Time to accessorize for the Durban July ! Finding the right accessories should be the least of your worries, after all you’ve spent enough time stressing over your outfit. Now is the time to add the finishing touches to pull off your magical look!
As ladies, we love to accessorize! However this task can be a bit tricky as we don’t want it to be too much or too little. We also don’t want to take away any attention from our outfit. So, to accessorize your look for this year’s biggest horse racing event, take a look at the trends listed below and make sure you’re fit for the event and of course the theme!
First up in is the never-ending trend of fascinators. This hair accessory will have you feeling like Duchess Kate Middleton who is often seen wearing various styles of fascinators. Don’t think that it’s too much because it actually looks simple yet elegant at the same time.
Since the theme is magic, it would be ideal to choose a fascinator that not only matches your outfit but fits the theme as well. Magicians wear top hats – why not go for a mini-top hat fascinator? If your dress seems to be a little over the top and dramatic – choose a simple fascinator to ensure that you’re still keeping up with the latest trends.
Gloves & Masks
Now if you really feel like dressing up, accessorize with gloves and masks. These are a must and fit in perfectly with the magical theme. Think of Gatsby gloves and masks. These are elegant and classy and will definitely work with any dress, be it short or long.
However, if your dress is a little off the shoulder or too revealing at the top and you are worried that you might feel cold this July, pick out a favourite winter trend – shawls. Try to pick out a neutral colour to lift your look in a simple way. Try white, black, grey or brown. Remember to try and not take away too much attention from your dress.
Spending big bucks this year? Keep your valuables safe and still keep up with the trend of clutch bags. Don’t go for a big one that will have you feeling uncomfortable all-day long. Here you can go all out and accessorize in bold block colours that either go with your outfit or draw some attention away from your outfit.
