There was certainly no shortage of fabulous bags, shoes and sunnies during Bloomingdale’s Accessories Trend Show at The Shops at Riverside. The runway presentation on September 15th was hosted by style expert Candace Kristin and Group Sales Manager of Ready-to-Wear and Fashion Accessories Dayna Decker. The ladies showed us all the hot fall trends: from over-the-knee boots and platform sneakers, to mirrored sunglasses, embellished bags, and lots of fur. The packed house of 50 women, who were the first to hear about the season’s must-have pieces, sipped on delicious lemonade cocktails and munched on yummy hor d’oeuvres, while watching the eye-catching show.
Now without further ado, here are the accessories you need in your closet immediately for the fall season. You can shop all of these fabulous pieces right now at their Hackensack store or online.
1. Platform Sneakers
These Fenty by Rihanna White Platform Sneakers deliver maximum comfort, while still giving you some nice, added height. You can rock them with a pair of skinnies for a casual daytime look, or style them with a leather mini for sporty-chic vibes.
2. Embellished Bags
The hot Fall handbag trend is all about the embellishment. Designers are adorning their purses with everything from crystal designs, to pom-pom balls, and beaded patterns. I am obsessed with these two designs from Marc Jacobs. The Embellished Tulip Gotham Tote is a fun and playful take on this trend with its crystal studs and gorgeous floral design. His Small Star Patchwork Saddle Bag is a bold satchel with cool contrasts, like statement star appliqués and sporty striped nylon webbing.
3. Over-the-knee Boots
Via Spiga‘s Ophira Over-The-Knee Boots will certainly take you to new heights (and turn a few heads!). This popular boot style has been growing higher and higher over the past few seasons, finally plateauing to this perfect, just before the thigh height. These beautiful suede babies create a sleek profile, with modestly chic coverage.
4. Fur Scarves
Everyone needs a colorful fur scarf in their wardrobe this season. It’s an easy way to transform any simple look into an eye-popping statement ensemble. Try one of these fab furs (or all three!) from Surell — their super soft Fox Fur Stole Scarves in Blackberry or Blue Frost are to die for, and their Rainbow Infinity Loop Scarf with Fox Fur Trim is a vibrant treat for their eyes.
5. Mirrored Sunglasses
With a huge celebrity following, it doesn’t look like mirrored sunnies are going anywhere, anytime soon. And what’s not to love with their pretty rainbow-reflective lenses!? You’ll be acing two trends in one with Quay x Desi‘s T.Y.S.M. Mirrored Cat Eye Sunglasses. These killer frames will certainly get you noticed.
