Fall Fashion 2009 Trend Forecast: Accessories
Investing in a robust collection of accessories is the easiest and most cost-efficient way to add variation to your wardrobe. Bigger is better when it comes to the complementary pieces this season, but style experts advise to mix with more simplistic ensembles to create a put-together look.
Feathers, fur and fringe
Fur isn't all ostentatious coats and wraps this fall. Instead, the trend creeps into everything from headbands and handbags to hats and belts. A touch of fur -- whether faux or real -- offers just the right amount of coziness and warmth to an outfit. Feathers are finding their way onto earrings, clutches and broaches, too. If you're not into fur, Suzanne Colmer of Your Shop Girl recommends a fringe look instead. It has the same impact as the other two adornments without the high maintenance.
