Fur is making a big statement, even from head to toe at Marc Jacobs, Fendi and Christian Dior. Fur trim on handbags were seen at 3.1 Phillip Lim, Céline and Ralph Lauren. Now personally, I’d be wearing fur of the faux kind.

Statement Earrings:

Chandelier earrings made a big statement at Balmain. I love the look of big earrings with hair pulled back.

For the rocker girl in me, I love the chains trend. We’ve seen chain bracelets at Givenchy, chain detail on combat boots from Saint Laurent – the grunge/punk rebel/rocker chic is trendy again this fall/winter.

Thigh high boots:

The boot went thigh-high at Chanel and Emilio Pucci. Would you dare to wear?

Ankle Boots:

At the same time, ankle boots were seen at almost every runway as well. They were stacked at Céline, Chloe, Balenciaga. From low heels to high, ankle boots are versatile and can be worn with jeans, leggings or skirts, depending on the style of boot.

Punk Renaissance:

Versace, Saint Laurent and Michael Kors all had a little bit of punk-inspired accessories.


Pearls are still in this fall/winter as seen in necklaces at Saint Laurent, layered styles at Lanvin, and chunky rings at Alexander McQueen.

Embellished purses:

Even purses are making a big statement with chains, studs and fur. Snakeskin hit almost every designer runway, with black at Christian Dior to red at Prada. Valentino elaborated his small clutches with fun beaded studs while Burberry Prorsum’s took a classic clutch to a different level in plaid.

Top Handle Bag:

Top-handle bags are probably the bag to have for Fall 2013 as seen at Dolce & Gabanna and Salvatore Ferragamo. Classic and lady-like, designers are giving the classic doctor’s bag a twist at Bottega Veneta.

The Business-Lady Clutch:

This style of bag was also all the rage at the designer shows such as Alexander Wang, Stella McCartney and at Narciso Rodriguez in geometric patterns.

Cat Eye Sunglasses:

Cat Eye Sunglasses continue to rock the runway this fall/winter at Gucci, Dior and Prada with bug-eyes at Tom Ford.

Romantic accessories:

At Lanvin, the words Love, Cool, Happy, Help appeared in chunky gold jewelry (see photo). Burbery Prorsum’s heart patterned handbag comes with a golden lock while at Bottega Veneta.

  1. I am looking for that perfect bag and I adore the top handled ones. I would like to make the plunge and spend good money on something that will last — Any suggestions? (For example, getting something too trendy would be a mistake).

    As far as the super tall boots – NO WAY!

  2. I love that over the knee boots are trendy again. I just feel like I can’t pull the look off. Maybe I just haven’t found the right pair yet. Don’t care for the fur trend… but like you, I’d go with faux as well.
