Big bags in bold prints. The weekend bag is the must-have accessory this fall, helping you capitalise on its functionality as well as its style. However, if you’re no fan of the structured shape of the weekender, search the bags at Avenue 32 and grab a backpack of a similar size with a bold animal print or a tribal-inspired design. Remember, the more whimsical, the better, so don’t be afraid to mix and match these prints with your boldest outfits.
Statement necklaces. Last year, we saw the bib necklace dominate the fashion industry, and it’s back with a vengeance this fall. Statement jewellery, such as necklaces hung with gold-plated tear drops or chainmail, transcend their function as accessories and truly become the focal piece of any ensemble. Go pair it with a button-up collared blouse or a dress with a plunging neckline to make this trend work for you.
White. This bright style statement is no longer a faux pas after summer’s end. In fact, it will be showing up everywhere this fall and winter. White handbags, shoes, belts, and jackets will bring a little light to the shorter days of autumn and the gloomy days of winter this year. If you want to try this trend, go for a clear, crisp white, and steer clear of shades like eggshell and cream.
Metallic court shoes. From spikes on the heel to pointy toes adorned with gold, the most glam body parts this season may just be feet. The shiny shoe trend became popular because celebrities sported the likes of the more opulent gold and silver versions of Christian Louboutin’s Unbout Illusion court shoes and Kurt Geiger’s Esme pump. Pair your with classic jewellery choices like simple gold hoops to make an elegant entrance.
Red lips. The deep pinks and pastel purples of summer lip shades will give way to romantic reds this fall and winter. As a timeless makeup option, red lipstick is a way to instantly give life to any ensemble, whether it features an over-sized grey sweater or a little black dress. Aim for brighter reds during the day, and layer on more wine-like colours for a night out.
