Before thinking about what you’ll be wearing for Spring 2013, make sure you know what accessories you’ll be adding to your wardrobe for this fall. No matter what items you add to your autumn outfits, there’s one thing that’s for sure – they’ll be glamorous and statement-making! Check out the major trends designers sound down the runways for Fall 2012.
Weekenders aren’t just for weekend getaways anymore, or so it seems. Designers like Chloé, Fendi, and Louis Vuitton displayed large bags for everyday that are so big you won’t have to worry about how to carry all your things. You’ll definitely make a statement with such a huge handbag on your arm!
There’s always something new going on in jewelry each season, and silver is the big thing for fall. Designers like Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, and Lanvin ignored gold and most other metals in favor of silver and its darker oxidized counterpart. Most necklaces weren’t small either, so everyone will notice the shiny accessory around your neck.
Booties had their moment in the spotlight, but now high boots are making a comeback. Designers like Alexander Wang, Givenchy, and Versace sent heeled or wedged knee-high boots down the runway. Make sure you have tights or super skinny jeans to tuck into these boots once winter rolls around.
We all know what colorblocking is, but designers showed off a new take on the trend for fall – texture blocking. Designers like Dries Van Noten, Jil Sander, and Miu Miu showed shoes made of multiple materials. They’ll make a bold enough statement on their own, so try not to pair them with too many other patchworked colors or textures.
