I think it’s been well established at this point that I love fall, so I’ll refrain from waxing poetic over the season any more (you’re welcome). But along with all the other lovely things that come with the change of seasons, fall 2012 has some accessory trends that have me pretty excited.
Fall 2012 Handbag Trends
This fall, my very favorite handbag trend is definitely the oversize envelope clutch/portfolio. Could there be a more inconvenient handbag choice than the clutch? Probably not. But somehow that doesn’t stop me from being completely in love. I also really like the look of the top-handle handbags (in all shapes and sizes) and the adorable minaudiere (mini box clutches).
Fall 2012 Footwear Trends
Thank heaven for boots. Seriously. If I could wear knee-high boots all year round, I would. This season’s boot of choice appears to be the knee-high riding boot. And I’m all over that. It’s the perfect, classic boot for every occasion. Not to be outdone, the ankle boot is still going strong. As for heels, pointy-toes and extra-high vamps are everywhere and I love them both.
Fall 2012 Jewelry Trends
This may be where I’m most excited. The jewelry trends are so fun. I love the bracelet cuffs that can be worn by themselves, instead of having to stack lots of bangles together for a similar effect. The bold earrings really make a statement and make me a little jealous of girls with short hair. And the chunky necklaces are perfect for taking an ordinary outfit and turning it into something special.
