Trend Report: Fall Must-Haves

I am super excited about fall trends including booties, luxe leisure, animal prints and neutrals which you can see in action here. But there’s more! Let’s break down fall 2016 a little further and go deeper with saddlebags, retro ‘70s, colorplay, and lady-like trends.

Margo and CamHands down the “must-have” bag of the season is our saddlebag, Cam. Less is more with this snappy bag that can be worn as a long shoulder bag and as a crossbody giving you the hands-freedom you love. You’ll find this texture rich bag in a smooth haircalf in two solid tones. Cam’s Golden Oak is an of-the-moment play on ’70’s mustard hues — don’t be afraid of mustard! It’s a seasonless neutral that goes with just about any color in your closet — navies, grays, blacks and chocolates. We also interpreted Cam in a deeper, true fall color — a beautiful burgundy red shade that takes you straight through the fall season. Cam is the perfect style for the woman on the go who aspires to be on trend!

Retro ’70s vibes mark the style of the Margo bootie. It’s all about the “go-go” boot this season. These boots take us back to the days of Twiggy and Nancy Sinatra singing, “These boots are made for walking…” They are both fun and super chic. Again, step outside of your comfort zone and embrace the mid-calf height of these boots. They are perfect to pair with your go-to rolled up skinny jeans or with a chic mid length dress or pencil skirt for a more polished look

There is a lot of patchwork out in the market this season (nod to ’70s style once again) and this two-tone clutch is a great way to hit on that trend without going overboard. Find it in pumpkin (some might call it burnt orange 😉 ) with a burgundy back panel, and I just love the contrast of these two tones. Practically speaking it boasts D-rings for the option to wear as a short shoulder bag or crossbody. And the long tassel zipper pull serves as the exclamation point of this bag.

Feeling lady-like? Tap into that feminine strength with Daphne or Fiona. Daphne is a versatile crossbody ideal as a go-to bag that powers through your day whether it’s climbing the corporate ladder or networking in the community. Daphne comes in Jaguar Haircalf and Sand Snake and the gold details really complement both these textiles. Fiona offers a bit more structure, but with the same versatility, in a lady-like bag. She can take you from work to lunch with friends with ease. fall1She has a detachable/adjustable strap that offers extreme versatility in how you carry this gorgeous bag. For a more refined look you can remove the detachable strap and carry it as a top handle bag under the nook of your elbow for a professional lunch and then head straight to the airport, wearing your optional, hands-free strap which makes it easy to make that connecting flight! You will love the striking python and boa textures and colors in this one. She’s a keeper!

Fall 2016 offers something for everyone. There’s so much to play with, and we’re always striving to provide lots of high fashion AND practical details to make your everyday a little brighter.

XOXO, Elaine
