Summer to Early Fall Dressing Part 2
One can't go into full fall dressing without the right accessories. Pay attention to the few trends that's emerging this fall:
Structured bags/Day clutches: After two seasons of big, slouchy bags, lady-like structured bags are making a comeback. While most designers sent boxier ones down the runway this Fall, my personal favorite is a day tote by Anna Corinna that's still structured but big enough to hold all the essentials. Another accessory to stack up is a great day clutch that's bigger than its evening cousin. Miu Miu, Prada all made fabulous renditions in sumptious colored satins or leather.
Booties: Get those booties before they are all gone! A friend of mine recently paired a pair of black booties with knee-length pencil skirt, a white shirt with black wide belt for a summer cruise. She looks fabulously chic. Booties are a great way to update your summer dresses into fall.
Belts: I'm not a belt type of gal, however, belts are here to stay and I'm willing to go for another try! Belts are popping up everywhere -- in Marni dresses, in lady-like jackets, in YSL high-waisted skirts...the possibilities are endless. Just don't fall for the trend of wearing big belts that are too wide for your body. Know your waist well and find the right width that highlights -- not hide -- your silhouette.
