There’s no better way to spice up your wardrobe this fall than with some on-trend accessories. This season, adornments across catwalks have been bigger and brighter than ever before. So whether you’re into statement jewelry, or eye-catching bags are more your thing, there’s no time like the present to get on-board the bolder is better trend. This handpicked selection of fall must-haves will ensure you’ll be showing off your favorite accessories all the way through the holiday party season and in to the spring.
Belts are back
Okay, they never really left, but belts of all shapes and sizes definitely made an impression on this season’s catwalks. Belts are the go to accessory for adding that ‘put-together’ look to any outfit. Think waist-emphasizing designs over trench coats and jackets, or scarf bracelets, as seen on Maison Margiela sale, with trousers for a more dramatic silhouette. Block colors in bright shades from coral to cobalt are also perfect for adding oomph to a simple tee and jeans, or you can opt for a western-style design, to give your look an edgier vibe.
This fall trend is here to make your life a lot easier, apparently. Seen on catwalks at Marc Jacobs, Fendi and Chloe, their novel bag designs will leave you with both arms to spare. Whether it’s hanging from the neck or slung around your waist, this season’s go to bags are all about going hands-free. The best way to make the new neck bag trend work for you is to keep the rest of your look casual too. It’s all about relaxed fits, oversize knits and unstructured jackets. However cool it may look, the trend does have its limits. It’s definitely a case of fashion over function as the bags are best kept relatively light to avoid unwanted neck pain.
Add glamour with gloves
This fall, it’s not just about throwing on a pair of wooly gloves to keep you fingers toasty, it’s all about old Hollywood-style glamour. The higher your gloves extend up your arm, the more on trend you’ll be. Think elbow-length leather in bold colors like fuchsia and plum. Or, if you’re feeling daring, go fingerless and full-length, as seen on the F/W 18 Chanel catwalk. Make sure the rest of your look is equally elegant by toning down any other accessories.
Furry and fun
Textured accessories are everywhere this season so why not add a furry friend to your wardrobe? Faux fur designs, from clutches to totes, took over catwalks and stole the show at Alexander Wang and Balenciaga. If you’re looking to try out the trend but not sure where to begin it’s better to start small and opt for a shoulder bag in darker shades. If you’re confident about embracing it from the get-go then choose an oversize clutch in the boldest color you can find.
