2018 Fall Trending Accessories: 1 thru 5
Depending on where one might live in the Country, the fall can be a beautiful season. I say this because the leaves on the trees begin to change colors. It lets you know that the holiday season is just around the corner. As fall begins to roll in during the month of September, one has to change one’s wardrobe from summer clothing to fall/winter clothing. In preparation is gathering your clothing selection, why not also begin to think of the different accessories which can accompany your ensembles. In my post today, I will cover 5 out of 10 trending accessories for women’s fashion this fall. For the remaining 5 accessories, I will cover in my next post. Now some of these accessories you may already have in your closet which you can jazz up to fit your fall 2018 fashion style.
Accessory #1: Animal Print Shoes
Leopard, snakeskin, zebra and cheetah prints are made out of synthetic material. The style of the shoe from these materials can be worn in so many ways: heels/pumps, ankle-straps, flats, wedges, ballet flats, etc. These animal prints are not only available in shoes but also for sneakers, which are becoming more of a fashion statement these days. The challenge is matching the animal print shoes with the right outfit. Here’s a couple of websites that you may find useful the next time you want to put on an animal print.

Accessory #2: Handbag/Purse (Over-Size)
This is just me but I think every woman loves a good handbag (purse). We even have our favorite handbag designers: Michael Kors, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Coach, Burberry, Chanel, Christian Dior and the list goes on and on. The size of a handbag can be an over-size and still be fashionable. Oh, and sometimes the bigger the purse doesn’t necessarily mean it’s from a famous designer. No matter who the designer is if we like the style we will buy it.
This next statement I’m about to make I hope it doesn’t offend anyone. Now ladies, why do we tend to place almost everything we can think of in our handbags? In the back of our minds, we think we need it but
in reality, we forget it’s in there and never use those items. Then we wonder why are we having shoulder and back pain problems. Could it be we are carrying more than we really need? I’m not going against over-size bags as it’s a fashion trend and used for many things. A word of caution, be mindful not to place too many items unnecessary that will weigh you down.
Now more than ever you will start seeing over-size bags being worn by many women. For one, they are used instead of a book-bag. It’s convenient having an over-size handbag/purse when traveling (instead of a tote bag & a purse). The over-size handbag is also a plus for moms if they desire not to carry a baby bag. This type of handbag accessory can be used for many purposes.
Accessory #3: Scarves
Another accessory item for the fall/winter to accent your attire are scarves. Many of the fashion designers have created unique styles for 2018. Photos of these amazing scarves are available on Vogue’s website.
Also, if you ever want to learn how to tie a scarf in several ways, Bestproducts.com shows you 15 easy ways. There’s also a scarf which can be worn as a top; called a cowl-neck scarf top. Then you have the multi-facet scarves which can be worn so many ways and styled within seconds. Below is a list of scarves styles:
- Madras Plaid Silk Bandanna Scarf
- Patterned Satin Scarf
- Pleated Geometric Scarf
- Floral Extra-Large Sheer Square Scarf
- Triangle Shawl
- Manda Blue Scarf
- Annual Scarf 2018
- Stradivarius Leopard Print Neck Scarf
- Plummets Du Roy Scarf
- Printed Scarf
Accessory #4: Chunky Sneakers
The chunky sneakers (some call dad sneakers). Could they still be fashionable come this fall? The answer is “Yes”. It’s actually one of the cooler runaway trends reported by Teenvogue.com. This goes to show, what might lack fashion to some can eventually make it to the fashion runway. It’s been said that the chunky sneakers are worn a lot by Celebrities when traveling.
Just to name a few Celebrities who wear chunky sneakers:
- Rihanna in Creepers for Puma
- Kylie Jenner in Vans Checkered Slip-on
- Reese Witherspoon in Puma
- John Legend in Mark Nason Shaver Sneakers
Accessory #5: Gloves (they’re more than for warmth)
Gloves no longer are only worn to keep us warm but in today’s fashion world, they help make your outfit stand out! You can now match them to your handbag & top instead of your outer coat. You may want to add the below styles to your fall wardrobe collection from whowhatwear.com.
Leather w/ texture pattern or studs
Colors: Metallic, Neon, Prints, and Solids
Gloves can be worn with jeans & a t-shirt; floral dress; checked coat; and many other combinations of outfits you decide that works for you. So, the next time you pick up a pair of gloves, think “fashion & style”, not just for “warmth” anymore.
Just remember, accessories can make your outfit pop!
It really doesn’t take a whole lot to make your outfit standout when you add accessories. A pair of animal print shoes, a handbag, a scarf or even some gloves can make a world of difference.
