SS16 With Elliot Rhodes

Earlier this year I posted about my experience visiting one of the Elliot Rhodes stores (see here) and now I'm back with another post. If you don't already know Elliot Rhodes make custom belts with interchangeable buckles. We are already in SS16 now which means new fashions and trends - this goes for accessories too. Here are some of my tips and rules when it comes to accessorising with Elliot Rhodes this season.

IT'S OKAY NOT TO MATCH

It's important to remember that you don't always have to be matchy matchy. Note how amazing this pop of blue looks against my brown suit. While tan or black would have still looked nice the blue definitely takes the outfit to a whole different level.

PLAY AROUND WITH TEXTURES

T616 Neoprene Belt // 482B Buckle

Sometimes texture alone can make a strong statement. Here is a good example of that with the use of neoprene. When putting outfits together I always like to play around with textures as it can give a certain depth to a look. This is especially true when wearing one colour. 

REMEMBER YOUR WRIST
Blue Belt // 413B Buckle // Bracelet

With us headed into spring/summer it's most likely your sleeves are going to be rolled up, which is a good excuse to accessorise. Elliot Rhodes make these amazing bracelets that complement their belts - it's the perfect finishing touch. Similar to the belts their bracelets are a leather cuff with an interchangeable crystal buckle.

SNAKESKIN IS NEVER A BAD IDEA
Snakeskin is always a classic but for SS16 why not change it up and play around with different colours. I mean how perfect does this pink belt look with the rose gold buckle.

BLUR THE LINE BETWEEN SMART CASUAL

T616 Neoprene Belt // 553 Buckle

Here I'm wearing a neoprene belt which most would consider a casual material however this season it's all about blurring the line between smart casual. With trends such as sports luxe taking over why not introduce this idea to your accessories.

DON'T BE COLOUR SHY

T608 Yellow Belt //350E Cut Out Buckle

Be bold this spring/summer and think outside of the box with colours. Although you may think yellow as an unconventional colour for a belt, it seems to be working here. 

LIMITLESS BUCKLE CHOICES

The good thing with Elliot Rhodes is that they have limitless buckle options and they are so easy to change. It's as easy as changing your shoes :)

It's been so fun collaborating with these guys! Feel free to visit one the Elliot Rhodes stores located in St Christopher’s Place, Convent Garden and Chelsea. Also check them out on Twitter and Instagram.
