When you’re dressed up in a Decode 1.8 style, you’ll definitely want trendy fashion accessories to go with it. Here are the must-have looks of the summer season.
The biggest takeaway: The most on-point trends for summer 2018 are sharp, bold statement accessories. The other must-haves are classic items with modern twists, like cross-body bags with shorter straps, or traditional cuff bracelets worn in multiples.
And surprise is the key. If you dare to grab the spotlight, try pairing a classic little black dress set off with red block heels, like our sleeveless, beaded-neck, short dress (#183865) in jersey knit.
Another surprising accessory are sunglasses. Say goodbye to the large, round look that has been popular for several seasons, and hello to tiny, narrow, and slim — sometimes called “Matrix” glasses after those worn in the movie. They add a sharp look to any outfit, and look edgy paired with our short black lace dress (#184146) with its spaghetti straps and illusion hem.
Shoes have gone wild for summer, from bold platforms to see-through pumps. One runway look that disappeared for awhile but has now made a come-back is the classic, pointy-toed pump. These would work beautifully with our 2018 collection, like our strapless, color-block long gown (#184377). The drama of this dress with its thigh-high slit simply begs for dramatic shoes to match.
Speaking of drama, earrings are dripping with it this season: large statement hoops or glitzy shoulder-grazing chandeliers. Try them with any one of our more formal gowns, like our elegant one-shoulder, scallop-edged, red-lace creation (#183668).
Bracelets are demanding attention too. You’ll want to wear the on-trend cuffs in our stunning beaded illusion fit-and-flare gown (#183457). This fashion-forward jersey-knit dress perfectly sets off any size figure, and allows plenty of freedom to move.
Chokers are back, and a shimmery rhinestone one would be the finishing touch to our strapless, faux, two-piece lace gown (#183967). With its mermaid silhouette and sweetheart neckline, you’re sure to look stunning.
As we mentioned earlier, cross-body bags with shorter straps that hit just below the bust are popular. There are many styles to rock with cross-body bags, but we recommend straw or jewel-toned velvet. Try one in straw with our short green printed brocade dress (#184500) with its fit-and-flare silhouette.
Wherever you go or whatever you do this summer, remember Decode 1.8 has you covered perfectly.
