From funky fringe accessories to luxe leather backpacks, TODAY style editor and Bobbie.com's Bobbie Thomas shares new trends for the fall season.
While necklaces are still making a statement, more head-turning accents are on the scene this season. In case you haven't heard, from the catwalk to the sidewalk, ear cuffs and even animal ears are major accents for trendsetters. On its 25th anniversary year, BCBGMaxAzria is incorporating these playful ideas and more into its collection with on-trend items such as fun fringe-accented pieces, gemstone chandelier earrings and bold gold ($18 & up, BCBG.com).
If you're looking to update your carryall, consider jumping on board the flared gusset trend. The new silhouette has swung onto the scene thanks to Celine's trapeze-shaped luggage totes, which have surpassed "it bag" status into the haute holy grail of inspiring other luxury labels (and everyone else) to follow its form. While the stylish sides are a signature feature, they happen to add a functional bonus: Laptops, folders, and even curling irons can fit lengthwise! (Trapeze Shaped Totes, $35.90 & up, Zara.com)
Be ready to blush when the delivery man hands you your Nasty Gal package. The provocatively named boutique has collected 2 million social media followers and hit $100 million in sales last year. The edgy website offers a collection of lesser known labels, and just launched a Shoe Cult collection that features revamped versions of vintage styles (Shoe Cult collection $68 & up, NastyGal.com).
