Fall merchandise is flooding store shelves as we speak. This means I am starting to put together what I would like my fall wardrobe to look like. I always look to the latest handbag trends first when planning my new look for a season.
For fall 2017, the hottest handbag trends are top handle satchels, followed by shoulder bags with 1970s inspiration, hobos, and bags with circles; either they are shaped like a circle or have a circle handle, also referred to as a bracelet bag. I already own a circle bag and I find it isn’t a bag I reach for often. The handbags for fall with bracelet handles seem awfully trendy to me.
While I follow trends when it comes to handbags, I don’t buy into ones which I feel won’t swing back into style sometime soon. The bracelet bags, while beautiful, are not considered classic style; therefore, I am going to skip them and focus on the top handle satchel trend, shoulder bags, and the emerging hobo bag trend. These three styles are classic handbag silhouettes which swing in and out of style frequently enough to justify ownership.
This black and white hobo bag offers a classic, slouchy hobo silhouette while offering a trendy black and white color combo; hot fall trend! I love the style and have placed it at the top of my fall 2017 wish list. I also am looking at this Loewe Puzzle Tote. I have wanted a Puzzle Tote for a few years now, but have never pulled the trigger and bought one. I keep changing my mind about which color to get. I love the fall 2017 version with whip-stitching; this might be the one I splurge on.
Lately I have been purchasing gold or rose gold jewelry, it is high time I invest some silver! I love these antique silver earrings. Fringe earring, and statement earrings in general, is a hot trend for the fall 2017 season. Also look for statement necklaces making a comeback!
All black, or wearing a lot of black, is a hot trend for fall. This black dress looks like something I would reach for often. It is a little pricier then I would like, but I love it so much I might just splurge! Dark hues, and traditional autumn colors are also hot for fall.
The 1970s continue to be an important decade of influence for fall. I am loving anything which embodies the vibe of that decade. This wrap dress is screaming my name!
Stay tuned! Later this month I will round up the hottest fall 2017 trends to make it from the runways to the streets for the upcoming cool weather season. What are you wishing for this fall season?
