We love summer and everything that goes along with it. However, after checking out what’s in store for fashion this fall, we’re more than ready for the season to change—and we want to make sure you (and your wardrobe) are ready, too! There are certain clothes that most fashion experts agree on are basics to have in your wardrobe. You will always be dressed fashionably for any occasion with these pieces. Naturally, accessories are vastly important to complete your outfit! Whatever the fashion, you need these staples. Since they will last for a while, you can invest in good quality here. Let us have a look at these five designer-inspired Fall 2013 fashion essentials to get you ready for the chilling months to come!
1. Great Pair of Pumps
A favorite go-to seasonless, sexy shoe is really important! We often go straight from work to play, so the shoes also need to be both elegant and comfortable. If the heel is too high, it’s harder to wear them whole day. Picking either a platform, stiletto or block heel will make your legs look slimmer and calves more defined. Get a heel height that you are comfortable with – you don’t have to cripple yourself in 5 inch heels.
2. A Shoulder Handbag
It’s time for a summer-to-autumn bag change-up and our Rimini Leather Shoulder Bag is an ideal pick for fall style. This leather shoulder bag, available in the colors of the season – beige, black, brown or Tuscan red – pairs well with all of the season’s hottest looks. A handbag that you can use as both shoulder as well as a hand-held style (with removable straps) is more functional. It is really worth spending a little more for a quality leather handbag that will last.
3. Jet Set Clutch
Go for a monochrome moment with the Roma Italian Leather Clutch Handbag. When it comes to beauty and style, nothing beats an Italian leather clutch handbag to complement your outfit. Whenever you want to go for an evening out with friends and you just need to look dazzling and sophisticated, a leather clutch handbag would surely make your appearance extremely stunning. No matter what occasion, or year, it will always exude elegance and will complement any event. And that’s why a clutch is one of the Fall 2013 fashion essentials.
4. A Glamorous, Statement-piece Cuff Bracelet
Clothes may be fun, but accessories are really like the icing on the cake! Mix colors and materials to make a statement – uptown glamour, downtown cool – or stay classic. Accessorizing with cuff bracelets means that you don’t have to follow any set fashion rules. A glamorous, statement-piece bracelet only requires the wearer to possess a spunky and adventurous attitude that is essential in pulling off today’s striking looks. This is one reason why cuff bracelets are frequently seen on Hollywood celebrities’ arms. They’re never afraid to experiment and explore with different looks. Whether they are worn solo or stacked, or worn on the wrist or on your upper arms, they make for an unmistakable fashion statement that immediately gets you recognized. There is no end to the many ways you can use these accessories to change your look and that’s why they’re one of the Fall 2013 fashion essentials.
5. A Quilted Leather Jacket
A big trend on the runway, a jacket with a good fit is essential. Combine it with brooches, scarves or other accessories. A neutral color is easier to combine with other clothes, however with all the dark tones floating around in the Fall, a pastel jacket is that perfect brightening piece for your outfits. Try to keep things modern though with a moto-style jacket. A moto jacket gives you just the right amount of edge over everything, from a dress to jeans.
To some people, a good trench-coat is the most important thing for their fall wardrobe. Again, it’s best to choose a timeless color which you can match with different accessories.
