7 Fall accessory trends
This fall, accessory trends are all over the map, from bold looks like gold cuff bracelets, collar necklaces, animal prints and lots of faux fur to elegant clutches and 1940s-style ankle-strap shoes. Here are a few fall trends you will find irresistible.
wild for scarves
Scarves continue to be on trend for fall and are showing up in bold colors, animal prints and even faux fur. Loosely loop a lightweight scarf around your neck to spice up a tee or sweater. Throw on a heavier scarf with your jacket or coat to keep out the cold in style. This faux cheetah pull-through scarf can add pizzazz to camel and black wool coats all winter long. It's perfect also over a heavy sweater on a crisp fall day.
Your new favorite tote
Fur is everywhere, even on your favorite totes and handbags. Be prepared to see fur trims, handles and linings on bags this season, and don't be surprised to see bags completely covered in fur. This mohair tote is just one example. Use your tote for work, shopping or casual evenings out.
Bold new bracelets
Bold, gold cuff bracelets are a must in every woman's wardrobe this fall. Worn snugly on the wrist, these fashion statements are the perfect accessory to your work or play wardrobe. Make sure that it's snug on your wrist, that its width suits your arm length, and that no details snag on your clothing. This gold cuff goes easily from day to night and adds style to any outfit.
This fall's shoes are reviving the 1940s ankle strap, but with a bolder look. Ankle straps are showing up on sandals, pumps and even booties, with narrow, wide and crisscross straps. Show off your ankle strap shoes with skirts and dresses of all lengths -- as well as the new capri pants out this fall. This pair of sandals with bold silver accents shows how sexy the new ankle strap look can be.
Snuggly fur vests
Think 1960s bohemian: The fur vest is back with a vengeance and comes in various lengths, styles and colors. Wear a cropped fur vest over a long sweater or tee; try a long fur vest belted over your favorite jeans or leggings. Fur vests are at home over dressy and casual clothes and can be worn in lieu of a jacket. This cream faux fur vest shows how cozy and versatile a fur vest can be.
Cleopatra wore them, so why not you? The bold look of the collar necklace is showing up everywhere in gold, silver, beads and crystals. Whether smooth or chunky, these necklaces are big and are part of the more-is-better trend. You can wear this necklace with anything – v-necks, crews, scoop or even over a closed collared shirt. Wear a spectacular one with your favorite evening dress or a chunky, fun one with your weekend tee.
A dazzling clutch is the perfect bag for an evening out. Celebrities carry clutches to all the important events, and so should you. Beaded, jeweled and sequined clutches are glitzy and glamorous for evening, while leather, fabric and faux fur clutches make excellent day accessories. Tip: Never overpack a clutch to the point that it loses its shape. This beaded covertible clutch is the perfect evening bag; carry it by its beaded handle or hide the handle away inside the purse and hold as a clutch.
