Fall 2013 Accessories Trends 

This fall, it's all about the accessories. Earlier this month we posted on Fall 2013 clothing trends featuring structured suits, grey shades, big coats, and several other styles from the runway. I personally have reservations about the big coat trend (who wants to add tons of bulk in heavy fabrics and lose their shape while adding the illusion of extra weight?! Not I!). Despite the questionable trends, there is some hope this season in purses, and jewelry. Every good fashionista knows that accessories can make or break an outfit. We’ve picked the top accessory trends, check them out:

 1. Earrings

Fall 2013 Earring Trends

 

 

Statement Earrings are a favorite highlight of mine for this season. I always love great jewelry and earrings add drama to your outfit and highlight facial features. Best worn with up-dos , this trend may mean you need to take a break on the statement necklaces to prevent dramatic over-do. Pearls were also quite prevalent in jewelry and could be worn in studs, details, or as a component of a statement chandelier earring. Honorable mention to sterling silver and metallic jewelries.

2. Shoes

Fall 2013 Shoe trends

 

 

Just the word “shoes” makes me smile. But I was a bit underwhelmed with most of the shoe trends for this season. I’ll be opting out of most of the “boyfriend” shoe trend. Leave the clunk-masters to your neighborhood electrician. I prefer the 1940’s, modern vintage heel and look that can be seen in many shoes on the runway. Also, velvet shoes are a big deal now. Although, I’d suggest taking the velvet trend with a grain of salt. However, I will fully sign-up for the thigh high boots. Provided that you have decent legs, rock them while wearing appropriate hemlines, and avoid the night-walker potential, this trend can be both daring and chic. And despite cycling for several seasons, the punk-rock shoe and inspiration is still alive in shoe-wear. In addition to studs, now pearls are trendy details that are going to be showing up on shoes.

3. Purses

Fall 2013 Purse Trends

 

 

The trend for fur is rampant this season. Purses with fur details were ubiquitous on the runway. Also, the double strap or forever bag is big this season. These structured bags compliment the strong lines and architectural elements of this season clothing designs. Also, pearls showed up in almost all elements of fashion and add sophistication and quiet glamour to bagwear.

4. Scarves and Long Gloves

Fall 2013 Accessory Trends- Gloves & Scarves

 

Staying warm is functional, but these trends make it fashionable. I adore the long leather gloves and plan to live out my Olivia Pope fashion inspiration trough them. Yes, I live in LA… but a girl can dream, can’t she? Major fashion points to anyone who can rock the faux fur (or real fur if you’re balling and don’t have PETA guilt) scarf. It’s certainly a ‘lot of look’ and can be worn to create an impression of opulence. But if paired with inappropriate urban wear (read apple bottom jeans, and glitter top) it can create the deadly effect of tackalicious -hood-rat- ratchedness. Yes, that is a real fear and a real possibility. Don’t let that happen. Stay gathered, by wearing your faux fur only at the most elite of occasions.
