Accessory Trends for Fall 2016

Amidst the dog days of summer, it’s almost impossible to think transitionally. Sale season is almost over, and we must not forget about the joy of owning something that sets you ahead of the pack. A new season is in store and whether it’s a touch of leopard, a sexy ankle strapped pump, or an update to your everyday denim, now is the time to start accessorizing your new fall looks.

With fashion in the full flush of a new, maximalist mood, bags and shoes have taken center stage. On the fall runways, accessory trends were haute heels, the menswear brogue, and the bags that were chained or came with accessories of their own. The forecast: Get ready for your most sumptuous season yet.

TOP KNOT
