With the Mercedes Benz fashion week having been a few days ago, we look at some of the best accessories that came out of fashion week.  Some of the hottest accessories spotted on the runway included fashion forward and dramatic colours of straw hats, bangles and bags. While these maybe a little too high fashion, they are certainly statement pieces that will turn a head or two. 

1. Straw hat

Orapeng Modutle showed off a bright pink sun hat that would be perfect for sitting in the sun at a high tea picnic.
