Accessory Trends Spring/Summer 2013
From L to R, first row: Burberry Prorsum, Ports 1961, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Bottega Veneta, Salvatore Ferragamo, John Bartlett
Sunglasses are an essential accessory because they are not only good at protecting your eyes from the bright sun but also at adding style to your look.
Colored and transparent frames are great for adding a splash of color to a monochrome look. The shades spotted on runways come in yellow, green, red as well as white. There are also many brown shades in matching frames that have a very classic feel to them.
The shapes vary from small rounded to wayfarer types. More sporty variations can be found in Louis Vuitton and Salvatore Ferragamo collections.
From L to R, first row: Diesel Black Gold, Canali, Ports 1961, Costumme National Homme, Salvatore Ferragamo, 3.1 Phillip Lim
Handbags take a more important place in modern man’s wardrobe than they used to. Choose between a holdall, a clutch or a document file bag this season to accessorize your look and add a splash of color to it.
Holdalls are great spacious bags that come in both sporty and classic styles. Made of textile or leather these bags feature handles and sometimes also a strap to carry them on a shoulder. Choose between more sporty designs of Diesel Black Gold and John Vartvatos and classic ones of Canali and Giorgio Armani.
Clutches are held in hands and come in such different forms and shapes – from envelope to a document folder where you can keep all the necessary work docs and carry them to the office instead of taking a whole suitcase with you. Although the latter also appeared in some collections.

Backpacks were seen in many summer collections. They are convenient but can also be stylish. Think leather, interesting shapes and punchy colors. Louis Vuitton offers an ultmiate luxury sports backpack with an external pocket in croc leather.
Headwear is also functional in summer but can add a unique touch to your look. Think light summer hats with simple styling paired with bright patterned neck scarves and light summer suits or trouser ensembles.
From L to R, first row: Acne, John Varvatos, Rag & Bone: second row, Gucci, Costume National Homme, Canali
Summer fedora and wide-brimmed hats spotted at Acne, Canali and Jogn Varvatos are great for wearing both to the office and the beach. Opt for wide-brimmed hats when going on vacation and use a light summer fedora to top off your offce suit.
A paperboy cap is a great alternative to a brimmed hat if you want a more casual look. Designers offer to wear it with a light neck scarf in one tone with the cap or blazer. Speaking of scarves they can be used in summer instead of ties as they finish off the outfits but also look more laid back. They are easy to tie and wear with anything from a suit to everyday clothes.
From L to R, first row: John Bartlett, DSquared2, Gucci; second row. Diesel Black Gold, DSquared2, Ann Demeulemeester
Bracelets are getting more popular and thus there are many more variations of them. Look for designs that suit your style and taste. Gucci offer a subtle leather bracelet embellished with a chain while in collection by DSquared2 you can find bolder variants. Necklaces should be long and bold this season. There are some great designs in Diesel Black Gold and DSquared2 collections while Ann Demeulemeester showed thick chains intertwined with ribbons and thinner chains.
Take some time to figure out what accessories work for you and what designs you like the most. Don’t be afraid to experiment with the accessories as they add detail and complete your outfits.
