My next trend tip showcases a great classic look, which is very versatile and will easily work in your existing wardrobe. Tan leather accessories have been seen across the Spring/Summer 2010 catwalks in different forms. At D&G tan leather belts, boots and bags were shown mixed with faded denim and cowboy shirts, creating a cool low key attitude. At By Marlene Birger and Bottega Veneta the tan accessories were teamed with white outfits making an elegant fresh look.
The tan leather belt in particular was seen in many collections. It was shown with simple elegant outfits, such as at Burberry Prorsum, where a wide tan belt beautifully completed a metallic mini trench and at Hermes, where the classic tan leather belt finished off an off-white blouse and long shorts. At Diane Von Furstenberg the tan leather belt was seen in a more excessive tribal look with a metal plate buckle mixing with the striking printed dresses.
There was another interesting trend where designers matched their tan leather accessories to the rest of the outfit. For example at Hermes, one outfit showed the leather belts and cuffs matching the jacket and another showed the light tan cuffs and wider belt matching the leather mini-dress and another matching a flowing floor length dress of the same colour tan. At Loewe this trend continued with a bag that exactly matched a knee-length leather trench coat and sun-visor.
