Sorry Minimalists, It’s Time to Stockpile Your Accessories

One cursory glance at the line sheets from next season's main designer collections and it's clear the vibe is 'more-is-more', especially among the accessories ranks. And for any reasonable doubt from the minimalists out there, Phoebe Philo's models wore earrings and a necklace plus a bracelet at Céline S/S 16 show, so the fashion gods are most certainly in the mood for abundance.

Never before has there been a time to open up your jewellery box with a playful jaunt and dare to load on three rings like the cool girls at Saint Laurent and Gucci. Perhaps you've been in this space for many seasons, like the Miu Miu set, or maybe you've been channelling Christopher Kane and steadily building up to a life lived in pop art colour, and vibrant, anything-goes accessories? Whatever style space you're currently occupying, the sage-like wisdom of Coco Chanel—take off one accessory before leaving the house—is still in play, but we're just appropriately piling on more in the first place. Read on to feel justified in doing so!

Scroll down for a catwalk 101 on S/S 16 accessory trends, and then, shop some of favourite magpie-attracting pieces to wear on repeat.
