Fall 2014’s Top 5 Accessories Trends


Summer might be far from over (hooray!) but there’s no denying that fall’s hottest buys are hitting stores as we speak. Segue into the new season before the temperature actually drops with a new bag or piece of jewelry or buy game-changing items now (blanket scarf, we see you) and save them for colder days to come. Whatever your shopping strategy the first step in any key purchase is inspiration. Here to walk you through fall 2014’s most notable accessories trends is Shopbop Fashion Director and TZR Contributor Elle Strauss. Take it away, Elle!

Check out Elle's top 5 accessories trends.

1. The Knee-High Boot

"With the '60s trend in full swing for fall it makes total sense to pair your mod-inspired shift or micro mini with a pair of knee-high boots. My faves right now are by Stuart Weizmann, Carvela Kurt Geiger, Belstaff and Sigerson Morrison."

2. The Blanket Scarf

"Oversized scarves were seen wrapped around models on nearly every fall 2014 runway. From Burberry’s boho babes to Tibi's Western-inspired looks, it was all about long lengths with tassle details."

3. The Bucket Bag

5. The Statement Earring

"Celine, Isabel Marant and Louis Vuitton paved the way for the single statement earring this fall. It's the perfect way to add a some edge to the most basic of outfits. I'll be wearing mine with my fave black skinny jeans and a white t-shirt."
