One of our favorite events, Fashion Week for the fall season has finally arrived, and we can't wait to share the trends and looks on our radar! The cooler fall weather invites us to rethink our wardrobes, play with layers and textures, and get bolder with rich colors, especially jewel tones.
By incorporating some of these trends into your wardrobe, you'll be the talk of the PTA meeting, the star at your next big presentation, and the best-dressed guest at all events leading up to the holidays. Which trend is catching your eye?
We can't get enough of the color red for fall this year. It's bold and romantic, and it makes a strong visual statement. You can let your red accent accessory do all the talking, even when you're just wearing a t-shirt and jeans.
One of our favorite red pieces for the season is the Bellaire Hobo from our Bellaire Collection. Crafted with luxe, pebble-grain Italian leather, this hobo is sleek and sophisticated, perfect for everything from errands to adventures. Featuring rugged equestrian details, the bag has a strap reminiscent of bullwhips and hardware inspired by lacy cutouts, combining strength with softness. It will add an instant touch of refinement to any outfit, and we recommend wearing it with chunky silver jewelry for a modern look.
We love chains for their versatility and the layering possibilities. You can always style one chain for a delicate look or wear many together for a bolder aesthetic.
The Ferrara Link Short Necklace is simple and classic yet still stunning. It has a shorter length, adjustable from 16-17", making it the perfect foundation for luxe layers. This necklace will never go out of style.
We can't take our eyes off the alternating design of our Mingle Links Necklace, which features the on-trend elongated paper-clip look with ornate silver discs. Dress it up or keep it casual!
Inspired by the silver jewelry artisanship of Taxco Mexico, the Contempo Sphere Short Necklace features spherical station beads with dimensional scrolls complementing the on-trend-yet-timeless chain links. We recommend layering this with a longer chain.
Fall's all about texture, and this chain necklace delivers. The Pebble Link Necklace has a unique double chain that combines polished and pebbled links for a look that's both classic and modern.
You're a busy woman with places to go and things to see - and sometimes your adventures require multiple bags. We love the functional "double bag it" trend for fall, which is inspired by the jet-set look of travel.
What's one of our favorite double-bag-it combos? We're swooning over the Knox Extra Large Tote with the Kingston Backpack, both from our Heart to Heart Collection, which is all about multi-pocketed, featherweight bags. The tote is extra large and roomy, and the whimsical wildflower print gives it a feminine look. When traveling, you can fold it into one of its pouches for easy storage. The backpack is so comfortable to wear and just as appropriate for a day trip as it is for an extended vacation.
While most people are thinking about fall leaves, we're stuck on fall florals. Who says florals are limited to spring and summer only? We want to keep them in our style rotation with this hot new trend
Our Everbloom Collection is elegant and sculptural, combining the liveliness of flowers with the subtlety of two-tone styling. Inspired by the beauty of the garden, the designer has captured every detail of nature's perfection. These French wire earrings, for example, bring a hand-sketched drawing to life.
Another in-demand trend for fall is gold, which glows with its radiance. Gold's the perfect counterpart for all your jewel-toned sweaters and scarves. We love seeing how it can warm up any outfit.
Our favorite gold pieces are treasures from our Meridian Collection, which is inspired by the imaginary arc that twists its way around the earth. The Meridian Zenith Charm Necklace is the epitome of modern chic with its barrel silhouette and on-trend, dynamic charms. To layer with it, we love the Meridian Zenith Mini Necklace, which is a delicate accent with no shortage of sparkle. Everyone needs a station necklace in their jewelry wardrobe, and this Meridian version is a perfectly timeless piece that you'll find yourself reaching for every day.
