Art Deco, old Hollywood glamour, the 1950s… all popular vintage wedding themes for 2014, and all requiring vintage-style accessories! We caught up with accessory expert Susie Warner who has just launched her diffusion range Love Susie, and asked her to pick out some of her favourite pieces…
The perfect… hair accessory
The perfect hair accessory should make a bride feel just like a princess. Whether you choose a headdress, hair comb or hair pins, hair accessories can add a subtle dash of sparkle to your ‘do.
One of our absolute favourites is Mae (from our Coquette range of hair accessories), a beautifully pretty side headdress embroidered with sparkling diamanté and vintage glass beads. This lovely headband has a subtle vintage style and complements a huge variety of themes, from Edwardian elegance through to Hollywood glamour.
The perfect… necklace
Your perfect necklace can be a focal point in your outfit – drawing attention to areas you would like to enhance and elongating your neck, as well as complementing the beauty of your dress.
We just love Violet (from our Trousseau range), a beautiful Art Deco-influenced piece. The delicate open Sterling Silver teardrop pendant is set with sparkling Cubic Zirconia and embellished with freshwater pearls.
We can rarely resist a little glitter, too, and Treasure (from our Love Susie diffusion range), is another one of our favourites – a pretty vintage-inspired pendant combining a good dash of diamanté sparkle with a hint of freshwater pearl.
The perfect … earrings
The right style of earring can elongate your neck, draw attention to fabulous cheekbones and accentuate the colour of your eyes. Whether you choose a statement chandelier, pretty drops or simply classic pearl studs with a twist, earrings give a little lift to your entire look.
Cosette (from our Trousseau range) is one of our loveliest earring designs. Inspired by true Art Deco style, these gorgeous earrings have a long sinuous linked drop, and combine the beautiful lustre of freshwater pearls with a subtle dash of sparkling Cubic Zirconia.
Sweetie (from our Love Susie diffusion range) is also very popular with real-life brides – a small earring drop style mixing a hint of diamanté with a beautiful larger freshwater pearl. These simple drop earrings are very easy to wear, and would look stunning long after the big day.
The perfect… bracelet
The perfect bridal bracelet can enhance the delicacy of your wrist, show off your ring, complement the design and fabric of your dress or even add a subtle splash of colour.
One of our favourites is Paramour (from our Love Susie diffusion range), a gorgeous take on the classic pearl bracelet with a twist, this pretty style shows off a beautiful diamante sparkle mixed with vintage glass beads and freshwater pearls. A brilliant bracelet to take you right through your day from engaged to married!
