After addressing the season’s key looks and clothing trends, Debbie Norman, manager of BORN clothing in Newtownsmith — winner of Galway’s Best Fashion Retailer 2010 — outlines the key accessory trends for spring/summer 2011.
With the warmer weather comes the need to update your sunglasses collection with a new and on-trend style. For spring 2011 the best accompaniment to a vintage-inspired look is a shape that screams fifties/sixties glamour. From the very subtle to the extreme, pop into BORN clothing and see our affordable sunglasses range.
Fringe bags have gone from a current trend to a classic staple in every woman's wardrobe. Incorporated with modern designs and features, fringe bags present the bohemian chic inspired look and are great way to introduce this season’s seventies glamour trend to your wardrobe. BORN offers many variations of this fringe bag look in several different colours and shapes from only €30.
Skull print scarves
Skulls are an integral motif on many scarves, inspired by world famous designer Alexander Mc Queen’s collection. Celebrities like Nicole Ritchie and Cameron Diaz have made this fashion accessory a must-have. This season BORN has a selection of bright coloured skull print scarves in store which are a great way to funk up and add a splash of colour to any outfit.
The nautical look is one trend that we see reinvented every spring/summer. This year rope belts are a must-have element of this look. They are available at BORN in a range of versions — plaited, thick, and slim, in several key colours, camel, cognac, tan, and classic black. They are a great finishing touch to any outfit.
