September is my January. It’s that time of year when I make my style resolutions: what to keep, what to store away, and what to invest in for the upcoming season. On the top of my shopping list? Accessories – from beautiful boots to luxurious handbags, the abundance that fall has to offer are difficult to resist. Check out a few of my favourite accessory trends of the season:
1. MILITARY: The Military trend remains a top look for Fall. Look for buckles, straps and industrial detailing, like this bootie by Sam Edelman (This boot gets bonus points for being named after my home!) The Vancouver Boot ($215, available at various retailers across Canada and online).
2, 3. NATURE: Beautiful creatures and nature elements dangled from models’ ears, crept on necklines and wrists all over the fall runways. This bib necklace by Candace Ang makes a statement without looking overdressed ($185, available at Goldwyn Online).
I am a bird lover and scarf-fiend, so this piece by JUMA is a must-have on my list ($200, available online and at LynnSteven Vancouver).
4, 5. HERITAGE: Fall 2010 marks a return to the classics. Clean lines, timeless shapes, and luxurious materials hark back to the old days. Think Hermes, Mulberry and Max Mara as inspiration for this look. Until I am able to purchase a Birkin, I will settle for this purse from Urban Outfitters ($48). The classic box shape makes it easy to work into my everyday look.
Hats are the new cool. Try a wide-brimmed fedora, bowler or parlor hat like this twenties style by Brixton ($50, at 80s Purple online).
6,7. FUR/SHEARLING: Fur, faux or real, is back in a big way. Accessories with accents of fur or shearling are a great way to experiment with this trend if you aren’t quite ready to go full out and cop a coat. Urban Outfitters Faux Fur Hobo Bag ($58) and Aldo sherpa-lined clogs ($80).
8. GOTH: Skulls, skeletons and scary stuff are inspiration for the latest looks in accessory trends. Pamela Love (seen on Rumi Neely of FashionToast) creates beautiful, eyecatching pieces. Pamela Love Sterling Silver talon ring ($300, available at Obakki Vancouver and Jonathan + Olivia Toronto, and online at Net-A-Porter).
