This season is all about bold, eye-catching pieces guaranteed to make you the center of attention. The key, of course, is to accessorize like you’ve never accessorized before: jewelry, hats, socks, scarves, purses, stockings, and gloves—don’t be afraid to build an outfit around these elements!
Try print and pattern mixing, and even clashing colors (hint: reach for bright, vibrant yellows and oranges). Keep your eyes peeled for strong details like fringe, military styling, patches, and grosgrain ribbons. Last but not least, no matter what you do, just when you think your outfit is complete, add one more dazzling accessory and put the more in Everything & More!
As much as we love mixing color and pattern, it’s adding a little texture that takes this edgy, 9-5 ensemble above and beyond! The medallion print and mustard hue of the Standout Jacket draw the eye, as does the vivid brushstroke patterning of the Ferris Blouse. But just when you think you’ve seen it all, we mix in the Flip Skirt—part ponte, part leather, and totally of-the-moment—with its faux leather panel that flips out for a little extra volume and sass. Add a color block bootie and some gold finished accessories to complete the look.
Off-hours are all about letting loose, and that means reaching for comfortable basics and dressing them up with bold prints and even bolder accessories. Start with the Skinny Cord in this season’s vino hue, then mix in the London Tank’s silky rib knit and unique patterning. Next, reach for a statement piece like the Sovereign Coat, detailed with touches of houndstooth and chevron. As soon as you step inside and hang up your coat, let those accessories do the rest of the work! The Heritage Bracelet, Emblem Belt, and The Buzz Earrings pull it all together with pearls, gold, a pinch of python, and whimsical bumble bee charms.
Nothing says casual quite like a wear-everywhere skinny, and this year’s Zip Skinny in must-have hunter green is the perfect place to start when building a lazy Sunday look. Since this Fall is all about pattern, mix in the ’70s florals and polka dots of the Whimsy Blouse. And while we’re feeling this vintage vibe, try the Pepper Cape for a dash of 19th-century charm, and add the Carnaby Loafer for a touch of modish cool. Finish it off with the ’20s-inspired Art Deco design of the Speakeasy Necklace and Speakeasy Bracelet.
