Laura's Faves in Fall Trends

Gorgeous trends are starting to make an appearance for fall! There are way too many amazing styles and materials popping up on runways to cover them all, but I thought I would go over some of my favourites in the accessory world.

Once again, we're in luck. Fall runways are showing big, statement pieces in a variety of styles, and you know how much we heart statement! Some are pulling from art deco and gothic influences while others are going back to vintage styles with large metal chokers and cuffs. Collar necklaces are the common style being seen, with tons of beads and chains to make sure all eyes stay on you. I must admit, in the past, I've gone more towards simple, dainty pieces for myself, but since I started working at I Heart Accessories, I'm pretty excited to leap forward and commit to one like this for fall...

...or maybe this?...

Cuff bracelets are big this Fall with lots of studs, leather, and sparkle. 

 Leather Studded Cuffs, $19

We are also seeing large metal cuffs of plain or hammered metal, keeping it simple yet adding impact such as this one on a Michael Kors model. 

Check out I Heart's lovelies...

I'm also loving that I see animal print and texture everywhere for this fall. Leopard, snakeskin and fur seem to be the top three. 

This reversible bag (personal case included) is available for pre-order on our website. 

 Lindsay Phillips Switchflops, Available in-store only, $95

And for the colder months, we have hats similar to this Adrienne Landau style coming in.

Finally, neckties and more masculine looks are making us smile. This Moschino model is sporting a slim grey ascot. In the shop, we do have a basket of silky scarves in a variety of colours and patterns that would be perfect to use for this look. 

 And let us not forget our friends at Handsome & Lace, who are always right on trend with ALL of their pieces, and have hand stitched this awesome piece just for you.

So, although we're seeing things a little more rough, hard edged and a slightly less flirty, things are still looking as interesting as ever for the next few months. I'm so excited to see what we get and even more excited to share it with you. Stay tuned!

With Heart,
