Accessories, these objects able to enhance or destroy any fashion design, are becoming increasingly important in catwalk parades of top designers; and major Fashion Weeks echo. In a season in which maximalism rules, accessories excess is not strident but primary to face low winter temperatures.

1 WARM “BEANIES” HATS After its rivalry with sophisticated leather hats with hair of the past seasons, casual “beanie” hats triumph this season.
A warm beanie knitted hat that invades the catwalks of designers like Missoni, Etro or Fausto Puglisi, and even dresses party outfits like Phillip Plein, Angelo Marani or Michael Kors. Perhaps to complement the revival of grunge looks or as a simple means to combat the winter cold, do not hesitate to get your own.
2 “OVERSIZED” SUNGLASSES Somehow, large sunglasses are here to stay. This is not an isolated trend, but combined with other guidelines in glasses; it is not a matter of adapting or not to the size and features of your face. So cover half of your face with them and experiment with everything, from double frame aviator style proposed by Carven to the tortoise shell frames and black crystal seen in Michael Kors.
The “fly eyes” are really taking over. Whether with double rimmed wire glasses of Prada, classic retro style with a touch totally artistic; to large Gucci style that make “nerd” style a maximum to follow; you cannot leave “oversized” sunglasses aside.
- FURRY STOLES When winter comes leather emerges. A material capable of transmitting a myriad of emotions with just a glance: warmth, comfort, caress, flirt and God knows what else. Fashion moves away from the traditional black and brown to cover us with color with furry scarves and stoles that promise to keep us warm and make winter an appetizing season.
Wear your fur stole in hand as in Dries Van Noten or Diane von Furstenberg or throw it gently on the shoulders as in Alberta Ferretti or Banana Republic, otherwise wrap it tightly around your neck as a long scarf that goes to the ground as in Vetements and Luisa Beccaria.
- NECK TIES Associated with gifts, surprises and other sweet things; romantic ties remain as a trend to bring a feminine touch to our looks.
From Dolce & Gabbana and its giant golden tie as a closing of a coat to more sophisticated proposals as seen in Sonia Rykiel, Temperley London, Tory Burch, Gucci and Custo Barcelona, neck ties occupy a prominent place in your winter wardrobe.
5 EXTREME CORSET BELTS No matter how beauty standards have changed throughout history, stylized waistlines will always be fashionable, as a symbol of femininity. This season, instead of wearing corsets under dresses as in ancient times, women wear them on them; creating ingenious contrasts of color and texture.
Corsets and corset belts hit winter catwalks with Louis Vuitton, Loewe, Anna Sui, Fendi, Salvatore Ferragamo, Antonio Marras, Bibhu Mohapatra and Luisa Beccaria among others.
6 MANY GLOVES They never presented such a variety of styles and nuances in gloves, from traditional in black and brown through a vibrant burst of color, this season you should cover your hands warmth and glamor.
So while Chanel bet on black and silver gloves, Alexander McQueen opts for snakeskin in vibrant pink. While long leather designs in “color block” of Louis Vuitton go against the short and super delicate seen in Oscar de la Renta and Mulberry; black long gloves, Airy blue and brown ones of Max Mara exude strength and confidence.
- EMBELLISHED SOCKS With the rise of a return to childhood and the “granny” style, when the days begin to cool; it is time to show off our open sandals with a pair of warm and elegant socks or stockings.
From chunky knit socks seen in 3.1 Phillip Lim to velvet socks of Erdem, going through printed with rhombus that accompany the “open-toe” of Prada to the striped ones from Gucci; contemporary interpretations of these accessories find other versions of vertigo in Markus Lupfer, Osman, Rochas, Tod and Anna Sui.
Some accessories not always easy to wear, that thanks to the various proposals made by luxury designers; they allow us to choose the one that suits our personality and tastes. And you, what do you choose: sobriety or excess?
