Few of us can afford a big shopping spree each season. Still, a few key accessories can help you revamp your existing wardrobe to highlight some of the latest runway trends for fall and winter. The devil is in the details!
Faux fur collar: A detachable collar (available at stores like Ann Taylor Loft) can be added to your winter coat for an instant touch of retro glamour. Bonus: It’s oh so cozy and warm.
A ’70s-inspired fedora: The fall runways were hugely influenced by the 1970s, and sweeping jewel-toned fedoras ran rampant. Instead of your go-to knit cap (which, let’s face it, always seems to flatten your locks), try a bolder approach with a jaunty fedora. If you don’t want to dabble with a bright hue, try black or charcoal gray, and look for tasteful ribbon trim.
Metal jewelry: Dainty takes a backseat this season as the fashion pack opts instead for chunky metal cuffs and chokers with a futuristic touch. This look works especially well with a tailored little black dress and fitted blazer.
Statement shoes: I’m all for keeping it classic, but there’s something so irresistible about this season’s pack of boots in rich burgundy and midnight blue suede and bold animal prints. Look out for booties with gold-dipped or studded heels. It’s all about having fun!
Embellished gloves: Let your hands do the talking by showing a little personality via gloves with beading, studs, lace, fur, leather, or feathered trim.
