Accessories can make or break an outfit and this season the options to keep your ensemble at its best involve the most sumptuous and elaborate in years. Fall 2016 runways saw statement bijoux and heels of the haute couture realm all on their own. Bags were textured in materials from fur to tweed and some even carried with them accessories all of their own. Now its time to get set to accumulate the top accessory trends for the upcoming season and get playful with your styling. La Vie Chic brings you the top trends for the autumnal onset.
Elaborate Embellishments and Adornments
The Paris runway for Fall 2016 saw unique adornments on everything from earlobe to stiletto heel and everything in between. Valentino, Armani, Ralph & Russo, along with many more notable fashion houses, set the tone and encourage dazzling with pearls, studs, large hooped and uniquely shaped earrings, as well as dressing up those pumps for the extra statement.
Plush Velour and Velvet
Soft and supple handbags in the material of velour and velvet were making their way down both the Paris and New York runways for the upcoming season in both warm and cool tones as well as neutrals, paired with the it colours of the season, pumpkin, charcoal and emerald greens. Dare to don velvet ankle boots this fall, for the gorgeous anchor to any fall wardrobe.
Furry Friends in Fashion Form
Replace those practical and mundane bags of years gone by with fancified designer pieces of the season including fur trim and accents. Furs in pumpkin, stark white and chic noir shades are the craze for making that bag stand out as unique while easily complementing any neutral or brightly coloured trench of the season.
Cross It On Over
It’s all about the close body, crossover bag this fall in a plethora of designs and hues. From cross-your-hearts to waist-hugging totes, keeping your carry-all close has never been more fashionable from what the best in the world of designer fashion displayed on the runways for Fall 2016.
