Get Glamorous with Gorgeous Accessory Trends for 2013

There's nothing like adding fabulous new accessories to bring a tired old outfit right up to date. This article looks at the top accessory trends for 2013   whether you're looking for jewellery, shoe, hats or bags.

Colour is Key
Monochrome - Whether it's two-tone shoes, handbags or clothes, monochrome (that's good old black and white!) has never been hotter. Look out for chessboard style patterns and classic dogtooth which were all over the spring catwalk shows and most definitely this season's equivalent of colour blocking.
Pastels   On the other hand, pastels are taking over from last season's gaudy brights and neons. Pale pinks, baby blues and soft yellows make the most gorgeous handbags and satchels even cuter and are really easy colours to wear. Use them to add a splash of soft colour to an all-black outfit or to contrast with a gorgeous pastel blazer.

Gold   Not just for jewellery (although that will never go out of fashion), gorgeous gold accessories are everywhere this spring. From magnificent metallic strappy sandals to stunning shiny handbags, the fashion houses just couldn't get enough of this versatile hue. Large, heavy gold chains adorn bag handles, shoes and even belts as well as necklaces. Of course, nothing says "simple style" like some gorgeous gold and diamond jewellery   a must have for every occasion and every outfit.

Is Bigger Better?
Over the Top   This season's accessories are big, bold and totally over the top. Think knee-high gladiator sandals, huge swirling hats and elaborately detailed, towering wedge heels. And forget stilettos as spring's best shoes have chunky heels and super high platforms. Yippee! When it comes to jewellery, one piece is never enough: wear more than one chain for maximum impact or stack your rings to create a unique piece of jewellery to suit your personality.

Teeny Tiny Bags   Bags on the other hand should be scaled right down. Unlike shoes and jewellery, this season's bags are dinky. With literally enough room for your lipstick, mobile phone and cash, they are super cute and great for nights out. Chain handles and tiny clutches are set to rule the high street this season.

Make a Statement - swap your usual studs and choose to stand out from the crowd with some really fabulous statement earrings. Whether your choose colour waterfall crystals, elaborate diamond chandeliers or extravagantly details drops, earrings this season are huge and eye-catching.
Sparkle and Shine   Fabulous jewellery never, ever goes out of fashion. That's why it's really worth investing in good quality diamond jewellery to complement and look gorgeous with any outfit   for any occasion. Gold or platinum diamond jewellery is versatile and easy to wear anywhere from the office to bar; school run to date night.

So, get set for spring with your pick of accessories from shoe designers, jewellery brands and handbag stylists and breathe a new lease of life into old outfits.
