We are often judged for our fashion sense and appearance. Looking presentable can make a vast difference in how you perceive the world and how the world perceives you. And its significance has been on the rise.
To put things into perspective, Allure surveyed in 2010 and 2015. While in 2010, 35 percent of people agreed that appearances and sense of style help shape personal identity, the percentage jumped to 50 percent in 2015!
It is safe to assume that since then, the role of fashion must have increased. After all, it is being predicted that the fashion industry accounted for $406 billion of revenue in 2019. Online fashion sales are also on the rise.
When people think of fashion, the first thing that comes to mind is clothes. However, there is more to boost your fashion sense than clothes. The prettiest dress can end up looking like a mess if you don’t pair it with the right types of accessories.
This fall, here are some trends you should follow.
1. Go vintage
As we step into the new decade, the fashion industry seems to have taken a few steps back. One of the biggest trends that you might see in the upcoming fall is using your accessories to pay homage to the previous few decades.
You might think that you can only go vintage by wearing clothes pertaining to the previous fashion trends. But, this is not the only way you can pay tribute to the traditional days. You can alter your accessories to be vintage.
Pair your favorite maroon leather jacket with a vintage turban, whereby you use patterns that were famous in the 70s and 80s. By wearing the scarf as a turban rather than the conventional way, you will end up finding the correct balance between the futuristic and traditional fashion.
2. Can there be too many chains and necklaces? Never!
There was a time when most people advocated going minimal when it comes to necklaces and chains, especially in the fall.
However, times have now changed. In this decade, people don’t believe in minimalism. And there is no better way to improve your fashion sense than by being as “extra” as you can!
Rather than choosing among the various chains and necklaces you have, depending on your outfit, you can wear them all. Whether it be chokers or layered chains, you can wear them all together or separately, depending on the look you wish to create.
Gone are the days when people worry about their accessories looking too chunky. As personalization and customization become familiar, you can create any look you want with the resources you have. And no one will judge your fashion sense. They will appreciate your individualism.
This way, all you need is a handful of accessories, and you can end up creating different looks each time! All you have to do is keep changing the style of your chains and necklaces, and voila your fashion sense will become as extravagant as you want it to be.
3. Tassel in everything
2019 saw the rise of tassels. Considering how popular they got, it is safe to say that tassels will continue to reign in the coming year.
Tassels are one accessory you can adorn any item with. Whether it be necklaces, earrings, scarves, or bracelets, they look great in them all. Additionally, if you wear them tastefully, you can wear them in various contexts as well.
This can include both casual hangouts and cocktail parties! If you wish to amp your fashion game and want to be considered a fashion enthusiast, there is no better way to make the statement than by welcoming tassels in your life.
The best thing about tassels is that you can easily find such accessories in a wide array of markets. And that too at an affordable price. This means that you can make a statement without spending too much.
4. Alter between tote bags, cross body bags, and clutches
Sometimes, fashion can be inconvenient.
The good thing about the modern fashion game is that it does consider the practicality and functionality of every style.
Understandably, mini bags cannot be carried everywhere you go, even though they are trendy. After all, they don’t have a lot of storage space! If you are going shopping or going to work, you might not find available mini bags big enough to carry all your stuff.
The good news is that now fashionable accessories are much more practical. As far as bags are considered, don’t restrict yourself to any given type of bag. If chosen correctly, tote bags, clutches, mini bags as well as cross body bags can all boost your style.
The right fashion style for you is the one you feel the most comfortable in. This is because if you feel comfortable in your skin, you are bound to come across as confident. And confidence makes even the simplest outfit and accessory the most attractive one!
5. Mix it up
There is no better way to get people to commend your appearance than by being an authentic representation of your identity.
For instance, just because some shoes are considered to be too casual for men and women to wear in a formal setting doesn’t mean you can’t pull off wearing them at a party!
Modern fashion is highly fluid. The boundaries of formal and casual attire, as well as accessories, has long been destroyed. For a fashion enthusiast, there can’t be better news than this. It means that the sky is your limit.
Choose whichever accessory you think looks best on you. Mix it all up. And you will end up creating a style that people envy.
Be ready for fall!
Now that you know how to accessorize in the coming fall, you are ready to leave them all in awe. Be authentic yet fashionable. Glam it up when you wish to. Tone it down when you don’t feel like dressing up. Your fashion style is solely at your discretion.
