Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 Accessory Trends


#1. Furry Scarves, Stoles and Swinging Tails

When fur crops up, winter is nigh hand at hand. Fur might work wonders, really, providing so many feelings and emotions with a single stroke – warmth, comfort, caress, flirt and goodness knows what else. Fashion diverted from traditional black or brown fur long ago bravely playing with all the shades possible. Cases in point are the fall/ winter 2016-2017 accessory trends that have left us with saucer-eyed at all those fur scarves, stoles and tails in abundance.

Carry your fur stole in hand like at Dries Van Noten or Diane von Furstenberg or throw softness over shoulders like at Alberta Ferretti or Banana Republic, otherwise tightly wrap your neck with ground-reaching fur scarves like at Vetements and Luisa Beccaria. And to get know-how of furry tails, Lanvin and Tod’s are the best tutors here.

#2. Bow-Knot Scarves Are Rocking!

There is no better association with gifts, surprises and other lovey-dovey things than romantic bows. The fall 2016 accessory trends are breezing in many fragile scarves to knot them as pussycat bows and flaunt across the streets perking up the moods of the passers-by. From Marc Jacobs gargantuan statement bow-scarves to more sophisticated samples at Sonia Rykiel, Temperley London, Tory Burch, Gucci and Custo Barcelona, bow-knot scarves should find their appropriate spot in your wardrobe come the cold seasons.

#3. Chunky Knit vs. Skinny

Chunky knit and skinny scarves stand as the next fall/ winter 2016 accessory trend on our list, the former promising ultra-warmth, while the latter ultra-femininity. Which one will you vote for – Altuzarra’s black collar-hugger or Bottega Veneta’s black knitted stunner, Christian Siriano’s yellow and red warmth-providers or Elie Saab’s bohemian swingers? Just stop self-torture and invest in both versions for your future lucrative looks.

#4. Puffer Scarves

When it comes to scarves, it seems that no further innovational style can be dreamt up; some plus and minus operations and that’s all. But Demna Gvasalia’s new creations for Balenciaga truly left us first perplexed then quite enthusiastic with cutting-edge puffer scarves to thrust into the fashion world soon. Yes, the ‘new creative director, new ideas’ scheme seems to have worked quite successfully.

We see those polka dot or striped scarves knotted in artistic ways but a bizarre half scarf – half hoodie sample also comes into view, which is still to be thought over whether to try or not. Puffer style scarf has been spotted at Iceberg as well with logo mania decorations all over it.

#5. Elongated Scarves vs. Mini Neckerchiefs

Loose wrap knitted scarves and mini neckerchiefs also undulated at the recent runway shows thus breaking out a real competition between casual style and romantic twist. Etro brings about pretty striped elongated versions knotted with modern one loop, while at Marissa Webb and Lela Rose we see quick toss casual, yet elegant options. But if you crave romantic mixed with some adventures, Chloe and Manish Arora best fill the bill with their lovely neckerchiefs galore.

#6. Slimming the Body: Corset Belts

No matter how beauty standards have changed throughout the history, thin waists will always be all the rage, as number one femininity indicators. In older times women were wearing corsets underneath their gowns, but nowadays it is just mandatory to wear your corset over the clothing thus creating some very effective color and texture contrasts. The recent fall/ winter 2016-2017 accessory trends are just commanding to zero in on slim waists sending out a plethora of corsets and corset belts.

It is Louis Vuitton and Loewe that are offering some can’t-miss-it head-turners in scarlet red or golden leather, while Miucca Prada’s knitted or leather corset belts mixed with some layered belts and knick-knacks seem to be the best protectors while travelling against a wind. Slim waists come to take the scene at Anna Sui, Fendi, Salvatore Ferragamo, Antonio Marras, Bibhu Mohapatra and Luisa Beccaria as well.

#7. Skinny Knotted Belts

Skinny leather belts always read classic, minimalistic and feminine, but the agenda for today is to add some playfulness to the mix. Nothing can better do it than knotting the fine belts in some artistic ways. Whether worn over dresses, jackets or pants, this lovely fall 2016 belt trend does set the tone enhancing the visage. Trussardi, Altuzarra, Versace, Ralph Laurent, Maison Margiela and Barbara Bui come as the best sources of inspiration for this trend.

#8. Golden Metallic Belts

Just to please your fashion chameleon essence, it’s worth looking to metallic belts as well that are more synched up with eveningwear rather than everyday life. However, if your daily outfit feels too minimalistic and plain, turning to metallic wide belts for a helping hand is just a must. From Balmain’s sleek golden belts to Saint Laurent’s textured luxury-screamers, this fall/ winter 2016 accessory trend is sure to get modern royalty off the ground.

#9. Animal Skin Belts

It goes without saying that animal skins are a hit for the upcoming seasons whether authentic or faux, monochromatic or iridescent. So they could not but touch on the fall 2016 belts as well and become a genuine pillar of support for cold days. We see many colorful reptile skin versions at Burberry cinched around the waists of dresses or puffer jackets and tiled lovely ones at Roberto Cavalli beautifully matched with denim pants. Look also to Jeremy Scott and Antonio Marras to tackle some statement leopard skin belts or to Blumarine to savour fur-reptile skin contrast.

#10. Statement Belts

Are you a personality type marching to the beat of your own drum? Are you adamantly neglecting one-track minds? If yes, then your fashion predilections are sure to sing in unison with your life principles. Here comes a range of statement belts vagabonding through the fall/ winter 2016-2017 accessory trends that always stand out this or that way to show off your genuine essence.

The belt at Chanel is spreading affectionate love with its bejeweled heart-shaped buckle that runs counter to those intimidating skull buckles at Moschino fixed on leather belts and mixed with many jingling chains, while at Saint Laurent and Maison Margiela it is all about oversized gargantuan buckles. The fall/ winter 2016 runway at Dsquared2 was all in topsy-turvy including belts – the bottom parts of tuxedo vests cut to serve as belts and some stud-encrusted leather parts united in apple-pie order to shape cowboy pieces. Check Celine as well to get an eyeful of that fragile belt formed out of linked black tinsel rings.

Fashion designer means constantly veering from stereotypes, throwing new offers, keeping calm and waiting for them to become real trends, much as some designers did previous month while flaunting their fall 2016 new belt styles and their application versions. Chitose Abe, the creative director of Sacai shows a no-grommet belt tied around the waist but offering new unexpected body parts to try your belts on – under butt, around thighs or upper arms. Anthony Vaccarello’s suggestion is even chicer – a scintillating widest wide corset-style belt wrapped around the models’ under-butt area and a mini variant around the upper arm.

#11. Transparent Black Sophistication

Gloves are always provided in abundance whenever the fall/winter fashion weeks set the ball rolling. Starting from the fall’s first wind whistling to the winter’s last heavy snowfall, gloves keep on being the best friends of our hands. The fall 2016 accessory trends are also beaming over with gloves, with transparent black stunners standing out most with their sophistication and delicacy. These charming pieces whether in opera length or wrist-touching, albeit without any warmth-promising slogan on them, have knocked our socks off. Go predictable and wear them on special occasions or else let all formulas go trying them on while going to work.

We see such gloves at Marc Jacobs, both long and short and covered with polka dots, while Gucci’s Alessandro Michele has chosen transparent lace to dream up dizzy fingerless gloves. However, when black sheerness pops up in mixture with chic embellishments, the view is incomparably beautiful like those opera gloves spotted at Dries Van Noten with a pearly string stretching vertically or those magical ones at Naeem Khanscintillating far and wide.

We have never had more leather gloves at our disposal than now thanks to the fall/ winter 2016-2017 accessory trends. They were rendered out in all styles and shades possible, starting from conventional black and brown to some enlivening pop of colors. Chanel’s leather offer is black and silver gauntlet gloves; Alexander McQueen is catering us to reptile skin vibrant pink options; the long leather color-blocked gloves at Louis Vuitton run counter to those delicate super-short ones spotted at Oscar de La Renta and Mulberry, while the black, Airy blue and brown long gloves at Max Mara are exuding strength and confidence.

#15. Granny Chic Socks & Tights

The recent fall/ winter 2016-2017 accessory trends have more often than not thrown us back into our childhoods staring at granny’s sock knitting process and wondering how she is doing it so masterfully. Granny’s hobby is a grand fall 2016 accessory trend at this juncture. So when days start getting colder, do not hurry to tuck away your open-toe sandals, but pair them with warm cozy granny chic socks and rock it throughout the autumn moments especially as so many designs are available.

#16. Colorful and Embellished Tights

Tights are not only meant to keep legs warm and cozy in winter but also to flatter the complexion, to create curious colorblocks with shoes or outerwear and also to display your delicate fashion flare to the audience. We have observed some semi-transparent monochromatic colored tights at Gucci and Anna Sui, a range of floral-printed leg candies again at Anna Sui and Zimmermann, while the knitted argyle-printed tights at Prada are at times reaching the category of leggings when paired with only short outerwear.

Candy-cane-printed and even night blue velvet tights are catching attention at Balenciaga; black-purple striped destroyed tights at Marc Jacobs are adding even more intimidating touches to the mix, while the powdery pink ones on Valentino’s ballerinas are more than eye-soothing. A series of intriguing black tights are arriving from Bibhu Mohapatra, Moschino, Alexander Wang, Alexis Mabille and more.
