Following the unprecedented year that was 2020, 2021 has seen an explosion in the fashion world of new and exciting trends. We are now starting to think about reintegrating back into a way of life that more closely resembles our pre-pandemic lives, and we want to look good in the process.
Fall fashion is a great way to make use of accessories to enhance our wardrobe, as they act as statement pieces to complement our transitional wardrobe items such as sweaters and jackets.
Below are our predictions for some of the best accessories to invest in for the fall of 2021:
Undoubtedly one of the key fall trends for fall 2021 is the clog. This classic 70s style has been reinvented for 2021 with the popularity of the Birkenstock clog. These suede shoes are incredibly comfortable but also bring effortless minimalist chic to a casual outfit.
Clogs are going to be big this fall so don’t miss your chance to get in on this trend!
A similar style to the clogs can be seen in the popularity of crocs, which has inspired the trend towards rubber shoes of various other styles. Rubber shoes are a stylish but also extremely practical investment for fall as they will ensure your feet are kept dry all fall!
Bottega Veneta currently has a wide range of platform rubber shoes, as do Gucci, but crocs are a great low-cost way to enjoy this trend.
There has been a definite resurgence of the classic country-western boot for fall 2021. Social media can perhaps explain the rise of this trend. For example, boots from brands such as Jeffrey Campbell, Free People, and Ganni all gaining thousands of views and engagement on various platforms.
This trend is perhaps one of the more wearable and practical fall accessories on this list. It is true that after several seasons of the early 2000s-style micro-bag being all the rage, we have entered the extra-large leather tote bag era!
This fall is all about practicality and a large leather tote will look chic and elegant paired with an oversized coat and chunky leather boots.
As with the previously mentioned trends, another accessory trend that has appeared to have exploded on social media this year is the silk scarf.
In summer, fashion lovers online have demonstrated just how versatile the silk scarf can be for fall 2021 as people have experimented with using silk scarves as tops, as headscarves, as a neckerchief, and as a feature when tied to a handbag.
We predict that this trend is not going anywhere and can be updated for fall by investing in more autumnal shades of fabric like brown and black.
The runways for Fall/Winter 21 witnessed the arrival of the oversized gold earring as the statement piece for many collections.
This appears to have entered mainstream fashion, with high street brands hopping on this trend. Expect to see extra-large gold hoops, statement gold shapes, and pearl hoops for fall 2021.
