Accessories Trends of Fall- Winter 2012/13


The gaiters

After the return of mule slippers for the summer of 2012, the cold season witnesses another comeback: that of gaiters. In overboot form with Victoria Beckham and Anthony Vaccarello or as a soft sock with Alexander McQueen, the gaiter has returned in fashion, but in the fluorescent sport version of the 90s. The atmosphere of baroque romanticism brought along by the Dolce & Gabanna show was enhanced by the different styles of gaiters made of various fabrics such as leather and lace.

Long gloves

Another accessory that could be seen everywhere on the catwalks -  the long gloves are worn on bare arms and obviously, if temperatures permit, with very short sleeves. They have different lengths – below or just above the elbow – and most of them are white or black. However, they can also be colored, such as the blue or red models by Lavin, finished with sparkles and accompanying exquisite evening gowns.

The corset belt

The belt is essential accessory for the winter season of 2012/13. The more adventurous have the possibility to opt for the XL version of a corset belt which will be worn squarely on top of the jacket or coat for a radical look. Leather with Haider Ackermann, fabric with Fendi or steel with Acne, closed with a buckle or straps, the oversized belts structure the silhouette. They can have rounded shapes or they can come in the traditional form, but they all highlight the waist and the bust

The cap

Last but not least, women’s heads did not remain unaccessorized and they will be adorned during the cold season by peaked or neo newsboy style caps for a casual chic look. It comes in the shape of a church bell with Louis Vuitton, while with Hermes, it is a merely masculine black hat.
