Opera Lane’s resident stylist on the top accessories trends to try now
Brought to you by Opera Lane.
Newsflash: summer is coming.
It may not feel like it right now, but before you know it you’ll be ditching the cosy cardis in favour of swishy dresses and sleeveless tops.
In the meantime however, the simplest way to update your current staples for spring is to add a few carefully chosen accessories to the mix and Opera Lane stylist Breeda O’Connell has been scouring the latest arrivals for the best bits to buy now.
“When it comes to shoes and accessories we’re seeing lots of bright colour and metallics,” O’Connell told Yay Cork.
“In shoes, we’re seeing lots of slingbacks, both heeled and flat, and again lots of bright colour. Expect some different versions of the classic Mary Janes, as well as Noughties mules too.
“To pair with your suiting, there are glamourous stiletto heels aplenty but trainers, ballet flats and loafers are the staples you need to have and they’re all available on Opera Lane.
“In jewellery, pearls, statement pieces, colour and floral prints also extend from dresses to 3D, in the form of jewellery and corsages.”
