HI-SHINE

The Jewish Chronicle - JC Magazine - - Accessories -

THE 1960s ob­ses­sion with all things space-age cul­mi­nated in fash­ion’s adop­tion of shiny plas­tics, me­tal­lic and patent leather fin­ishes. This love of all things shiny is again echoed in spring ac­ces­sories. Both metal bracelet watches (Guess has su­perb ones in rose gold), enamel, mesh and chain jew­ellery are hav­ing a re­vival, while foil-coated fab­rics are used for ev­ery­thing from head­bands to hand­bags.

Patent leather hand­bags and shoes, or cheaper plas­tic al­ter­na­tives, give the right 1960s vibe, along with vi­brant hoop ear­rings and fun plas­tic jew­ellery, a good con­trast to mono colours. Check out Ted Baker and Marks & Spencer for ideas. It’s an easy look to im­i­tate, so have some fun with it — as long as you didn’t wear it the first time around.
