Our previous guide on retro frames may have inspired you to think about the perfect match between your fashion accessories and jewellery pieces. Vintage designer bags are a great way to accessorise pre-owned William May jewellery.

A selection of vintage handbags and clutches that can elevate your look, complement our retro jewellery and give outfit accessories a sustainable second chance can be found at The Handbag Clinic. Taking inspiration from archived red carpet looks from Kendall Jenner, Jennifer Aniston and Miley Cyrus, here are a few suggestions on how you can find the perfect match between your vintage designer handbag and our pre-loved jewellery pieces.

Fendi-inspired Neutral Browns and Gold Hoops

Chocolate browns, caramel creams and sandy camel colours are making a comeback, showcased in red carpet appearances in contemporary looks by Kendall Jenner. For the full neutral vintage look, pair a vintage Fendi baguette handbag with William May’s figure 8 twisted hoop earrings. Earth tones of amber, sand, clay and walnut seals a contemporary vintage look from the 90s.

Classic Monochrome with Silver Drop Earrings

Pairing silvers, creams, whites and blacks in a classic vintage monochrome look makes accessories the centre of attention. Recreate Jennifer Anniston’s vintage award ceremony look with William May’s silver cubic drop line earrings to add sparkle to simplicity. A block-coloured clutch with silver detail creates an effortless yet elegant evening look.

Electric block colours, leather textures and chunky chains channel the 70s garage punk look. Let the accessories do the talking with William May’s best selling silver chunky chains to complete the grungey look. Chains are really having their moment - pair with a vintage crossbody chain bag to bring the 70s punk trend to your wardrobe.

Y2K Jewellery - Boho resurrected

The dawn of festival chic, with suede fringe designer bags, sunshine yellow frames and dainty jewellery pieces. Y2K fashion trends are having more than one moment in the limelight:  think coloured stone sparkles, delicate charm bracelets, silver pendant necklaces and butterfly drop earrings seen on the likes of Britney Spears, Dua Lipa and Ariana Grande.
