feeling straight out of That 70s Show, and can be worn with glamorous outfits for a night on the town.
Revive Your Grandma’s Brooch
Small jewelry details were caught causing a stir on fashion runways this year, with brooches being one of the best ways to give your outfit some dazzle. This is the perfect opportunity to flaunt your personal style. Pin one on your party dress, your stunning up-’do for a bit of bling in unexpected places, or on the sleeves of your cardi to thrill your fashion choices this summer.

Swing into Fashion
The pretty pendant is back this year and can be used to update a simple, neutral outfit because pendant designs are so striking this time around. For maximum effect, choose one in stunning colors or intricate designs to make it a statement piece of the season. The pendant is also versatile as it can be worn with other necklaces so that you create a layering effect. For instance, a long, delicate pendant will look great when worn with a chunky choker; on the other hand, a larger and bolder pendant necklace is better layered with very thin necklaces.
Lend an Ear
Huge earrings as well as those reminiscent of the 80s – think mismatched pairs – were also a hit on runways this year, but if that’s not really your speed, then try shoulder-dusters, as seen at Gucci, to give your ears a flash of fashion inspiration. The key is to rock old earring styles and dare to be creative again in how you wear them.
Wear a 90s Neck
Remember wearing a choker necklace in the 90s? Well, they’re back and trendier than ever. Think snug necklaces made with heavy metals or adorned in a stunning rainbow of gemstones to give them personality. It’s all about bringing attention to your neckline with bold designs and bright colors.
Be Clutched and Chic
When choosing a bag for the season, opt for one with an intriguing handle or strap to give you a unique look this year. Bags that are held creatively, such as with a small strap at the wrist or straps across the middle of a clutch bag so you can slide your hand through and carry them with comfort, are trendy in 2015. This is also a great way designers are bringing vintage styles, such as circular bags, back into the spotlight because their intriguing touches give them a unique edge.
Put Your Head Above the Rest
Your hair is the perfect place to inject some dazzle this year, with stone-encrusted headbands coming to the fore. This gives any outfit a romantic edge. While mermaid waves are still fashionable, this year the idea is to make the look even more striking, with delicate gold crowns and small hair clips to sweep the flashy 1920s back into the style files.
This year, take a trip back in history so you can solidify your style with elements from the 90s all the way to the 1920s. By merging old with new, you’ll create a fashionable yet unique look filled with personality.
