Toronto Fashion Week trends: look-at-me accessories (seriously, look at them)
On day four of Toronto Fashion Week, those wild and crazy Canadian Catwalk kids demonstrated that Leandra Medine’s “arm party” is out, and “neck parties” are in. We spied cameos on more than one occasion, perhaps in a nod to romance, royalty and nostalgia, and men upped their neck game with curios replacing the ubiquitous bow tie (have an old shirt? Rip it up and sew some colourful buttons on it). “Jaunty” and “ostentatious” are among the adjectives we’d use to describe a person who feels compelled to carry an umbrella inside, sport a giant yellow hat or wear a velvet cape. We also spotted some bright, spring-like fluorescent colours, proving that our day-one report is completely accurate. Let our words be your trend gospel—big and bold accessories are all the rage.
