All the Accessories You Need This Fall at The Gardens Mall
September 22, 2017
Now that your fall wardrobe’s taken care of, it’s time to accessorize those styles. Here are the season’s must-have embellishments—with some added options for supporting local business and sustainable, ethical fashion.
Big, bold earrings were all over the runways for fall 2017. This season, think of sleek, sculptural styles, rather than glitzy chandeliers. Support Florida businesses by heading to Lilly Pulitzer: the sea urchin hoops hit the perfect note for the fall. Kendra Scott—the brand that’s donated $1m and 50,000 pieces of jewelry in the past 12 months—has season-spectacular Libby’s earrings in an architectural triangular design and an autumnal Bordeaux Tiger’s Eye deep red stone. And we adore David Yurman’s double-drop earrings in blue topaz, with pavé diamonds.
This fall’s bags are big and bold, even outsized. Florida-based Chico’s has a roomy haircalf tote in on-trend leopard print, and sustainable fashionistas Eileen Fisher have a to-die-for oversized nubuck leather tote. And for the ultimate luxury, treat yourself to Chanel’s large, calfskin hobo bag.
Every which way you look this fall you’re likely to see a floral, but by far the most on-trend way to wear your flowers this season is on your feet. You’ll find a flourishing of floral boots from designers all across the spectrum; we adore Coach’s suede knee-highs with embellished flower detail block heels; Aldo’s floral jacquard boots—the metallic block heels really give them an edge; and Kate Spade New York’s flamboyant, pattern-clashing leopard and floral ankle boots.
When it comes to eyewear, sculptural and dramatic is the name of the game this fall; in shapes, cat-eye and round will be all the rage. Check out Tom Ford’s Farrah cat-eyes, available at ILORI Optical; Alain Mikli round glasses by Oliver Peoples at Edward Beiner, Purveyor of Fine Eyewear; Dolce & Gabbana’s pink statement shades, from Sunglass Hut.
Heavy chain jewelry
In-keeping with the season’s continued maximalist trend, big chains are back. Check out this collar necklace in diamond-cut Cleopatra chain, from Zales; chain-link king David Yurman’s ultra-large oval-link bracelet in sterling silver; and Gucci’s classic gold-chain necklace in 18 karat yellow gold, from Hamilton Jewelers.
