If we’re going to jump feet first into new routines this fall, we might as well do it in style.
The season’s hottest accessory trends walk the line between versatile, eye-catching and crisp-weather cool. But don’t worry: it’s not all utilitarian.
Even in a pandemic, there’s room for a little bit of fashionable fun.
Snug as a bug
Fall 2020 runways overflowed with sumptuous blanket capes, big quilted coats and exaggerated knits. And there were delightfully soft accessories to match: furry slides, puffy purses and cozy totes.
Talk about perfect timing!
These days, we could all use a little comfort and warmth — for brisk outdoor dining, perhaps? — in our lives.
We’re finally leaving our houses again, but not without a mask and the new, post-pandemic trifecta: keys, wallet, hand sanitizer. And there’s no better way to carry those essentials than in a bold floral backpack, or a bright, hands-free fanny pack, ideal for a socially distant bike ride. Power clash your mask with some attention-grabbing kicks for a look that’s both outdoor-friendly and impossible to ignore.
For those who love to dress up, don’t let the shutdowns stifle your vibe. Pumps (remember those?) trimmed with feathers — like something Zsa Zsa Gabor would wear in quarantine – and a shimmery bag will make your next round-the-corner date night feel like a trip to the Plaza. Or, pass the time by staging a sparkly, mask-less photo shoot for Instagram from the safety of your own apartment. Who needs plans?
