We know it’s only February and it’s still brutally cold outside, but after seeing what’s in store for fall fashion, we can’t wait for the newest styles to hit stores!
Fall accessories seem to be all about variation this year. Expect to see bags of all shapes, sizes, colors, and textures—including fur! For the girl that loves to accentuate her waist, you’re in luck. Big belts are back and better than ever. Also, with the multitude of fabulous hats that sauntered down the runway, having a bad hair day will be a worry of the past! As for jewelry, gone are the days of chunky layering. Instead, experiment with layering dainty pieces or wearing a single statement piece that gives off a cleaner, fresher look.
