MYNT NEWS: FALL ACCESSORIES REPORT
Posted: Oct 11 2014
This fall is not the season to play safe when it comes to accessories. It’s no longer about just having the “It Bag” de rigueur. Dramatic jewelry, new shapes in handbags and other scene-stealing accouterments are having a turn in the spotlight. So play the part and invest in these three pieces to instantly update your look.
For seasons, it’s been all about the statement necklace. Alas, the fashion tides have turned their attention higher up the collar with the arrival of statement earrings. And we don’t mean standard hoops or little droplets; we’re talking oversized shoulder-grazing, doorknocker earrings. Up your workwear ante with an elaborate pair worn with the Inverted Seaming Blouse or glam up the Asymmetrical Overlay Jumpsuit for a night out. If you’re even more daring, only slip on one statement earring and pair it with a simpler but matching post or stud on the other side.
Slightly more wearable than other accessory trends this season, bucket bags are the shape to carry this fall. They’re the perfect combo of form and function, and the look lends itself to all styles, whether you’re more boho or biker. Pair any style with our Moto Jacket with Zipper Detail for a totally modern look.
As the temperature drops from warmer late summer temperatures to the first cold days of winter, gloves become essential somewhere throughout autumn. But this year, they’re not just a necessity they’ve become a major fashion focal point. The drama comes with the over-the-elbow length and bright vibrant colors. Opt for sleeker, leather versions and don’t wear them with tall boots, a look that can quickly go awry. Slip them on with short no-sleeve tops, like our Faux Leather Shell Top or Open Front Blazer.
