This has been a short summer, and before we even realize it, we’ll be wearing our fall jackets. Although some of us may not look forward to fall, accessorizing our outfits this coming season will be a lot of fun. Some designers added accessories full of details and embellishments to their collections. There are so many to choose from. However, I narrowed fall ’09 accessories in four trends: Crystals, Ruffles, Zippers and Studs.
Zippers are coming big in a new and interesting way. We’ve also seen a lot of crystals and jewels used in many ways the last couple of years. For this fall we can see them not only as an accent, but also as the whole body of a shoe or a bag, or mixed with studs and other materials. Some examples are the Valentino Kaleido Vertical Tote, or the Christian Louboutin’s Swarovski crystal round-toe wedge.
We saw some ruffles in the Spring ’09 collections, and the trend continues this fall, as it is in the case of Dolce & Gabbana and Bruno Frisoni Shoes.
And lastly, the one that might be the biggest trend for the fall, and as Dara mentioned in her previous post, Studs and Nailheads are everywhere. Shoes, Bags, Gloves and in anything you want. There are so many designs and patterns you can get and the best part is that you can also have fun by embellishing the accessories you already own and get the look of the hottest accessories of this fall.
