This season’s accessories mark a significant change in fashion trends, as they show a beautiful mix of the soft and the sophisticated. Fabrics are rich, colors are bold, and the era of investment dressing is back with a vengeance. Gone are the days of the clashing colors seen during the spring and summer, and in their place we find bold single pieces that are able to make a statement all on their own.

In fact, this season has so many luscious bits for you to choose from, it may be hard to know where to start!

The true beauty of this season is found in its versatility. The pieces that you choose this fall are ones that will become staples for years to come, and “Runway” has put together this guide to help you in your quest.

The Chic Chain Bag

A look made famous by the one and only Chanel 2.55, the chain strap is back this season in some new and exciting ways. Bags themselves are smaller, and boast a more petite shape than that of their predecessors. Go for styles designed for across the body wear that will give your look a modern edge.

Cinch Your Shape

The structured coats and soft sweaters gracing the runways this fall are the perfect way to show off your cinched-in shape. While they can be worn loose, you can also pair either of these looks with a great belt to enhance your curves. Styles range from wider belts in soft fabrics that are worn high on the waist, to the skinny patent leather varieties that can be layered low on the hips. Give yourself choices, and you will have endless ways to change your look.

The Classic Scarf

Always a staple when the weather turns brisk, the scarf is being shown in new ways this season. While it is always smart to invest in a classic piece in a rich fabric, these new varieties take a modern twist on this classic choice. This season, knitted collars are being shown in many collections. They can be worn around the neck for warmth, or as a type of hat that fits loosely over the head. Choose a bold color or pattern to pair with a more traditional outer layer.

Make a Statement

Regardless of the type of piece that you choose, keep in mind that this is the season to let your accessories do the talking. It may be a killer set of Dior pumps, or a gorgeous Chanel bag, but whatever it is, be bold, be daring, and be ready to work it!
