A wide belt, layered over coats, dresses or sweaters was seen across most designer runways. It’s a welcome trend that enhances a woman’s silhouette in a flattering way. Materials like suede, velvet, or animal prints in calf skin are most on trend for fall.

In stores now:

Silk Scarves

A finely patterned silk scarf will add some polish to the earthier fall ensembles. Wear yours long and untied, or as a topknot to accent your face. Striped silk scarves or long skinny ones finished with fringe are especially in style.

In stores now:

Boxy handbags

The handbag is a literal term for Fall 2017, with boxy styles featuring handles that are meant to be carried by hand. The boxy handbag adds some structure to all the soft, organic suedes, velvets and feminine silhouettes on the runways.

In stores now:

Cross-body bags

The cross-body bag was popular among European designers. Some cross-body bags were so small that they barely held an iPhone inside! To update the look for fall, choose a cross-body bag with metallic hardware, some structure and interesting texture.

In stores now:

Statement bangles or cuffs

Large bangles or cuffs, often combined in pairs, are a great way to add some edge to your outfit. Don’t be afraid to mix and match! Dark metals, unusual shapes and large-size pieces were seen across the runways.

In stores now:

Pendant necklaces

Long-hanging necklaces featuring tassels or a striking tribal or geometric detail are all the rage. And they’re all a monochromatic outfit needs to give it a touch of signature style.

In stores now:

Bold chokers

Victorian blouses  and round collars are a popular Fall 2017 silhouette. There were many stunning and bold, statement chokers that wrapped around the neck or sat at the collar bone to enhance the look.  Regardless of whether you opt for bling, metallic or a bright color, go big and bold with your choker style.

In stores now:

Geometric Earrings

Larger earrings with sharp edges and geometric shapes adorned many models that didn’t sport a bold choker or pendant. Metallics ruled, although color is also be a great option for your fall earrings. Want to take the fall fashion trend to the next level? Mix and match your earrings, or wear one long earring and one short one, eighties style.

It is so difficult for me to just choice one accessories. I’m all about adornment. Funny how some things come and go. I used to wear 1 short and 1 long earring and now it’s back in again.

Almost everything comes back! But always slightly different and sometimes it can take a long time….
