It’s the start of a new season and the fall fashion trends are certainly top of mind. And while we often aspire to be of-the-moment, I would argue that the smartest shopping strategy is to invest in pieces with staying power. The best way to buy now and wear forever? Focus on your accessories.
From the statement shoe to the must-have bag, accessories have become the new look changers. But before you think we’re advocating investing in something that won’t be relevant come end of season, some of fall’s strongest themes saw a return of timeless items. There was the return of the lady bag, which felt modern in a suede croc. If the borrowed-from-the-boys trend has felt a little tired, it got a fresh update in a menswear-inspired spectator heel that retains feminine flair. And in the spirit of discreet chic, gray is the color of the season and what better way to embrace it than with an iconic tote in a fantastic lizard skin.
When deciding what to buy for fall, it’s essential to focus on handcrafted and beautifully designed accessories that will take you from this season into the next—and beyond. We’ve curated a guide to the must-have accessories for fall. Scroll through the slideshow above to shop our selection.
