How to Transition Summer Accessories to Fall Accessories
With fall fashion starting to appear in stores, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about how to transition your closet for the new season. While there are plenty of opportunities to buy new clothing and accessories for those crisp fall days and cozy nights in, you can still get tons of wear out of your summer accessories to help build the ultimate capsule collection.
One of the first ways to bring your closet into the new season is to identify the pieces that will easily transition. At Judith Leiber, we have a wide selection of accessories that help to do just that. By selecting key elements to take you from summer to winter, you’ll get plenty of wear out of items you already love. This technique also helps you to determine your personal style.
So, to help make your transition to fall fashion super easy, here at Judith Leiber couture, we’ve put together some top tips that will help you style the new season.
Fall handbag styles
A handbag is a statement piece no matter the season, so it’s essential to choose a perfect transitional style. Judith Leiber handbagsare the perfect option for classic and eye-catching style. The variety of choices is ideal for both casual daywear looks and stunning evening attire.
With fall fashion trends just around the corner, there’s also an excuse to purchase something special for the party season. Opting for classic Judith Leiber evening bags such as the Judith Leiber crystal clutch, Micro Fizzy Silver Crystal Clutch, offers a glittering and spectacular look against classic occasion wear pieces.
Purse and clutch bag catwalk trends
The popularity of bags such as the Bottega Veneta Pouch has catapulted clutch bags into the stratosphere for fall/winter fashion. Many designers, including Chanel, Prada, and Khiate, all included elegant options for the new season, and Judith Leiber collections are no exception. The Judith Leiber clutch is our statement piece and offers the perfect designer option to match casual and occasion wear looks.
Prints will also be a big hit in the coming months, and we saw designers such as Versace and Kaia Gerber rocking flamboyant furs and sparkling dresses. To get the look this season, our collections have a fantastic selection of classics such as leopard and snake print styles, including the Fizzoni Leopard and Viper Clutch.
Add gold accents
Gold accents are transitioning into the new season, and there’s no better way to accessorize than by choosing a gold tone clutch bag such as the Judith Leiber Flat Envelope in Soft Gold to compliment your looks. Gold was a big hit throughout summer and looks beautiful against sun-kissed skin. Plus, it transitions exquisitely against warm palettes that are synonymous with fall trends, including orange, khaki, and brown. The Judith Leiber clutch bag collection highlights the versatility of gold accessories. It also showcases how to work shimmering designs into a look that works for both daywear and evening attire.
Keep accessories simple
When we transition into the new season, layering becomes a big trend. However, a great way to avoid overwhelming your look is to keep accessories and handbags simple. Opt for a few statement pieces rather than bringing everything out. Add a classic and unique bag, such as the Judith Leiber rose clutch, and choose traditional accessories to make your outfit pop.
Adapt your summer palette
While summer is full of floaty fabrics and light colors, that doesn’t mean they can’t work for the fall season. Warm tones such as tan, olive, chestnut, and camel pair beautifully with neutral colors, including beige and white. Light fabrics also layer perfectly under cozy sweaters and chunky knitwear. Gold-tone accessories also complement this palette and work with similar clutch bags and purses.
Match your accessories
A fantastic way to tie your outfit together is to match the tones of your accessories. However, avoid going over the top with matchy-matchy looks. If you opt for this style of accessorizing, choose colors that work well together in the same color family rather than sticking to one color for shoes, bag, and belt. Opt for a statement clutch or handbag such as the Tortoise vintage-inspired Art Deco Jazz Age clutch, as these tones work beautifully with classic styling without overwhelming an outfit.
Embrace bright colors
Summer may be the time for bright colors, but that doesn’t mean they have to be stored away until next year. Colorful handbags and clutch purses can make a fall/winter outfit really pop and adds interest to simple styles. The Judith purse collection, such as the Coin Purse Pillbox Cents, is a testament to how well luxury and vibrant accessories work with statement looks without overwhelming your style. Bright colors are also perfect for the party season and add a focal point to classic outfits, such as a little black dress.
Every fall, we see leather or faux-leather separates spring back into action. This trend is the ideal opportunity to create the ultimate rock-chic look, especially when you add luxe accessories. To create the perfect transitional look, opt for leather-look shorts with a classic blazer and statement handbag or purse. While rock/grunge trends are synonymous with silver tones, gold clutch purses can add that luxury vibe while providing a slightly softer feel. What’s more, adding an edgier vibe to your outfit with a purse such as the Stack of Billions clutch is a great way to make it feel unique.
It’s the perfect time to think about how you can work your current closet staples into refreshed looks with fall just around the corner. With Judith Leiber purses and handbags, you’ll have a luxury and classic piece with added pizazz that takes you from spring to winter in style. Accessories are the ideal way to complement a capsule wardrobe and create a style with personality and sophistication. Plus, with party season not far away, you can bring the wow factor to the celebrations with an eye-catching and unique design.
