October Top 13: Fall Fashion Accessories
These days we fancy ourselves as some real accessory aficionados (check out www.amber-ash.com to find out why!) So naturally with the fall season in our midst, we decided to count down our favorite trends that took the runway by storm:
Velvet will be everywhere this fall, but our favorite way to wear it is on our shoes. Ankle boots are perfect for working into your everyday wardrobe (bonus points if you go for a pair of platforms).
Patches, pins and embroidery pay homage to the 70’s and your punk rock adolescence. You don’t have to pay Gucci prices for this look, but you could decorate your denim with pins from the Good Pin Club for a good cause!
Hooray for functional bags that won’t spill our stuff! Top knot bags in bucket styles are the perfect carry for fall — we like this studded one from Alexander Wang.
You don’t have to wear heels to get some extra height. Platform oxfords like these from Derek Lam maintain a boyish charm and keep you elevated.
“Neckerchiefs” are a lightweight accessory that works for any season, but especially fall. Take a cue from Chloé and knot a thin silk scarf or bandana around your neck to get the look.
In case you needed more evidence that punk’s not dead, we saw a hoard of combat boots on the runway, like these from Dolce & Gabbana. If you’re loving the look but not the price tag, tried and true Dr. Martens have a ton of cool styles in stock.
If only people could be as transparent as their clothes and accessories. This trend looks best (in our opinion) as jewelry. Take a look at designs from the King of Lucite, Alexis Bittar, and young artists like Shop Non Human who are pushing the boundaries of personal style.
Step 1: Buy a designer handbag. Step 2: Draw all over it. Case in point, Gucci x Gucci Ghost’s popular collection.
Big, waist-cinching statement belts bring a simple outfit up a notch, as we saw on the runways of Alexander McQueen, Maison Margiela and Moschino.
Rejoice! All of the mates to your lost earrings now have a purpose. Single statement earrings were seen at Louis Vuitton and Stella McCartney. Danish designer Maria Black boasts a cool collection at a great price point.
Chokers aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, in fact they’re just getting bigger and bolder, as seen on the runways of Balmain, YSL, and Oscar de la Renta.
Just remember, you don’t have to go big to make a statement. Minimalistic jewelry is chic and timeless. Visit our fellow Potrero Hill resident Soko for some new pieces!
Pom pom keychains were popularized by Fendi, but they’re easy to find at your local variety store. Plus we can’t stop touching them.
