As this month turns to shorter days and colder temperatures, we start to turn to the more outré pieces in our repertoire, opting for accessories that will layer our silhouette for extra warmth and comfort. From accessories that will be doing all the talking to dazzlingly bright footwear, we are admittedly not downsizing but investing in pieces that will be giving our wardrobe an extra style mileage for seasons to come.

Statement Knee-Highs

Chanel’s AW 2017 Runway Show

Yes, these have been an essential for the past two seasons but rest assured, they have reached new heights this Autumn/Winter 2017 and will be seeing you well into 2018. We saw metallics and sparkles at the Chanel show that was heavily influenced by the space age, foil detailing and frosted, mirror-like, reflective surfaces were quick to become all the rage. A chic and practical way to wear high-shine or glittery knee-highs into a more wearable ensemble is to allow solid-toned coats, knits and heavier pieces to offset disco and other other-worldly elements. Emulate the look by pairing a midi-length pleated skirt with your sparkly party boots or take the unexpected route by opting for a lacy sock-style pair that will instantly elevate your peg trouser and blazer combo with the proper heeled OTK’s.

In the Hat

Military-inspired berets, delicate chokers and navy blue ensembles dominate Dior’s AW 2017 campaign.

A trend that was showcased everywhere from the Gucci catwalk to Dior’s new campaign and that appeared to dominate everyone’s Instagram feed this season is one that proves it will remain a key style element next season too! We are of course talking about the beret. Chic and understated, this new season head-wear option is here as perhaps the most affordable way to refresh our wintery pieces perhaps with an unexpected touch of color. From leather to felt, our favorite street style stars are teaming our new favorite accessory with everything from classic denim and a button-down to an all-black silhouette and a simple red lip. It’s French-inspired chic, the 2018 way and we are all about it.

Modern Tights

Gucci’s AW 2017 Runway Show

One of the most nostalgic trends of AW17 courtesy of this season’s Gucci revival when embroidered and all-over embellished opaque styles were styled under midi dresses in a way that inspired a novelty revival of the accessory we dreaded as fifth graders. While fishnets took center-stage last season as one of the biggest street-style trends and inspired a rather rebellious and daring style revolution, this season’s tights are bright, retro and decidedly, much more up-lifting. Patterns and surface-embellishments will up your dress’ ante and will inject an oh-so-exciting and cost-effective element into your wardrobe. Team with sultry shoes for a sleek silhouette or ankle-strapped pumps for a 1980’s style spin-off.
