Can you believe it? Summer’s gone and we have months of grey skies, rust colored leaves and the inevitable chill of winter to look forward to. That is, however, no reason why you can’t look fantastic and light up those drab autumnal days by bringing a sense of style and glamor with you wherever you go. In a season where, by necessity, you’re going to have to wrap up a little warmer and dress a little more conservatively, you’ll be much more reliant upon accessories to lend a splash of excitement to your look. That said, you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve with just a little inspiration. In fact, with the right accessories you can completely change your look this season.
The look of this season’s fashion is leaning towards clean lines, streamlining and tidy minimalism, and its in accessories where the astute fashionista will find herself bringing the razzle dazzle.
Your best accessory is your face
We know, it’s a shame that you worked your butt off all year to get that great summer bod that you’re going to have to cover up in the colder weather, but while you can no longer wow with your toned curvature, you can still wow with your best accessory… Your face! The takehome message for this season’s makeup trend is ‘go big or stay at home’. This season’s makeup is conspicuous yet classy with statement lashes and dazzling finishes. Eye makeup will favor electric hues and metallic textures and shading. Lips will be rich, deep, warm berry colors to offset the metallic finish of the eyes.
Complete your look with a set of statement earrings. The conspicuous and shapely earring designs that have endured for several seasons show no sign of going anywhere soon and will perfectly complement the metallic finish of your eye makeup.
Use your head
Hats are huge this season! The artsy eclecticism that defines fall 2017 allows for a huge range of styles and textures from furry caps to patent finished berets. All kinds of hats will be emerging all over the high street in the coming months but baker boy hats appear to be the most sought after for the season.
Bag it up
As you’ll see from this article on Five of This Year’s Most Popular Handbag Styles, this year’s bags have, thus far, embraced a retro aesthetic with mustard hues, furry embellishments and metallic finishes en homage to trends of the ‘70s and ‘80s. This season, though, will see a rise in variety of textures with furry finishes particularly prominent. The ubiquitous clutch bag is well and truly back, too and it’s tinier and daintier than ever, although the big names are… doing exactly that, juxtaposing petite clutch bags with huge lettering and labels, sporting their logos loudly and proudly on these tiny accessories.
There’s a whole lot going on in this season’s accessories and it’s a veritable smorgasbord of contrasts. The juxtaposed combination of retro chic and futurism as well as furry and metallic finishes mean that there’ll be something for just about everyone this fall.
